I love to move! Be it zumba, bikram yoga, spin, cardio kickboxing, or elipticals, I adore it all! But my personal favorite exercise goes to running! It's my meditation, my me time, where I feel most alive. I like finding new limits to my physical self on long runs, testing my endurance and speed.

I think there is no better way to invite a human being to view their body differently than by inviting them to be an athlete, by revering one's body as an instrument rather than just an ornament. It's a really great way to reorient how you see your body so you can see it as this incredible, awe-inspiring machine that you need to fuel well in order for it to function.   -Alanis Morissette, Singer/Actress
