I’m gonna do something a lil different here.
I write for a publication called Mode, which is a pretty cool site where each article is a series of “cards” to illustrate the story, and every card has an image and link to an article. (Much easier to see it than listen to this explanation.) Point is – these are catchy, brief articles that are easily digestible and a little more fun to read.
I decided to go ahead and share my stories on the blog, since most of you probably haven’t even heard of Mode and won’t see my stories otherwise. This gig has also made me think outside the box in terms of what is interesting for people to read. They push us to write about things that tie into our lifestyle. So, apparently people don’t want to just read about “The Best Exercises for Your Legs”. They want to read “How to Get Serena Williams Legs” or “How to Be the Hottest Girl on the Beach”…stuff like that. Same story, but that’s the spin.
Oh, and some of what I write has nothing to do with fitness at all, so that’s pretty fun. It will also give you a little glimpse of my life outside of fitness.
So here are 3 of my latest stories.

Why Working in Silicon Valley is Ah-mazing
I wanted to write this one since my company started offering wine and beer every day at 4pm. They also have fun events and a very positive work environment. Basically, I love it and before I moved out to the Bay, I had never experienced such an awesome company. Apparently a lot of companies out here are awesome like this.
How to Land Your Dream Job Out of School
Ok. I don’t know if I even have my dream job, but I do have some thoughts on how to get it. Lately, I’ve found myself in a lot of situations where I’m a mentor to young adults and children. I hear a lot of things that remind me of myself at that age (wow, did my old ass really just say that?) and I put a lot of these nuggets together.
