Stand Up For All Women

If the events surrounding Dr. Christine Beasley Ford and Judge Kavanaugh's testimonies on Capitol Hill were triggering for you last week, you’re not alone. With an FBI investigation underway, there’s no doubt in our minds that we’re going to be coping with this for another week or so. No matter where you stand on the political aisle, we just want to send a reminder that this community is a safe space for women to connect with each other through running and fitness to support, uplift, and encourage one another other - physically and mentally.

Recap: We Attended Wanderlust 108 in Philadelphia

Disclaimer: I attended Wanderlust 108 on behalf of Swisse USA (you’ll learn more about them below!)

My first experience at Wanderlust 108 was amazing! New to Wanderlust 108? It’s a day-long ‘mindful triathlon’ where attendees complete a 5K, yoga, and guided meditation (three of my favorite activities) in the same day. I was invited by our friends at Swisse Wellness, Australia’s number one vitamin and supplement company, to attend Wanderlust 108 and the Swisse Discover Happiness Experience. If you’re considering attending Wanderlust 108 in the future or you’re just interested in how it went, continue reading below for my full recap.

What I've Learned From Therapy

In last week's newsletter, I opened up about my experience with therapy. I'll admit it, I wasn't sure if I should get this personal in our newsletter but because of the stigma associated with therapy and mental health, I decided to share my experience in hopes that it could help someone else.

Recap: We Tried Focus Barre & Yoga

We were excited to host (2) private sessions at Focus Barre & Yoga in Rittenhouse for a few reasons. First, we hosted a private session with them FOUR years ago when they first opened their doors. It's amazing to see how much they've grown. Second, Jill and her team are absolutely amazing.

They were very welcoming, kind, and supportive. All the traits you need when considering joining any studio. Lastly, the workouts are unique (and tough). You will feel like you've accomplished all there is to accomplish after just one session in this studio.
