Last night the winner of The Biggest Loser was chosen and people don’t seem to be happy.  I will admit, I don’t watch the show.  I really don’t like how the show doesn’t take it’s moment to educate the viewers on losing the weight, it strictly about the game.  In the end, it’s all about […]

We are runners!  I am proud to say this and I’m even more proud that I can say WE are runners!  The blog has been left silent for a couple of days because we have been busy doing some amazing things.  Now is not the time to talk about those things, because of the horrible […]

Talk about a crazy day! We had no idea the CNN story would cause this much buzz and definitely wasn’t something we were looking for by talking about our journey. Did you see they did a small bit on the actual news channel too? I missed it, but I heard all about it. Willie and […]
