  • My Story: Solcana Athlete Garrett Hoffman

    My Story: Solcana Athlete Garrett Hoffman

    I was an athlete growing up – team sports mostly and I liked playing basketball and rugby. I was kinda good. It was kinda fun. But there was always crap that I didn’t care for. Drama with parents and coaches (like jfc), travel with rugby, competitions for positions — it’s like I wanted to get […]

    This month we have two magical unicorns as our Athletes Of the Month: Drew Stever and Alicia Tatley. Both of these two super humans started with us at the same time and came in excited to get to work. Since then they have become an integral part of our community, both jumping head-first into the […]

    My Story: Solcana Athlete Allyson Farrell

    I am a tall person. I have long limbs, and I am almost always taller than everyone around me. This has been my reality from a very young age. It’s not like I had a sudden growth spurt in middle school. I was the kid that couldn’t fit in the tiny chairs in kindergarten because […]

    My Story: Solcana Athlete Cindy Kuehl

    I have a very simple tattoo on my left wrist. It reads “Inspire” with an arrow to remind myself to keep moving forward; especially when moving feels impossible. I’m reminded of this as I think about the strength that Solcana has brought into my life – mentally and physically. When I think about it, my […]

    June Athletes of the Month

    Congratulations to our June Athletes of the Month, Alyssa Ahlgren and Shelley Quade! We are so thankful to have you both in our community.

    My Story: Solcana Athlete Shannon Bean

    “Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.” –JK Rowling The year I was 25 was quite literally the end of my life as I knew it.  That sounds hyperbolic, but it’s not.  Not long after my 25th birthday, my life began unraveling in ways I never could have imagined.  It […]

    My Story: Solcana Athlete Heather Hoagland

    I’ve been trying to think how my Solcana Story is different from so many other Solcana Stories I’ve read here. Haven’t come up with anything yet. I’m not a very athletic person. I hid in gym class, and shunned team sports all through, well, my whole life. (Love horseback riding, however!)  I don’t feel too […]

  • April Athletes of the Month

    April Athletes of the Month

    Congratulations to our April Athletes of the Month, Jeanne Schuld and Mary Souder! Jeanne Schuld is quiet, unassuming, and crushingly strong. She started at Solcana after relocating to Minneapolis from Rochester where she had been doing crossfit for a while. The first time I met her, she was the only person at my 5:30am class. […]

  • Winter is almost here!

    Winter is almost here!

    I was never one to get really jazzed about winter post-childhood. The first sign of fall began the internal struggle, oscillating between awe over the beauty of fall and the dread of the frigid winter months and things getting way too quiet. It wasn’t until I made myself take a running course in my junior year […]
