This past weekend I flew to Houston, the city where I lived for a good part of my childhood. I don't go back to Houston often with my crazy schedule, but really glad I made this work. Let's face it, Houston is not known for the beauty or great weather. I will say Houston has some of the greatest and warmest people I've had the privilege to meet in my life. The few days I was there just wasn't long enough. Next time I'll have to go back for longer. I was lucky enough to arrange a unique Women's kettlebell and Self Defense workshop with Jay Armstrong. Jay is an incredible person, athlete and teacher. I really enjoyed learning from him as well. We had a great intimate group and it was a very productive day! There were some very inspiring ladies there and it was a pleasure to meet each and every one of them.
