Thanks, everyone! We're buying a place in Brighton Heights and are so excited to move (though we have to wait until July)!

Welcome to the Pittsburgh Team! I like the Highland Park area and that would be good to get to Pitt Law! It is really nice to run in Shenley Park which is right near the law school, which was one of my favorite runs in college! (Not running at night, just daylight) Glad you are coming to Pittsburgh. I loved visiting Washington State and I hope you enjoy Pittsburgh!

Today I will track my food and exercise. This I will do for myself.

Welcome! I have only lived in Pittsburgh so I may not be very objective, but it's a great city!

Hope your house shopping goes well...sounds very busy.

Whether you think you can or you can't, you are probably right!


Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

One of the houses we're going to look at is on the edge of Highland Park, which seems promising!

I was there about a month ago and ate at so many places... I loved O Dogs and Five Guys... (didn't wander away from Pitt, really). I can't wait to sample more foods in moderation, of course. ;)

We do have some nice parks in the area and some of the neighborhoods are surprisingly green.

The restaurants are awesome! We do have our mix of fattening and healthy choices.

Great! Thanks! I'll admit that something I'm worried about is missing the general greenery of my area, but I look forward to outdoor adventures in a new place. :)

Hooray! Welcome to the team. Since you like the outdoors you are in a great spot! There are lots of great resources for outdoor activity, mainly Venture Outdoors www.ventureoutdoors.org which has events scheduled all year round! I am a member and it is great fun!

Looking forward to chatting with you on the boards!

Thanks! I'm still not very clear on the areas, but I'm looking somewhat close to Pitt because my boyfriend is starting at the law school this fall. We're looking at about 25 places in two days, so it'll be a bit of a whirlwind trip!

I already know that I'm going to have a tough time watching what I eat with all of the restaurants there!

Welcome to Pittsburgh. I think is the best city in the US to live in (and I have lived in a few). We would be happy to answer any questions you have about Pittsburgh and all the various parts of the city that give it some of its unique flavor. Do you know what part of town you will be looking at?

Hi everyone!

So I'm not technically a Pittsburgh resident yet, but I'm excited to be so I figure "why not join now?"

I'm currently in Washington State, but I am moving to Pittsburgh in about two months! I am very excited and I hope to learn from this group not only about fitness in Pittsburgh but also about the city itself!
I'll be in the city over the next week to look at houses - and I know that coming back to my current home will be more than annoying. ;)

Fitness-wise, I'm on the ChaLEAN Extreme program for building muscle since I don't have reliable access to a gym and can't afford a trainer right now. It's something I can easily transfer to my new situation and it's fun. I also do a variety of cardio, mostly outside due to the nice weather I have here.

Anyway, I look forward to chatting with everyone!

-Nikki
