When I created my Conservation Hero WODs in 2017, I wanted a special workout dedicated to zoos in general. Zoos are great conservation organizations which work to protect and preserve the environment and animals on three separate fronts.
I’m reading a fun children’s series called Spirit Animals. It’s about children summoning these amazing animals as companions, and the adventures they share together. As far as fun and entertaining reading goes, it’s a good series. But it definitely got me thinking. What is my Spirit Animal?

I started a running club this summer. I know, shocker! The girl who hates running, and avoids it at all costs just admitted to creating a running club. But wait. You didn’t hear the name of our running group. We call ourselves the Sloth Army. And in the past few weeks, I’ve learned there are some valuable lessons one can learn about health and fitness from a sloth. Read More “Lessons from a Sloth”
