We’re getting close to the weekend, y’all. If you’re in Chicago, the weather has been pretty crummy this week, but it’s looking up for the weekend. What else is going on?

Spartan Race

Think outside the box with Spartan Race.  See how you stack up against top athletes. Sign up for a Spartan Race with code CF176, and after the race, see where you rank.


Spartan Race is providing me with a free race entry in exchange for helping promote their race. SO COME RACE WITH ME! EEEEK. Sunday, June 11th outside Chicago.  You bet I’m doing the 3-5 mile Sprint distance. 



If you work in an office, how often do you move? I’ve been with my company just shy of four years, and while we’ve been in the same building the whole time, I just moved desks for the sixth time. I’m also on my fifth boss.  I’m still here though …

Sweat to Inspire 


Erica, me, Hillary   

Tuesday was Equal Pay Day and A Sweat Life celebrated with Sweat to Inspire, an event featuring a RBG-themed workout (and tank top, modeled by Erica in the photo above) followed by yoga, and fierce female speakers Sarah Spain, talking sexism in sports broadcasting, and Sarah Ames, who ran seven marathons on seven continents in seven days to raise money for Hamlin Fistula.  It was a great event! Kudos to the team at A Sweat Life.

What’s going on in your world? Tell me something random.
