The Real Fit podcast features candid conversations with women athletes on topics including body image, enoughness, and so much more. In a world that's hell-bent on telling women we're not thin enough, fast enough, strong enough, or successful enough, I'm here to tell you you're already enough. My goal is to share stories that inspire … Continue reading Real Fit Podcast
Today was an easy 30 minutes on the treadmill, about three miles. I say "about" because somewhere around the eight minute mark, I hit the "ifit" button instead of the "fan" button and the treadmill totally reset and started from zero.

I used to enjoy the quiet solitude of running outside, listening only to the sound of my … Continue reading Running Unplugged
