Springtime on the Charles

I’m aware that quite a few posts have been bike-centric recently, and that’s because my brain is bike-centric at the moment.

We just had a few beautiful days in Boston, and I just need you to see how beautiful my bike path was looking. And how much everyone was enjoying the sunshine. And celebrating fitness & life & stuff. Twas glorious.

And at the end of this series of pictures, you shall see why another bike-centric post will be happening in the near future…!

Biking, Sunshine, and Elation

The Vibram Review post is taking longer than I anticipated to pull together, so to pass your time & mine, I give you my bike: Isn’t it pretty? It is. I love it.

I also really really love sunny daysWhen these two things collide, especially in the early spring (and mid and late spring and early, mid, and late summer, and early and mid autumn), well. Unparalleled joy. It amazes me how thing simple combination of bike+sun just makes me So Unbelievably Happy. So I’m going to share that happiness with you all.

Words Aren’t Going Together In My Brain Right Now

So allow me to share a life update with some pictures.

Check it: For now, I’m just wearing them around the apartment to make sure all is well (I can’t return them once I run in them outside), but obviously I’ll share my thoughts on them once I get the nerves to fully embrace my purchase. I’m kind of psyched.

Get Away from my Exercise Plan, MBTA!

The MBTA (Boston’s public transportation system) is consistently great for a lot of things, including, but not limited to, the following:

– people watching
– free copies of “The Metro,” one of the best news publications in all the land
– creating time to read so that My Intellect Does Not Die (but I have a Kindle now, thanks to Lil Brother #1, so I usually play Scrabble instead of read. Close enough).

…right now, that’s about all I can think of. But we’re talking consistent things that it offers.

I take the commuter rail to work, which, about 85% of the time, is awesome. This winter, the commuter rail has been less than even remotely reliable. Whatever — the frustration caused by delays due to massive amounts of snow is (hopefully) behind us Boston commuters. What is quite bizarre, and I think you’ll agree, is that my train yesterday, when it was about 48 degrees and sunny with a pleasant, mild breeze, was canceled and that the following train was running 20 minutes late. Which meant that, rather than happily boarding  a train at 4:43 (don’t judge — I have non-traditional work hours, so 4:43 is actually me staying late at work on a Monday), the earliest me and my gym bag (with our “mild elliptical” intentions) would possibly be boarding a train was 5:55.

Stupid MBTA messin’ with my life. Again.

A Winter Run in Boston

I hope you’ve noticed that 99.9% of my posts are meant to be somewhat informative and helpful as you all look towards living life healthfully and all of that nice stuff. That is generally how I intend to use this space.

This post? I just took pictures during a snowy run around my city, and decided that I would come up with a post to write around them. I do hope you don’t mind this moderately self-indulgent act, as I seek to share the running route (and act of winter running) that I love so much with all of you.

Welcome to Life Lived Healthfully!

So after happily fielding questions about food that I eat, chatting  about running for normal people, and starting to realize that a lot of people who I interact with on a daily basis are genuinely curious about the easy, healthy habits that I integrate into my life, I decided to start a blog to discuss them all. I find that most people are interested in healthfulness and it’s not something that people generally chat about, so BAM, blog created!

Allow me to introduce myself.
