Lately: Pumpkin, Yoga & Game Day

Happy Saturday!


After a nearly hour and a half weather delay, I’m parked on the couch cheering on the Dawgs! It’s game day and it’s always a stressful game when we’re playing South Carolina. I wore myself earlier today so couch time is welcome. I did my long run early this morning, taught hot yoga, trained a client and then cleaned my entire house. It was in serious need!

Here’s a glimpse of life lately…


I finally broke down and ate my first pumpkin baked good and drank my first pumpkin beer. This pumpkin apple muffin from Sunflour was pretty amazing. I’m still not ready for fall and pumpkin but I am taking baby steps.


And I had a dark and delicious pumpkin beer at Heist Brewery earlier in the week.


I’ve been teaching a lot of yoga. My classes at Om Yoga have been extra special lately. I had a full house on Friday for my lunch class.


And I had my Saturday morning hot class partner up for ab work today. Love this studio and these yogis. Head’s up local readers…if you’re interested in teacher training Maria Lages (owner of the studio) and Johnna Smith (who I did my teacher training with) are partnering up to hold Om Yoga’s first teacher training. It starts in January. If you’re interested in doing your 200-hour…this is going to be good! πŸ™‚ And remember, you don’t have to want to teach to do teacher training…you just have to be ready for transformation and deepening your yoga practice. Please email me if you have any questions!


I attended the grand opening of Tank’s Tap on Friday night. The owner of our gym partnered with another woman to bring this beer bar to the 7th Street Public Market. It features 12 taps with NC beer as well as bottles, cans and growler refills. I am stoked about this because a) the owner of Metro is behind it, b) I love female-owned small businesses and c) a female-owned BEER bar? That’s just awesome!



Really productive and exciting dinner meeting featuring a medium rare steak? That’s my kind of meeting! πŸ™‚


Still so thrilled to be working with the Charlotte Observer and OrthoCarolina on Run Charlotte Run.
