I caught some video of Kevin’s recovery day today. He keeps me motivated, keeps me inspired. A little maintenance and a little fitness at the same time...he just did this at a steady pace for like an hour. One time for the fit old man crew. @brattrains

A favorite picture reading to my son on his first day of preschool at three. We’ve always had so much fun together over books, something that has roots back when I was little. I was so lucky growing up, my older sister read to me constantly, all kinds of books, lots of Beverly Cleary, Mildred D. Taylor and Roald Dahl. It made me look forward to having a child to read to. Maybe because we started early, Asa has always enjoyed books and it’s been fun to see how that evolves over the years. Before he could even say more than a few words he’d bring book after book to me, sit in my lap and we’d read them together one after the other until we had a big stack of books next to us. I remember him sounding out his way through his first books on his own (sweet parenting moments!). I recall his excitement at checking out a library book for the first time. Now that he’s 11 he has his own books to read, and of course assigned school reading. We still enjoy books together, I’ll ask him to read aloud to me, or we’ll discuss the material he’s reading. We always have a book going together, we’ve gotten through so many of my childhood favorites, and ventured into books I probably would’ve never chosen in genres such as science fiction and Afro futurism. He also really likes historical fiction and biographies/autobiographies. Another wonderful part of parenting for me is letting myself expand based on Asa’s interests. ______________________________ Just using this to share, but I’d love to hear your favorite books from childhood or for children!

Being at your best requires more than hustling in the gym or at work every day— you also have to carve out time for self-care. Making time for my relationships and spending quality time with loved ones is a huge part of my self-care. Getting away from the gym, putting down the devices and really connecting is so rejuvenating and sometimes hard to fit in. Making sure I fit self-care into my schedule is another way I ! I’ve been inspired through my partnership with @jacklinksjerky to with their new Beef Steak Strips that are made with 100% beef. They’re super convenient when you’re on the go and keep me fueled throughout the day, just bring enough to share! How do you in your self-care practices? Tag me to let me know how you !

My first job out of graduate school was not a good fit for me. I spent six years trying to make it work, but it just wasn’t going to. Every day I spent there made me feel less and less like myself. I worked with some wonderful people who I looked forward to seeing everyday, but also within a culture that I found to be toxic, doing work that wasn’t meaningful. Coming from a hard working class background, even seeking meaning in my work feels like an immense privilege. ____________________________________ During the last year before leaving that position I had rekindled my love of fitness, started competing in CrossFit, and was blogging fairly regularly. I was reconnecting with activities that made me feel competent and capable. The responses I got to my writing made me feel like I had something to offer and that my voice, talents and experiences mattered and were worth sharing. The polar opposite of how I felt about my “real” work. When I was at work I didn’t talk much about my hobbies, but a number of my work friends knew what I was doing and were immensely supportive, one in a sort of peculiar way. Every day when I came in to work she’d ask me, “you’re still here?” I’m not sure how intentional she was about what she was doing, but simply posing the question planted the seed that something else is possible. You don’t have to stay in situations that aren’t working for you. What is doesn’t have to always be what is.

Happy Mother’s Day! ___________________________ We just watched the powerful scene in Roots when Cicely Tyson is going through labor with Maya Angelou attending her, so I’m feeling some type of way about how deep this motherhood work is.

I love the artistry of competition. The strongest and fittest person is not always the winner, there’s an X factor which is the skill of being a competitor. ____________________________ I won the Rope Climb/Sprint event at the 2014 Regionals, and I would put money on the fact that I didn’t have the best raw pulling strength in this field that included 5-6 CrossFit Games women. What I did have was the ability to take a body weight workout that wouldn’t usually advantage a heavier athlete and figure out how to apply my strengths. In this case it meant using my attributes (powerful hips, long arms), knowing what movement technique was most advantageous for the situation, and applying it. ____________________________ Just as the body needs to be trained and prepared, the skill of being a competitor also needs to be cultivated over time. It won’t just show up magically on game day. This can be accomplished not only through mental/thought exercises and practices, but through programming...both how it’s approached and how it’s written.

It takes work to feel good. Mental clarity, healthy joints, peace of mind, enough energy, etc. don’t magically appear. It takes effort to create the condition of feeling good, to identify what practices make these things happen for you and to implement them. Even with the effort, sometimes we don’t feel good, and that’s ok. When things are a struggle, don’t give up. Don’t chalk it up to ‘just the way things are.’ The way things are isn’t the way things have to be.

Drills, skills and strength building for rope climbs. The biggest key to being able to perform as many rope climbs as you like is to keep the arms extended and the biceps relaxed for as long as possible. Approach it as a leg & foot lock movement vs. a pulling movement. No matter how strong you are, applying good technique will always get you further than simply relying on strength! __________________________ The full version of this video is on our @13thflow YouTube channel. @brattrains
