Hi Team BBP!
We hope you’re having an amazing summer! This summer has been filled with a LOT of sweat (hello humidity!!!) and we’ve spent a lot of time outdoors running, kayaking, at the beach – you name it.
We took a few trips upstate to go hiking and kayaking. A 12 dollar train ticket gets you out of the city and into nature in an hour! We hiked up a mountain called Anthony’s Nose in upstate New York and got a spectacular view of the entire Hudson Valley. Then we headed to Cold Spring, NY and rented out some kayaks at Hudson River Expeditions. We had so much fun we didn’t even realize we were also getting in a killer workout!
Lindsey is running the NYC Marathon this year (her first one!!) so she’s spent a lot of time working on her long runs. Amber is the ultimate best friend because she’s been running with her and riding a bike alongside her to keep her motivated! Talk about the ultimate hype girl, right!? The heat and the humidity has been KILLER this summer but all that hard work will pay off when the weather is cooler this fall. Make sure you’re following her marathon journey on her Instagram and send her some love.
Speaking of running, we’ve fully taken advantage of Summer Streets in NYC: 3 Saturdays in August when NYC opens nearly 7 miles of streets to the public completely car free! It was so cool to run through Grand Central, and all the way down to Brooklyn Bridge without having to worry about cabs and buses.
BONUS: We put together our favorite summer songs on a playlist for you to rock out to on your next run! Make sure you’re following Brave Body Project on Spotify! We’re always adding fun new playlists you can use during your workouts!
And to all our babes who sweat it out with us this past year at Solace NYC – we miss you! Our booties are NOT the same without our weekly sweat sessions! We have some fun events coming up in the fall and we promise you we’ll be sweating together again soon.
Wishing you a great rest of the summer Team BBP! We hope you get a chance to enjoy the rest of summer with friends and family. Be strong. Be inspired. Be BRAVE.
Amber + Lindsey
