The Shoes Are Telling Me The Story

I have been having issues lately with some nagging injuries in my hip and knee. I finally decided to abandon a newer pair of shoes that I just started using on April 1 and went into a pair that is two models older. I run in Nike LunarGlides. The pair that I noticed problems with…read more

runDisney Virtual Running Shorts – Yellow Shoes Race Is Now In Session

runDisney announced a new race series available to you while you are at home and NOT in Disney.  At first I was skeptical about the idea.  Yea it’s another chance for Disney to make money off of people (us runDisney lovers especiall).  But it’s also another opportunity for you to get your family or friends…read more

New Yoga Poses

In Yoga we did some new poses and one of my favorites was the Inversion Pose.  This pose was fun to do because I wore my heart rate monitor to class so I could view my stats.  The inversion pose really drops the heart rate quite a bit!  That’s because you have your feet in…read more

Getting In The Zone – Heart Rate Training

Getting Rid of Excess

This week in my Yoga class (that I really wasn’t in the mood to go to) the instructor talked to us about Excess. Every week as class begins, the instructor speaks to us from the book The Yamas and the Niyamas.  Excess can rob us from our Joy. Excess can be in the form of sleep,…read more

I’m On The Bench

Animal Kingdom Rivers of Light

Animal Kingdom, which used to be considered a “half day” park day at Walt Disney World is expanding its entertainment offerings with a new show.  The best part about this show is that it takes place AT NIGHT!  I am so excited that we will be there during it’s debut.  The show is scheduled to…read more
