Seeing Indianapolis on a Bike

July 26, 2016

I mentioned in my last post that a recurring foot injury prohibited me from taking many of the group fitness classes offered during the Fitbloggin’ conference, but I sure didn’t stay sedentary. I rode a bike around the city… TWICE!

Indianapolis has a fantastic program called the Indiana Pacers Bikeshare. There are stations all over downtown – including Read the rest of this entry »


My Third Fitbloggin’ Has Come and Gone

July 24, 2016

Every year, bloggers from far and wide gather for a few days of education, camaraderie, and connection at the Fitbloggin’ conference. It was my third year going, after attending in Portland and Denver. This time around, it was in Indianapolis, which meant I could finally cross “canoodling with a statue of four-term mayor William H Hudnut III” off my bucket list.

A High-Octane Workout… and a Milestone Three Years in the Making!

July 20, 2016

Two topics to discuss today, both relating to exercise. Let’s get to it!

A HIGH-OCTANE WORKOUT. My buddy Geoffrey is a triathlete, a tri coach, and a group fitness instructor. He extended an offer to me last year to come and take one of his classes. Since I’m finally in town, I was able to take him up on his offer.

Book Report: See Jane Climb

July 19, 2016

Compared to most other sports, stair racing is rather unknown. When I tell people that I race up the stairwells in skyscrapers, more often than not, the response I get is something like, What? Really? Is that a thing? But that’s slowly changing. Awareness is growing, thanks to articles (like this one, featuring me!), stories on the news (like this one, featuring my friend Lisa!), and other press. So when a book came out all about the sport, I devoured it in a couple sittings.

July 17, 2016

Surprise, surprise! I ran a 10K race over the weekend! And in a beautiful setting. Check out these views!

There are two countries in that photo. Downtown Detroit, part of the good ol’ U.S. of A., is on the right, while the buildings on the left are in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. HELLO, CANADA! And I’m standing on Belle Isle, in the middle of the Detroit River. Belle Isle was the venue for the race, which makes sense, because the race was called “Escape to Belle Isle.”

With 982 acres, Belle Isle is the largest Read the rest of this entry »


Food Photos, Food Photos, Food Photos!

July 14, 2016

I’ve been at my parents’ house in suburban Detroit for over a week now, and it’s been a good time. A hot, humid, good time. Thanks to my relatively new commitment to logging my food on My Fitness Pal (21 days and counting!), I’ve been paying better attention to what I’m eating, and how much. And I’m taking photos of my meals. Wanna see some?

Anyone want to guess what I’m doing in this photo?
