How to Exercise in the Morning (And Like It)

Every so often, it will be 4:30 am on a Friday morning and I will be sitting in my car in the driveway debating on whether or not my spin class will miss me if I don’t show up. Actually, it is most Friday mornings. Because I fit training and fitness instruction around a full […]


The Return of the Coppi

It all started in 2011. Jesse had come to visit me in England and we wanted to do something epic. So we bought some road bikes for a day and adventures ensured.  Needless to say, when I returned, I bought a vintage Coppi which is an Italian bike with a European brake system. Love at […]


The massage therapist who didn’t give a massage

One thing I am finding out about myself as I grow into my adult life is that I don’t trust my decisions enough. I am still learning everything there is to know about me as an adult. I knew me pretty well as a teenager, but there is nothing like belly flopping into the real […]

Interview with Kathryn Bertine

We literally are all the way back to Friday again. I could not be happier. This week has been utter and complete madness for me. I will not lament but rather focus on awesomer things. So a while back, I gave away a book. Yes, I am STILL on about Kathryn Bertine. The woman is […]


Fitness Friday: the only place you can look normal with neon padded shorts

Hey everyone. It’s the almost WEEKEND! Fridays are always very full for me. I get up at 4 am and teach two classes before heading into the office. I don’t mind the early wake up, because my first class of the day is spin, which leads me to the blog theme today… Teaching spin is […]
