It has taken some trial and error, and overcoming many fears to get to a point of being able to check off some major cycling bucket list items. I would love to share the things I have learned in my cycling journey so far and maybe open your eyes to a new hobby. You do not have to be an athlete, a bike expert, or really rich to start getting into cycling.

It’s Summertime, which means it’s pool time! One of my favorite things to do during summer is change my workout routine from running to swimming. I will say the first time I stepped into a pool as an adult, I had no idea what to do in terms of a workout. Swimming can be a little intimidating if you haven’t been in a pool for a while or if you never learned how to actually workout in a pool. So let me walk you though some swimming basics and get you into the pool for your first aquatics workout this summer! You will feel awesome afterwards, I promise!
