Greetings from Minneapolis.

If you stumbled upon this blog I hope you’ll tag it and come back from time to time. If you were invited, thanks for stopping in to read and/or comment on these pages.

You’ll find no epiphany in the words I’ve left behind. But they may make you smile. These writings serve as one outlet for me as I live the suburban life of a Minneapolis resident.  Content may include stories about my efforts to stay fit, expand my own knowledge base, cheer on friends and family members in their life efforts, and extoll the benefits of residing in a state that truly has four seasons.

In addition, you may read fabulous entries about my training to be a triathlete. At 42 years old, it’s been a goal for several years to train for and compete in a triathlon. Swimming, biking and running. I do only one of them fairly well. The other two are chores and leave me feeling completely my age. But come June 3, I’ll enter a lake with 1,000 other triathletes and, if I’m lucky, finish without embarassing myself too much. So come along for the ride (or swim, or run).

Life is good and getting better. My two teenage kids bring out the best in me, work keeps me (mostly) out of trouble and then there’s the triathlon thing. It’s helping to move me toward getting in shape and feeling good about myself. Strength and accomplishment helps fuel optimism as well!

As for the title of this first entry, I realize the phrase is usually “up to no good.” But on the contrary, I find myself up to many good things. Let this blog be the site that preserves all that is good about living.
