Taking It To the…Escalators

Do the escalators count as a form of exercise? Do you normally just stand there and ride up/down, or do you climb up two steps at a time and then jog down? Find out what random Chicagoans have to say about escalators and exercise!

Taking It To the Streets: Blizzard Motivation

We are in the midst of a blizzard in Chicago! Last night I “Took It to the Streets” to find out why Chicagoans are motivated to go outside when it’s not only freezing out, but also snowing everywhere! Check out my awesome and random guests, whose motivation ranges from going to work, going to the gym, and getting some 1/2 off pizza!

Motivational Mondays: What Got You Moving This Wknd?!

So I did something crazy and strange this weekend…I went on a “Bar Run” with a serious running group and some friends. The run was 5 miles total, and after each mile you stop at a bar. It’s a planned and timed route, with over 50 people! At first I was very apprehensive about this: Is it safe to be drinking and running (NOT REALLY), and how taxing will this be on everyone’s body (30 degrees + most likely dehydrated of water and full of alcohol + exhausting muscles = bad combo). But, I decided to test it out even though (given the above apprehensions) I was a bit nervous.

Unfortunately I lost some footage, but here’s a brief recap of the run, which ended up being great! What got YOU moving this weekend, AND what is the craziest way you’ve worked out??
