20 minutes – Taking a Look Back

If you can believe it, we’ve already passed the 100th day of 2014! And that means there is only 1 week before the RoughFit Team, including myself, head out for Boston to run the Boston Marathon! I wouldn’t consider myself a marathon runner by any means, since Boston will only be my second marathon, and…

Adulthood and Cleanliness

It’s been a while, and I apologize, but I guess I just haven’t done anything inspiring the written word lately. 30 days has come and gone with the plastic and stretching, and I’m pleased to say that although I was not perfect, I’ve developed a few new thought processes and habits, especially when it comes…

30 Days of Change

Have you ever seen that show 30 days? I haven’t, haha, but I think I get the gist of it. Do something different on a daily basis for 30 days and see how it changes your life, your body or anything really. So I’m going to try this experiment. But I’m going to up the…

Olympic Moment

I’ve been waiting for my favorite Olympic moment to happen. And I finally found it. In an event that most people probably find boring, I was jumping up and down in anticipation and admittedly got a little misty eyed after it was all over. It was the Women’s Cross Country Ski Relay (4x5K). And I…

What is RoughFit?

It’s probably obvious, but I get asked, “What is RoughFit?” quite often. And to tell you the truth, it’s hard to describe. I have my typical answer. “We’re an outdoor fitness program in Tustin. We offer fitness classes that fits into almost any health and fitness goal people might have. We offer group classes that…

Stoke the Fire.

Last weekend I was in Red Rocks, NV for some climbing. I was also trying to meet up with my family for a last minute Vegas trip for my dad’s birthday. At first, I wasn’t sure if things would work out, but as the weekend approached, it seemed like I’d be able to do some…

Climb Time

Ok, it’s storytelling time. This Saturday, my friend Sam and I went for our first multi-pitch climb! For those of you unfamiliar with the terminology, a “pitch” is basically the vertical distance you can climb with 1 rope. Which means, if the wall you are trying to climb is longer than the length of your…

Winter Fever

The storm is clearing and the clouds are lifting. I don’t feel 100%, but I at least feel human again, and I have been able to take myself out of quarantine. I don’t know what kind of nasty virus my body was fighting, but 3 days with a 103 fever is what it took to…

A light to my path.

I had some pretty cool moments while leading last night’s run class. During this time of the year, the run is entirely without the light of day. The animals come out, the noises in the bushes startle you just a little bit more, and night vision is paramount if you don’t want to twist an…
