Hey! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! My weekend was all fun and no work. Yesterday morning instead of riding the bus for over an hour to get to an amazing yoga class at Athleta, I ran!! Typical commute/wait time on bus: 1-1.5 hours each way (painfully slow) Commute time on foot: 29 minutes […]

Hey! It’s finally Friday! We made it 😉 Yesterday, I took the time to slow down and go to a yoga class. I do my own practice at home but there is nothing like going to an hour and a half class that is structured and well taught. Since increasing my running over the past […]
