Building a Complete Home Gym

This has been the longest stretch I’ve gone without belonging to a big box gym since I was a newly minted entry-level PR person barely scraping by in NYC.  Getting into a long-term relationship with a gym is almost as serious as getting into a long-term relationship with a significant other. [...]

Soaring with My Team

I am all about the team bonding. Sometimes we do it with a fry basket and wine; but I really love it when it involves some sort of funtivity. On one of my recent trips to NYC, we decided to try our hand at aerial yoga. I love aerial yoga, it is an entirely different […][...]

Preparing for a Race (with travel)

I was lucky that my first marathon happened to be in my backyard. It was easy to prepare, I simply had dinner went about my normal routine as if I was just going out for a long run. This time though, things are a bit different…given I will be in a hotel and not in […][...]

Race Week Is Here!

After two really incredible stressful weeks where I was home for a total of five days, I am getting ready to hop on a plane again bound for NYC. While I am going early for work, I have to somehow remain focused on the fact that race day is Sunday. I have to be honest, […][...]

Marathon Training Week 13

Week 13 of an 18 week plan probably isn’t the most appropriate time to make changes to your training routine, but when you are sitting in a doctor’s office explaining the pain you are feeling in your left IT band and your doctor says you are probably “heading toward a serious injur[...]

Marathon Training Week 11

This week didn’t go exactly as planned, because….well life. For the last few weeks I have been comfortably busy at work, and then this past week was as if everyone came back to reality.  So my training schedule didn’t go as smoothly as I hoped, and my desire to increase my mileage[...]

WIAW: Sur La Table Cooking Class

Last night we had the opportunity to attend a cooking class at Sur la Table. It was the first time I had ever been to a formal cooking class, and I was so excited. I made sure we were front and center…because I wanted to take everything in. Aaron, Jenna, Josh and I took turns making […[...]

Marathon Training: Week 8

This is what I like to call the cross over week. It also happens to be half way through my training plan…coincidence? I think not. I call it cross over, because it is the first week where your long run gets you to the point where you are committing to doing more than a half. […][...]

Workout Review: PurCycle

When you think of boutique cycle studios you usually only hear about FlyWheel or SoulCycle. For people who aren’t spin aficionados they can be incredibly intimidating and overwhelming. That’s not the case with PurCycle in Delray Beach. The best way to describe PurCycle is a Mom & Pop[...]

Even 20 Minutes Works

I’ve had one of those months, where I am lucky if I spend three days in a row in the same city. This also means that when I am in the same city, I am working significant hours. Mythical “slow season” strikes again. My whacked out schedule really had the potential to derail my train[...]
