A Sick Performance in San Francisco (Fight For Air Climb Race Recap)

March 30, 2015

Two Race Recaps, back to back? Yup, that’s what can happen when you compete in four races in one month, which is what I just did. First, stair climbs in Detroit and Phoenix, then the Warrior Dash last weekend, and now the American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Climb in San Francisco.

These races are often in landmark buildings, but this day had a bonus landmark. We drove over the Golden Gate Bridge to get into the city!

I got a little dirty this past weekend.

That, my friends, is MUD, and it was a whole lotta fun getting that muddy. It happened at the Warrior Dash, a 5k race that combines running with a mud-filled obstacle course.

I’ve been hearing about races like these Read the rest of this entry »


I’m DONE with Birthday Burpees!

March 20, 2015

My birthday was two weeks ago, and I wanted to celebrate with a big physical challenge. So I set up a social media challenge. It was simple: I shared a special image on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+, and every time you guys liked, shared, or retweeted it, I had to do burpees.

You guys didn’t mess around. 24 hours later, the count was up to 970. Nine hundred and seventy burpees.

I promptly got to work. I set up a highly technical burpee tracking system (involving a Read the rest of this entry »


Burpees are Hard! (Birthday Burpees Update, Part 1)

March 9, 2015

My lesson of the week: When I ask all of you to challenge me on my birthday, you guys deliver! I posted photos on social media on Thursday, and said that I’d do burpees for every Like, Share and Retweet. The Likes, Shares and Retweets began immediately… and continued… and continued. 24 hours later, you guys had assigned me 932 burpees. 932! It makes me Read the rest of this entry »

Elite and Extreme in Arizona

February 25, 2015

Today’s blog post is brought to you by the word “Renaissance.” The word has multiple meanings. It refers to a period of cultural rebirth in European history, stretching from the 14th to 17th centuries, but it also can refer to any period of new growth or renewal of life.

One could argue that, in the past five years, I’ve experienced my own renaissance by embracing fitness and healthy eating, and taking command of my own health. In fact, I’d argue that until I was blue in the face. (And my family and friends will vouch that I’m a stubborn bastard that LOVES a good argument.)

But today’s post isn’t about my renaissance, it’s about… Read the rest of this entry »


Oops, I Did It Again

February 23, 2015

Well, replace “did it” with “took Britney Spears’ favorite workout class” and “again” with “for the first time.”
