Where there is space, you can deepen your purpose and intention by aligning your actions with your core values.
Here you will find my workbooks to support pause and reflection as well as other tools and activities that support planning, movement, and mindfulness.
Find Your Word Workbook
A simple tool to shift your mindset towards your goals in 2023.
Whether or not the One Word Tool or One Word Practice is familiar to you, you will find value in this simple and practical approach to finding your word for 2023.
In 45-55 minutes, walk through three exercises to brainstorm words. In one exercise you will reflect back, in another, you will have word play, and in the final exercise you will look at what's ahead. Then, you will narrow your focus and stress test the word that will move you throughout the year to leverage all your energies to move your vision into success stories you can see, hear, smell, taste, or touch. Feel free to share your word with me when you are done!
life intention action Reflection Workbook
If you are familiar with kaizen, agile principles, or design thinking, then this elevated journal practice can support you in spotting trends and outline incremental improvements for your own personal journey.
Updated for 2023, this workbook will introduce you to a pause and reflection practice that allows you to iterate life's opportunities and challenges into continuous learning moments enabling a growth mindset.
Life's Blueprint To Actions List
Only a few left!
After you design your roadmap for life, how do you make sure you take action?
Maybe this little notepad can help! In each circle, list what's meaningful with one action you will do that day to bring it to life in a way you can see, hear, smell, taste, or touch.
During the COVID 19 lockdown, I was having a challenging time in keeping up with my movement goals. Without in-person races and open studios/gyms, the energy to move was diverted to other things (hello! remote learning and remote work) and I quickly lost momentum around my physical vitality.
A silver lining of that time was discovering Run She Is Beautiful who launched the Sweat Growth Gratitude Mileage Club. This supportive space supports women around their movement goals. Whether it is related to running, biking, walking, or how many times you move your body, you get the power to decide what that movement goal is in 2023.
With this supportive space that has encouraging messages, inspirational gear, webinars, and in-person events, this is a great accountability system and tool to keep you moving over the course of the year.
If you are looking for a mileage club, I invite you to try this out.

SGG Mileage Club 2023 with Your Coach elaine
I am moving onto my race #2 of seven to complete the Brazen Racing Ultra Half Series in this season. Although I have streaked three times, I still haven't done enough Ultra Half Marathons for that Ram's Head Coaster. If you are looking for an East Bay Trail Half Marathon (or 10K, 5K), then check out Badger Cove in Del Valle Regional Park, Livermore.
If you are looking to get your run on with a bang load of green, fresh air, a chance to stretch your legs, and be in good company, then try this race out.

It's been awhile since Team Donkey Booty did a race in a new venue -- the last time we did something outside of Brazen Racing and other local racing organizations was See Jane Run's 5K in Alameda in 2017.
We are venturing out into Napa Valley by attending the Napa Valley Women's Half and 5K. It's been said that if you find the right accommodations, you step right into the starting area of the race and by the time you finish, you will be treated with something special.
If you are looking for a women's run that has a short and long distance and also an option for strollers, then this might be the race for you!
