Peloton made a name for itself with their bike (read my review of the bike here); however, their treadmill experience is equally as awesome. Check them out here if you are interested!

The Work Behind the Wins

I am certain we have all had moments in life where we have compared ourselves to other people. I know certainly that I have compared, felt envious, jealous, or thought “I wish I was so lucky”. As of late, I have felt more and more grounded in my own actions, and accomplishments, and with that […]

Un-learning “Fear Based” Love

During a recent conversation with a friend, we were reminded of how often people (ourselves/myself included) love from a place of fear.
