Check out my new kicks!
I purchased the sneakers as part of a celebratory day. Remember, in my most recent weigh-in post, when I showed how I had reached 4,000 Cardio Miles? At that point in time, I hadn’t decided on a reward for that milestone. But then I did. And the shoes were part of it. Read the rest of this entry »

If you wanted to see some hail in May, you should’ve been in Colorado last weekend. Last Saturday evening, during a brief but violent storm, it hailed pebbles of ice.
I’ve lived in Los Angeles for nearly 16 years, where Read the rest of this entry »

Me, at one my favorite walkable places, a pedestrian footbridge over a freeway near my house.
After pushing myself really hard for a really long time, I decided to take a break from intense, rigorous exercise. But I couldn’t bear the thought of being completely inactive, so I established a rule: Read the rest of this entry »

Last weekend wiped me out. Literally. It made me ill. I spent Monday and half of Tuesday barfing, thanks to an upset stomach. (I’m feeling much better now, thanks for asking!) But you know what? It was worth it! It began on Saturday, when I participated in the 36th Annual Pride Run.
This was my second year participating in this event, but last year, I Read the rest of this entry »

I’m so excited to be on a break from racing. I’m not doing any races in May, and I’m going to enjoy that. I’ll still be exercising, but with a little more freedom, as there are no looming stair races in the near future.
I’ve earned this reprieve. I competed in seven races during a nine-weekend span, so, yeah, I’m pooped! (Six of them were stair races, and the seventh was Read the rest of this entry »
