Charles Du Bos Recently one of my favorite Peloton instructors, Robin Arzon, was discussing some of the steps she took prior to, and during, her career transition from law to fitness.

The Lessons in the Loss

In every instance there are choices and we can make the conscious choice to learn and grow, or to stay angry/hurt and stagnant. I recently experienced a heartbreak/grief/loss of relationship, and I am working quite hard to remember the lessons in the loss. I know it can be easy to default toward our hurt, but […]

The Show Must Go On

Sorry COVID, but you don’t get to win today. Back in the early part of this year, I decided to sign up for a half marathon, which you can read about here. I was so excited! I felt so nervous, but in the best way. Since then, clearly COVID came barreling through like the fun-sucking […]

Chaos or Calm?

Your outside world will match your inside. Unknown I have heard this quote before, but was reminded by Mark Groves podcast recently. I know that for myself, this has been (annoying to admit) true. This can also be something that’s hard for us to accept, if we aren’t ready or willing to admit that we […]
