Group exercise is my favorite way to break a sweat. I used to teach barre classes in Orlando and hope to return to the front of the class soon! I’m still getting used to the different types of studios and classes offered in my (new-ish) city, but here are the specialty classes I’ve tried thus far.

Running has always been a mental release for me. I only started running for distance and time a couple of years ago, and am so thankful to have a passion for it. I know not everyone does, and also realize that some people actually despise it.

I get that. But, to those of you who haven’t really given the sport of running a fair try, here’s some more info to hopefully inspire you to give it a go!

Race Recaps:

I love to train for long distance races. So far, I have raced in three half marathons with PR of 1:58:31. My goal is to run at least two more before going for a full marathon. (Yes, that is on my Fitness Bucket List!)

Half-Marathon Training (Intermediate) 6 Week Plan:

This is a six week half-marathon training plan I came up with on my own, specifically catered to what works best for me, and I would only recommend it to those who can already run a 10K or 6 miles without stopping. Keep scrolling for my 10-week training plan if you are looking for something closer to a beginner level.

Half-Marathon Training (Beginner) 10 Week Plan:
