This Week: Nala Rae

Where do you consider “Home”? North East, Pennsylvania

What are your three favorite movement activities? Jumping to catch my ball, running with the hooman cousins, and protecting mine house from the stray cats!

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? The hoomans took me to some strange big house once. There were other hoomans and they threw some circle thing for me! There was another dog there too, but she was old and wasn’t happy about how fast I was! The only downside to this place was it took 4 hours to get there! That’s a lot of running for this metal thing we were in!

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Peanut butter on the bananas is the best!

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Peanut butter and those cold sweet potatoes! Thems are yummy in my furry tummy!

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? I’d love it if my hooman would let me run in the mountains, but she says we don’t have any that’s easy to get to.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? A leash really holds you back, somedays!

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? I once ran as fast as possible from a bee. I left my hooman because I was so scared. That was pretty crazy because I went to someone else’s door and I thought it was mine, until my hooman found me!

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? I love to bite frozen peanut butter out of my bone toy while the hooman does my hip therapies! Helps me to ignore her and I get food!

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) I had lots of fun working at this place my hooman’s dad kept calling Pet Supplies. I get to meet all the hoomans, while babysitting mine! She falls a lot, so I gots to be there to help her up or keep others away.

This Week: Hallie Buckel

Where do you consider “Home”? North East, Pennsylvania

What are your three favorite movement activities? Yoga, Walking with my dog, and Playing with my niece and nephew

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? I went on a trip to Carlsbad, California, a few years ago. I walked to the beach and back every morning. I am a photographer, so I would do photo shoots with my cousin and on our walks everyday I would go down trails we found and take photos of the wildlife there. I tried my best to do a workout every night I could, on the beach. I remember the sound of the waves and the dolphins in the water being so soothing as was doing my physical therapy.

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? My favorite post-workout snack is definitely my vegan strawberry banana smoothie.

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. My favorite thing to eat has to be vegetarian chili over pasta. It is not the healthiest thing, but it is so comforting to sit and eat with your family after a long day!

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? The one thing I pray I will get to do one day is go on a hike at Moraine Lake in Canada. The view is gorgeous, from what I’ve seen, and it would be an incredible moment.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? A lot of individuals struggle to move more because they can’t afford to go to the gym. They feel that without a gym they don’t have the resources to workout. What so many people don’t understand is if you have room to sit or lay on the floor, you are able to do so many things. I don’t go to the gym and I am able to do yoga every morning and night, and I manage to fit in my physical therapy during the afternoon. All is done in my yard or my bedroom floor. There are so many options that you can do to keep moving that don’t have to be done in a gym!

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? I once went on a hike through 16 mile crick, I did not hike the whole thing, and at the end of the hike I climbed an old bridge. My muscles were not happy with my climb at the end, but it was so fun!

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? The thing that feels amazing to recover after a hard day or a week of activities is a warm bath. Add in your favorite tunes and some essential oils and you’ve got the perfect relaxation time.

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) Every Summer my family and I usually go on a hike through Jake’s Rocks in Warren, Pa. There is a lookout with an amazing view of the Allegheny River and the large rocks throughout are so fun to climb!
