Performance enhancing with Snoozecube

Sleep: the PED that for the longest time I didn’t quite embrace. It’s the least talked about but most important performance enhancer on the market. This isn’t to say I didn’t try to get more sleep. It’s not that I didn’t know I needed sleep to improve my performance, increase my recovery from hard workouts, and simply improve my cognitive functions long term…. I just suck at sleeping. The fastest running man will tell you, ““Sleep is extremely important to me – I …

not running makes me crazy: it’s time to take care of myself

Not running last week made my brain a bit nutty while taking time off after spraining my ankle. This week, I’m easing back into a solid running schedule with my coach and seeing how my ankle feels. Monday’s run attempt just sucked. Mentally, after multiple unexpected curveballs and Monday tornadoes, I started with a mindset I’m not proud to call my own. Co-working with a friend helped but my anxiety had taken over, I was too focused on solving this week’s out …

fit fueled and cookie crazed

Cookies. My second favorite. It probably annoys half of you that I constantly talk about eating things like a cookie or two for breakfast or popcorn and chips. But I’m about to tell you to grab your mixing bowl and have a bite or two. Your stomach and soul will thank me later. The truth is: cookies really aren’t all that bad for you… if you make them yourself with the right ingredients and intentions. My friends over at SkratchLabs and …

Training: but not really.

The truth is, I really haven’t been training with the intention to get better, faster, or stronger lately. I’ve been in a ridiculous funk. Life happens, right? I had old foot issue show up and it really messed with my head. I immediately attacked taking care of it but it still really messed with my head. After dry needling graston last week it’s feeling a lot better but still babying it for now! My ferritin is also ridiculously low and I haven’t been …

Reactions: Authenticity is key in Social Media

In a world filled with fake: be authentic. In a society filled with people trying to tell you to be someone or something you’re not: be authentic. Try so hard to hold onto you but be flexible to lean new things in the process. Know who you are and what you stand for. Someone can call you something or tell the world you’re something: that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re that something. If you take a step back and see that you …

CLTruns4Wards: Update!

Hey guys! I have an exciting updates on the CLTruns4wards project! We are delaying the deliveries a week. WHAT?! Why is this update exciting? It’s exciting because the Urban Ministry does a “Point-In-Time Count” data collection of the whereabouts of those around the city and they just finished conducting the most recent one. They will be sharing this information with us! We’re going to be able to take this and draw out a better map to use for location those …

Political Triggers: Women in Positions of Power

I was going to stay away from many of these political conversations. However, DeVos being confirmed as Secretary of Education strikes a Nerve. I don’t care that she’s a female in a government position. At first, I didn’t think I would say anything. Why?  My current persona is fitness, not politics. Why would people want to hear this from me? Maybe my following would fall away if they disagree. But y’all, my background is in politics. And if you leave …

Easy Healthy Kitchen Hacks!

It’s been far too long since I’ve done any sort of recipe anything on here! And for someone with a growing foodie account I figured I should share a few of my recipes and favorite eats! One of my favorite hacks that I discovered when it came to cooking individual servings of pastas and others tomato sauced dishes was what to do with canned and crushed tomatoes. This hack is something that can also be applied other purees and …

#CLTruns4wards: let’s do more.

Dream big. Touch as many lives as possible. Do as much good as you can. Never give up. I am so stoked to finally share a huge project and collaboration with a local non-profit and friend of mine that I have been working on the last few months! Right now, more than ever, we need to be doing more DIRECTLY for our communities. So many have asked what is it that I’m doing beyond my social media. Well, it’s …
