Coming Up, Wrapping Up – 2016

“I’m so excited. I’m so excited. I’m so…scared”

Whether you noticed or not, my interview series of awesome fit people on the blog has come to an end. From an author to a lover of blogs, dogs, and running, to a first-time half marathoner, an Ironman triathlete, and an Olympian, I got to share the stories of some pretty rad people. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!


I’m not this excited or scared – but don’t we all just love Jessie Spano on drugs?

Moving on, I’m very excited – and, if we’re being honest here, also very nervous – for a couple things coming up in life and on the blog.

As of November, I’m trying something kinda crazy…a great experiment if you will. That will be announced in a couple weeks so, as they say, stay tuned.

Something else that I’m pretty pumped about is what’s coming in December. I’ll be trying out a completely new workout – Orangetheory Fitness. A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet with the ladies behind OTF in Fargo. With scientifically-designed workouts and a built-in accountability format that deliver results, this very young company is booming and Fargo is the next stop on the roadmap.

In early December, before the club opens to the public, I’ll get a special sneak peek and chance to try the workout – which, full disclosure, I’m a little nervous is going to kick my ass. I run, I lift, I swim, I can pick up heavy things, and take the stairs everywhere I go. In short, I like to think I’m in pretty good shape. But bootcamp-style classes, rowing, target heart rates, high reps…it’s just all new to me.


Orangetheory Fitness. Let’s do this.

I plan to share the experience with my good friend and fellow fit gal, Mallory aka @KJSFitMomma. As with anything she and I do together, it will be a great, possibly hilarious, surely fun time.

It sounds really strange to be thinking ahead to wrapping up another year on the blog but it’s coming! Does anyone else have some cool stuff coming up for the res of the year? New races, new workouts, something totally random? Tell me about it in the comments.

Also, if you have anything you’d like know about Orangetheory Fitness or anything you’d like to see Mallory and me attempt during our workout (within reason ha ha!), comment below or tweet me, @runlikeagirl311.
