We Are Back

Here we are. We are back. We are still Lowi & G but to be honest we are not the same. Yes, we are still full of sunshine and just the right amount of sarcasm. Yes, we are still sisters. And yes, we are still trying to figure out the absurdities of life. But we…

Time to Listen

We are not sharing any other blogs this week (or may be longer) as our voices are not the ones that need to be heard. Our white, female perspectives are not the ones that need representation. We strongly encourage you to begin to educate yourself (if you haven’t already), as we educate ourselves. Be respectful…

Wrapping Up Discomfort

  That’s a wrap on discomfort. We now return to your previously scheduled life… Okay, so while a lot of restrictions have eased and people are starting to dip their toes in the water of real life again, life is NOT back to normal.  We definitely are not back to our previously scheduled anything.  This…

Torture Report: Training in the Q

Oh the good old Torture Report. You know the situation is dire when we are in need of this level of public accountability. This formerly weekly check- in was created to keep Lowi and I (and a couple others) on task for my 40th birthday 50-miler in 2014. And then you all seemed to like…

Memorial Day

Today, we mark Memorial Day, maybe not in our usual way, but still holding space to remember those we’ve lost. We give thanks for their service and sacrifice. Sunshine & Sarcasm, Lowi & G

Acceptance

As is always the case, we talk about the things we ourselves are working through.  In fact, I heard Kyle Cease once say that we should pay attention to the advice we give others, it’s usually for ourselves. So with that all being said, this may just end up being for myself solely. This concept…

2020 Torture Report

Long time, no see, exercise enthusiasts.  G and I have decided that maybe it’s time to bring back some humor in what we used to refer to as the Torture Report.  Once upon a time, this is where we shared the drudgery, the emotional wrangling and the actual workouts we completed over the previous week….

The Basement

Discomfort.  Nobody wants to feel uncomfortable and yet it’s the only true place of growth.  Think about it.  We dread failure, the other shoe dropping, the pit;  the bottom or what I like to refer to as the basement.  However, once we land in the basement, there is a sense of freedom.  Hitting the bottom…

Lean In and Listen

We came rolling into May and I imagine when you read our first blog of the month and discovered we were delving into Being Uncomfortable, your first instinct was to run and hide. Your first instinct was to find something else, anything else, to read. Your desire was to feel anything but discomfort because hasn’t…
