My Current Workout Regime

I just moved, with my husband, across the country – from LA to NYC.  I was doing weekly sprints ( more like monthly, but I was doing them!), sporadic strength training, and occasional walks with my hubby.  But then we started packing! Since the first empty box was opened until now (except for a brief…

Getting around Injinji!

Don’t get me wrong.  I *love* my Injinji socks.  I’ve just got a tight budget right now and can’t buy enough for every day of the week!  So how do I wear my Vibrams without buying a ton of special socks?  Simple.  I make toeless socks. They’re like fingerless gloves; but they’re for your feet! It’s…

Wet Grass

I went down to the Rose Bowl for my sprints this morning.  The grass had received a buzz-cut and it was rather wet. My vibrams ended up looking like this! It was a good workout.  I ran further and faster than ever and felt great afterwards.

CANADIANS AREN’T ALL LAW-ABIDING!

Here’s a report from the Atlantic about some Canadian’s who are bucking the law for the sake of their health and/or their pocketbook!  Well, I suppose I can’t say why they’re doing it.  But I know why I would! First of all, as fellow Canadian Meghan points out (in this excellent little blog post), good eggs…

A Hobbit Home!

I like eco-friendly, low-impact, sustainable, recyclable practices. I buy organic, local, grass-fed, pastured, raw food and even just got a plot at a local urban garden! So when I came across this home, you can imagine my delight! The builder is a photographer! I think this photo is beautiful. Can’t you just imagine sipping hot…

Inspiring Women

I didn’t watch the Golden Globes. I was at a friend’s home, for a party, and we were enjoying our various meals together. Ryan was watching the live updates from the Golden Globes’ website on his iPhone and would periodically call out a new winner. We all groaned when Avatar won and cheered when Christoph…

Coffee Shop Girls

My husband Ryan, when he was younger, had often imagined himself dating a coffee shop girl. But when he married a former McDonald’s employee (that’s right – I worked drive-thru!), he thought he’d have to give up that dream. However, once I got my green card, I needed a quick job before I began the…

Forget That It’s New

Back in December, I did too much activity in a short period of time and my body rebelled. On a Thursday, I went to a free class at California Kickboxing in Pasadena. They kicked my rear end. I took a fall in the beginning of the class onto the mats, but I was fine and continued….

Merry Christmas!

We tried to send out Christmas card this year. We designed them. Printed various versions. And were planning on putting together our mailing list, when suddenly we had no time left. And now it’s January. Oops! So I’m going to post our Christmas cards here for the world to see. Here’s the front: And here’s…

Tasty Trailers: The Social Network

I can’t believe I hadn’t heard about this until now: The Facebook Movie. It’s called “The Social Network.” Aaron Sorkin is writing with David Fincher directing.  Due in 2010.  They kinda do have a built in audience the size of a large country!
