If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you will know that my goal for 2016 is to run a race, or participate in at least one fun active event, once a month. So far I’ve hit my goal this year running races, and with each and every one I can see an improvement (crossfit season is coming up so you can expect a few of those events later in my calendar). I’d like to say all this improvement in my running was my doing, but in reality I’ve been motivated by an amazing coach and all the girls I run with in my #9to5challenge group. Umm…… so what the heck is the #9to5challenge!!?! It’s a challenge setup by coach Jeannie (in association with Modern Athlete) to get your butt off the couch and run 5km in 9 weeks….

I really enjoy practicing yoga but I don’t always get the time to attend regular classes, my practice is made up of mostly short sessions at home after running or early morning when I need to stretch out a bit and shake off the night’s sleep. I’m not entirely sure how I stumbled across Yoga Works but I think seeing photos posted by friends doing yoga out in the park is what attracted my attention….
