An emerging health trend called Cryotherapy has made its way to Kansas City. I first heard about the new three-minute chilling treatment a few months back via other fitness bloggers in the Los Angeles area. Fellow ClassPass members get to enjoy Cryotherapy sessions via ClassPass at Cold and Thirsty. While that luxury is not available yet in KC, people can visit Cryo Salon in Overland Park to get their freeze on.
My first charity workout event in February was a hit. It wasn’t so scary after all. The event sold out in a few hours and we ended up raising over $800 for the kiddos. I spent my first year blogging and networking with studio/gym owners and fitness minded people. My 2016 goal is to use those new relationships to host fitness events and give back to the community.

After much deliberation, I decided to give Rock the Parkway another go. It seemed fitting that this would be number 12 because the last time I ran this race it was number 2. They’ve opened the race up to a lot more participants so on Monday, I went ahead and registered. (In years past, it has sold out.) It is one of the larger half marathons in Kansas City and the crowd is always outstanding.
