Random Day(s) at the Range: Spring 2018 Edition

It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted one of these articles (see some prior iterations here, here,  and here).  Though my writing productivity for the blog has slowed a bit in recent months, I am happy to say that I have been shooting a bit more than last year. Changes The biggest change I […]

Theory vs. Practice

I have written before, in passing, about my long-time interest in football.  As much as I love a long pass completion or a big hit (those that are allowed these days), what I really love is the chess match.  Old high school and college notebooks of mine have the margins filled with offensive plays and […]

2017: Training Goals

Last year, I took the time to get some training/practice goals posted so then I could at least roughly evaluate my progress by year’s end.  Frankly, as a teacher, I should do a better job of setting goals that are measurable and achievable within a year.  For this post, however, I am going be more general […]
