Where It’s At: I Got Two Avocados and a Salmon Steak

I’m lolling on the beach in Playa del Carmen (where “lolling” equals starting each day with a run or CrossFit workout, then swimming, reading, and having adventures with Dave). But I couldn’t leave you stranded, so… * * * * * * * * * * * [Sing the title of this post to the tune of Beck’s “Where It’s At” for the full effect.] Ode Magazine, a print and... read more

This Just In: Playa del Carmen

I swore off the computer for our vacation, but it’s been pouring rain on and off all day, and I couldn’t resist when Dave tapped into the wireless. Despite the uncooperative weather, it’s been a pretty kickass day so far… Our hotel continental breakfast was huge, beautiful, delicious, and Zone-friendly: eggs, bacon, fruit, yucca homefries, and even half a piece of toast. Yum. I... read more

Holiday Road

I invite you to enjoy the Lindsay Buckingham classic “Holiday Road,” while reading today’s installment. Yesterday was our company’s summer party. I’m on the Action Team (!), so I was sort of co-host of the whole shebang. We had an open bar and piles of yummy, fried things: shrimp with cheese and bacon wrapped in a wonton wrapper, flautas, mango quesadillas, nachos… I... read more

The Spartan 300 workout is a beast! Before I get into the details and controversy (!) of my workout, take a lookie at the photographic evidence of bad-ass-dom at CrossFit Central last Saturday. Maggie was looking adorable, as usual. She has a new blog you might want to check out — and you should read her story of empowerment over at the CC web site.Erin and Maggie were in the first heat.

Takin’ a Dip

Soon I’ll be takin’ a dip in the beautiful blue waters of Playa del Carmen and takin’ a sip of something cool and frosty. Just 6 more days ’til my first beach vacation since Dave and I went to Cabo San Lucas in 1993. That’s right! It’s been 16 years since the big man and I kicked back in the sand. Books, sunscreen, bathing suits, my stack of CrossFit WOD index cards... read more
