Oh hey, Friday!  Here’s what we’re crushing on this week…

1. Brown & Co Designs :: Tanisha and I had such an amazing time at the brush lettering workshop this week!  We learned so much, and the beer definitely helped us let our guard down while we practiced a new skill 😉  Plus, there were cupcakes and lots of fun, new people to meet — best night ever?  We think YES.

Goblin Gallop 5K & 10K {Work It Wednesday}

What sounds better than getting a fun workout in, supporting a good cause, wearing your Halloween costume, and attending a big city celebration?  We think nothing — which is why this Work It Wednesday is all about the Triunfo YMCA Goblin Gallop taking place this Saturday in Westlake Village.

The Goblin Gallop is definitely going to be fun and entertaining, as well as a great workout! You can sign up for either the 5K or the 10K Run, as well as the 1 mile Trick or Treat Fun Run for kids (I mean, the running part cancels out the candy part, right?). …

Wanderlust Work-It-Wednesday {no excuses}

If I were to put a figure to it, I would say approximately 60-70{fd7f0a6624fbd2224f3c60e3404acbd2207eb416c38268e7e97265ebe361b912} of my vacation planning involves thinking about what kind of food I’m going to eat.  No, seriously.  When we went to N’Awlins last April, I literally had a checklist. #notkidding

It is so fun to splurge on vacation — but, you can still balance fitness on the road, too!  In fact, this is one of our most favorite travel tips to make you feel like a ‘local’: work it out.

Seriously!  Going on a run allows you to see neighborhoods and landmarks you might not have seen otherwise.  Ducking into a cycling …

Work-It-Wednesday: November Community Fitness Events {local fitness}

November is not only the month of leaves changing colors, fall weather and Thanksgiving– but it seems to also be the month of 5ks, 10ks, marathons and workout classes! Maybe it’s because we all know at the end of the month we will be eating a lot of turkey and stuffing (okay, and mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie…. and the list goes on).

But it’s so worth it! Especially when there’s so many different ways to get your Work-It-Wednesday on at all activity levels.

Whether you’re looking for a yoga class, your first 5k, or another marathon under your belt- the 805 definitely has what you …
