August 26, 2012 at 7:28 am

My friend Amy B posted this on Facebook this morning and I stole it. I especially like and agree with (and think about) number 7, but they are all very wise.

August 24, 2012 at 7:37 am

So I have been working on this CRAZY project at work for the last few weeks and have been thinking a lot about the impact of work place stress – the opposite of Tuesday’s post about work place health.

When I first saw this link, I thought it seemed kind of silly, but now I think it is pretty ingenious and wish that I had thought of it! A search engine to find and book a personal trainer for two-way video training? Could be perfect for traveling, people with kids who can’t get to a gym or people who want training/advice but can’t afford…

August 16, 2012 at 5:49 am

I wrote a few posts about my friend George Gallego and his Ironman NYC fundraiser for the organization he started called Wheels of Progress. This is the first one about keeping things in perspective. A bunch of you donated to support his efforts – thank you! George suffered a spinal cord injury over 20 years ago and is paralyzed. He chose to dedicate himself to…
