March 25, 2015

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 »

November 12, 2014

I’m back home after my trip to Chicago, and I have a few final pictures to share. First up… salads! I ended up enjoying a nice streak of delicious entree salads while in Illinois (see photos in this post and this post), and my streak continued Read the rest of this entry »

I Don’t Stalk Celebrities (But This Post Will Make You Think I Do)

October 1, 2014

After about a week-and-a-half away from the stairs, it was time to resume training. I have two races in Chicago coming up in about a month, and I want to be ready! Plan A was to head downtown to train in a skyscraper, but I ended up working late, so that didn’t happen. Plan B was training on a new-to-me public stairway in the Hollywood Hills… one that just happens to be down the street from a major celebrity’s home! Here are the stairs:

February 17, 2014

I can’t remember the last time I was up early enough to see a sunrise. Yesterday, though, I saw a beautiful one… while in the middle of a fantastic stair workout. Here’s the sunrise…

These awesome stairs are known as the Culver City Stairs, and they’re at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook. How I ended up there was a happy accident.

Sidelined

December 11, 2013

I’ve been forced to take a unplanned hiatus from exercise this week, thanks to an annoying and painful injury. I think I have a bruised rib. It’s the worst.

Ironically enough, I injured myself while exercising. (Perhaps that isn’t actually irony, but it is when you use the Alanis Morissette definition.) I was out for a run on Sunday afternoon when Read the rest of this entry »
