FitLabPGH is a podcast about movement and movement opportunities in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Once a week we also highlight a FitLabPGH mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity. The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability. Click FitLabPGH Features for more info if you want to be featured/know someone who should be featured.

Describe your fantasy movement-focused vacation…cost is not an object…where do you go and what do you do? I go to Hawaii to run the beaches and swim in the water
What is your go-to weekday breakfast? Your weekend breakfast? Usually something small…I’m not a big breakfast eater. A piece of toast and strawberry preserves or egg whites.
What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Anything from Clean Juice East Liberty or Fenix Fit Bars!!
What is the most unusual and/or challenging movement activity you’ve done? Would you do it again? I’ve done five (?) half marathons. It was especially challenging because I don’t consider myself to be a runner. And I don’t really enjoy running.

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Cryotherapy, stretch sessions or massage
