Born to Run

At our wedding, my mother-in-law jokingly expressed a wish that my “athletic genes” would be more prominent in her future grandchildren, since her sons never really had a strong desire to be active. I never really thought much about what genes had to do with it…I mean I just had a [...]

March in Review

Had a really busy March, which included a lot of travel, milestones and changes. So let’s start from the top! Weekend in AZ: Where I learned hiking is not for the weak A few of my favorite colleagues and I had the opportunity to attend Kurt Warner’s Ultimate Fan Experience at the beginni[...]

A Change in Weather Will Do You Good

Things have been pretty hectic around the Cohen-Landsman household. Lots of traveling and move prepping. This past weekend, I headed down to South Florida for apartment hunting and given the ridiculousness that is Winter 2014 a much needed weekend of warmth. With the I’m focusing on simple sh[...]

I Think I’m Scared to Run Again

I’ve taken a much longer than anticipated break from running. I don’t really know how it happened. There was that disaster of a race over the summer, and then I just slowly got more focused on yoga, and then P90x 3 came into my life. Then of course this ridiculous winter happened, where [...]

Bringing the Sweat Without the Stink

If you are like me, you have a love/hate relationship with yoga. My brain tells me that I shouldn’t be sweating just from my prep stretching before class even starts, but then at the end of class–I have better flexibility, higher energy levels and I sleep like a baby. All great benefits.[...]

The day I defied gravity

I’ve always found the artists who do the beautiful dancing on the ribbon hanging from the ceiling just exquisite. They are so graceful while they are hanging 20-50 feet in the air, and so strong to only be hanging on by their feet! Closest I will ever come to that is aerial yoga, and that [&he[...]

Training for a Good Cause: Team Challenge

Way back when I started this blog, nearly three years ago, it was in part to track my first major race — a half marathon. I didn’t do it alone though, because I am not as fancy as many runners out there. Since I had a family connection (my dad), I decided to do it […][...]

On My Healthy Lifestyle Radar

Every January I make a promise with myself to stay out of the gym, and workout at home or by running outside (polar vortex obviously has that on the sideline). I just can’t handle the crowds, fighting for machines, my favorite spin bike or these people. So I pull out my trusty DVDs, or go [&he[...]

Planning a Fit Vacation

Beginning Tuesday we are taking our first extended vacation in two years, a trip to London and Amsterdam that we have been planning since January. Yes, I did put in my PTO in January and saved most my days off for these next two weeks. In hindsight maybe not the best idea because I am insanely bur[...]

Continuing my yoga kick

I just finished up my first 36 days of the Ultimate Yogi program. To recap, I am back in 2s for skirts, down 4lbs and feeling amazing since I have been sleeping better. I hadn’t really thought about it, but because of the commitment to yoga I was getting up at the same time every […][...]
