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 [...]

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[...]

How Yoga Transforms Your Body

Since Adam Levine was named People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ last week, there have been countless articles detailing how yoga gave him that body, how it improved his sex life, and helped him remain more focused.  We’ve heard Gisele say that yoga was what got her figure back aft[...]

The Ultimate Yogi: First Impressions

A wise person wrote on my birthday card recently “the “9s” are harder than the “0s.” It is as if I wear my anxiety ridden mind on my sleeve, because turning 29 has been stressful. It is entirely my fault too. I mean what was I thinking at 22 setting career and life goal[...]

CrossFit Crazy Pants

If you’ve never seen true CrossFit athletes do their thing, you are seriously missing out. I’ve been to one or two sessions where I do some beginning WODs, and once while I was lunch the Reebok CrossFit Games were on ESPN. Other than that though, my interaction with CrossFit has been reg[...]

Workouts That Are Leaving Me Gasping

I am currently in what I will call a “trainer transition period.” Essentially, I’ve used up all of my training sessions and I am not entirely sure I want to sign up again. The last few months have been so busy, that making time to get to the gym is hard enough without having to [&h[...]

I’m In Need of a Detox

This isn’t the first time I’ve contemplated a detox, but lately I’ve just really been feeling like I need it. I’m cranky, sluggish and feeling a little bloated…like all the time. Maybe it is the stress. Maybe it is all the travel. Whatever it is I need a swift kick in t[...]

Revolve Cross Cycle Challenge

Hello friends, it’s been awhile. The last few weeks have been pretty busy…I always think August is going to be slow this year it was anything but. However, since I basically shut down if I don’t exercise I did make time to attend Revolve’s Cross Cycle Challenge. I was jealous[...]
