I’m back from a week in Michigan for Christmas, and spent lots of great quality time with family. I was determined to stay focused on my health and fitness all week, and made lots of wonderful choices, and some not-so-wonderful ones, too. I’ll get into all of that, but first… SANTA!
That’s Lynn on the right. Our families have been Read the rest of this entry »

What do you do after racing up the stairs in the tallest structure in Las Vegas? YOU CLIMB SOME MORE!
My Scale the Strat experience was phenomenal (read my recap here), but Las Vegas is home to a plethora of tall buildings, most of them hotels. And you didn’t hear this from me, but Read the rest of this entry »

I spent Christmas on a fantastic vacation in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. My whole family met up there, and we stayed at an all-inclusive resort. And, like many all-inclusive resorts, this one had a lot of buffets.

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted on here, and that’s because I just spent a week in Europe! I went to visit my friend Katherine in Sweden, but on my way there, I had a long layover in Iceland. And even though my stay was short, I made the most of it.
My plane landed in the middle of the afternoon, and the airport is Read the rest of this entry »

Poke – pronounced po-kay, but I pronounce it wrong (po-key) all the time – is a Hawaiian dish of raw fish marinated in oil, soy sauce, scallions, and other aromatics. It’s a food trend at the moment, and one that I hadn’t Read the rest of this entry »

Want to eat healthy while visiting Chicago? Stay with my sister Laura. Seriously. I’ll give you her number if you want. (No I won’t.) I stayed a few days with her after the Hancock race, and she made making good choices while traveling super easy. And her dog Conrad is a cutie!
Conrad is 13 years old and completely blind, and I love hanging out with him! Laura has been on her own health kick for quite some time, and she’s still going strong: Read the rest of this entry »

What a fantastic weekend! My high school friend Emily got married to a great guy named Rich, and that was an excellent reason to head to Phoenix for a few days. Here I am with the bride, and our high school friend Heather:
That’s Heather’s husband Adam photobombing us in the back! You may remember Emily from this post, which has a photo of her in one of her jaw-dropping ballroom dancing costumes, but she was also 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.
My trip fell during my final week of my month doing the Read the rest of this entry »
