After being injured for most of the fall, I was so excited to get back into working out this winter. I have my usual favorite workouts here in Madison (Dragonfly’s Power Up and Flyght), but I wanted to mix things up and try some new classes. ClassPass was doing a free month deal in January […]

Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women? I had absolutely no idea. I’ve never seen a woman have a heart attack in a movie. I was never taught about heart disease in health class. I’ve never really even thought about my heart health as a twenty-something woman. So, I […]

When I posted on Instagram last month that I was going back to therapy, I was totally blown away by the response – it was my most liked photo almost immediately and y’all shared such honest and insightful comments. So, I wanted to continue the conversation and share a little bit more about my journey […]

The last time I checked in on here about my marathon training I was just starting out and so excited about it, but a lot has changed since then! I still love running, I’m excited by the prospect of running a marathon, but unfortunately that won’t be happening this year. I made a promise to […]

Psychologists say that if a friendship lasts longer than 7 years it will last for a lifetime and I especially believe that if those years are in your 20’s. Priorities, personalities, and lifestyles all change so much in these years and it can be tough to navigate all of those changes and stay close. That’s […]

Guys! I’m finally doing it! I’ve been talking about running a marathon for years and I’m equal parts excited, terrified, and somehow already exhausted. This is a huge step for me on my running journey and I can’t wait to share all the ups and downs (oh so many downs lol) of my marathon training […]

Buckle up, y’all. This one’s a bumpy ride. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may already know that I got off birth control for the first time in almost 7 years in early February. I’ve read studies and listened to testimonials from other women that felt profound emotional differences after getting […]

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I’ve been dealing with some mental health stuff lately (I’m gonna share more a little while), so instead of dwelling on how awful all that shit’s been I wanted to share some fun, wonderful things that I’ve been up to. I was listening to […]

A few weeks ago, I hit a social media WALL. I woke up one day and had absolutely no interest in it anymore. I felt burnt out, uninspired, and totally drained by social. I understand where it came from: I was doing way too much at once. I was working overtime at my full time […]

I’ve talked a little bit on social media about applying for my PhD and, well, the results are in: I didn’t get into any of the PhD programs I applied for. And I’m like weirdly okay with it? Obviously, I’m bummed and it’s hard to hear that all the hard work I put in applying […]
