Then, I was challenged to write a manifesto for my business and well, I think this sums up Holistically Hot perfectly. 

What do you think? Are you Holistically Hot?

“Running a marathon is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.” As I pushed through 26.2 miles of the TCS New York City Marathon, those words rang true for me just as they did 6 years earlier when I ran my first New York City Marathon in 2008.  In case you were wondering, waiting 6 […]

Last weekend was my longest long run during my training for the TCS NYC Marathon.  That 20 miler haunted me for most of my training.   As much as I wanted to look forward to it and be excited about it, I was too scared. Scared of what? I have no idea. Running 20 miles is daunting […]
