Happy Anniversary B&B!

Life is about taking chances – chances that force you so far out of your comfort zone. IMG_9086

It’s our 1st Anniversary!

When we took the leap of faith to launch Burpees & Bordeaux a year ago we didn’t know where it would go. We knew we wanted to share our journeys – the highs and the lows, we wanted to share solid research backed information, and we wanted to share our love for fitness (and wine). Little did we know we would connect with some of the most bad-ass women in the industry, grow not only as friends but also fitness professionals, and also expose our most vulnerable selves. We are so grateful for each and every one of you who read our blog and support us in our journey. A special shout out to our friends, our families, and significant others who support us day in and day out! Thank you to our friends at lululemon RF for letting us reach more individuals and all of the Tone It Up- Long Island girls who always come out to support us.

We love you all and can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for us!

P: bRUNching is One of my Favorite Hobbies!

bRUNch (noun) – an exciting day dedicated to getting your sweat on in the morning via a race of a designated distance and then celebrating with margaritas and tortilla chips.

Honestly, every race should be followed up with a group of your best girlfriends, unlimited drinks, and a kick ass menu. This past Saturday was my first bRUNch of the season with my Tone It Up sisters. The weather was beautiful and the day was a success.

The morning was flawless. I woke up at 8, I was picked up at 8:45, the race started at 9:30, and brunch kicked off at 12. It was like clockwork. In the middle of the all of that I also ran a pretty kick ass 4 mile run. Due to an unforeseen illness that knocked me out for a week and resulted in my having to jog my half marathon the weekend prior, I wanted to test the waters. I still had a nagging cough but I had a game plan and a lot of determination.

Game Plan: I wanted to run the first 3 miles at a 7:45 pace and then just kick it in and see what happens. My first 3 miles were 7:44, 7:45, and 7:45. At that point I knew it was time to get to work. The last mile I wanted to chase down as many people as possible (one person in particular who I knew was ahead of me) so I got to work. It was uncomfortable and I was definitely at an effort level 10 when I got to the finish line but it felt good. I finished with a time of 30:42 for a pace of 7:38 miles. Not a PR by any means, but the best outcome I could have wanted. I was also able to snag 3rd place for my age group so I took home a shiny bronze medal. I love adding some hardware to my wall.

Then it was off for a quick change and brunch. I partook in a few too many margaritas but I balanced it off with a delicious chicken sandwich at one of my favorite restaurants in Long Beach, the Cabana.

 

Where are your favorite places to brunch?
