Amanda Kloots's son, Elvis, is remembering his father. On July 26, the fitness trainer shared a video of her 13-month-old son uttering his first words, which share a sweet connection to his dad, Nick Cordero, who passed away from coronavirus complications earlier this month. "Elvis said his first words today!! Listen closely!" she wrote on Instagram. "He pointed at Nick in our new picture light and said 'right there.' He hasn't seen Nick since March 30th. The fact that he still knows who his Dada is, point to him and give him a kiss to me is amazing." Elvis's face lights up as he points to his father in the touching video, seen below.

After 95 days of battling COVID-19 and the complications it caused, Nick died on July 5. Amanda had been capturing his time in the hospital, keeping fans and prayer-senders alike up to date on his status through candid Instagram posts. Now, as she and Elvis move into the house they bought together, Amanda is finding her "new normal" with her family by her side, as she noted on social media. "I know Nick will be with us. He wanted to live in this house more than anything so I'll put lots family photos up and make sure his presence is with us."

  • I Run 6 Miles a Day, and I'm in Love With My New Hoka One One Clifton 7 Sneakers

    Ever since my CrossFit gym closed in March and the weather was beginning to warm up, I took my workouts outside and started running again. I go every morning for about an hour, and it's really helped give me the space and time I need for self-care and to support my mental health. Unfortunately, my feet have been less than psyched with my daily workouts, and even though I stretch daily and get enough sleep, I've had some issues with plantar fasciitis and knee pain. When running, I found that I had to stick to wearing a specific pair of sneakers and even those didn't make my feet feel 100-percent awesome. Hoka One One sent me the Clifton 7 running sneakers ($130) to test out, and my feet are beyond happy. I tried this brand about five years ago when I was training for my first half marathon, but they were a little too cushiony for me, and I've been using other brands since. But now, I'm officially hooked! What I Love About the Hoka One One Clifton 7 Sneakers When I slipped on these sneakers, I instantly felt the smooth comfort and cushioning. They felt perfect right away as I walked around my living room to test them out. I liked that they fit snugly around my midsole but that I also had a little room in the toe area. I'm a 7.5 and these definitely fit true to size. The laces tightened well and stayed put - although they were on the longer side, so I had to double knot them, otherwise the little plastic ends on the laces annoyingly hit my ankle as I ran. The best part was that the arch support felt great, and I didn't experience the mid-run left foot pain I normally do on my six-miler. When I got home from my run, I realized I didn't have to stop and walk! My feet also felt great for the rest of the day when normally, my feet and legs will feel a little achy and tired. I've used these sneakers for about a week, and I've ran short distances, did an eight-miler, I walked, and I've also tested them on both the road and on trails. Every time I wore these shoes, my feet felt great, and I was impressed and so happy to find a pair of sneakers that allows me to run pain-free. I'll definitely need to get another pair for the winter! These sneakers also look cute, which come on - I'd be lying if I said I didn't care how my sneakers looked. The other Hokas I tried had a huge thick sole, so I like how these look just like regular sneakers. I have the misty rose/cameo brown color and there are a variety of colors to choose from. Keep reading to see all of the other colors you can find in the Clifton 7s. Related: After a Long or Intense Run, Stretch Your Tired Muscles With This 10-Minute Routine

  • I Have a Phobia, and I Wish People Understood Just How Debilitating It Can Be

    When people hear about phobias, they usually think that they're silly or over-exaggerated - but while phobias are, in fact, irrational, that does not make them any less frightening or crippling for those of us who live with them. I know this because I live with a serious phobia: emetophobia, or the fear of vomit.
