DoTerra Trimshake Fudgescicles

Summer is approaching, and who doesn’t like all things ice cream? After ordering the DoTerra Chocolate Trimshake I soon started experimenting with using it in a variety of ways and recipes. I searched online and found this recipe for Fudgesicles. I made modifications to the recipe based on what I had, but I used this for a reference. […]

Gear Review: Orange Mud HydraQuiver

Throughout all of my training runs and races, I’ve noticed that once I stop for hydration I slow down considerably. I can finish in a much better time if I don’t have to stop for a drink. Of course, it isn’t very smart to run past all the stops in a long distance race, or you’ll […]

Race Review: Prairie Fire Spring Half Marathon

Today I ran the 2016 Prairie Fire Half Marathon, as part of the Prairie Fire Back 2 Back challenge. I finished in 2:02:51, so I suppose I will continue chasing my first official sub-2 hour half marathon. Below is my official race review, but please note that you can find more reviews for this race and […]

Mini Pizzas

While preparing my menu for the week I ran across this mini pizza recipe. To make this recipe you will need the following ingredients: Texas Toast garlic bread Pepperoni Pizza […]

Waldo’s Running Playlist Top 10

Some runners forego the headphones for time to think without distractions. I’ve seen a lot of interviews with influential runners that insist their best ideas come to them while running, specifically without music. Personally, I don’t like to run without some music playing. Every now and then I’ll opt for a comedy album to mix things […]

It was time to take down my Easter welcome sign that had been hanging on our front door. I found this Hydrangea Wreath idea from Our Southern Home, […]

DIY – Grandkids Sign

My Grandmother’s Birthday was this month. I searched for the perfect gift, and couldn’t find anything in the stores. I decided I would try to make something for her, so I searched and found the perfect idea. A “Grandkids” sign that she can hang pictures of her several great grandkids. There are 8 great grandkids under […]

DIY – Flower Letter 

Easter Weekend has arrived, and with the running around to festivities and activities I decided to take part of my Friday to make a DIY flower letter. I got this DIY flower idea from This is an easy project that requires just a few items: – flowers – hot glut gun – wooden letter I purchased these […]

DIY – Wooden Wall Letters

Once we bought a house I immediately decided I needed a bunch of tools for the garage. My dearest wife, Meghan, indulges my manly desires from time to time when a new project comes around. They haven’t all gotten done, and I’m no expert, but I’ve been able to do most I’ve set out to […]
