Hiking in Uganda to a mountaintop village. Studied sanitation there as part of an internship, 2010.
I've learned to love lifting weights this year!
The BEST co-workers anywhere :)

This year, my main goal is to push myself outside of my fitness comfort zone by doing more strength training.
-CrossFit 3-4 times per week
-Whatever else I feel like, depending on CF programming--usually running, interval training, or yoga.
I currently live in Cincinnati, but moved around and traveled a lot growing up. I still thrive on exploring new places every chance I get! I like to write, sing, dance, and cook with my friends. I have a bachelor's degree in health promotion and education, and love to help people reach their personal health goals.
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."-- Albert Einstein
"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."
--Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

Nice article about the 20-day fitness challenge! I'd love to join. Unfortunately, I didn't see a link to join in your article, and I wasn't able to find it when I did a search. Can you please provide a link to the challenge if you have it?
