Vans US Open of Surfing with Michelob ULTRA

This past weekend, I was flown out to California with the Michelob ULTRA ambassador crew to attend events at the Vans US Open of Surfing 2017! We got to take surf lessons, hung out at the ULTRA Surf Deck, did yoga on the beach, and then cooled down with some beers at happy hour!

Bright and early on Saturday morning, we headed straight to Huntington Beach for some surfing. It was my very first time, but the instructors were so helpful! I caught a few waves before I was too beat up to continue haha.

Afterward, we showered and got ready for lunch at the Vans US Open of Surfing. The ULTRA Surf Deck looked out over all the festivities on the beach. It was perfect weather to drink and mingle. 

I loved that there was a fun Fit Crawl in front of our deck! A few of the ambassadors even showed off their athletic prowess!

As the sun started to set, we got ready for yoga! I definitely needed the stretching after an eventful day. Even though the beach was crowded, it felt so peaceful to be in the warmth and sand.

Afterward, we headed to Sandy's for happy hour with Michelob ULTRA's and bites! I'm so thankful to have spent my weekend at the beach with some of the best people! 

Michelob ULTRA Live ULTRA Kickoff in NYC!

As many of you may know, I'm officially a Michelob ULTRA ambassador! I'm so excited because I truly value a balanced lifestyle when it comes to staying fit and having fun, and the Michelob ULTRA brand perfectly embodies that. As an ambassador, I'll be partnering with them to bring fun fitness events, happy hours, and workout challenges to you! To start, check out this summer's Live ULTRA Series - exclusive fitness events throughout the country with food, music, and beer! And stay tuned because I will be leading one of the future events! 

As for the rest of this blog post - I want to recap last week's Live ULTRA kickoff event in New York City! 

I flew in late Wednesday night and got a warm Michelob welcome with a 6-pack of beer and a schedule of the next day's events. Unfortunately, I had to do some work in the morning, so I couldn't attend SoulCycle with everyone. But I DID take advantage of a weekday morning in New York, woke up early, and got a cup of cappuccino at La Colombe to start off my day.

I worked until it was time to for lunch with the rest of the ambassadors. We had some amazing food at Maman Tribeca, which is a super cute place I've been wanting to try! 

We had chicken caesar salad, quinoa salad, roasted zucchini, ricotta, and kale quiche, and avocado toast. And for dessert: homemade oreos, nutella beignet, and fresh fruit skewers! It was so great meeting all of the other ambassadors for the first time and also seeing Jera again, who I had the pleasure of meeting when I last visited NYC in December!

After lunch, we went our separate ways until it was time for the kickoff event! In a few hours, we walked over to Spring Studios for some fitness and happy hour.

Mellie led the rooftop yoga workout while there was a plyometric circuit going on downstairs. It was super chilly on the rooftop, but a great workout is always worth it!

Afterward, we were all served Michelob ULTRA and light bites! It was a beautiful and fun day!

And of course, I couldn't be happier to share these moments with my Dallas fitness partner Mai Lyn!

Until next time, beautiful NYC...
