Why I Changed My Training

For the last few years (read at least six), I have been a devoted runner. While I may not have crossed the finish line of more than 100 races, I have still completed at least 20 halves, 2 fulls, and a smattering of 10Ks and 5ks during that time. After this past running season (training […][...]

Spinning Might Be My Third Love

It is kind of sad that in order for me to get to a spin class these days, I have to be in NYC. It’s not that Delray doesn’t have spin studios (PurCycle and Flywheel aren’t too far away), it is just that their class schedules aren’t really conducive to mine. It is partially my[...]
