Exercise Update: I bought a bike!

By |

The Northeast has been flirting with the idea of having a Spring for a while, and this past weekend was another piece of tempting bait to believe this winter may soon be coming to an end. While the sun wasn’t shining, the air smelled like spring as buckets of rain fell on Boston. It’s coming; […]

Looking Ahead to the B.A.A. Distance Medley

By |

This post comes from 2FNS Member, Gracie! 

About 2 months ago, Adrienne and I suffered some kind of temporary madness and signed up for this year’s B.A.A. Distance Medley. This annual race sponsored by the Boston Athletic Association includes a 5k in April, 10k in June, and finally the Half Marathon in October. I was travelling […]

Tech Tuesday: Google Food Comparison

By |

An article on NPR today pointed out a nice feature in Google search that I had previously been unaware of. It directly compares two food items given by a fairly simple search: “compare Banana vs Orange”

I am surprised by the variety of food items they have, including hamburgers vs cheesecake, or fries vs asparagus. The […]

Monday Check In: Embracing Salad

By |

One time someone asked me if I would ever eat a leftover salad. Like, would I ever eat half of a salad and save the rest for a midnight snack. I quickly responded, absolutely not, because I would never have a salad to begin with, let alone leftovers. Every salad you eat is a missed […]

Getting Rid of Bingo Arms One Stretch at a Time.

By |

Recently I started going to a physical therapist to alleviate some nagging discomfort, and, in doing so, I’ve learned a couple of good stretches that I wanted to share. They are probably really good for anyone like me who spends 90 percent of their life behind a computer hunched over in a dark room.

The first […]

Google Trends: Vegetables

By |

As I sat in my office this morning munching on some sugar snap peas, carrots, and celery . . . I got to thinking. I wonder what vegetables are trending right now. I assume avocado has got to be popular, due to narrowly avoided Guacopocalypse, but what about others?

In my pursuit of the top trending […]

Best Half Marathon Ever?

By |

It has come to my attention that there is a half marathon, greater than all previous half marathons before it. This one lets you finish at the 50 yard line of the Buffalo Bills Stadium.

The Fifty Yard Finish Half Marathon at the end of June has easily the coolest of all cool race perks. See yourself on […]
