today, our very own jane finished her first ever marathon!!! running 26.2 miles is something that takes both an incredible amount of dedication and strength (not that i, laura, would know hahah). i am so very proud of jane for having goals and not letting the busyness of life and sports, and a foot injury, get in the way. i felt truly inspired seeing her smiling at mile 8! i feel so blessed to know this awesome, creative, strong girl and to share a corner of the internet together.
i, laura, spent a very sunny saturday hiking in taylor’s falls, located in the interstate wisconsin state park. it was such a nice day full of beautiful trails, awesome views, and a yummy picnic lunch.
this summer, i (jane) am making a particular effort to try new things. from food to music to form of exercise, i want to expand my horizons. so, today, i went to my first boxing class! i was nervous that i wouldn’t be able to keep up, but i ended up having a great experience. it was easy to pick up, a great workout, and definitely unique from my normal workouts. i am looking forward to continuing stepping out of my comfort and seeing what life has to offer.
happy hump day; sorry we missed you yesterday – crazy busy week for us!
we are so excited to share our latest collaboration with a local company, truce! we were lucky enough to talk to one of the co-owners, blaire, and get a tour around the place.
when was truce started? two and a half years ago.
what inspired you to open this juice store and why minneapolis? i started juicing when i lived in california and then noticed the absence of a juicing place in minneapolis when i moved here.
why uptown as your first location? i saw minneapolis as a growing city and i really liked it here. i thought that my passion for health and wellness would be appreciated there.
do you live in minneapolis? yes!
how do you stay fit? i love to walk my dog, do yoga, and sometimes pilates.
do you have plans to expand? yes! both product and location wise. we are planning on opening four more locations around the twin cities.
what’s the best part about having your own business? being my own boss!
were there obstacles that came with starting your own business? the hard parts are differently the not-so-fun parts of running a business like hiring and firing, health inspections, etc. those things seem to take up a lot of time!
what do you look for in an employee? i like my employees to be reliable and have a willingness to learn. i also look for someone who is interested in our products.
blaire showed around the shop and explained that all the juices and products are made fresh daily. they receive daily shipments of all the produce and juicers work for six hours every morning to create their delicious juice.
we tried three of their fresh pressed juices: morning greens, early greens, and spiced cashew milk and a delicious almond butter bar.
this post is in partnership with truce- all opinions are our own.
