Sending our love

What a week it’s been. Our hearts go out to our community and all those affected by Harvey, by the earthquake, and those who are anticipating Irma. Please stay safe, and if you’re able, please help in any way you can: by donating, volunteering, offering shelter, and more.

I’ll confess, sometimes it feels frivolous to be writing about fitness when our friends in Houston, Florida, the Caribbean, and Mexico are contending with a firehose of natural disasters that just won’t quit.

I was chatting about that disconnect with a friend yesterday—about how it feels hard to focus on work when there is so much happening out there—and she said, I hear you, but exercise is also the best way for me to recalibrate and bring more energy to lending a hand to those in need. It’s essential.

She’s right, of course. Putting our lives on hold does Harvey and Irma’s victims no good. Taking care of ourselves is essential for taking care of others, in whatever capacity we’re able to. And connecting with the community is a bright spot in a week full of devastating news.

Here’s what’s keeping our hearts full and our bodies moving this week: 

Happy Friday, friends! Wishing you all a safe, dry, and healthy weekend.

    Keeping Harvey, Irma, and fire victims in my thoughts! Whenever crisis strikes, it can be completely overwhelming and leave you feeling helpless. Sometimes the simplest things are the best: sending love, helping when/where/how you can, and continuing to live every day to the fullest!
