  1. Sixth

    by , 12-08-2014 at 08:28 AM
    Not good enough to make the team and I will have only two chances left.

    I was in the pool of five and lost two, which meant I was seeded ninth. I defeated #9 to go up against #1 and lost 9-10

    my main mistake? fencing cautiously

    The vet combined was just for fun. I won all but one of my bouts. excepting that one, I am happy with how I adapted. I easily won my first DE but then I was up against Dawn Wilson and lost 6-10. i note it was hard fought and ...
  2. Aimless thoughts

    There is nothing so dangerous for the health of your blades than fencing epee against a saber fencer.

  3. LFC open epee 11/30

    by , 12-01-2014 at 10:49 PM
    Well that was a good day. Both the epee and foil events were quite strong. We got the epee off a little late because one of the fencers was across the street and couldn’t find the club. But with him we had a perfect 21, and we ended up finishing on time anyway.

    Goals for the day were to fence better, maybe win a bout, and not finish last. My first pool bout was against a B junior who was the eventual winner. Got a one-light and a two-light, and that was it. Then fenced one ...

  4. SN Day Schedule up

    by , 11-26-2014 at 06:59 AM
    The day schedule has been posted.

    The good news: I will not be traveling on the busiest dates

    The bad news: I will need to burn more vacation time than I would like.

    This is the first time since I've started fencing that I've seriously considered skipping the SN. If I am out of range for the team, what does it matter? I would be spending at least $1K to fly in and out to fence one event and I would be burning at least 3 days of vacation. I could ...
  5. Fat

    I've kept a close watch on my waistline for as long as I can remember and I've always tried to keep my weight within a given range for purely health reasons. However, once I go over that upper limit I have an unhealthy tendency to develop a "Who cares?" attitude. Unfortunately, I've slipped a little too close to that cliff and what's worse, I don't CARE!

    I've dieted and exercised all my life and I've reached a point this winter where I'm tired, I'm in pain, and I am tired of giving ...
