This week’s episode of the podcast we jump into new territory for many in the world of sports. A very old sport it making a resurgence these days which has people swinging swords and gearing up in chain metal armor. That sport is Medieval Armored Combat. Hannah Hudson joins the show this week to talk about what Medieval Armored Combat is as well as how this librarian got into such a unique sport. She is one of the few women in the sport today and owes it all to the CrossFit Games.

She also talks about how her love for fantasy, superheroes, and more prompted her to start a new fitness movement in Salt Lake City called The Refinery which incorporates fitness and fantasy making for a unique exercise experience open for all promoting a body positive space.

    • I felt like an addict on the trails this morning when we encountered tons of thimble berries. I could not stop eating them!
::
They look kinda like raspberries at first glance. For years we saw them on the trails and recently Forest learned what they were and that in fact they are edible.
::
It’s fun to combine trail running, foraging, some off trail exploring, and a little sun time all in one adventure with the family.

    • It doesn’t get much better then from forest gathering to dessert in a matter of hours.
::
I spend a lot of time thinking about exercise vs life and how to incorporate the two into one stacked activity.
::
This weekend was the perfect real world example - during our run/hike we stopped and took an hour to gather huckleberries. The movement of Berry picking worked a number of muscles and gave us food for dessert.
::
When life and workouts mesh into one.
