Running

I was provided with a free bib to this race by the festival but all opinions are my own. Spoiler alert: This race was AWESOME! This race was one I put on my radar last year. I found out about it too late and I couldn't participate but I made sure it made the list [...]

Happy Friday everyone!  This has been the LONGEST short week of my life.  I've been finding it hard to push through this week so I'm definitely glad to have made it to Friday.  I wanted to share some of my highlights from the week.  Sadly, I don't have many HIGHlights but there are a few. [...]

It's different for everyone and it's going to change over time.  Keep that in mind.  I've said it many many times.  The journey I took is different from the one Willie took and will be different from the one many people take. A lifestyle change is about developing new habits.  In our case, our lifestyle [...]

On Sunday, I ran the Revel Rockies Marathon that ended in Morrison, CO.  I can't tell you where it started because we had to take a bus to the top and there was no cell signal. This was the very first Revel ROCKIES race, so it was cool to be apart of the event. The [...]

This past Saturday I ran an 10K!  I really wanted to go on a hike but since I was doing this trip by myself I didn't want to be roaming the Rocky Mountains by myself and risk something happening to me.  I'm not an experienced hiker either so I decided that a trail run would [...]

Back from Colorado

It's been a long weekend but one that I definitely needed.  I've been really stressed and a little unhappy with things in my life so I needed some time to just loosen up and have a good time.  The only thing that really sucked about this trip was Willie couldn't go with me.  I really [...]

What’s in my race pack?

I'm leaving for Denver soon for the Revel Rockies Inaugural Marathon and I'm so excited.  The only thing about traveling is you have to pack.  I really dislike packing because I'm an over packer.  I don't want to forget anything! Plus when I'm going away for a race, I never know what I'm going to [...]

I saw this game of would your rather on my friend Lauren's site and I thought it would be fun. Everyone is always saying they want to know a little bit more about me so I thought this would be a perfect chance to shed some light on me! 1. Would you rather run a [...]

Good morning everyone!  I hope the weekend is starting off just right for you.  Guess what I did this morning? I ran my taper run this morning. Taper is a blessing and a curse because I've been on a running high (mileage) lately but now it's time to wind that down because the 26.2 is [...]

This morning started off very early for me.  It's the day in every marathon training plan people look at and think..."20 miles is a long way to go without someone cheering you on."  Well today was my day.  Honestly, I was skeptical about completing all 20 miles in the Texas heat and humidity but I [...]
