On Sunday, my friend and I headed into Brooklyn for the Wanderlust Festival. A “triathlon” of a 5k, yoga and meditation.
We found parking by Prospect Park and then headed to where the festival was located. It was about a mile long walk but totally worth it for just $10 parking!
After that we set up our yoga mats and checked our bags.
Then we walked around the booths and got a lot of free swag and did some shopping!
We bought $10 sweat pants from Spritual Gangster- such a good deal!
After that we headed to the 5k- which was actually 3.6 miles.
The run was hot but my legs/hip felt great. I haven’t run with a friend at all since my injury, so it was fun to catch up and run with a friend.

Then we grabbed our lunches that we ordered from Wanderlust. Next year I will just bring PB&J to save the $20.
Then we walked around a bit more and bought tanks and got some more free samples.
After we headed back to our mats for the yoga practice.
It was such a great practice and felt good after the 5k.
Afterwards they had the third part of the triathlon- meditation. While meditating, a protestor came walking through, which I have to admit was kind of scary. She was screaming about capitalism and as she was shouting, the woman leading the meditation asked us to send love her way and stay positive.
Meditating is super hard. It is hard to stay mindful and be present, but I would love to keep trying it. Even if its for a couple of minutes, I just felt like it brought me to such a great place.
It was a really fun day: running, yoga, meditating, free swag and shopping! What more could you ask for!
