I may no longer be calling it the “dreadmill.” After much anticipation from the running community, RacePace, Houston’s first treadmill studio is up and running. With temperatures quickly beginning to rise, their soft opening comes at the perfect time for Houstonian runners. I was lucky to be part of their first ever RP Speed class on
Whoever said two miles was easy was a big, fat liar. I’m telling you from first hand experience, it’s not. Especially when it’s 4 p.m. in the afternoon in hot, humid Texas. While it may not have been easy, the Bayou Bash Relays, hosted by the Bayou City Road Runners at the lovely TC Jester Park, sure was a blast. I did relays all the time growing up as a swimmer, but when it comes to sports on land, I tend to fly solo. Running this past weekend was a solid reminder of how much I actually love being part of a team.
In Houston, we pretty much LIVE for these incredible months of pre-summer weather. Just before the heat really cranks up we get to pretend we live in California and just bask in the beautiful sunny weather. So with that said, when it’s beautiful outdoors (fingers crossed for no thunderstorms), I love to practice yoga outdoors. And this weekend, I have two opportunities to do so: tomorrow at Yoga on the Avenue and Sunday at Mind Tribe’s Vinyasa Tribe. Here are five reasons why I love practicing outdoors and why you might, too!
Last week, I had the opportunity to hit the road and head to Dallas for the Indie Beauty Expo. It was the first time the expo made it to Texas as past shows have been in LA and NYC. I was really impressed by how many brands traveled from all over the U.S. (and the
I’ve totally been digging the unicorn trend lately. I may not be into consuming all of the sugar it involves, but I’m a pink girl (and Lisa Frank fanatic) at heart so this trend pretty much makes me swoon. Which is why when fellow blogger and boss babe, Erin, a.k.a. Ms. Independent, announced the theme of her annual event I was in L-O-V-E.
Sprint for Life is one of those races that has always been on my list, but then something else comes up. In fact, my dad has done it every year and I haven’t! This year, my dad was out of town so we were flip flopped. While this race had been on my radar for
Springtime in Houston is the best. The weather is perfect, patios are calling with crawfish and beer, and there’s a race to run almost every weekend! My marathon season usually ends after Houston and the half in Austin so I spend spring focusing on speed and fun. So here’s my list of the best (short)
One of the things I love about Austin is that the terrain is so different than my home in Houston less than three hours away. Having moved from Hawaii where I ran hills daily, to Houston where running hills takes some planning and creativity, the Austin Half Marathon is always pretty humbling.
Going into Super Bowl week I was slightly concerned. I had friends in town and other than the commercials, food is my favorite part of watching the big game. Surprisingly, surviving the Whole 30 during the Super Bowl wasn’t as challenging as I expected. Here’s how. Whole 30 Friendly Versions. I made some really delicious Whole 30
Super Bowl LI is H-town bound next week, and spoiler alert: that’s a big freaking deal. Houston has been prepping for the big game for months and downtown looks better than ever. I’ve never lived in a city that’s hosted the Super Bowl (while I lived there), so I’m excited to see how things shake
