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…

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…

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…

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…

My First Disc Golf Tournament

This past weekend I competed in my first disc golf tournament, hence the title of the post. I picked up the sport a few years back while living in Texas and continued playing in Georgia and then to New Orleans, where there are a few area courses. Here are a few takeaways that I had…

Walls of Rain, Waterspouts and More

Something outside recently caught my eye at work. Back in February it was all of the Mardi Gras floats rolling by. They multiplied! Carnival season is taking over. pic.twitter.com/j8THhAVAwU — Tyler Mayforth (@tylermayforth) January 29, 2016 This time, though, it wasn’t something on the street. Rather, on the water. From our vantage point on the…

It Was The Fest(ival) Of Times In New Orleans

Of the many things New Orleans does right, festivals and Mardi Gras are on top of the list. Seeing as I already experienced my first Carnival Season, it was time for me to knock off another huge item on my Big Easy Bucket List — Jazz Fest. For those uninitiated, Jazz Fest — formally known as…

Better With Practice: My Bowling Tale

Bowling has never been my specialty. Actually, I’m pretty horrendous at it. A “good” score for me — or a “successful” game — is when I manage to break 110, which doesn’t happen that often. Truthfully, anything above 100 is a cause for celebration. If my score touches 150, it means the spirit of Pete…

Putting Up Numbers: USTFCCCA Website Style

Ever since I got out of newspapers and began working for the USTFCCCA in August of 2015, I had to figure out a new way to quantify my impact as an employee. In newspapers, particularly during my time as a page designer at the Athens Banner-Herald, I relied on certain benchmarks like how the elements…
