This week, I am “tapering” for a 10-mile race with obstacles called The Urbanathlon.  I’ve been blogging for Men’s Health/Women’s Health as I train. I’m beginning to get nervous and hoping that my nutrition and training are on point for the week.  Here is a sample of my fitness training plan: Monday: 3-mile easy run [...]

On Monday, I began the final stage of my shoot preparation.  My “shoot” is the week of September 19th.  I can’t tell you much about it, but people always say, why can’t you just be as you are?
