Oh the Places You’ll Go

fit crasher travels to the pacific NW

January is going to be a crazy fit crashing month. Heck, it already has been. I may as well hunker down and hang on for the ride!

Over the next three weeks, I’ll be traveling to four different states and two different coasts to visit friends and family in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, and Woodstock, Vermont. The fit crash potential is off the charts. I’m honestly having a hard time narrowing down all of the options to just one or two each day. Maybe I could fit in three? I mean, think of all the beautiful boutique studios, crazy workout methods, scenic trail runs, and ski slopes out there just waiting to be crashed. It’s fantastically overwhelming!

Luckily, I have fit minded friends in each city who are generously holding my hand through the selection process. My dear running buddy and Boston Marathon training partner Jane is in Seattle. Fellow DCer Ellen of District Sweats is spending some time in Portland. Georgetown triathlon teammate Sarah and running roommate Dorothy are in San Francisco. And college buddy SB is already scoping out the best slopes in Vermont for when I get there. These ladies are enablers. And I love them.

Be sure to keep up with all of my sweaty adventures in real-time on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. I’ll post longer recaps on the blog when I can, hopefully from the comfort of a Seattle Starbucks or Sonoma winery. Because let’s be honest, blogging is always better with a fun libation in hand.


In other fun news…Roam Fitness did and interview with me and I spilled the beans about what strange selections are on my workout playlist. I’ve been attending their classes on and off since opening day and was so pumped when they asked to feature me as “blogger of the month.” As part of the deal, I am so very pleased to announce that DC Fit Crasher readers get 10% off class and personal training packages through February 2nd. How nifty is that?! In case you want a peek at what it’s like to workout with them, click here for a crash report from an Out Run with Roam Fitness.

And now – I’m off to tackle the challenge of packing for this fantastic adventure! No, seriously everyone, how many pairs of running socks and workout capris do you really think I need? Because right now I’m going with “all” as my default choice. The airline folks are going to love me : )
