Blend 2013 Recap {Let Me Explain}

Hi friends! I think I owe you all some pretty amazing recaps (race recap coming soon), but first let’s chat a little about the AMAZING BLEND RETREAT that I went to a last week!

What’s Blend?

It’s where you meet life long soul sisters randomly at the airport and realize you were meant for each other. Utah BOUND!


You try out NEW CRAZY FUN Workouts like GPP Fitness! I am hooked! I am pretty sure I will be opening one in SO CAL!


It’s where you feel BEYOND overwhelmed by some pretty amazing sponsors who want to spoil you with fun new products: Chobani, Vega, The Good Bean, Plant Fusion, Erwhon, Pop Chips and the list just goes on!!!


It where you get to get-way with girl friends and are in aww at your view out the window every morning.  Hello Hyatt Smile


It’s where you get to eat all kinds of CLEAN eats! Fresh veggies, spring rolls, and so much more thanks to Silk!


It’s where you get fancy for about 2 minutes and realize you weren’t that original Winking smile


It’s where you finally meet women that you have admired in the blog world for years!


you meet your hero’s!




Run 9.5 miles in the rain with other crazy runners just like you!!



and just when you think there is no way we could be showered with more gifts, three nice men come and deliver more fun goodies to your room!


and then you shower up and do something that pushes you out of your comfort zone! ZUMBA!


With the beautiful Fitness Perks!


and take wonderful trips to Lululemon and turn friends into believers!


It’s where the wine flows more then the water.


and the food is so good you just can’t handle it!



It’s where you meet passionate women who you could sit and talk to for hours!—>Living Proof Gear OWNER!


It’s where you pretty much live in your workout clothes (wait I already always do).


It’s where you smile when you are doing 1,000 burpees, squats, pushups, and kartwheels!!!!



It’s where you get to ENJOY A REAL breakfast, filled with egg white omelets, Chobani pancakes, peanut butter banana smoothies!!


It’s where friends SUPPORT YOU!


It’s where you travel to new spaces and places that you would have never seen!



And you try out the best of the best margs!


oh and shrimp ceviche!


Blend is a place where you just have to make time to get away and look forward to each and every year!
