    Fitness Instructors: Up Your Game

    Wednesday, February 17, 2016

    Fitness instructors, the time has come for you to get it together. Gone are the days when this was a nice little side earner for you. So too, are they times you thought this was an easy qualification to get in lieu of ‘getting a proper job’. See, the fitness landscape has changed and I […]

Race Motivation

So in case you haven’t guessed from my seemingly endless Twitter and Instagram updates and numerous blog posts on the matter, I’m riding the Etape du Tour this weekend. EEK! It’s significant in that I’m not a cyclist. I’m a runner. Team Sky built me a ridiculously awesome bike and super splendid cycling apparel brand, […]

Getaway: Nira Alpina

Holiday season is upon us. The more I get into my fitness, the more interested I become in getaway locations that allow me to be active while I’m there. So, when the opportunity came up for me to visit the Nira Alpina hotel in Surlej, just outside St. Moritz in Switzerland, I jumped at the […]

Heels of the Day

I kind of can’t get enough of Nicholas Kirkwood shoes right now. He’s really pushing the envelope when it comes to footwear design and I look forward to the day I can look down and have a pair of his numbers on my feet. These bad boys stood out to me. The clash of patterns, […]

London – Brighton Ride

Since I started getting out on the bike in March in preparation for the Etape, everyone has told me I should ride London to Brighton, not necessarily the official event, but just as a training ride.

No Rest for the Badass

It’s currently five weeks until the Etape du Tour. Training has been intense. Throwing yourself into a sport you have no experience in becomes about much more than just the physical training itself. On top of that, I did the Insanity workout. Since January, I’ve felt like I only stop moving when I sleep. I […]
