I read a wonderful book last year, and since then, I’ve used it as a resource in different parts of my life. I’ve read parts of this book multiple times, scribbled notes all through it, and underlined passages so I could find them easily again. It’s called “Unlimiting You,” by Randy Spelling.
It’s a self-help book that teaches you ways to Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve had my Bowflex MAX Trainer for 16 months, but it wasn’t until last week, when I visited the Bowflex headquarters near Portland, that I learned Bowflex has free apps for most products, including the MAX Trainer. Why didn’t I know this? I downloaded the app while waiting at the Portland airport, and couldn’t wait to start playing around with it. Read the rest of this entry »

At the end of December, I started a Personal Trainer Food program called RECON. They provided me with a four-week supply of food, and I followed their program diligently. On simple terms, it’s a very low-carb program (no grains, no sugar, almost no fruit), and I was eager to switch up my eating. So for the past month, I’ve been enjoying their food (which is basically all proteins and veggies), and having meals like this:

The month flew by! It seems like it’s only been a few days since Read the rest of this entry »

I must’ve written reams about my three days in Seattle and Portland (case in point: this post and this post), and I’m almost done, I promise. Just one more post, because this was a successful weekend in addition to my stair racing endeavors. Why? Largely because of snacks.

I woke up in Portland on Sunday with a very peculiar combination of feelings. I was still riding high with pride, thanks to my record-breaking performance during the Seattle Fight For Air Climb just 24 hours earlier. I was was also sore, achy and stiff, also thanks to that Seattle race, because racing up 160 stories is, to put it mildly, difficult. Then, when I flung open the curtains in my hotel room and saw the race venue right across the street, I started feeling really, really nervous.
The US Bancorp Tower (which the locals call ‘Big Pink’) is about the Read the rest of this entry »
