Thanks to my stair race training and the new classes I’ve been trying, I’ve been working out all over town. Since I’m a big nerd when it comes to geography and data, I decided to map it. Here’s all the places I’ve worked out during the month of August (so far):
Here’s what the numbers correspond to: Read the rest of this entry »

Two friends from college came to town over the weekend. I’ve known Katie and Julie for about 15 years now. I see Katie once a year or so, but it’s been about 5 or 6 years since I’ve seen Julie, so it was really fun to reconnect. I picked them up from the airport, and since Julie had never felt the Pacific Ocean lapping at her feet, we went straight to the beach.
Since I have the longest arms, I Read the rest of this entry »

Thank you, everyone, for the outpouring of kind words about my Robin Williams post last week (click here to read “What I Learned From Robin Williams’ Passing”). A bunch of people shared it on Facebook and Twitter. It appears to have resonated at a time people were looking to make sense out of a confusing, devastating turn of events.
The most thought-provoking conversation I had about it was with Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been working out all over town thanks to ClassPass, which gives me access to fitness facilities all over the place without needing a membership to any of them. You can learn more about ClassPass in this post (or at their website). Wanna see what I’ve been up to? Read the rest of this entry »

There have been a few occasions in my life where I’ve resisted the urge to chuck a lime at someone’s head, like Mrs. Doubtfire did, and then blame it on an unknown assailant who committed a “run-by fruiting.” I paid close attention to “Dead Poets Society” – shedding plenty of tears in the process – because it was the first movie that prominently featured teenage suicide that I saw after I tried to kill myself during my teenage years. And I can’t count the times that I’ve turned to Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve now climbed the stairs in FIVE different skyscrapers in downtown Los Angeles! I added the fifth to the list just the other day, when I attended a training session at the Wells Fargo Center, which reaches 55 stories above the ground.

Like most human beings, I love presents. Especially when they show up at my door! Who doesn’t like opening a package? It’s fun when you don’t know what’s inside, but it’s just as fun when you do, and you’ve been waiting days or weeks for it to arrive.
I got a package recently that was very fun to open. That’s because it was full of snacks! Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now. I’m glad I finally tackled it, because this post will make me feel good, and it’ll make me feel proud, and those are two feelings that I enjoy feeling! It’s also super nerdy, and I love that too!
My last post included a cardio miles update. Like I said in that post, I log every mile I complete doing any form of cardio. I’m up to 1,093.6 miles since I started last summer. That’s a lot of miles! So many miles, actually, that it’s hard for me to comprehend. And so I turn to Google Maps. Ladies and gentlemen, if I left my house and traveled 1,093 miles, I’d be… near the Colorado/Nebraska border!
