On Seeking Balance

“Balance” is one of those buzz words that we hear all the time in the health and fitness world.

Wedding Weekend #1 and Weekly Recap

I am calling this “wedding weekend #1” because I have two weddings this spring for friends I have known since Kindergarten.

Running, Sitting, and Low Back Pain {Guest Post}

Today I am sharing some words of wisdom from my chiropractor, Dr. Blake Kalkstein. I have been seeing Dr. Blake for about a year for adjustments, ART, and rehab exercises. If anyone in the northern Baltimore area is looking for a chiropractor I would definitely recommend him! They even take walk-ins so I can just […]
