Big announcement from the Natori Family — Ken and I are running the 2014 New York City Marathon! November 2nd — just a little over one month away! We are both excited, nervous, energized, inspired, and motivated to run. After a full summer of runs out in the Pacific Northwest, we agreed that this was the year to do it. And…. the couples that run together, stay together! Inspired by Joanna, and her fight for life, we are running on behalf of Team In Training, a charity benefiting research for Leukemia and Lymphoma. We both feel moved and committed to run to raise money on behalf of the life and memory of our dear friend and family member. Joanna gave it all she got, enduring chemo, radiation, hospital life, isolation, pain, and discomfort. Running 26.2 miles is nothing in comparison. So we are doing this for Joanna.
Ginger is known to be a cure all. It is a magical little herb that does everything from easing nausea, to aiding digestion, to relieving cold and flu symptoms, to reducing inflammation. It is kind of like a fairy godmother’s wand. TADA POOF MAGIC! And the ginger powder from Wakaya Perfection is even more magical.
You know when you have one of those sleepless weekends? Raging with a 4 year-old-who-doesn’t-sleep? Welcome to my world. Thank you, Ali (Contributing Editor for this blog!), for saving my not-working-sleep-deprived-brain and writing today’s post.
Mandy Ingber is one of the most sought after yoga and fitness instructors in Los Angeles. Her philosophies draw people into her world, offering a plan for “healthier bodies and happier minds”. That’s right in my wheelhouse. A good-looking shell that’s undernourished spiritually and emotionally is not all that sexy.
