Re-Prioritizing: March Training Recap

March was a big month. The first weekend I was supposed to be running the One City Marathon and I could not be more thankful I pushed my race date back – although I was feeling strong after several HIIT classes at various gyms, my running time was not where I would want it to be. My first big run…

March Inspiration: A Basic Guide to Reiki & Chakras

Earlier this month, I was listening to the Almost 30 Podcast (as usual) on my drive to work and this episode hit me so hard, I literally ended up in tears (right around the 45th minute – I legit thought she was talking about me and not her friend) and then I headed straight to Google to do some more…

The Basics of CBD Products

I first stumbled upon CBD oil while listening to my favorite, Almost 30 Podcast over the summer (however, I know they just released a series of CBD-focused episodes this week so I’m excited they’re diving a little deeper into the topic).

A Year of Constantly on the Run

It’s hard to believe it’s been 365 days since I launched Constantly | A Blog for the Girl on the Run. On the flip side, I can’t believe it’s only been 365 days – so much has happened in such a short period of time. When I launched Constantly, I had no idea what I was doing (TBH I still…

Your Mindset is Everything: February Training Recap

February. The quickest month in the year but also kind of a weird one because sometimes it’s cold (sup Groundhog predicting 6 more weeks of winter) but other times it’s like “psych! It’s 65 degrees and I’m going to tease the sh!t out of you but go right back to snowing the next day.” True life: Chicago weather is bi-polar.…

A Review: Team Salute Charity Class at CTF

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of hosting a charity class at CrossTown Fitness in Lakeview! With three locations across the Chicagoland area (West Loop, Lakeview – obv, and their newest location – Roscoe Village), CTF provides everything one could need from strength training to cardio to recovery. And this charity class was no exception. Trainer (and friend from…
