I wanted to tell y'all a little about the yoga place I "go". It's not traditional yoga by a long stretch, but it is super fun, and active, which is definitely up my ally. Go is in quotes because my participation rate is about once every 3 months these days since it's about an hour drive and $19 for a group class.
A fun fact about Yoga Hop is that Reese Witherspoon likes to go! I've always liked Reese, she seems cool. Maybe sometime I'll run into her there, I'll invite her to coffee, and we can be best friends!

One thing that's really cool about Yoga Hop is the fun music that they play during the routines. Matthew Reyes, the instructor yesterday played some really cool mixes that combine two pop songs. For example, here's Jump (Van Halen) Vs. California Girls (Katy Perry). Pretty fun workout stuff! It's all available for free download on BootieLA's website (I think it's the site of a bunch of DJs?). Check out the video below, and if you like ridiculously hyper workout music, go get some more at the website!
After yoga, I hopped on other to the TriFit in Santa Monica to do a Luna Chix clinic with my friend Madeline. Madeline is one of the leaders in the local chapter...I'm not exactly sure what it entails besides organizing training stuff like runs / bikes / swims and getting a lot of free Luna Bars, but it sounds pretty fun!
Anyways, the clinic was fun...if you enjoy swimming. Me...I'm not so sure...too much water up my nose to love it =). I also felt bad, bc my skills in swimming in a straight line are not so good, which resulted in my kicking several people as they came back in the lane. Oops.
It was a humbling experience and the girls who organized it were great! Trying to learn how to bike and swim lately has certainly reminded me how UNCOORDINATED I really can be!
Here's what was super awesome though....FREE LUNA BARS at the end!!
Look at this swag.
One of the girls may or may not have made me a 'take home bag' containing at least 10 bars.
So for the Q and A....
Do you eat Luna Bars? If so, what flavor?
What's your single FAVORITE song to work out to?
Oh jeez this is a hard question. When I was young, I'd play Matchbox20's Push before every track race. I don't do that anymore though =).
