A Trip Down Middle Earth

The sounds of my alarm clock rang out. It was 6:30am and time to wake up. I rolled over in my sleeping bag and realized it was a little colder than I expected it to be. I really was enjoying the warmth of my sleeping bag, however, I had to get moving. It was another...

Day 8 – The bar is just the start line not the finish line

Today was great! I knew that I should be able to hit my goal easily as we had a 45 minute group run in the morning (7K steps, check!), a group bus-tour of properties in the afternoon, and then speaking the rest of the day. Yesterday, I managed to hit 18K by the end of...

Day 7 – The Power of Momentum

I’ve never paid attention to how many steps I take while on stage. And perhaps not surprisingly, as I wrap up my day on Friday around 5:30 PM, I’m already at 18K steps. Crushed it. I make a mental goal to keep moving at our networking event and not get stuck talking...

700 miles in 60 days

  “I’d rather own a venomous snake than a cat” says the skater boy to his buddies as they all laugh at their friend’s expense, who just wants to get home to his girlfriend and cat. I’m sitting on the subway in NYC on a rainy Saturday night, stifling my laugh as I...
