Yoga Workout Playlist No. 5 (Spotify Playlist)

Yoga Workout Playlist No. 5 (Spotify Playlist)

Alright, so another playlist means another story. (See my last story and playlist here.) I’ve been *really* bad with stretching in the past 6 months. I foam rolled for maybe 5 minutes before my workouts. But aside from that, I didn’t stretch at all, and I didn’t go to yoga once this semester. So about two weeks ago, my lack of stretching finally caught up with me. I developed a weird tightness in my left forearm and wrist, which was…

Fast-Paced Fall with SOS Rehydrate

Fast-Paced Fall with SOS Rehydrate

Fall 2015 was a combination of being exhilarated, terrified, happy, and overwhelmed . . . and I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.

If you ask me what it’s like to be an Army officer candidate and a law student at the same time, I’ll give you these responses . . . I love that there’s a cup of coffee in that photo because I’m totally guilty of caffeinating while stressed. The goal is to be jittery and motivated enough to conquer a mile-long to-do list while sleep deprived. Don’t get me wrong. I like school and have come a LONG way in…

Lately + 5×5 Circuit Workout

Lately + 5×5 Circuit Workout

Words can’t even begin to describe everything that’s happened since I last stopped in. A lot of good stuff. Some bad stuff. But that’s life, right? The good . . . competing in the Army ROTC 6th Brigade Ranger Challenge competition! Photo by Taryn Boyer Ruck running 30 miles in two days with added challenges along the way is, without a doubt, the most grueling thing I’ve ever done. I’m SO grateful to have had the opportunity to compete as…
