Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

Twitter Fun and Trainer Karaoke

Wednesday night I participated in the #FitStudio twitter party.  This is a twitter party that takes place every Wednesday and is sponsored by Sears I think.  This week it was hosted by David Grotto and he asked participants to email a picture of their fridge.

Sadly I didn't win for the healthiest fridge but on a positive note I didn't get a call out for having a shamefully unhealthy fridge either! For a single girl, my fridge looks awfully full and yet I still stare at it and feel like I have nothing to eat! Some of my favorites that I always try to have on hand are bottled water and yes there is chocolate milk hiding on the top shelf.  My friend Kyla always has Lemonade at her house so I made some to have as another drink choice.  I have some leftovers that I doubt I'll eat...anyone else do that too?  In the crisper bin I've got some apples, kiwis, and grapes as well as a salad kit and mix veggie snack pack.  On the freezer side, my shelves are separated as breakfast on top, then dinner type stuff, and the bottom two sections are mostly all frozen veggies.  I don't drink coffee but have a stock pile of coffee packs for when my parents come to visit. 

Today I never got up the gumption to go out for a run.  It was a chillier day and windy and I just didn't want to break out my cold weather gear yet.  Instead I decided to go for a bike ride on my indoor trainer.  I love my Cycle Ops Jet Fluid Pro trainer! I watched some Burn Notice for the first 20 minutes and then decided to turn on the iPod.  Pretty soon it was Trainer Karaoke night at my house! I just couldn't help from singing along to the music. 

I did just over an hour on the trainer and could have kept going.  I had to take a quick break at one point to move my iPod dock closer to me since I was having trouble getting the remote to work from where I originally had it.  What a difference it made and then I was able to change songs much more easily.  I couldn't believe how many songs I had to skip over...either they were too slow or just not fun enough to sing along with.  It took about 38 songs before I hit one by Flogging Molly too.  I love Flogging Molly and Irish rock! Random side note:  There is a commercial out right now with a song by The Pogues and I love it every time it comes on!

After an hour on the bike, the perfect song came on to end my workout.  Don't judge me for having the Glee cast version but it was Journey's Don't Stop Believing! I've been having a down few weeks and singing along to this song reminded me that everything we go through makes us stronger and whatever you do...don't stop believing!


  1. I love that commercial too! I love the Pogues and Flogging Molly and any GLEE cover of Journey!!!!

  2. Sorry to hear about your down weeks, hang in there!!
