I’m DONE with Birthday Burpees!

March 20, 2015

My birthday was two weeks ago, and I wanted to celebrate with a big physical challenge. So I set up a social media challenge. It was simple: I shared a special image on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+, and every time you guys liked, shared, or retweeted it, I had to do burpees.

You guys didn’t mess around. 24 hours later, the count was up to 970. Nine hundred and seventy burpees.

I promptly got to work. I set up a highly technical burpee tracking system (involving a Read the rest of this entry »


Burpees are Hard! (Birthday Burpees Update, Part 1)

March 9, 2015

My lesson of the week: When I ask all of you to challenge me on my birthday, you guys deliver! I posted photos on social media on Thursday, and said that I’d do burpees for every Like, Share and Retweet. The Likes, Shares and Retweets began immediately… and continued… and continued. 24 hours later, you guys had assigned me 932 burpees. 932! It makes me Read the rest of this entry »

A Terribly Awesome Trip Up Jacob’s Ladder

February 18, 2015

Remember the Jacob’s Ladder? Probably not. I’ve only mentioned in once before, in a blog post last May, but it’s a challenging cardio device that’s basically a never-ending ladder. It’s also a Bible story, but that’s a whole different blog post (on a completely different blog).

A New Training Personal Best?

February 13, 2015

Stair race season is in full swing. I’ve already raced twice this year, and my next race is soon, in Detroit! In April, I’ll be racing in the Aon Center in Los Angeles, and they open up the stairwell at certain times for training purposes. That’s how I ended up, the other day, on the 55th floor.

On Sunday night, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra held their annual gala. It’s the fourth time that I’ve volunteered to help out. It’s a Read the rest of this entry »
