Support, Style, and Choosing Attitude Over Abs

Support, Style, and Choosing Attitude Over Abs

You wanna hear a secret that I wish someone had told me 10 years ago? Being comfortable working out in a sports bra (without a shirt on) is less about abs than it is about attitude. via GIPHY This is something I’ve been learning over the course of the summer — as I ditch the shirt when I start shvitzing in yoga class, or when I step outside to run and realize I’m sweating before I’ve even warmed up — and the idea is backed up by this great NY Times opinion piece about what it’s like to be a “Bra…

6 Reasons to Join the Sydney Running Festival

6 Reasons to Join the Sydney Running Festival

G’day, FBG crew! Earlier this fall I was invited to lace up my kicks and head Down Under to join 37,000 other runners at Blackmores’ Sydney Running Festival, a one-day, four-race event in the Aussie city — you might’ve caught a little bit of the excitement when I took over the FBG Instastory on race day. It wasn’t the first time racing away from my home turf in Miami (I’ve run in the Bahamas, Antigua, Vancouver and with FBG Kristen in Jamaica’s Kingston City Run). But it was the first time I’ve run in the Southern Hemisphere (and, no, races…

CrossFit and Powerlifting: Are These Competitions for You?

CrossFit and Powerlifting: Are These Competitions for You?

I never saw myself becoming a competitive CrossFit athlete prior to signing up for my first competition a year ago. My friend, Katie Kecman, says the same thing about the powerlifting meets she’s been participating in for the past year. And yet, here we are, both of us having earned spots on the podium in our respective sports. How does that happen? How do two people who are primarily into running and yoga become decorated CrossFit and powerlifting competitors? In this post, I talked a little about my experience — how I got started and what it took to be…

Our Running Mantras + New Gear

Our Running Mantras + New Gear

There’s just a little more than a week left of the year, which has us feeling all the feels and doing all of the reflecting. Because it has been A YEAR. We celebrated 10 years, we redesigned our site and logo, we launched new online courses, and we’ve had the privilege of being in your inboxes and in your social media feeds for another trip around the sun. We’ve also had the chance to be a Brooks Running blog ambassador again — and, man, we’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: Brooks not only creates high-quality and incredible…

On Your Mark, Get Set, Give

On Your Mark, Get Set, Give

Cleaning out my closet is one of those activities that’s not always easy, but I’m always, always happy once I’ve done it — especially when I’ve done it really thoroughly. It’s kind of like a tough workout in that way, right? You approach it with mixed emotions — a little dread, a little excitement. You get into it and sometimes, boy, it can be a struggle — mostly emotional, but depending on just how much you’re getting rid of, I suppose it can be physically challenging, too. But every time you finish a nice big closet purge, oh, it feels…
