    This post was sponsored by Hyatt Place as part of its Seamless Travel Series. The opinions are my own and based on my experience.  Rise and shine! Being on the road doesn’t mean taking a break from my healthy habits. Sure, I’ll splurge a little bit here and there – I mean, that’s the fun part […]


    Our Savannah Babymoon

    February 21, 2014


    Our babymoon in Savannah was absolutely wonderful. Truthfully, it was probably one of the laziest and most laid-back vacations Mal and I have ever taken together, but it was exactly what we wanted. Since I wasn’t in blogging/work mode, I didn’t document every little thing we did, but I still wanted to share my experience […]



    Mal and I spent the weekend in God’s country (also known as Vermont). We were invited by Hotel Vermont for their very first Farmers’ Dinner at Juniper Bar and Restaurant, so we drove up to Burlington on Saturday morning. (Both our stay at the hotel and dinner were complimentary.) We arrived at the hotel around […]

    Good morning! Happy Tuesday! I woke up bright and early to meet Kerrie for a track workout this morning. My half marathon training plan had a speed workout on it for today, so we decided to tackle it: 2 mi up, 2 x 200m (:45), 2 x 800 (3:40), 1 x 1600 (8:10) –> full recovery […]

The hotel has free internet in the lobby, so […]

    Greetings from Cabo! Mal and I are in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico as part of a sponsored trip with Destino Retreats and The Trip Tribe. (Here’s why!) We arrived on Wednesday afternoon, and I have been having THE BEST time ever since. CrossFit + vacation = AWESOMENESS! Just before our flight to Cabo, I surprised […]



    Hello and greetings from California! I’m staying in Manhattan Beach while I am attending the CrossFit Games this weekend. It’s a nice area! I arrived in Los Angeles at 9:00 AM (PST) yesterday morning, which, of course, was a total time warp: waking up super early, traveling across the country, and then arriving with a […]
