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.

    • What do you know about curcumin? I was recently sent a sample from @vitacost
::
I wrote up a blog detailing some of the benefits that have been seen from curcumin for people in terms of inflammation and joint issues.
::
Like any supplement it’s good to do research and luckily I dig through a few scientific papers to help you make a decision if curcumin is a supplement you want to add to your diet.

    • Before the rain clouds rolled in... now that it’s springtime/nearly summer I try to work outside as much as possible.
::
I am super fortunate to be able to work from home. While it can be lonely at times and even isolating it also is a gift to make my workspace my own wherever I want it to be.
::
It’s so easy to forget the gifts we have when they become our norm. Sometimes I have to step back and realize how fortunate I am for the freedom.

    • I’ve been waiting for over a year for @michael.pollan new book to be released. I have been telling everyone I know that this book will be a game changer much like The Omnivore’s Dilemma.
::
100 pages in and I have wanted to cosmically hug Pollan so many times for brining this information and stories to light.
::
This book offers a profound insight into a world that many of us have experienced and not many can but the words to it.
::
Part historical, part first-hand experiences, and all with that famous Pollan storytelling flair.
::
Bravo Mr. Pollan and thank you 🙏
