Per usual, I found this teatox on Instagram via a few lifestyle bloggers that I follow. (I consider myself a tea connoisseur so you can imagine the excitement.) If juicing isn’t for you, this is a different way to detox. As with any detox, you should proceed with caution and do your research – not all are created equal!

I did this race last year and let me tell ya, they have the best post race #eeeats! RWTC is the major fundraiser for Queen of the Holy Rosary School. The race is part of the Heartland 39.3 series so 500+ usually run the half. The majority run the 5k. This race also has the cutest swag: tech shirt + medal. @QueenietheCow is the official race mascot. The race weekend forecast was nutty. At one point it said 100% severe weather. I prepared for the worst and had all my rain gear lined up and crossed my fingers it wouldn’t be rained out. Long story short, my “no rain” dance worked and we had a dry race.
I’ve seen pop-up yoga all over Instagram lately. I had serious FOMO when I saw my friends practicing at Nelson-Atkins on the lawn so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered Yoga Rocks the Park. These local events feature 75-minute outdoor yoga classes (beginners welcome) featuring Kansas City’s most inspiring local and national yoga teachers. All sessions are accompanied by a DJ or live music. Each event provides a unique opportunity to support local businesses within the KC community.
Yogis all over Instagram are using these little wheels so I immediately did some investigating. This original yoga wheel is a hand crafted back roller used to open the entire back + shoulders, align the spine, relax muscles, expand the chest and stretch hip flexors + quads. As a runner, I am super tight in all these areas (I don’t have a flexible back either) so I decided to order one of these bad boys. When they say hand crafted, they mean it. It took Dharma 5 weeks to create my wheel before it even shipped.
