This Push Animal is back—and so is the URL.
I took it and myself offline for about a month because it’s been absolutely bananas over here. Big life changes are in the works, which make me super scared and thrilled all at once. I need change, and I need it now. (Keep reading for more on that.)
But we are back! And I’m pumped because Fridays are Push Picks days. If you’re an OG, and you remember Lindsay Lately posts from my previous blog, this is similar. Push Picks posts are filled with cool articles, podcasts, videos, and some life updates.
Clip in and let’s get going.
These are never not my favorite. I’ve taken some time off the bike in the past couple weeks because, physically, I could really feel the miles breaking me down. But long weekend rides are still happening, and they’re always better with a big group and coffee afterwards.
RICH ROLL PODCAST: ÖTILLÖ
I love this guy. If you haven’t heard of him, go check yourself, then get back here and listen to his and Chris Hauth’s recap of the ÖTILLÖ race. They’re animals, both of them. This infamous run-swim-repeat-over-and-over race is a feat and their journey to it and through it shook me up real good.
I got off the bike the past few weeks, and back into my running shoes. After work when the sun goes down and the temperatures drop just a little bit…there’s nothing better. I’m going to miss this place. (More on that below.)
They’re back, my peeps. You know some Internet troll is going to suck the fun out of them just like last year’s Christmas cups, but I’m enjoying them.
BREAKING 2 DOCUMENTARY
You want to talk about ANIMALS? The Breaking 2 Project was one of the most amazing things I’ve seen in sports, and the documentary was a work of art. The last five minutes had me in tears. Has anyone else watched it?
Is this a yearly thing by Sports Illustrated? It’s the first year I’ve seen it, and it is truly amazing what the human body can do. Also, most of these athletes are genetic freaks and I am 100% jealous.
BALANCED BITES PODCAST EPISODES WITH DR. LINDSEY MATTHEWS
I’m super into women’s health lately. Should’ve warned you about that left turn. I don’t know why, but the entire field is fascinating to me. These two episodes are all about BIRTHFIT, a program to help expecting moms get in the right mindset and take charge of their bodies as they get ready for birth. I’m not a mom, not expecting, and not even close to having a family…but here we are. Episode one. Episode two.
NEW ROAD CYCLING SHOES VIA BICYCLING
These belong in a damn museum. I mean, the Rapha Climber’s Shoe? Get outta here.
HOT ONES ON FIRST WE FEAST
I discovered this series on Youtube a couple weeks ago called Hot Ones. The host, Sean Evans, interviews high-profile athletes, actors, musicians, comedians and more while they both eat insanely hot wings that get hotter as the interview progresses. The best one is Kevin Hart’s episode. I’ve watched it a couple times.
While I have been absent for a bit on the blog, I haven’t stopped writing. It’s an outlet as I’m still working through a really hard breakup and big life changes. Here’s one.
I AM MOVING!
OMG. It’s true. I quit my job. And I’m moving out west. Details are up in the air (read: terrifying) but so are the possibilities (read: exciting). My plan is more of a loose outline at this point, but I’m already happier thinking about the future, and that’s the road I hoped I’d be heading down.
Keep following along for more.
Push on, PUSH ANIMALS >>>
