Dear Running, I Missed You

Don’t call it a comeback. The runner in me never left. He just had to wake up. It had been 10 long years since I last ran a half marathon, even longer for a five-mile jaunt. But there I was toeing the starting line for the Jazz Half Marathon last month and the 110th annual…

Baring My Soul For November Project – New Orleans

Earlier this week, the co-leaders from November Project-New Orleans presented me with the Positivity Award, which is given out to a member who isn’t necessarily the fastest or loudest, but is a steady influence at workouts and does his or her best to promote and grow the November Project movement. November Project allows members to…

Seeing U2 In Concert In New Orleans

Emotional. Surreal. I can only use those two words to describe what it was like to see U2 in concert at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome last night in New Orleans. I bought my ticket on a whim earlier in the day after I saw how cheap they were on StubHub ($21 plus fees). I also didn’t…

PlayNOLA Kickball Champions

Last week I did something I had never done before. Win a championship in a team sport. “Faces Loaded,” the kickball team I was part of for the 2017 PlayNOLA spring season, came from behind to beat “Booze on First” 8-7 in the championship. Pretty sure this was the eighth (?) kickball season I took…

Scratching An Itch At The Crescent City Classic

When the opportunity presented itself, I jumped at it. My girlfriend offered me a chance to run the Crescent City Classic since she had two charity bibs – one from her father’s doing and one from her own – and I wasn’t going to pass up the chance to run a competitive 10K for the first time in…

The Weeknd And The Greatest Concert Of My Life

For an hour and a half, nothing else mattered. I didn’t want to be anywhere else. I was lost in the music and I couldn’t have been happier. Ever since I listened to The Weeknd the first time back in 2012, I wanted to see him perform live. There was just something about his voice…

Early Mornings And The November Project

When I usually go to the Superdome, it’s on a Sunday afternoon or a rare Monday night. After all, that’s when I’d join the Who Dat Nation to check out the Saints. A recent Wednesday morning at 6 a.m. definitely wasn’t usual, though. I woke up bright and early to check out November Project. If…

Flipping That 504 Fitness Tire Until My Body Can’t Take It

Before last Saturday I had never thrown up from a workout. If you’ve read this blog at all since it’s creation, you know I love to stay active, go to the gym and that I was a former Division I cross country and track & field athlete. In other words, there have been no shortage…

A Wonderful Visit To Angola Prison (Rodeo)

The Louisiana State Penitentiary is a great place to be. Let me clarify that: It’s a fantastic spot on a sunny Sunday in October. I don’t think I’d want to stay there. The Angola Prison isn’t the Ritz Carlton. Every year the largest maximum-security prison in the United States puts on a rodeo that features inmates…

Back At It Again: Tire Flips At 504 Fitness

To say the weather wasn’t ideal for tire flipping last Saturday would be an understatement of the century. Then again, it’s September in New Orleans. What else should I expect? The temperature sat in the low 90s, but with the Heat Index, it felt like 102. As soon as I got into the courtyard outside 504…
