I don’t know why I haven’t written a post about my favorite (and obviously the best) fitness studios in Boston. I get emails from readers all the time asking where they should workout when they come visit. Boutique gyms make is easy for visitors to get in a workout without a gym membership. Up until […]

After teaching at 9am, taking Derek’s class at Barry’s at 10:15 and then teaching at noon, we drove up in the middle of the snow storm to Vacationland.

Back in August, I had a secret shoot in Boston where I got to wear the most comfortable high heels all around the city. Sounds like an oxymoron, right? I usually have a love/hate relationship with high heels because I want to wear them but I have the hardest time finding ones that are comfortable. […]

I can’t believe I do not have a Boston travel tips post on where to go, what to eat and what to see, etc. I can tell you that Boston has very few restaurants that are 100% dedicated to healthy grub. Sweetgreen is one of the very few in actual Boston (I’m excluding Cambridge, Newton, […]

Read part 1 of my Chicago Marathon recap here. As the gun went off, my heart rate soared with excitement. I was doing this. I was running this damn marathon even if I had to walk the last 6 miles. I knew I followed my plan religiously and had to trust “the training.”  I wasn’t […]
