I don’t want to sound like an asshole, but lately these posts have been harder to write because I had trouble finding lows. Thankfully running regularly again after a few months of no running took care of that problem.
High workout of the week: MY BIKE COMMUTE! Sorry, but I had to scream this one. [...]
This weekend included:
Exercise Biking around town Drinking with friends Cleaning FUN running
A while back, I signed up for the Davita Kidney Rock 5K through Schwaggle for only $17. I was out for drinks with Alex on Friday night when we discovered we were both running it. I was not excited about the 6:30 [...]
High workout: A 22 mile bike ride with my brother Kevin and my dad on Friday. As you all know, my dad is a bike fanatic and my brother has officially been sworn into the cult after moving to San Francisco. We spent a lot of the ride catching up and it was fun.
Have you ever played high-low? It’s basically a way to catch up with someone by telling him or her the best part of your day (the high) and the worst part of your day (the low).
Here are some of my high-lows of the week:
High workout: My first mid-week run in way too long. [...]
Thanks to public shaming I woke up and ran this morning! I did not go to the track like I planned, but I did 3 hilly miles. Better than nothing.

Today I read an article about exercise-commuting in the NY Times. It got me thinking about how I hope I never have to give it up. Yesterday I ran home from work. Today I rode my bike in and back home. Both are faster than public transportation and much less of a headache. I recently [...]
I hope everyone had a wonderful three-day weekend. I’m a little sad to go back to real life tomorrow morning, but at least it will only be a four day work week.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting Stephanie while she was in DC visiting family. She is training for the Marine Corps [...]
Friday morning started bright and early with a 3 am wake-up call. Neil kindly drove my dad, me and our bikes to the Bike to the Beach starting area in downtown DC. Leela came to see us off too, of course.
It was pitch black, but I was ready to hit the road. We [...]
This weekend was very fun, but also VERY exhausting. I can’t remember the last time I stayed out until 2-3 am THREE nights in a row. Admittedly, one of those nights was Harry Potter, but two were drinking and dancing until the wee hours of the night.
Bride & I (wearing wigs for [...]
This morning I went to Hains Point for a mid-week long-ish bike ride (25 miles). Hains Point is a haven for bikers and runners – it is a mostly car-free loop through East Potomac Park in DC. My dad rode down from Maryland to meet me for a few laps.
I’ve only been riding my [...]
