I always do a terrible job of getting in my running when I go to NYC because they have so many cool classes to attend! I only got 3 out of my 4 runs done for week 5. After running Falmouth and ramping up on classes while in NYC, I needed Friday as a full rest day so didn’t feel so bad skipping out on an easy 3 miler.
I have been running in the New Balance Minimus Zero shoes ever since I transitioned to minimalist running. I also have been lucky enough to run Ragnar Relay with New Balance last year as well as get some cool gear through Eliza (from Kick It By Eliza) since she is an official New Balance Ambassador.
When I saw that Falmouth Road Race was opening up for registration soon and was sponsored by New Balance, I thought it only made sense to see if I could run for them! I was able to secure a free bib (thanks New Balance!). I also thought it would be fun for Dave to run so I entered Dave into the lottery and he got in! #ClassPassChallenge Day 21 – Run New Balance Falmouth Road Race for the first time!

If you had asked me to go to a dance class a few years ago, I probably would have said a strong no. This changed once I got injured and started to be a little more open minded about experiences (and classes). I can’t remember what came first but between my friend Kristina introducing me to Hip Hop Dance Camp by Erica Bornstein and going to learn the Justin Bieber “Sorry” dance with my marketing team, I realized that it’s okay not to be perfect dancing and it is really fun! I may look like an awkward stiff, stick figure trying to move my body, but at least I was trying.
