Cross Training, What?! What?!

So, we all know, when you are running and getting ready for OR are in-between road races, it is a good idea to switch-it-up. A little biking here, a few weights there, a huge dose of Turbo Fire, and a pinch of some new exciting activities to keep you motivated, fit, and not always using those same muscles over and over.
Staying along the lines of keeping my body fresh for upcoming events (and just for the pure fun of it!) I have revisited a(n) workout activity that I really enjoy. This activity scares me, excites me, and make my total body WORK! (you better work!)

Horseback Riding!

Horseback Riding!

I rode a little in college, then about 10 years ago I rode a little but just recently decided that I wanted to get back (A’HEM) “on the horse again”(sorry, there was no stopping me,I just had to say it!)

I ride at Great Scott Farms, Malvern PA, I was riding Nelly last evening and my Trainer is Emily! Emily is so great!!!

I feel so at ease, the most I ever have, and last night Emily said I had a really nice bit of a trot (so motivating!). Go me! Everyone at the Farm is so nice. Connor,the Manager and Head Trainer, and Lindsey, also an excellent Trainer, make everyone feel right at home; like you are one of the group, even me, with my half chaps on backwards and everything!
Please, check them out at http://www.greatscottfarm.com/ and their Trainers page http://www.greatscottfarm.com/Our-Staff.html.

If you are up for a ride, we can go together!

Is this how you do the photo shoot 'pose'? I think Nelly has other opinions about the matter...
