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 [...]

Getting Back Into a Florida Routine

Now that we are officially unpacked, we are able to get back into our routines. I never realized what a creature of habit I was until it was physically impossible for me to keep my habits. Even when I am traveling a lot for work, I have a routine…which is easy to do since I […][...]

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.
