Hit the Hills- Kasey Esser

Hit the Hills

I seriously don’t know how I used to run cross-country.   Sometimes I wonder how my body supported my massive head     One day during the summer before my freshman year of high school, one of the XC (that means cross-country, by the way) coaches called me and asked if I would like to joint the team.   What I was thinking during the conversation;   “Running really long distances?  That sounds awful.”   What I said;   “Sounds great!  See you at the first practice!”   4 years later, and there I was, still running.  I...

Leap Away Your Fear

108 floors. 855 feet.   It’s pretty scary to look down from a window at that height, in my opinion.   Well, on Saturday night, around 12:30am, I did a free-fall from that very height!   Like the theme of my website, I literally took the leap!   If you didn’t know, the Stratosphere hotel in Vegas (I was in Vegas for the weekend at the NSCA Personal Trainers’ Conference), has an interesting feature;   SkyJump   Essentially, you sign up to jump off the top floor of the hotel to a bull’s eye on the ground.   Sounds pretty normal, right?   Having...

Dare to Dream…and Adjust

For some reason, I get a kick out of organizing my home office. I don’t know about you, but it is tough for me to get things done when my environment isn’t organized.  Some call it being a neat freak, some call it OCD, I just like to think of it as a “productivity necessity”. My office at our place is technically in the ”breakfast nook” of our apartment, but I have made it look pretty legit. However, with my ever-evolving collection of books, I needed a 2nd bookshelf to...
