Update on my training: Publix Savannah Women’s Half!

The 2nd Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5k is in less than a week, which means that most runners should’ve been training for a while now.

When I’m training for a half or full marathon I usually run 4 times a week: a couple of easy/recovery runs, a speed/tempo run and a long run. I also like adding some yoga and cross-training in the mix to avoid injuries and strengthen different muscles.

My favorite (and probably most used) “hashtag” on Instagram is by far #girlswholift . When you search this item, you are shown an overwhelming amount of inspirational pictures and quotes from females who partake in what is typically associated with a MAN’S sport…

Publix Savannah Women’s Half & 5K

For 2015 I have many fitness goals: I want to complete my second Ironman 70.3, I want to run my 6th marathon and I want to race in a few half marathons, among them the inaugural Publix Savannah Women’s Half & 5K, which I’m extremely excited about.

Connect + Create + Celebrate

I’m so excited to announce that my first workshop is finally here! I feel extremely blessed to be able to have the opportunity to educate others next to the wonderful Kendall Beene and Gretchen West.

If you are in Savannah, come join us for an unforgettable morning of yoga, juicing, and conversation. In this workshop, we will flow through an all-levels yoga class and learn the powerful benefits of juicing and blending. We’ll also develop effective tools to take the connections we make on the yoga mat with us out into the world.
