So as most of you know, I recently took a new job as a content writer for the online media publication, BostInno. I will be writing all about fitness and trending health related topics each and every day! This week was my first week at the office, so I no doubt learned tons about the company and what I’ll be doing there. I feel so blessed to be able to do this. As. My. Job.
Also? I get to attend fitness events in Boston! Can I get a whoop, whoop!
Speaking of events, this past week I got notified of a free race happening this weekend in Boston. I know what you’re thinking, it’s -15 outside, why would you ever run outside on purpose? Well, this wasn’t your average race. It was called ClimbAmerica!, a fundraiser hosted by ClimbCorps, an organization raising awareness for heart related illnesses.
Yup. I climbed stairs this morning. 38 flights to be exact.
If you’re thinking, OMG my legs would fall off? Think again. Try, my lungs felt like they were on fire. I’m taking burning flames and stabbing swords all up in my chest. Appealing right? Probably happy you had brunch plans.
It was held at the Exchange Place in the Financial District of Boston. Fun fact I learned, this building is the 12th tallest building in Boston. Regardless of the cool trivia and smokers cough I’m now sporting, I had a great time. Lots of people showed up for the event, which is awesome seeing that heart related illnesses are America’s #1 killer. Yikes.
Something small you can do everyday is take the stairs. If you’re like me and (most recently) sit at a desk ALL. DAMN. DAY. You need to get some exercise in. We are a sedentary country that needs to change one small step at a time, or in this case, stair.
Also, it’s DAY 20 of my Advocare 24 day challenge! I’m feeling great, with the exception of two cocktails on Friday night, WOOPS, and one too many rice cakes and AB last night, double WOOPS.
They’re just so freakin’ good. I couldn’t stop.
But I’m back at it for 3 more days of challenge worthy clean eating. Keep on the lookout for my results!! PS- my friend Becky just finished her 24 DC, did you SEE her results?? Hopefully mine are at least 1/4th as good as hers!
So talk to me, how did you get sweaty this weekend??
