Meet Cara, Regional Manager for lululemon athletica in New York:
I am an athlete and I live for the endorphin high from a great sweat and workout. I'm also a food and wine ‘over-indulger’ (come on, isn’t that why we work and work out so hard?!). Here are the things I love:
Workout accessory: Garmin Forerunner 110. This magical watch tells me everything I need to know when working out.
Items to work out in:
Yoga move: Legs up the wall (Viparita Karani). I am constantly on the go and this helps me reset.
Place to run: My all time favourite place to run is along the coastline in Victoria, BC. This is where I really fell in love with running, and the thought of the fresh ocean air brings a smile to my face.
Current obsession: Shoes! I recently purchased the ‘Sissy Suede Sandal’ from Tory Burch and I also dream of the Swedish ‘Hasbeens’ high heel jodhpur: love, love, love!
Magazines: Vanity Fair, Vogue, Dwell, New York Magazine
Place: Fisher’s Loft in Port Rexton, NL, Canada. Breathtaking.
Restaurant: Neptune Oyster Bar in Boston, MA. Best lobster roll of all time.
Way to get motivated: When I look at the vision I have created for my life and think about what I am doing today to get there. I consider this my 'jump out of bed' factor.
Place to unroll yoga mat: On the fresh summer grass at Bryant Park with hundreds of other New Yorkers amongst the skyscrapers and craziness of all that life in New York brings.

Way to celebrate: I want to say red wine and dark chocolate, but that means I celebrate most evenings. Aside from my every day celebration, I would say I celebrate by going to dinner at a great restaurant with great friends.
Book: The Art of Racing in the Rain. If you love dogs or have a dog, after reading you will remain in constant wonder about why your dog has come into your life and what lessons they are here to teach you.
Inspired by: Greatness. I love watching athletes cross the finish line of a marathon or ironman because of what is involved in getting to that point.
