Employees Only - If The Shoe Fits

One of the things that's changed since I was a kid buying running shoes at the mall is that shoes can be scientifically calibrated to the individual. This is actually pretty cool, but add the cost of special moisture wicking socks, ultra light weight shorts, endless amounts of energy gels, bars, drinks and training tools like GPS trackers; you'll start thinking that the old pair of $15 dollar Nikes you have getting dusty in the closet is looking pretty good.

Employees Only - Personal Best

So far training has been full of ups and downs. I think with anything difficult you have to grab onto the little victories along the way. In my case I have come to realize I can totally kick my 16 year old ass in distance running, which is something...I guess.

Employees Only - Training Day

There are such things in this world, that people actually sign up for, and pay for the privilege of participating in. One such event is within a month's time, and I find myself pushing my body and resolve to get ready for the damned thing. Not because I'm a guy with anything to prove, but because my friends asked me to join their team.

Then I found out that I couldn't join their team when I signed up because it was a company team.

So, now I'm doing it because there will be comics to make about it; in which case I suppose my pain is potentially your pleasure...

...as long as I don't break my fingers next month.

Employees Only - The Mix Guest Comic

When the Mix offered to do this week's comic, I knew I'd get top grade material, so naturally I jumped at the offer.

Incidentally I will also be doing a comic, but this offering will hopefully tide you over until I actually finish it.

Employees Only - A New Me

Priorities tend to be more exciting when they're not real. I honestly think that I've given more dedication to finishing video games than I have to most other things in my life. It's probably lucky that I never really enjoyed things like MMOs otherwise I may have never graduated from college.

Despite that, I'm good on the resolutions front this year. I don't want to jinx it or anything, but things are going alright, and I'm happy to keep on doing what I've been doing. And no, I'm not just playing video games (although a controller tends to find its way into my hands from time to time).

Here's hoping you find yourself in a similar situation as we start off 2012; and if you're diving into an ambitious resolution to make a better you, best of luck!
