October 15, 2014

I love when packages get delivered – it’s always so exciting to open the box and see what’s inside. I recently received an enormous delivery – some of the biggest boxes I’ve ever seen!

I Don’t Stalk Celebrities (But This Post Will Make You Think I Do)

October 1, 2014

After about a week-and-a-half away from the stairs, it was time to resume training. I have two races in Chicago coming up in about a month, and I want to be ready! Plan A was to head downtown to train in a skyscraper, but I ended up working late, so that didn’t happen. Plan B was training on a new-to-me public stairway in the Hollywood Hills… one that just happens to be down the street from a major celebrity’s home! Here are the stairs:

And that’s just the first third of them. Here’s the rest: Read the rest of this entry »


New Roommate AND Recovery Time

September 24, 2014

I have a new roommate. In the past, I’ve been known to make this pronouncement whenever I find Brussels sprouts on the stalk, but this time around, my roommate is a living, breathing thing. Meet Luna:

Box Jump Challenge

September 17, 2014

Have you heard about this heat wave in southern California? It’s been over 100 degrees in my next of the woods for the past week. Good times. Welcome to September! The ridiculous heat thwarted my workout plans the other day. I was planning on doing my final stair workout before my next race on a new-to-me public stairway in the Hollywood Hills (that ends down the street from a big time celebrity’s home!), but I didn’t wake up early enough to go before it got too hot. And it got too hot at, like, 9am.

So, I had to improvise. Read the rest of this entry »


My Current Favorite Workout Songs

September 11, 2014

Every once in a while, I share what I’m listening to on my iPod. Music is an important part of my workouts, and I’m always on the hunt for new songs and artists to throw into the mix. This post has some of my current favorites. Maybe one (or more) of these will strike your fancy! And maybe you can share, in the comments section, the songs you love!

I might as well call this list the Read the rest of this entry »


A Week With My Mom

September 8, 2014

What a fun week it’s been. My mom has been in town since Tuesday, and she’s leaving today. She’s on a little tour visiting most of her children – first my sister and her family in Colorado, then me, and next up to the bay area to see my brother and his family. (I have a sister in Chicago that didn’t make this itinerary, but they saw each other a few weeks ago).

The Los Angeles leg of her tour coincided with a wedding we were both invited to (my dad was invited as well, but he was unable to come out), so on Saturday, we got spiffied up to celebrate the nuptials of our friends Greg and Ali. I clean up good!
