Many Races Are Challenging, But None of Them Measure Up To The Red Bull 400

May 15, 2019

I love getting high. And before any of you jump to conclusions, I’m talking about stair races. I’ve raced the stairwells in all sorts of tall (and very tall) skyscrapers, but this past weekend I got to experience a whole new way to get high – by racing up a ski jump at the Red Bull 400.

This is an absolutely bat-crap crazy event, and it had my stomach in all sorts of knots. Read the rest of this entry »

I Miss My Bowflex HVT!

April 23, 2019

The most difficult thing that I moved from California to Michigan was my new Bowflex HVT machine. It was challenging because it’s big, bulky, and awkwardly shaped. It’s an awesome machine, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not easy to get around!

That right there is a piece of home exercise equipment that Read the rest of this entry »


My New Exercise Bike Made the Move From California to Michigan

April 18, 2019

When I moved to Michigan, I didn’t bring tons of stuff. I sold a few things, tossed out a few things, and donated a heckuva lot to thrift stores.

That’s my Schwinn Classic Cruiser. It’s an exercise bike, but with some really fun features and qualities. Read the rest of this entry »

First things first: I lost a card game when I was in Colorado last week. The punishment was running barefoot through 6″ of snow. It was cold. And it was all captured on video by my nephew Sam. Enjoy!

Two thoughts about that video: Read the rest of this entry »

I Raced Up The Tallest Building in Seattle! (Big Climb Race Recap)

March 28, 2017

It’s a common misconception that the Space Needle, Seattle’s most iconic landmark, is also the tallest thing in town, but that’s not the case, no sir. There are actually six skyscrapers that are taller, with the tallest, Columbia Center, reaching over 300 feet higher than the Space Needle.

On Sunday, I competed in the Big Climb Seattle, a race up 1,357 stairs in the Columbia Center, and it was a momentous occasion, for a couple of reasons: Read the rest of this entry »


3WAYS2 Exercise More During the Holiday Season… or Any Time of Year!

December 5, 2016

Finding time to exercise is hard. Talk about an understatement! We’re all busy to begin with, and now we get to add on holiday parties, Christmas shopping, putting up decorations, and all the other fun stuff that comes during this time of year.

Plus, so many people plan on starting anew with their health and weight loss goals in January, so who cares if you slip a little (or a lot) in December? I DO. I want you to be Read the rest of this entry »
