Hi, guys! Many of you have been following my journey of staying active through my hip injury, and, today, I thought I’d dive into a little more detail about what this was like – and how frustrating and draining it can be! I am grateful I was able to keep up with daily exercise routine (when my schedule allowed), but it definitely required a mindshift and different way of approaching my workouts. I hope this post helps…

With the CrossFit Open kicking off later today (woohoo!), I wanted to share some of the posts I’ve written about the “Sport of Fitness” over the years. I figured having them all in one place would be useful for those of you thinking about trying CrossFit in the future. I hope you find them helpful! And GOOD LUCK to those of you participating in the Open this year! 5 CrossFit Tips for Beginners: Ready to try CrossFit? Here…

Hello, hello! So, guys, I’m happy to report that a whole lot of working out happened last week. Woohoo! I managed to fit in SIX (!) workouts, which I’m pretty sure is a PR since becoming a mom. Haha! Ok, so after barely working out since the New Year, I was starting to feel cranky/stressed, and I know exercise keeps me sane, so I knew something needed to change. I wasn’t making it to CrossFit all that much,…

Have no idea what to get the special CrossFitter in your life for the holidays? Well, look no further! Here are some gift ideas to make them smile from ear-to-ear on Christmas morning. These suggestions are a mix of products that I already own and love and things that I would personally like to see under the Christmas tree! 🙂 WODDice: How fun are these!? I totally want a pair for home to help Mal and…

This blog post was originally published on March 2015, but it’s topic that readers frequently contact me about. And with marathon and half marathon season upon us, I thought it would be helpful to share it again. Enjoy!  I get questions all the time from readers about how to best balance CrossFit with running, specifically long distance running, like training for a half or full marathon and, honestly, I never really knew how to reply mostly because…

Last week, I was invited to attend the Reebok CrossFit Training Grounds at Reebok’s Global Headquarters in Canton, Massachusetts. The Training Grounds is an opportunity for qualifying CrossFit Games athletes to come together before the Games, receive coaching from some of the world’s top coaches, and utilize the facilities at Reebok CrossFit One in a stress-free environment where they can focus on training. Basically, it allows the athletes to have fun while getting prepared for the biggest competition of their careers. And, of…

Woohoo! I survived the 2016 CrossFit Open! Holy hell, I’m glad it’s over. It was a long 5 weeks and my body needs a break. Well, actually, I just want to get back to my normal routine. The Open took so much out of me, I barely worked out since it started. I was too sore after the workout and then I didn’t want to be sore for the next one, so I was only working out 2-3 times a…

Good morning and happy Monday to you! I hope you had a very nice Easter! When I was brainstorming with Mal about how to recap our weekend on CNC, I kept talking about how it was our second time doing certain things, like Quinn’s second Easter and our second time suffering through Open WOD 14.5, so I decided to use it as a theme for this morning’s blog post. Ok, here we go… counting the seconds from our weekend! It…

Good morning and happy Monday! With the CrossFit Open kicking off just last week, I decided to write this post in honor of its first workout (16.1), so here are 16 things/fun facts/randomness from the weekend! #1: On Saturday morning, Mal, Quinn, and I went to breakfast at a new (to us) restaurant called Crossroads Cafe. It was adorable inside, the food was tasty, and the staff was really friendly. We’ll definitely be back! #2: We kept…

Today’s the day! My winter half marathon is finally here! And by the time you read this blog post, I will have crossed the finish line after running 13.1 (chilly) miles. I’ll share my recap later this week! Wish me luck! WEEK 7 Sunday: 10 miles Monday: KFIT 28:49 Rx (my abs were sore for dayssssss!) Tuesday: Off Wednesday: CrossFit Used #95 for Squat Clean Thruster + worked my way up to #125 X 3…

Good morning and happy Sunday to you! I had some really great workouts recently, but I didn’t do all that much running. Whomp whomp. Between the holidays and the opportunity to work out with Mal while he was on Christmas break, I ended up at CrossFit quite a lot. But since the race is only a few weeks away, I’m planning to schedule more mid-week runs to get myself back on track! WEEK 5 Sunday: 8 miles Monday: KFIT Tuesday:…

Hellooooo and happy, happy, happy Monday to you! We had quite a busy weekend over here, so let’s get right to it with a weekend recap! FRIDAY Day 11: Take a family photo! SATURDAY Mal recently joined a new CrossFit, so Quinn and I went with him to check it out on Saturday morning. The WOD was a partner workout, so Mal and I teamed up, which meant we needed to share a bar and…

Hi, guys! Training for my winter half marathon has officially started! And I have to admit, I’m really enjoying cold weather running. (I know”¦ who am I?) I’m so not a fan of winter, but I really enjoy running in the “chilly” temps. Well, right now I do. We’ve had a fairly mild November and early December, so we’ll see how I feel about winter running come January. Anyway, my training is off to a…

Heyyyy! What’s up? How’s life? Anything new? I just wanted to share what we’ve been up to the past couple of days. Here goes! Quinn decided that we wants to be a bald eagle for Halloween. He loves birds and does a really great “caw-caw,” so we figured it would be the perfect costume for him. He’s going to look so adorable! FYI: I bought the bald eagle costume from Amazon. Speaking of Halloween costumes,…
