Pittsburgh: Making The Move

It seemed like the day would never come. Once I signed the lease for my new place in Pittsburgh I immediately started packing. If you ever have to make a long move, Starbucks boxes are the absolute best! I never took a final box count, but I was truly amazed how much “crap” I had….

Pittsburgh: My New Home

Yup, you read the title of this post correctly. As I mentioned in my previous post, the past month has been a whirlwind of change. On May 31st my employment as the VP of Human Resources for Vision Property Management ended. By far the hardest part of leaving VPM was leaving behind an amazing team…

UPDATE: Promises: Half Marathon Training | My 180

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Much has taken place during the past month, most of which I’ll share in a post later this week. I wanted to post a quick update regarding my training for a Half Marathon. In mid-May I became sick with a pretty nasty case of pneumonia. After numerous antibiotics…

Promises: Half Marathon Training | My 180

Promises. We’ve all made them. Many of us have broken them. What happens when you make a promise to yourself then make the mistake of sharing it with Heather Price? She holds you to it.  At the start of 2013 I promised myself I would run a half marathon before my 30th birthday. Several weeks ago I…

Yellow Pants

One of the perks of getting in shape: New clothes! I’ll be speaking to 100 South Carolina area Human Resource professionals in May on the importance of workplace culture development and celebrating the individuality and diversity of each individual. Thinking it will be the perfect occasion to break out my new (bright) yellow pants. What…

Let’s Be Honest | My 180

Wow, it’s been forever since I have written a #My180 post. I want to start out with some brutal honesty. The past three months have been incredibly challenging. From work to family, relationships with friends to fitness, life has been an uphill battle. Thankfully the battle has been worth fighting, and though it is certainly…

A Breakfast Makeover | My 180

Breakfast is tough. Real tough. Especially for a guy who doesn’t eat cereal and who can’t do milk either. (I know, sucks to suck huh?!) While I’d love bacon and eggs every morning, the truth is, I love to sleep up until the last minute possible. I decided to give my breakfast a makeover and…

Back To Training | My 180

Alright, I’ll admit it: I’ve been a slack ass the past few months. You will however be glad to know that I’m officially back in the swing of things. And by “back,” I really mean waking up at the crack of dawn to have my ass kicked by my Trainer. This morning was full of…
