I just love to see people get faster and improve.  Better yet, I love to see them overcome and prevent injuries.  Through Individual Running Form Analysis I am able to give them individual form-feedback for immediate improvement.  It’s so great to see the light-bulb go on for people and have them get exciting about running faster in such a short time.  Contact me today to schedule yours done.

Yay! Women of Steel has moved back to American Fork!

logo-woman-of-steel-triThere is just something about women-only events that is great! Maybe is the “girl-power” or the great  boyfriends, brother’s, grandpa’s and Dad’s that get out and cheer for the women in their life.  The Women of Steel Triathlon was one of the first triathlons I did so it hold a special place in my heart.  I remember racking my bike on the metal racks and waiting in line for my turn to jump in the water.  I was nervous and excited all at the same time!  It was good competition and those ladies inspired me to do better and push harder.  Last year they moved it to a new venue but I am so glad it has been moved back to AF where I remember it being.  Join in the fun and save 10% using the code BLONDERUNNER10

Product Review: YogDev Yoga Wheel

December 1, 2016 by  
Filed under Fitness, News, Product Reviews, Weight Loss

yogdev-wheel-multi-pic

I am a big fan of yoga! I think it’s really great for runners and I know it helps my muscles recover from workouts.  It’s something that I started integrating into my training some time ago and I believe one of the reasons I am able to function so well today.  I was thrilled to try out this new wheel I got from YogDev for my own home practice at home (my kids love it too).  It’s great because the wheel comes with this little card showing you how to use it doing the poses, it’s simple.

yogdev-wheel-card-real-11-30-2016The bridge and bow were very doable for me.  Many of the poses are beyond my ability but it gives me something to strive for.  It’s a high quality product.  This could also make a great gift for any fitness enthusiast.  Learn more Learn more about yogdev wheels
