Tough Mudder Incoming

Less that 6 weeks until the Tough Mudder and I'm seriously behind on my training.  With the move and job search I've been slacking lately with the workouts.  Heather and I got up this morning and jogged a quick couple miles, but that's the first run in a few weeks (sad I know)...Sooooo less than 6 weeks till Tough Mudder and I've got to kick things into high gear.  I'm still doing well weight wise - down 21 lbs since I started this blog back in April.  I'd still like to lose another 10 or so before the race.

We'll be doing the Beachpalooza in Galveston at the end of September as a warmup - its a 3 mile obstacle race on the beach in Galveston and it should be a blast. 

I'll be posting at least training recaps from now till then to help keep myself accountable!

On a different note, I had a great interview today so maybe things will be turning around soon on that front.

Finally - I posted this video a month or so ago on Facebook but if you missed it check it out!

While I was living in Ohio this summer I often rode my bike past a house on hwy 84 that was covered in writing.  In addition to the writing on the house there were signs in the yard and the van parked in the driveway was also covered in writing.

Obviously someone was trying to make a statement.  It turns out the guy that lives there is in a 10+ year litigation regarding his brother.  I don't know near enough details to even begin to form an opinion on the matter. 

What I do know is that his brother got in trouble with the law, there were supposedly two separate automobile crash sites, both of which were the spot where his brother had wrecked his car.  According to the guy who lives in the house, there are all sorts of conspiracies upon conspiracies that make this ordeal more and more of a mess.  Throw in a few crooked lawyers, dirty judges, his mother's will and some unscrupulous friends and this guy has become obsessed.

Or maybe he's just passionate?  Anyway - here are few shots from his house - quite an interesting guy, quite an interesting place.
