Today my husband, Tommy, is taking the reins and is guest-posting today after a 3+ year hiatus to discuss someone who influenced and motivated him as an athlete and individual.
It is with great sadness to report the sudden passing of Chris Moore of Barbell Buddha, Barbell Shrugged and Ironheart Studios. [Read more…]
As you can probably glean from the title of this post, my latest and greatest guest blogger is Ms. V herself (our adorable pit bull). We both thought it would be fun to share some of her favorite things she likes to do in the area (as well as some other suggestions) in case any of her peers (and their owners) are looking for things to do.

Many thanks to Tammy who did this guest blog post. I was supposed to have dined with Tammy, Miki, and our respective significant others (Tommy too) at Eatonville on Friday night for our monthly 14th Street Eating Tour, but couldn’t because of my grandmother. While I had previously dined at Eatonville before, no one else had.
Another month comes which means another Jasian dinner on 14th Street. (We also affectionately call this tour the “Jasian dinner” – part of two Asians and one Jew. [Read more…]
I would say I became a blog reader (and then eventually a blogger myself a little while later) about a year ago. I’m not sure what really prompted this new hobby, but I have become an avid follower of many blogs and so enjoy reading each and every one of their posts when I have time.
Here are just a few I highly recommend you read: [Read more…]
Another guest blog post! Please read on for some invaluable (international) travel information! Thanks M. 🙂 [Read more…]
Tommy is back with another blog post, essentially a follow-up from his first post!
Ladies and gentleman the wait is finally over!
DCBFit opened doors for its first Muay Thai Kickboxing class on Tuesday night. Having traveled as far as Northern Thailand to train in Muay Thai, I’ve been dreaming of the day when a place to train would be opening right here in our very building! [Read more…]
Another guest blogger, Anna! Anna currently lives in Dakar, Senegal, working for a San Francisco based nonprofit, Kiva. Kiva is a leader in peer-to-peer lending via the internet, to and from people in all parts of the world.
Today marked one of those mornings where my emotions ran wild; I’m guessing, I’m hoping, oh please — tell me we all know the sort? Or maybe I’m just a total March hare.
In the time span of 45 minutes, I went from… feeling unflappable, invincible, and filled with gumption to tackle any and all inevitable nonsense the day would throw at me, to… unfathomably indignant, and… shortly thereafter, tears which were unreasonably pathetic but impossible to hold back.

Another guest blogger, Teresa, currently lives in Cairo. I thought it would be interesting to get a first hand perspective of what was happening in the city and throughout the country right now, as this country holds a special place in my heart. I truly hope things get better on this side of the world. [Read more…]
Bee in DC’s second guest blogger post, from the lovely and fabulous Meg. My dear travel buddy.
The Bee asked me to write this guest post last week and I hesitantly committed – I’m not a blogger, but I couldn’t refuse one of my besties… I agonized over what I could possibly say about Luang Prabang. I had total writer’s block, but a classmate of mine helped inspire me. I grabbed beers with classmates on Saturday when, somewhat fortuitously, the topic turned to travel. Someone asked me what my favorite place I’ve ever traveled to was. My answer was automatic. Laos. I didn’t even have to think about it – there was no hesitation or second guessing. After that, I knew I could write this post. [Read more…]
