Of all the workout accessories I have purchased Goodr Sunglasses have been my favorite. I found out about them when I was at my local running shop – Charm City Run. I am a sucker for a good pair of sunglasses and I saw these on the counter while I was buying my running shoes. I convinced myself at the time that I didn’t need another pair of sunglasses…but, then I went home and did a little research.
This past weekend I attended the Athleta Thrive Fit Fest in Harrisburg, PA. It was the first time I had ever been to a “fitness festival” but I have seen them popping up everywhere, so I decided to give one a try!
I had a great experience and got to try a lot of different workouts, products, and food that I normally wouldn’t have. The whole thing was a bit intense with back-to-back workouts scheduled, but you can pick and choose what you want to try. I, of course, wanted to try almost everything…and now I am super sore because of it! But damn if it wasn’t a great way to spend a day!
Let’s Getaway! Recently, I took a trip to a Getaway House – a tiny cabin outside of Washington D.C. Work had been crazy stressful and I just needed a few days to unwind and not worry about anything…and The Getaway House was just what I needed.
Now, let’s back up a couple of years to 2015. I read a story about a Harvard Business School student who decided to launch a business where tiny houses/cabins were rented for weekends out of the city. I was ready to sign up!
My family and I used to camp a lot when I was younger and I don’t do it nearly enough now. I thought the Getaway houses would be perfect! I don’t have to pack up the tent and bring all the equipment. I would just need to show up to my tiny cabin! Plus, I mean who doesn’t love the thought of a tiny cabin…I mean really!
The rub back in 2015 was that the cabins were only located outside of Boston. That is quite the commute for a weekend trip from Maryland. So, I continued to follow the company’s success and just hoped that they would spring up a little closer to home.
Then, finally this year I saw the news – Getaway was coming to Washington D.C.!!!! I knew there was a trip to the tiny cabins in my future it was just a matter of when!
So, since I have taken my trip I wanted to review the experience for you. Up front, I just want to say that it was 100% worth it and I plan to go again ASAP 🙂
