Compared to most other sports, stair racing is rather unknown. When I tell people that I race up the stairwells in skyscrapers, more often than not, the response I get is something like, What? Really? Is that a thing? But that’s slowly changing. Awareness is growing, thanks to articles (like this one, featuring me!), stories on the news (like this one, featuring my friend Lisa!), and other press. So when a book came out all about the sport, I devoured it in a couple sittings.
The book is called “See Jane Climb: How Competitive Stair Climbing Changed My Life,” by Jane Trahanovsky, and it’s a Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been staying with my sister Laura ever since I arrived in Chicago six days ago, and while I shared many of our adventures in my last post, there’s something else I want to share: Laura has lost 64 pounds over the past nine months, and I’m so proud of her!

There was more produce in my fruit bowl and fridge than normal. I was pretty stocked up before my sister and niece came to town, and then I added to my stash at the farmers market. There was fruits and veggies everywhere.

Seems like punishment to weigh myself on a day known for pranks and practical jokes, but I established my own weigh-in calendar, and weighing myself on the first of every month, including April 1st, is part of the deal. And this is no joke: I’m up two pounds.
I’ve been pretty good lately about not getting bummed at weight gains. I have a lot to be proud of, and I’ve accomplished so much, but this one stung a little bit, if only because Read the rest of this entry »

I already spilled the beans in yesterday’s post, but here it is again: DOWN FIVE POUNDS!
I’ve already written a lot about this weight loss, and while I probably repeat myself a lot, I’m not gonna do this time. Click here to read all about it!
