I had another article I wrote to share this week, and I’m still posting it today. But after last night’s presidential election results, which were devastating to myself and so many people I know, I had to address it here and now.
Dearest friends and fellow “woke” folks: We have a big problem. And (as gently and as kindly as I can), I must tell you that we are a part of that problem.
Though our society says that no crime should go unpunished, that when we make our bed, we must then lie in it, and that strength comes from “sucking it up, buttercup,” I’m going to advocate for something radical:
Self-blame stops us from taking responsibility for our actions.
This idea seemed crazy to me as recently as 6 months ago. At that time, I was all about the self-blame.
“It’s been a long time.
We shouldn’t have left you
without a dope beat to step to.”

I’m thrilled to share that I’m relaunching this blog with a renewed purpose, mission, and all-new content.
While this blog has been an aspiration and a yearning of mine for at least 5 years, I was never quite able to find my own voice with it. Something in me was holding back, was confused about exactly what to write, and couldn’t pick the right words. It was frustrating, because I knew there was something I really, really wanted to share with you, to express.
I’m coming back to this blog after a long pause. During that time, I kept intending to redesign and repurpose it, until I realized:
a) that would take too long, and
b) I’d rather not let an outdated design stop me from writing.
Going forward, I plan to write less from the standpoint of a coach, and more about my own personal journey towards unconditional love. I hope that openly sharing my authentic journey and my learnings along the way will help others as much as it will help me. xo
I didn’t sleep well last night.
Awaking in the wee hours of the morning, I became caught in a storm of worries about my business, CrossFit Kindred. Little nagging what-ifs and gotta-dos, insignificant specks filling up my mind until I was drowning in quicksand.
Hello, lovelies! Wow–hard to believe I’ve been absent from my blog for an entire month! So much has been happening with my coaching, CrossFit, and life–and I can’t wait to share all my learnings with you.
First, a few updates:
A couple months ago, some friends and acquaintances of mine in the CrossFit community launched Tabata Times, a new online media resource for people into CrossFit and fitness in general. Its readership is already growing, and I’ve had the privilege of writing 2 articles for them, the second of which was published just last week.
