When you're feelin' a little fancy, here's a fresh twist on an old faithful!
What do you tell yourself everyday? What do you obsess over? What are you bad at? What do you need to get better at? What makes you feel inferior? The last two weeks have most definitely been a journey, some days easier than others. I didn’t go into the challenge with the expectation to have everything figured out by day 14 …
What I like about this challenge is that I forced myself to pick just one pattern to change, instead of trying to do all the things. Not every day is going to be perfect. Accepting this and knowing that change is difficult and intimidating is important. Choosing one small thing to make progress in and take action upon is one small step to something much larger in the grand scheme of life.
I’m beyond excited that we have the opportunity to take our commitment to service to the next level. The American Refugee Council, (ARC) who is headquartered right here in Minneapolis, has invited Fly Feet to travel to Uganda to help them build a running program for the refugee women and girls living in a remote refugee settlement called Nakivale Refugee Settlement.
Happy Mother’s Day party people! As a household with two working parents and three amazing kids, life can sometimes (like actually most of the time) seem like chaos. It’s a beautiful chaos that I’d never in a million years trade for anything. I remind myself that if this is my “burden”, I’m infinitely blessed. There is one question that helps me sort it out though …

If you're just showing up, it isn't enough. That is true with most things in life. Showing up is certainly the first step to something that you're chasing - getting the promotion, landing the gig, getting more fit. But after that, if you really want it, you have to be intentional and specific about your desired outcome.
Strength has always been a foundation in my training. During my hockey career it served a specific purpose, and now it serves a different, yet equally important purpose. Strength work compliments everything in life - how you stand, how you sit, how fast you can run, the structure and density of your bones, and most importantly how you feel. In May, we're taking it the next level, by expanding our programming in an effort to help each of you find even more of the success you have already experienced.
Inside and outside of Fly Feet, Geoff is one the hardest working people we know; His loyalty and dedication are unmatched. Almost every afternoon, Geoff walks in for class, coming from work. When he walks out at 5:30 or 6:30 pm, he’s dressed and ready to go back to work. And all of this is done with a huge smile.
As the weather starts to get warm, (?) we hear the question from our runners all the time. How do I incorporate Fly Feet workouts into my race training? The answer to the question is tricky because it’s going to look different for every single person based on experience, history of injuries, race goals, schedules, and the list could go on. However, there is a general outline that we support and have found huge amounts of success in following.
