Hello friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend! I hit up a friend’s surprise birthday party on Friday night, then got my butt kicked on Saturday morning by this workout at CrossFit Arlington: Um, yikes. Still sore. Continue Reading …

Adventures in Epic Yoga

IMG_2394

As you guys probably know by now, for me fitness is all about keeping it fun and varied. Recently, I’ve been enjoying checking out some of the different yoga studios in the area with my friend Gena! A week and a half ago we met for a noon power house class at a new (to me) studio in Dupont called Epic Yoga. Great name, right? Gena has been Continue Reading …

Workout Buddies FTW

My #1 tip for staying in shape? Find a workout buddy. Or in my case, find numerous workout buddies. :) The more the merrier, as far as I’m concerned! Over the years I’ve accrued quite an arsenal of local running buddies, Matt is my usual CrossFit workout buddy, and I’m happy to have added Gena as my yoga class buddy! Gena and I have had Continue Reading …

Girls’ Night: Yoga & Homemade Pizza

Morning! I had another fun exercise + dinner date with my college BFF Turner on Tuesday night! We had plans to go running but it was stormy out; we decided it was perfect yoga weather, instead. :) We hit up Stroga in Adams Morgan for a 50 minute power hour class. I was in need of some stretching — it felt GOOD! After yoga, we headed back to Continue Reading …

Morning! I had a fun night last night — it started with my Lululemon Georgetown Tuesday night run club! As usual, we all met at the store at 6:30 and headed out from there. This time, instead of running towards the monuments, we decided to run over the Key Bridge and down to Roosevelt Island! I love Roosevelt Island — it’s hard to Continue Reading …

Morning, friends! Have I mentioned how much I love the Lululemon Georgetown run club? It’s every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.; I had a reader email me last week asking if the run club was free, and if so, what the catch was. No catch! Just an awesome free workout. Although I can’t promise you won’t be tempted to buy some of Lululemon’s cute Continue Reading …

The Awesome Workout that Almost Wasn’t

Why is a running club so awesome? Because when it’s a billion degrees outside and you’re feeling worn out after a long day at your (unpaid) internship and an annoying commute and want to bail… you go anyway, because you know people would miss you if you didn’t. And then, guess what happens? You have a great run. And of course, as always, Continue Reading …

Running Rock Creek Park & Free Yoga

Good morning! We had a stunning weekend weather-wise here in DC — a very nice reprieve after the past week of unbearable steaminess! I celebrated on Saturday morning by going for a run. :) My running buddy Sokphal and I decided to mix things up and go running in Rock Creek Park! I’d never run in Rock Creek before — it was pretty!
