2018 Goals #BeBraveAndGrow

As 2017 comes to an end (thank god!), I'm looking forward to 2018 with much excitement.  
In terms of my training, 2017 started off fabulous.  I was hitting the mileage I needed to get 1700 miles in 2017.  BUT, then stupid bronchitis hit me like a Mac truck several times.   And then a badly sprained ankle.   Both tried to keep me down, but I got back up again.  I focused on gaining more strength.  

Then I added in a lot more yoga.   With regular yoga classes, yogalates, and aerial yoga, I'm feeling that I have the yoga bug back and I'm loving it.   

I'm focusing on a strong 2018 and would absolutely be thrilled if I could build my mileage back up to a 1600+ year.  To keep me motivated I've already gone and signed up for several races: 

MidWinter Classic  You never know what the day will bring.  A Sunday morning race in early February can mean 40+ degrees or negative temps with brutal winds.  Who knows!  But I do know that I'll be there tearing up the course aga…

prAna is where it's at! #giftedprAna

I was sent a pair of Kara Jeans and the Rockaway Jacket as part of this campaign for prAna.  I was not required to give a positive review.  As always, all opinions expressed on my blog are 100% my own.  

On my (very short) list of must-have clothing, prAna is at the top.   Not only does prAna stand for amazing quality they are a company that prides themselves for their sustainability.   prAna's clothing line includes many pieces that are Fair Trade, recycled clothing, and hemp clothing.   That very fact that prAna is conscientious about the materials they use to create their gorgeous and amazingly comfortable clothing makes prAna a company I will always go to when I want to add more to my daily collection.   

In addition to the sustainability of prAna, they also make the most comfortable workout and day-wear clothing I've ever worn!    A little backstory for me, many of you know I'm a teacher.  I absolutely hated wearing "school clothes" to work.  I would long to w…

The Must-Have Sports Massager..... MYO Buddy

I received a MYOBuddy as part of a campaign with FitApproach.  All opinions in expressed in my blog are 100% my own.  

If you haven't started your holiday shopping, it's probably time to start now.   But better yet, if you haven't started your shopping, I have a the best gift idea for you!  This gift can be for ANYBODY!   

Young, old, man, woman - whomever, whatever!  It doesn't matter.   The MYOBuddy fits just right for everybody on your shopping list.    If you or someone you know suffers from chronic pain, then you need to get them a MYOBuddy.   If you know someone who suffers from insomnia or chronic stress, then they need a MYOBuddy!   Or what about the forever athlete?  Yep!  They need one!   

Living in a house full of runners, I can attest that all runners NEED MYOBuddy!   Ward and I brought the MYOBuddy along on our road trip to Pennsylvania over Thanksgiving.   After sitting in a car for over 9 hours, we were definitely right and sore.   Knowing we had a race …
