Cross Training Spotlight: BodyFlow™

It’s been awhile since my first spotlight, so it seemed about time for another. So, let’s talk about BodyFlow™. Fun fact: It’s only called BodyFlow in the United States.

So, Flow/Balance –… Continue reading Cross Training Spotlight: BodyFlow™

Les Mills Super Quarterly – El Segundo, CA

Where do I even begin? I’ve been silently crafting this blog post for days now and still don’t know if I have the right words to convey how fantastic the Super Q was on Saturday.

Disneyland Half Marathon 2012

A quick bullet point post so that I don’t forget the little things about the race and the weekend… I should have done this after last year’s first half marathon (but since it was the FIRST, it’s definitely more clear in my mind). Highlights: Finishing without as much training! Finishing in spite of a sprain… Continue reading Disneyland Half Marathon 2012
