Midsummer Reflections

Good afternoon! As I sit here during my lunch break on this ever so hot July day, I realize that the year is over half way over. Heck, it’ll be Christmas before we know it!!

Asanas and Attitude Adjustments

Good morning! Happy Wednesday!! Hope your week is going well. This is a deload week for me as I prepare for my first powerlifting meet this Saturday. This means no heavy lifting! Which makes me sad, but I have to trust the process. This means a focus on foam rolling and mobility work over the course of the week. It also means more hip openers in my yoga practice.

It’s the Most Wonder Filled Time of the Year

Ah December is here and what a year this has been. Heartbreak, loss, and self discovery. I can’t believe it has been a year since we said goodbye to my dad. I miss him sooooo much and there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of him. But I get by, because I know that he is with me every day. Every race I have run this year was dedicated to Continue reading It’s the Most Wonder Filled Time of the Year
