I’ve been struggling for over a week to get over a stupid cold – and I am finally seeing it break after (spoiler) running a marathon yesterday. Hooray! Running always seems to cure my maladies 🙂 While I’ve been sick, I’ve been trying extra hard to get more sleep… but it’s not always easy. I schedule myself way too thin!

Working Out in the Digital World

Today, instead of posting about Absolut fitness, I want to talk about App-solute fitness. (Sorry, I thought that pun was way too funny not to use – I know I’m a huge dork). Lately, it’s come to my attention that there are a lot of great and really cool ways to use my phone – but when I say a lot, I do mean a lot of cool apps. Just when I think I have everything I could ever need, they come out something new that totally changes my daily life… and I start to wonder what’s going to be …
