Why Every Runner Should Be Doing Pilates!

As some of you know I am running my first Half Marathon in July! Let’s just say running and I haven’t always had the best relationship… I was the kid who faked sick the day we had to run the mile in gym class. I just never thought it was something that I could enjoy. Today I happily admit that I was wrong.  I have been training for the last 9 weeks and now actually look forward to my runs. Wha?!?  In my teaching career I have worked with a lot of runners so know how…

feelfood, feel good

Lanae’s Go-To Lunch Spot In the sea of fast food that is 14th street, there is nothing that gets us flexers more excited than a new healthy eatery. Welcome feelfood! Located on 6th & 12th, this organic shop is going to be your new go to.

Think spelt wrap with chicken, I add avocado (duh), goat cheese (duh again) & kale. Good-bye midday slump! And don’t worry, if something…
