1. Swift (and everything else from WWDC 2014) I’m not going to lie — I haven’t been more excited about an Apple keynote in years. It’s as if Apple has spent years quietly laying the groundwork for massive changes, enduring endless criticism from its biggest fans, only to unleash all of the improvements in one, […]
The Moov Fitness Tracker
I came across this earlier today on The Verge and immediately recognized its potential. Called Moov, it’s a wearable fitness coach that works with your phone to provide real-time feedback while exercising. It looks very cool.
I’m going to be honest — I’m not in great physical shape right now. I’m not here to make excuses, but I am going to tell you how I’m going to change this and get into the best shape of my life.
I really like the idea of these diet/fitness journal websites that let you track your weight, exercises, and food/calorie intake. Lots of other people must too, because if you do a quick search, you’ll see hundreds of software tools that promise to help you accomplish these tasks. If you’re a data nerd like me, the […]
The Food-Health Care Link
This morning I once again had the opportunity to invoke Berberich’s Law: Not only did someone write the blog post I meant to write a month ago on the seldom mentioned relationship between health care and what we eat I, but it showed up as an op-ed in the New York Times by Michael Pollan. An excerpt: […]

Running the Fargo Half Marathon
Tomorrow morning at 8am I will start my first ever half marathon in Fargo. One year ago I ran in Fargo’s 5K fun run, and since then I’ve been able to keep training and improve my speed and distance. Witnessing the start of last year’s Fargo Marathon was a great experience, so I’m ready and […]
Yesterday morning I had the opportunity to participate in the 5K fun run/walk portion of the Fargo Marathon. I had never witnessed the start of a marathon before, so it was very inspiring to see thousands of people begin their 26.2 mile trek across the city of Fargo, including my friend (and former supervisor), John […]
This Christmas, my big gift from Casey and the boys was a shiny new (red) iPod nano that replaces the 3+ year old 3rd generation iPod that died on me over six months ago. It was a great surprise, and is an amazing piece of technology. Seeing Cover Flow on a tiny 2-inch screen is […]
I started off my 28th birtday this morning by jumping on our newly acquired treadmill for the first time. Why? Well, after losing 30 pounds in about four months early last year, a newborn baby, a new job, and a new home have taken their toll. I’m now back up close to my starting weight, […]
