I am a very lucky man – I’ve got an amazing wife and am the father to three wonderful kids. Lylli was born on Halloween in 2008, Gracie was born November 2010 and although she only lived for 17 months, she will remain as much a part of this family as the rest of us, and Mickey Gray, our first son, was born in June of 2012. I’m not going to say that life has gone exactly as I would have wanted, but it is a good life and I am determined to make the best of it.

This blog is an attempt to document my quest to become a dad that my family can be proud of.

Its Turkey Thursday

OK -- so we'll call today a small hurdle. For years I would partake in
the Thursday lunchtime ritual of eating the Turkey day feast in the
cafeteria in the 100 S Washington building. I have been gone for just
over a year and ever since starting this new contract with Wells Fargo,
I have been eagerly awaiting the first Thursday that the cafeteria was
open, since last week it was closed for the actual Turkey day
(Thanksgiving). I have to admit that my food for the day has not been
the greatest. A mocha and breakfast sandwich for breakfast and now a
Turkey day lunch. This is going to be harder than I thought. I
mentioned earlier that I had been doing some planning. If I can carry
out this plan successfully, I will be training (using the couch potato
to 5k course) to run a 5K in March. I would then spend the following 15
weeks to train for a half marathon (maybe the Gary Bjorkland at
Grandma's in Duluth on June 16th). If I can pull that off, I would like
to spend the following 15+ weeks preparing for the TC Marathon. I have
had many of these master plans and to be perfectly honest have very
rarely followed through, especially these last few years. But they say
the first step is to write down your goals, so there you go...
