The day after Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving yesterday. I was hosting this year which took up a lot of time.  It was hard to keep up with everything and keep blogging.  I'll give you the short version of the holiday.  On Wednesday night, we had a little get together with some friends.  I didn't get [...]

A look at friendships

It's time to take a wellness break here on the blog. I'm all about living a healthy life through mind, body AND soul. So let's talk about friends. I was never the girl who had a lot of friends.  My close friends I can count on my hand and those are the people I lean [...]

At the bachelorette party

My dear friend Mel is getting married when I'm in China so I won't be able to attend but I was able to go to her bachelorette party last night.  Well at least half of it. Since you only really hear about me working out and such I thought this was the perfect opportunity to [...]

This weekend was full of races.  On Saturday, I ran the Zooma Women's Texas Half Marathon in Bastrop, TX! We're all crazy. Half marathon on Saturday, 10 miler on Sunday. We had to get up super early to make it to the race but when the sun came up we were all optimistic. Missy was [...]

It's Friday!  I'm excited for the weekend and have a new experience.  This year I was invited to join a Texas Independence Relay team and I'm really excited for the experience. It's 200 miles with my friends. We're either going to love or hate each other by the time it's all done! We have 11 [...]

Race Recap: RnR Dallas

It's been a super busy day!  I really wanted to post this morning, but it just wasn't happening.  I should be sleep right now because I have to teach at 5AM but I'm sitting here writing the blog because I don't want it to get pushed back any further.  I have other blogs I want [...]

This race kind of came in under the radar due to Willie being sick!  To be honest, I felt really horrible for even still wanting to go after Willie had his surgery but he encouraged me to go.  I originally signed up for the race to do the half because I just ran a marathon, [...]

Excuse me for this being late, I was too lazy to blog yesterday. When my daily mile report came out yesterday it was all kinds of wrong. NO ONE should work out that much unless they are training for something and I AM NOT training for anything in particular. On Sunday I ran my 14th [...]

A Christmas light bike ride

Last night, Willie and I went on a Christmas light bike ride.  We wanted to do it last year but we didn't.  I don't remember why but it probably had something to do with the social aspect of ride.  We just didn't know anyone and it never occurred to us to just go out there [...]

It was my 12th half this year, Willie's 3rd and my best friend Tyson's first half/race EVER, so I was excited for this race.  It was kind of bittersweet because it was also the last RnR of the year!  I really wanted to end the RnR season with a bang but let me tell you [...]
