my first half marathon

Growing up, I was someone who hated running. I would run to stay in shape for soccer, but I didn't enjoy a single minute of it. If I wasn't chasing a ball, what was the point? That's probably why just last winter, you could hear me saying I'd never run a half. But somewhere along the way, in between following all your adventures on instagram and my best friend swearing it'd be fun, I decided I'd sign up for a half marathon. I figured if I'm actually going to do this, I might as well pick a fun course. So this past Sunday, I ran my first ever half as part of RunDisney's Rebel Challenge. It took literal blood, sweat, and tears, but I crossed that finish line prouder than I've ever been. Added bonus: I learned a lot along the way.

challenge: move 17 minutes!

2017 is going to be the year we break up with our snooze button! no more saying "just five more minutes," and no more rushing to fit in some miles because we slept in. it takes practice to become a habit, so as added motivation this week, we're going to move at least 17 minutes every morning. why'd we pick an odd number like 17? because it's 2017. (and we may have already eaten 17 tabs this year. leg cramps are no joke!)

and we're challenging you to do it with us!

Don’t sell yourself short

Don’t sell yourself short, compete clean!

Last month, I spent an inspiring few days up in the mountains of Whistler at a retreat led by the soulful athletes at Lululemon. The challenge at this retreat was less about the 12-mile mountain trail runs and more about self reflection and personal purpose. The challenge was clear: ‘we are going to have some big talk conversations versus the safe and boring small talk’.

Coming out of this retreat, I realized that we must start having the ‘big talk’ around competing clean in sport. We hold up a few doping (cheating) scapegoats that have been caught to demonstrate that we believe it is unacceptable. But have we really stepped back to think about why doping is bad? And why competing clean is the correct choice for our competition, for ourselves, and for the true spirit of sport? Just as important, what actions are we taking to create positive change? Clean sport an important initiative, both for me personally and for the industry at large. Here’s why.

This month’s nuuntini recipe is as simple as can be.

The classic whiskey sour contains lemon juice, lime juice, simple syrup, and whiskey. We’ve substituted Nuun Lemon Lime for the fruit juices, and since Nuun is naturally sweet, we can skip all the added sugar as well! All you’ll need to do for this tasty nuuntini is brew up some extra-strength Nuun, and add a shot of whiskey.
