It means... Read more »

How does one even begin to sum up a week of 5 races? Especially when that week of races happened during Chicago’s first major heatwave of the year. Of course, I didn’t have any idea the weather would throw me for a loop when I signed up so I just had to make the best... Read more »

I’d never done Bike the Drive before but since I’m currently training for Venus de Miles I knew I wanted to participate in at least one longer, supported ride before July 28th.

Grant Park Turkey Trot 5K: Home Turf Race
My usual Turkey Trot race is either the 10K or the 5K at the Lincolnwood Turkey Trot the Sunday before Thanksgiving.  However, due to various circumstances I ended up not running that event.  Too bad as it’s one of my favorites.  However, that didn’t mean I skipped the turkey trot tradition this year.  Nope!  I...

Women's Workout World Turbo Kicked to the Curb
I have a gym in my apartment building but what I don’t have is ready access to group  fitness classes.  However, instead of joining a gym just for the classes I decided that I would stalk Groupon and buy group fitness class deals.  Not only does this expose me to a variety of workout locations...

    I'm a 30-something who decided to get off the elliptical and expand my fitness horizons. Since moving to Chicago in 2008 I've run marathons and biked miles. I've done group fitness classes and lifted weights on my own. And now I want to share my fitness finds with you!
