I didn’t realize how lucky we’ve been with weather this summer until this week. We’re getting pelted with rain here in DC.
Because of this, I’m not bike commuting or biking home at lunch to walk Leela. Add in a relatively slow work week and my lunch hours are free for strength training.
Today was “one of those days.” It all started when a dog peed on my leg at the dog park this morning. Yes, that actually happened.
Then, my lunchtime tempo run was pushed back because of work. How rude of my job to get in the way of my training schedule. So I ate my [...]
Like I said yesterday, I prefer to do my workouts outside. Whether it be a run, boot camp or a bike ride, I avoid the gym if I can. But I have a groupon for a bunch of workout classes at various gyms in the area + 3 personal trainer appointments, so I’m stepping outside [...]
Sorry for the long posting hiatus. I think it was the longest I have ever taken off from blogging. In the last two weeks I have taken 4 flights, spent over 24 hours road trippin’, and stayed in 4 different hotels. Needless to say I’m excited to get back to normal life.
This weekend I [...]
Hello from the Windy City! I love Chicago so much – I would want to live here if I wasn’t a total cold weather wimp. I had never been to Chicago until a few years ago, but now I’ve been lucky to come 3 times for fun/personal trips and 3 times for work. It is [...]
First things first I had an awesome time in Milwaukee. We ate, we drank, we were merry.

The weather went from beautiful blue skies my first day to a tons of snow and wind by the time I left. I can’t wait to go back this summer.
I kind [...]
Today has been a very long day. I was out of the house at 6:30 am to head to the airport. Highlight of the morning: oatmeal from Cosi. I never really buy oatmeal at restaurants, but it was delicious.
My boss and I flew to Kansas City, and by the time we got the [...]
Since today is Friday, I thought I would do a fun day post of things I’ve been loving this week.
Egg Salad with Hummus I don’t know who’s blog I saw this on, but a few days ago I read about making egg salad with hummus. I made six hard boiled eggs earlier this week, [...]
Since I missed two workouts over the weekend, I decided to challenge myself to complete them both today.
During lunch, I did my cross-train + lift workout. I did 15 minutes on the stationary bike, ~25-30 minutes strength training and finished with another 15 minutes on the bike. I’m happy to report that I’ve [...]
In 2010, I probably did about 5 runs on the treadmill for the whole year. That includes marathon training through freezing January-March, and marathon training through hot & humid June-September.
The funny thing is when I started running my habits were completely opposite. I would run 30 minutes on the treadmill every [...]
