Wild in the City

One of my favorite places to go for a run is less than a mile from my home in West Little Rock. You would think I have been transported out of the metropolis that is Little Rock into some kind of wilderness but no, parks like these are plentiful in my city. Arkansas is a beautiful place. They don’t call it “The Natural State” because of unshaven armpits.

This specific park is called Two Rivers. There are three fantastic pedestrian bridges that cross the Arkansas River in Little Rock, and this happens to be prettiest one with some of the most lush, resplendent trails. I mean just check out those trees. IMG_1836

Someone please remind me that I should probably use the restroom before I take my daily jog. I’m not sure if I ran down the trail or… danced. It was painful.

Despite my pain-induced choreography I managed to complete a slow jog. I’m not a fast person. I have tiny legs and sort of resemble an albino pygmy but I’ve been using a great app called Couch 2 5K that has been given me a pretty good workout. The app paces you so that you aren’t completely and suddenly overwhelmed with an intimidating workout that you couldn’t possibly finish. What did I do today? Well let’s check my Fitbit Versa.

Awwwww yeah.

But now comes the other (usually) painful part of my day: the aftermath. I’m in my thirties and am already suffering from joint pain so I’ve been taking this little product for the last couple of months. I cannot begin to tell you how much it has reduced my joint pain. It’s also fantastic for muscles, skin, hair, and most importantly our brain.

This is a totally grass fed, pasture raised product and is COMPLETELY tasteless. That means you can put it in your coffee or tea without tasting anything. It’s been a great addition to my bullet-proof coffee every morning.

Bullet Proof Coffee Recipe:

  • 8 oz of coffee
  • 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 Tablespoon of grassfed butter
  • 1 dash of cinnamon
  • 1 Scoop of Biooptimal Collagen Powder

Put it in the blender for a few seconds and it comes out like a lovely whipped latte. Great way to start your day!
