September Update

Happy September, everyone!  September is Yoga Month.  That means lots of free yoga classes to choose from.  Click here to learn more.

September is also the month in which I will compete in Fight Gone Bad 5 to raise money for Livestrong, the Wounded Warrior Project and the CrossFit Foundation.  I'm well on my way to meeting my fundraising goals and appreciate all your support!

The Newport Half Marathon is less than two months away (and Philly's just a few weeks after that.)  My training got off to a rocky start, but I recently ran a 10 mile race in Brooklyn and felt pretty good, so I think that's a good sign.  I'm still determined to beat my Disney Princess time.

I'm also part way through the 100 Push-up Challenge.  I've managed to strain my shoulder a bit (from lawyering, not push-ups), so I'm taking it easy this week, but I expect to jump back in soon. 

Also, some of you have asked if I've broken my one pull-up record.  It hasn't happened yet, but I am still working at it almost every time I'm in the gym and promise to keep you posted!

You strained your shoulder from lawyering? How??

stress + typing all day = tension and, eventually, strained muscle. It's better now, though!
