Where I Run and Workout


If I’m running, working out or training indoors you can find

me at    On Your Mark Training

in the West Loop.

If I’m running outdoors, I like

a few different routes based

on how long I feel like going

that day. Here are three of my favorites. Wrigleyville to the Lake; Lakeshore 6 Miler;     Lakeshore/Lincoln Park 10 Miler

On My Playlist


Music is an inspirational part of my life and I hardly ever workout without my iPod. I have to admit, I like a lot of different music, right now I have anything from AC/DC and the Foo Fighters to Biggie Smalls and a lot of Country on my playlist.


 

My Hobbies


One of my first passions in life

is cooking, I love the way it brings

family and friends together.

For fun, I love going skiing, whether

it be on snow or water, it’s an

amazingly free feeling.

Competitively, I love competing

in triathlons, there’s still a

competitive spirit inside me from

years of playing high school and

college sports.

My Favorite Restaurants


I’ve had the luxury of living in two of the greatest food cities in the world, San Francisco and now

Chicago. Here are few of

my favorites.

The French Laundry; Avec; Delfina; Osha Thai Noodle House


My Indulgences


Even those of us in the health and fitness industry have our moments when we need to indulge in something that makes life worth living! My favorite place   for a burger is Kumas Korner, They have about 30 different kinds of burgers and I haven’t met one I didn’t like. If you call yourself a Chicagoan you have to have a favorite Pizza place, mine is Pete’s Pizza, gotta go with the sausage! Lastly, I almost always have a little Edy’s Slow Churned Ice Cream in my freezer to satisfy my sweet tooth.
