100 minute challenge

September 12, 2014

Alright. How is it September 12th today?!? I don’t even know what has happened to the last 30 days of my life. While September might be half over, I’m challenging all of my friends to join in a 30 day challenge to hold a plank for 100 minutes. I first saw Heather post something on […]

At Home

June 7, 2014

I closed and moved into my very first home almost two weeks ago and it still all feels a bit surreal. I keep saying that this all happened so quickly, which is the absolute truth. I’m settled in and am truly grateful for this space. It’s amazing how different it feels walking into a house […]

A week has passed since the Nike Women’s Half last weekend and it all still feels like a blur. This race was by far one of the best running experiences I’ve had. There is an incredible sense of camaraderie running 13 miles with nearly 15,000 other women. I went into this race telling everyone who asked […]

Right Foot, Left Foot

April 6, 2014

Moving forward is such a simple task. One foot in front of the other, one step at a time. That is precisely what I’ve spent this week doing. Letting myself have whatever moments I’ve needed but not holding on the past, being present and ready for whatever comes next. Thank you to every single person […]

I had an early morning on Saturday to head out to the Charlottesville 10 miler. The 10 miler is definitely a community event and was on my race bucket list. The course is challenging with lots of hills but it made for a great training run to get ready for the DC half in 4 […]

For the fun of it

March 26, 2014

Remember me and this space and the things I used to write about in it? I only kind of do. I wrote and unsuccessfully hit “publish” on two posts in the past 8 months. The reasons why they remained drafts are endless and ultimately don’t matter. What matter is that I missed the joy this […]

Dear future husband…

Dear future husband, There are a few things I think you should know about me. You should know that I don’t have a lot of free time and feel the most fulfilled when my weeks are full. I’m lucky to have multiple jobs that I love and challenge me in different ways. My career will […]

Boho Cycle Studio

March 26, 2013

Time is not on my side right now. I had the best of intentions to post this awesome paleo zucchini bread recipe last week. But between working 13 days in a row, two a days, and attempting (read: failing) to maintain a social life, things are falling behind. The recipe will get posted as soon […]

Opal Yoga

February 22, 2013

Charlottesville, I have some big news if you haven’t yet heard. We FINALLY have a vinyasa studio in town. And it is awesome. Actually, awesome doesn’t even begin to describe it. Opal had a soft opening on February 14th and a whole lot of yogis spent Valentines day opening their hearts together. The studio is […]

I was offered a seasonal position at the local lululemon athletica showroom in November that I couldn’t pass up. I was excited to work with two women whom I loved going on runs with and enjoyed seeing around town. I also didn’t mind that I’d get to try new fitness studios around town. There is […]
