Sydney, Australia: I'm Coming Back For You

•••
Four years ago, I landed in Sydney, Australia to study abroad. I had reservations about going because I had so many great gigs at the time and I didn't want to risk losing them if I left. Okay, and I was totally in love with my best friend and I thought we would never have a chance once I got back. Spoiler alert: Everything totally worked out and we got toge[...]

I Auditioned for American Ninja Warrior. Now What?

•••
So it’s been quite a while since you last saw me train. How have things been since? It’s been okay. Just okay. I wish that I could tell you that I went hardcore beast mode and I can salmon ladder my way up the Empire State Building. But, alas, I cannot.

The past few months have been a roller coaster of training and I will admit, I didn’t follow my prescribed training plan (sorry!) but with all the cross training I do, I think I’m in pretty good standing for 13.1. Before this,[...]

My Very First Cross-Training Event with #ClassPassRunner

•••
When ClassPass reached out and wanted to help me prepare for this year’s Nike Women’s Half Marathon, I wasn’t even sure that I wanted to run again, but I was definitely persuaded. Why? Because a few years back, I lost my love for running and have struggled to find it ever since. I used to thrive off that elusive runner’s high, but these days, it doesn’t serv[...]
