So there’s been a lot of talk on my blog and my friends’ blogs about the benefits (or not) of yoga for runners. I believe in them 100%–as long as you’re not trying to “compete” at yoga, you’ll feel lighter, looser, and more focused for your runs. It has also helped me breathe better. I could go on and on, and I probably will at some point, but I wanted to let you all know about a fabulous yoga event that benefits my A#1 favorite charity, Calvary Women’s Services.
I’m stealing this directly from Calvary’s Facebook page:
Calling all yogis (beginners to advanced)! Join volunteers, supporters, and other friends of Calvary for an all-levels yoga class to benefit Calvary. THIS SATURDAY 7/17 from 10:15 to 11:45 AM at Stroga in Adams Morgan. It’s a “pay what you can” class – all proceeds will directly support Calvary’s programs. For more information, visit Stroga’s website or contact Calvary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve been volunteering with Calvary for years. They are a long-term homeless shelter for women, and they do amazing work. When I qualify for Boston, I’m going to make my run there extra special by raising money for Calvary. So please, come out and join us. I’ll be there, Wes doesn’t know it yet, but he’ll probably be there, and anyone who runs with me on Saturday morning will have their ear talked off until they agree to be there too.
Maybe I should mention that Stroga is an absolutely gorgeous studio in Adams Morgan. And we can go to brunch afterwards. Sold yet?
