The Friday Roundup

This Friday Roundup thing is becoming a habit.  A dirty, dirty, bad habit.  Get ready from some random Interwebs fun.

My wife has some pretty awesome friends and those pretty awesome friends of hers have pretty awesome spouses.  One of those pretty awesome spouses it named Brian and he writes a blog about his fitness goals.  This isn’t just some random dude writing about his workouts.  This is a funny, insightful and honest guy writing about what it’s like to do what he does.  You feel for him, you laugh with him (and at him sometimes) and—most importantly—you root for him.

Plus, he lobbied to be The Roundup.

Check out Brian and his blog, Racing Home.  He’s posting twice a week right now, but after the huge traffic spike he gets from this post, I’m sure he’ll start posting more often.
