A 5k Wrap-Up

We are almost halfway through October, I know I know I’m sorry for reminding you, and I must say that this month has been quite an exciting one so far! Two Saturdays ago I participated in the Del Mar Mud Run, a 5k featuring off-road obstacle courses, and pics are in! There were mud cannons, […]

Gratitude Check

Some days, it feels like everything is in sync. You wake up on the right side of the bed, there’s no traffic on the way to work, your morning coffee tastes extra delicious, and it feels like, well, a Friday. Some days are more challenging. Some days it seems like nothing is going right, like […]

Failure, Progress, and Freedom.

Focus. Breathe. Tighten. Relax. Clear your mind. Tune in to your body. Drop your shoulders. Don’t forget to breathe, again. I hear a seagull outside. Focus, Sarah. Okay. Don’t drop your belly. Open up your hips. You’re not breathing, again. That person next to me is really getting into that open-mouthed exhale… One more breath […]

September is for Self-Care

Hello everyone! I hope that you all had an absolutely fabulous holiday weekend. I know that I did! It is rare for me to get two days off in a row, and I took full advantage of them! I went to the beach, rode bikes along the boardwalk, miraculously avoided a sunburn, cuddled with the […]
