public displays of crossfittery

soooo, tomorrow is the 4th Annual DogTown CrossFit CrushCancer workout/health expo in downtown Culver Citeh! (9300 culver blvd, the big parking lot next to the Culver Hotel and across the street from Trader Joe's).

i am in the 11:05am heat. and for your viewing pleasure, we will do a 3 round AMRAP across 5 stations: power cleans, kettlebell swings, burpees, shoulder to overhead & double unders (well, that last bit is not entirely true; i won't be doing double unders ... a few struggle unders and mostly singles).
thank you thank you thank you times a billion for everyone who has made donations of moolah & good vibes. i FEEL you! every cent we raise for this event goes to research & patient support.

Crush Cancer will also take place on Saturday (10/18) in Miami & New York. lotsa great energy, good times & swolesomeness!

the event will run until about 4:30 ... but i will dash off to yoga teacher training as soon as my round is finished. i encourage you to swing by anytime you can make it!

deep, heartfelt gratitude for your patience while i am away from the studio for vinyasa teacher training & CrushCancer ... i will return on Monday, October 20 ... see you then!!!

i am taking October 10 thru October 19 
away from be well {groomed!} & Studio 41

i'll be back slinging the sugar around on Monday, October 20 (though that evening is currently booked up). 

i'm taking a 200-hour vinyasa teacher training with the fabulous Liz Arch at my favorite place to Om, Red Diamond Yoga.

i'm a lot excited and a little nervous, unsure what to expect. the support of my family, friends & clients has been amazing.  i look forward to sharing the journey with you all.

Standing Up, Standing Together, Giving Back

Hey y’all, you know what? Cancer sucks. It sucks hard.

Here’s another c-word; one I like even better: Community.

Community is our support group. Our sounding board. Our shoulder to cry on and our source of inspiration. It’s the team that helps pick up the pieces of shattered hearts when grief and destruction come calling.

Last year I suffered a devastating loss. Trent leaving my world too soon broke me open in a way I still don’t understand. In my blind hurt & rage, I somehow knew that I needed to burn off some major steam and pump blood through my aching heart. Thanks to the recommendation of a good friend, I found DogTown Crossfit. The communion of sweat, barbells and laughter has done much to help me through some of the darkest times of my life. Healing happened.

And, as members of communities do, I’m now taking the time to pitch in on their efforts to raise funds to Crush Cancer, part of StandUp to Cancer. Stand Up To Cancer is a groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.

CrushCancer, in it’s 4th year, will have two events: Miami on 9/27 & awesomesauce Culver City on 10/18. None of the funds raised at CrushCancer are used for administrative support; 100% of the funds we raise go to research and patient support. <---- and="" br="" cool="" is="" this="" very="">
I’ve set a goal to raise at least $1,000. In old math, that breaks down into 100 people donating just $10 each. Or, howsabout 10 people donating $100? Yeah, that works too!

If you’re in LA, hotfoot it over to downtown Culver City on 10/18 and watch a big ol’ group of us sweat ... with weights ... and jump ropes ... outdoors ... in the sun ... what could be more fun!

I know you’re gonna wanna donate because once you do, you’ll be on the list for a picture of me AFTER the workout ... nice, right? The person who donates the most money will get a special package containing my sweaty headband worn during the event (I’ll be sure to preserve it specially for you!).

But seriously, it’s a fantastic cause so open your wallets at a level that’s comfortable and join our community (click on this link).
In honor of those friends & family who've lived through cancer, and in memoriam of those who did not:  Let’s f*cking CrushCancer!
