Girl Gone Wild

Posted by ActiveArch Jan 29, 2009

 

What a difference a year makes. ActiveXer Alison Inglese is now an endurace athlete, among other things. I want to share a note from Alison, for all to enjoy, and to motivate yourself or others with. Pretty cool, and exactly why we do it.

 

 

I realized the other day that I started doing ActiveX over a year ago and I realized how much it has affected me and my life. I never used to do anything and I was always that person that paid for a gym membership and never went. Over the last six months, I have completed my first 5K, 10K and Half Marathon! I’m addicted and motivated to set goals for myself and constantly push myself to go farther and do more. It’s great to have people around you that are doing the same thing and you can help feed that in each other. It’s also helped me build some great relationships with my co-workers. It’s been such a great and positive thing in my life and I just wanted to say thanks! I’m hoping to start coming back to ActiveX next week. I’ve been nursing some pretty crazy blisters this week. Time for a new pair of running shoes!

Ice Crystal

Posted by ActiveArch Jan 7, 2009

 

And you think it is cold here in the morning? ActiveXer Crystal Barnes recently returned for a extended trip to Antartica! She braved the absolutely frigid cold, one of the nastiest ocean swells there is, and lots of penguins! You can see her amazing photos here:

And yet another great trip for the ActiveX hoodie! What's next? Crystal, awesome adventure.

Air Burt, Mountain Man

Posted by ActiveArch Jan 6, 2009

 

ActiveXer Burt Repine just got back from summiting 23,000 ft. Aconcagua in Argentina! An absolutely amazing adventure, one that takes months of preparation, is extremely gear intensive, not to mention costly, both financially and potentially physically. Huge congratulations to Burt pushing himself to do something extraordinary! By the way...Burt comes from pretty good stock. His mom has won her age group in Kona multiple times, and has competed in 14 Ironman-distace races, and is still getting after it, at 60. Awesome.

 

 

Burt will be posting a "race report" soon with additional photos. Burt, awesome man, awesome.

 

 

Unfortunately, Burt washed the stink out of the ActiveX hoody after the trip, so whomever has it next gets a fresh start.

Congratulations to ActiveXer Jesse and his recent engagement to Emmy. After a brief scavenger hunt that led to Jessie's pants pocket, the ring was found, and believe it or not, she said "yes?".

 

Congrats, Jesse!
