I remember running my first (and so far only) timed 5K with the support of my son, Sean and my friend and trainer Nicole Kung. Desi Aldorando was there that day as well; she took the photo. Boxster was the artistic director. Remembering, I commit to running at least one more 5K by this time next year.
Traci Smith, author of Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home has provided a gift of the November 2018 Gratitude Every Day calendar. I am using it as an opportuity to revisit photos and post them as they speak to gratitude.
My friend, Nicole, of NK Body Philosophy has worked with a number of her colleagues to put together a fundraiser to support wildlife, particularly elephants.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Wildlife Friends Foundation in Thailand. The WFFT rescues and help wildlife and elephants in need, and supports conservation efforts of wildlife in Asia.
We are also excited to offer for sale beautiful handcrafted artwork, jewelry and ceramic collections from the hands of local artists in South Africa brought to you by The Curious Tour.
Wellness services offered: Massage therapy, reiki, sound healing, yoga, acupuncture, movement specialist, mediation, and more!
Hope to run into you at the event. You can make a contribution if you can’t attend.
See you along the Trail.
After a week away and a few days off due to laziness, I returned to the gym today.
I spent thirty minutes on the treadmill and did some core work.
Then I did an arms and legs workout with NK Body Philosophy. At some point during the evening ahead, I will stretch to March Madness.
Hopefully this marks the beginning of a routine.
Now if I could just do something to restrain my eating …
The workout schedule has been spotty. But today brought stretching and core work with NK Body Philosophy late this afternoon.
Additional stretching followed this evening. The effort continues.

NK Body Philosophy
The Gym at the Shire has been a recurring venue during the Until We Meet Again Tour. I have been one of the house bands. Nicole Kung, of NK Body Philosophy, was a featured artist during these gigs. Desi Aldarando, Grace Ji-Sun Kim, and Elisabeth Lee made guest appearances.
The final show at this favored venue took place this morning. And after the show, the entry fob was turned in. Self care will continue in other locations, but not at the Gym at the Shire, until we meet again.
An era came to a close. The Until We Meet Again Tour moved out of the Shire today. Tricia packed the final car load to take to Cleveland Heights via Richmond. I gathered up the items I will need for the next ten days or so and moved in with my friends Nicole and Desi and Boxster.
