Last week a woman was running in the wee hours of the morning and she was attacked. Her attacker tried to pull her in the bushes but she went all karate kid on him and got away. I don't know if I could have done that. I can tell you one thing, I don't want [...]

It's the new year so I've been trying out new ideas for a snack.  It's hard for me because I am a creature of habit and I really like what I like. I received this Mamma Chia Clean Energy drink a while back.  I wanted to talk about them earlier but I needed to make [...]

The truth about life

You may have noticed the blog was a little scarce last week.  I hate when that happens.  I'm not one to schedule posts and send them through the loop.  Maybe I should do that in times like this but I like to stay authentic to my readers and post real stuff.  This past week I've [...]

I've been a little MIA this week.  It's been a busy busy week with my full-time and part-time job.  I haven't been doing a good job at keeping you informed with what I've been doing. First off, it's launch week at the gym which keeps me busy.  That means more teaching in my schedule.  It's [...]

This past weekend, I ran the Mississippi Blues Marathon in Jackson, MS.  This race made Runner's World Best Marathons to run this year.  I was highly intrigued about this race making the list.  Jackson isn't exactly the travel hot spot so I really wondered what the fuss was about.  I quickly learned but I'll get [...]

I don't know why but this morning I woke up thinking about the things that people said I should/would never do. It's easy to get wrapped up I. The idea of what others think and say about us. I could sit here and tell you that you shouldn't care, but I know it's easier said [...]

Five years ago today, I married my best friend. I don't want to make it about anything other than what it is. This is a day that Willie and I decided that we would become family. We promised to take care of each other and love each other unconditionally. Willie is the kindest, most compassionate [...]

The week is almost over and I can't wait for it to end. It's been a hard week or a couple of hard weeks have really hit me hard. A lot things haven't gone right, but I've been good at focusing on the good things. This week, I've been trying to step my game up. [...]

This day in 2011, Willie and I decided that it was time for a change.  Together we took the steps to lose weight and transform our lifestyle.  This morning I woke up to tell Willie today was the day and he didn't remember.  I take that as a good thing because that means we've come [...]

Race Recap: Texas Marathon

I wanted to get the new year started off the right way by doing something healthy.  New Year's Day started with a 90 minute drive to run a marathon.  The forecast for this race was not ideal but it got better as the day approached. When we arrived, we went to pick up our stuff. [...]
