Biking- do you know what you’re missing?

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

If I was to take a survey concerning my current mode of transportation, I’d proudly select “cycling” as my primary mode of transport, with “my own 2 feet” coming in a close second.

In truth, I haven’t driven my car in weeks.  My husband would argue that this is because I (he?) lost the keys, but actually it’s because I like biking.  By biking to work (15 miles each way) I can fit in additional IM workout, I’m civil to my coworkers throughout the day, and I eat whatever I want (which I would do anyway but I feel a little bit better knowing I’ll burn off those animal crackers I just ate by the time I get home).

Missing: Pager

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

This weekend while riding, a terrible event happened.  I lost my pager.  Yes, that’s right, I said pager.  You probably thought those things no longer existed thanks to the advent of the cell phone.  You’re not alone.   First of all, I should back up.  I do not wear a uber-cool pager 24/7.  I only wear it evenings and weekends while I’m on-call at the local hospital.   I know what you’re thinking- hasn’t medicine advanced far enough to eliminate the need for pagers?  Won’t cell phones suffice? –  I agree completely and can’t believe I have to wear the thing.

Da Bears!

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Last evening I found myself at an NFL game, decked-out in my team’s colors, bravely cheering for the visiting team (as they suffered an embarrasing defeat) and surrounded by die-hard hometown fans.  To distract myself from the gentle harassment of these fans, I found my mind wandering to food (a common diversion for a dietitian).  Already looking for an excuse to retreat from the sea of thunderous cheers, I decided that one can’t fully experience an NFL game without visiting the concession stand and left my seat to explore the food offerings of the stadium.  (more…)

On the Road Again

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

The RDs from Swim, Bike, Run, Eat just returned from Denver, CO where the American Dietetic Association’s Food and Nutrition Conference was taking place.  What a beautiful place- who wouldn’t want to live surrounded by plenty of fun things to see and do and run on mountain trails?  But there’s one drawback to the Mile-High city… the Mile-High status.
