I was struggling all week with how to put the Oakley Women’s Weekend of Performing Beautifully in Napa into words. Instead I just went through the motions of recapping it. It was an incredible way to relive the events and soak them in from my cozy bedroom. I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no word in the written English language that can fully describe my short time there.
I went to bed Sunday night a different person than when I woke up Friday morning.
The different events through out the weekend, the inspirational conversations, the beautiful empowering women all around us. I think we all went to sleep Sunday, slightly changed. Something big is out there for all of us. We are all going to amount to huge things, and I’m excited to know that every single time we meet up, we will all be so much further along in our journey.
Sunday, after a day of fun in the sun running, biking, and ‘tasting’ a loootttt of wine the day before – what better way to start up our Sunday mornings than with a Tone It Up bootycall?!
After a great workout and some delicious breakfast (soo much fresh fruit!!!) we were off to THE CULINARY INSTITUTE OF AMERICA!!!!!! Uh, my dream school. I wanted to go to CIA sooo badly, but it was just way too expensive. Sigh.
The campus is absolutely breathtaking. It looks like a giant castle. I still can’t get over its beauty.
Marni Stumble (tri coach & clinical dietitian) as well as the beautiful & talented Jenny Fletcher (model & Professional triathlete) gave an incredible Nutrition Class about fueling our bodies for our active lifestyles. It was a great session, honestly. Full of a ton of good insight. I was in heaven, seriously.
However the day had only just begun! We were off after the class for some hiking through St. Helena, followed by the CUTEST picnic at the head of the trail.
As the weekend kept progressing, I was growing more and more inspired as each conversation ticked on. A little idea was planted in my mind, and it’s been all I can think about ever since.
Thanks to the 100 strong, powerful women I met throughout the weekend, and more specifically the 9 other 2012 Oakley Women’s Ambassadors I have been home for under a week now, and am powering through writing my business plan, and getting things in motion. I’m really excited to share it all with you, but I’m keeping it under wraps for now.. Just until things solidify a little bit more!!!
I will say though, that it’s the perfect combination of all the things I’m passionate about. I can’t WAIT!
I want to take a moment to raise a glass. A glass to strong, powerful, beautiful, limitless women all across the globe. I’ve said it time & time again, and I mean it – Strong women are going to rule this world some day. We are capable of anything.
