A Request for our Next President

We will soon have a new President. Who will it be? Carson, Clinton, Cruz, Rubio,Sanders, Trump .... who will it be? Regardless of who our next President is, I have a request. Every four years, an extra day is added to our calendar. Leap Day. Or Leap Year Day. Whatever you call it, does it have to be on a Monday? And does it have to be in the winter? I would like to request one thing from our Next President: Can our extra day be on a weekend? In the summer? A nice summer day, about 82 degrees in the middle of the day? And a day when the Brewers are playing a home game? And cool at night? One of the nice summer days when you don't need air conditioning or heat. That's all I'm asking. We sent a man to the moon; for corn sakes this is not too much to ask. Please Mr. President. Please grant my request.

Mountain Lion adds new risk to Cudahy Race

The Cudahy Classic 5/10 is now only 72 hours away! I am doing the 5-mile race and Chris is doing the 10-mile race. Hundreds of runners will meet at Sheridan Park for this annual event. This year's race will be different due to the added risk of being attacked by a mountain lion. Everyone is on edge. There are lots of fast runners, but can they outrun a mountain lion? Because of this danger, I am recommmending the use of BBQ sauce by all runners. Apply the BBQ sauce to your skin, the same way you might apply suntan lotion. That will make you more appealing to the mountain lion, which will make the run safer for me. ( I won't be using it.) I plan on bringing a couple bottles of BBQ sauce and telling people that scientific studies have shown that it makes people run faster. These people are so obsessed with trying to find ways to run faster and I'm a great salesperson. The use of BBQ sauce by the other runners will definitely make it safer for me. www.badgerlandstriders.org

Anytime Fitness Adds 2 New Rooms

Hello Campers! Hope you enjoyed the Fourth and got a chance to see the City of Cudahy Fireworks Display in Sheridan Park! We have been working out at Anytime Fitness in addition to running, walking and bicycling outside. Anytime Fitness has added two new rooms. The first is a room that has jump ropes, stretching bands, mats, free weights and half-ball. The second room is really exciting. My wife calls it the "American Ninja Warrior" room. It is in the back, just past the boxing bag. It has climbing ropes, a peg-board, tires, free weights and a bench-press bench. Heavy lifters and anyone who really wants to increase their upper-body strength will love this room. I used this room last night and Whoo! it is intense conditioning. I am really looking forward to spending some time in the "American Ninja Warrior" room! It has now been two-and-a-half years since I started my weight-training and boxing program and I have gained 15 lbs of muscle. This is proof that weight-training works in middle age. I feel great, sleep great and have tons of energy due to this training program. See you at the gym!
