The stoke level is rising

I leave for Las Vegas for BlogFest tomorrow! I can’t believe it’s that time already. It’s going to be quite a switch for me, coming from a month of being in a bikini at the beach to a fitness conference in Vegas. I’ve been pretty quiet lately, enjoying some restoration, self care, and lots of…

Two Worlds Collide, in Vegas

In one week from today, BlogFest 2017 kicks off in Las Vegas! I simply can’t believe it’s that time again. It feels like we were just in LA for last year’s conference. With our amazing photo booth, protein shake shenanigans, DTLA run-ventures, so much sweat… I had to start thinking about my packing for BlogFest…

MonDAZED but Motivated

We got back from an amazing, sweaty, restful, fun weekend feeling… exhausted! Let’s first talk why I’m feeling exhausted. We headed to Hood River for three days to teach at the OutFound Festival. It kicked off in true Flex & Flow fashion: with a dance party. What better way to celebrate the amazing view and sunset…

Correndo em Lisboa

#tbt to 8 years ago, just a young little chippy studying abroad in Sevilla, Spain.  For years I’d been a runner, mostly playing sports and training for those sports. But I ran a lot. Even though I’d exercised, trained, and been very active for most of my life, I thought I maxed out at 3-4…

Never fear, spring is here!

It’s the first day of spring! I’m not quite sure I’m ready for spring. I love winter! The boots and fleeces, the romantic snow globe-esque ski towns, the powder days, Christmas, the excuse to consume hot cocoa at any time… There’s so much to love about winter! But between last weekend in Sonoma and this…

Fitcations are THE thing!

What is a a fitcation? It’s a fitness vacation! What is a fitness vacation? I will say this could be confusing as every trip and vacation involves activities in some capacity for me. But a fitcation is a vacation centered around an activity. Surfing in Costa Rica, skiing in Colorado, tango in Buenos Aires, and…

Finding Strength in Stillness

This past week is yet another reminder to me that stillness, quiet, and rest are just as important to being strong as running, push-ups, weight lifting, and all the other activities I love to do. Last week was rough. Getting back from 6 days in LA (5 of which were 18-hour non-stop action-packed days), less than 3…

Indy Interlude

For Woman Crush Wednesday today I have to feature my partners-in-crime from our trip to Indianapolis for Fitbloggin: Jamie and Nicci! After the previous week in LA for BlogFest, to say we were tired is to state the obvious… But we unpacked, laundered, and repacked our bags, chugged some coffee, and headed for PDX. Only…

BlogFest + IDEAWorld 2016 Recap

In case you missed the onslaught on Instagram, we were in L.A. last week for BlogFest and IDEAWorld. It was four (plus our extra 2.5 of prep and break down) amazing and exhausting days full of Sweat Pink squad bonding, sweating, blogging learning, and booth babing. It’s a time of inspiration and motivation and of being…
