Stretching and Streaking My Way Through April!

The last two days I have been on a really successful workout streak! I’ve started my shifts at 3pm, which allows me to wake up on my own time and then hit the mat. Well, make coffee and then hit the mat. I’ve also had the time to squeeze some short runs in, and it’s […]

Yoga Revolution Day Five: Practice Rhythm

Today was day number six at my new job, and my first day back after one day off. I needed that day off to relax and decompress after getting so much new information thrown my way! Today I felt much calmer and well-informed, and it made the job so much easier. I made flash cards […]

Yoga Revolution Day Four, Yoga for New Beginnings, and Running – This is How I Spend My Days Off

Yoga Revolution Day Four, Prana Practice! Super stoked I’ve been able to keep up with a practice everyday so far, even if it’s just been four days!

Yoga Revolution Day Two

Day two of Yoga Revolution and day three of job training! I’ve been making sure to wake up early enough to fit in a practice the last two days – it helps me feel ready for the day, and I don’t trust myself to be committed to a post-work practice! Running is different for some […]

Per my post yesterday, things are working out in my favor and I start training at a new job tomorrow! My entire adult career, I’ve been a baker/pastry chef and over half of it has been focusing on vegan and gluten-free goodies. Recently, I decided to step away from the kitchen and try my hand […]

Run/Walking My Way to Positive Thinking (When I Want to Pull the Covers over my Head and Give In to the Anxiety)

Mike and I just got back from the┬áRock’n Roll San Francisco half marathon, which went really well! It took place three weeks after LA Marathon, so that didn’t give us tons of time to recover. Last year I struggled getting back to running after LAM, I took some time off and the first five miles […]

Yoga For Cyclists Turns Out to Be Yoga for Runners Too!

I’m always looking for new yoga videos to supplement my running – postures that get into my back, hips, hamstrings and calves. I especially love having them in my repertoire for races, always the night before a race or long training run, never the morning of (It’s hard enough for me to get out the […]

New Year, Clean Slate, New Beginnings

Welcome to 2018! Whether you make resolutions, intentions, or simply nurse a hangover the first 24 hours, here we are! I don’t set resolutions anymore, and I like the idea of intentions, but the jargon rubs me the wrong way. Goals! That’s what I set! This year I would like to run 1000 miles, and […]
