I haven’t posted a Friday Fitness recap in several weeks because my workouts have been the same (running four times a week) and how many pictures of the treadmill screen or my feet do you need, right?

That wasn’t a mispelling in my title, it was a pun. January’s BuffBoxx had several great items for my next triathlon. Get it? TRI-althon. I amuse myself.

Friday Fitness- Let the Marathon Training Begin


My brother Bruce and I did something a little crazy for New Years- we signed up for the Rock n’ Roll Seattle marathon in June.

Friday Fitness- Fall Walking


It’s funny, when I was recovering from my C-section and only allowed to go for walks, I was so bored and so anxious to get running. Five months later, I’m back at work as well as taking care of the baby, and I find walks with him to be a relaxing time for the two of us to bond and…
