Many Races Are Challenging, But None of Them Measure Up To The Red Bull 400

May 15, 2019

I love getting high. And before any of you jump to conclusions, I’m talking about stair races. I’ve raced the stairwells in all sorts of tall (and very tall) skyscrapers, but this past weekend I got to experience a whole new way to get high – by racing up a ski jump at the Red Bull 400.

This is an absolutely bat-crap crazy event, and it had my stomach in all sorts of knots. Read the rest of this entry »

I Miss My Bowflex HVT!

April 23, 2019

The most difficult thing that I moved from California to Michigan was my new Bowflex HVT machine. It was challenging because it’s big, bulky, and awkwardly shaped. It’s an awesome machine, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not easy to get around!

That right there is a piece of home exercise equipment that Read the rest of this entry »


My New Exercise Bike Made the Move From California to Michigan

April 18, 2019

When I moved to Michigan, I didn’t bring tons of stuff. I sold a few things, tossed out a few things, and donated a heckuva lot to thrift stores. I didn’t bring any furniture – just clothes, books and knick-knacks, and kitchenwares. The biggest items that went on the moving truck were my exercise equipment. I’ll need to work out in Michigan!

That’s my Schwinn Classic Cruiser. It’s an exercise bike, but with some really fun features and qualities. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s Been Months Since I’ve Trained in a Stairwell… and I Feel Like I’m Back at Square One

August 29, 2018

Hello stairs!

If I had to describe my look in that photo, I’d say I was apprehensive. And that’s because it’s been months since I’ve trained in a skyscraper stairwell – since April – and I knew this workout was going to be a challenge. And it was. Read the rest of this entry »


I Had An Awesome Stair Workout in Pontiac, Michigan… Until the Injury

July 12, 2018

So many stairs!

That’s me on Tuesday, in front of a huge stairway at the Phoenix Center in Pontiac, Michigan. I grew up about 20 minutes away from here, but had never been here before. It’s a pretty neat facility… but most of it is closed to the public. Read the rest of this entry »
