I’ve Been Secretly Training in a Downtown Skyscraper… and I Can Finally Talk About All of It. (Well, Most of It.)

June 26, 2017

Last Friday was a big day. It was the final day that I could climb the stairs in the 41-story Ernst & Young Building in downtown Los Angeles. I was so sore and exhausted from a good week of workouts that I could only manage two climbs (more on that later), but it felt great. Except for when I laid down after the workout, and it hurt to get up.

My Pride-Filled Weekend Was Also Filled with Mucho Amounts of Exercise!

June 14, 2017

Last weekend wiped me out. Literally. It made me ill. I spent Monday and half of Tuesday barfing, thanks to an upset stomach. (I’m feeling much better now, thanks for asking!) But you know what? It was worth it! It began on Saturday, when I participated in the 36th Annual Pride Run.

This Isn’t the Post I Intended to Write, But It’s the Post I NEEDED to Write

I have a whole list of blog post topics I could be tackling right now: recipes to share, new workouts I’ve tried, solving an exercise-related math puzzler, but right now, at this moment, I feel drawn to write from my heart. So guess what? That’s what I’m going to do!

Stairs + Obstacle Course = A Unique and Rewarding Race Experience! (Tower 2 Tower Race Recap)

June 5, 2017

I had a nice six-week hiatus from racing, but on Saturday I pinned a bib to my chest and a timing chip to my shoe, and participated in Tower 2 Tower, a fun and different stair race in Oxnard, California. This race is special because it’s the only race I’ve done that involves stairwells in two separate buildings. The race begins with a climb up the 14-story City National Bank Building…
