Friday is usually a more hoppin’ day on the blog but I was MIA yesterday. It all started with a horrible rain storm. I didn’t want to drive to the gym in this horrible rain storm at 5 am because I’m afraid to drive in Noah’s Ark weather. It took me an hour to get […]

This past weekend I spent it in Savannah, GA at my first blog conference, FitBloggin.  I didn’t know what to expect when I arrived.  I was rooming with people I didn’t know, traveling to a city I knew nothing about and embarking on the complete unknown.  Attending this conference was out of my comfort zone.

This past weekend, I was at Fitbloggin in Savannah! There were lots of things for us to try while there. The biggest take away from the weekend was getting my numbers checked at the Walgreens Way to Well truck. Everyone needs to get their numbers checked. I spoke about how Willie and I didn’t do […]

People often ask me why I run.  I run because I love it.  People never ask me why I run so many races but I know they always wonder.  I run the races because it’s about pushing past boundaries for me. Every time I line up at the start and cross the finish line I […]

Today hasn’t been kind to me. The day started out great but it went down hill shortly after I taught my cycle class this morning. My ankle has been bothering me but I trucked through the class. I really enjoyed teaching the class this morning and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Teaching this class was […]

Change is a part of life that we can’t really avoid.  Things change on a constant basis, including the weather.  I can’t believe we were hit with two ice events in 6 days here in southeast Texas.  I was cooped up in the house for a couple of days which really gave me a chance […]

I hate to do this to you but I’m going to have a “let’s get real” moment with you.  It’s just something I need to get off my chest because I really think it’s been weighing me down.  So here it is: When the St. Jude Marathon was canceled it broke me! I know I […]
