Travel

Please excuse me while I talk about this race with great emotion.  This race was supposed to be my first race last year but we all know what happened.  This year it was Willie's first marathon!  When we arrived in Memphis, I felt like I was running a marathon for the first time.  I was [...]

Sunday morning was the day to run long! This was a taper run for me because I planned on running the Marine Corp Marathon the following week. This was also a training run for Willie who is training for his first marathon in December. It was meant to be fun. My attitude for this race [...]

It’s been awhile since I ran this race but when I got back from St. Louis, I got sick and then I was on to Washington DC for Marine Corp. I’m usually really good about doing the race recaps on time but this time I failed. Willie and I ventured to St. Louis just to [...]

Marine Corps Marathon Recap

Hello!  I'm still alive.  I've been sick lately and all my extra energy has been put into sleeping instead of working and/or blogging.  This past weekend I traveled to Washington DC for the very first time in my life.  I went with my mom because I raised money for Team Inspiration in the name of [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Fitbloggin at a glance

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.
