This post begins with a fantastic workout. I started by doing the signature program on my Bowflex Max Trainer: the 14-minute Max Interval program, which alternates short bursts of high intensity work with longer recovery periods. It’s a challenging 14 minutes…

Nice backlit selfie, right? I was in Orange County for work on Friday. I finished at 6pm – the worst possible time to hit the road for the hour-plus drive home. So I stalled by going for a run in a super cool location! Read the rest of this entry »

The end of the year is fast approaching, and I’m in the home stretch with my 2016 races. My last two are both in December, and the first was on Saturday, at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.
This race is called Hike the Halo (benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation), and it’s my Read the rest of this entry »

I ran a race over the weekend and it kicked my ass. I’ve done some tough races in my day, and even though this was only a 5K, it ranks up there among the most difficult. Why? HILLS. More specifically, HILLS and STAIRS. These are the stairs at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook. They’re colloquially known as the Culver City Stairs.
There’s 282 stairs carved straight up the side of this hill. They’re made from recycled concrete, and each one is different: Read the rest of this entry »

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 »
