I started thinking about my running and the entire journey to this point. There are many battles along the way and the truth is I didn’t win them all. It’s hard to set out on a path and have everything mapped out and things don’t go the way we planned. It’s hard to come to […]

There are lots of races I get for free or get a discount code for, this was not one of those races. It was worth every penny I paid for it (and it wasn’t that expensive) because of the perks that came along with it. The race directors were amazing and their staff/volunteers just the […]

It’s here! We finally made the video and got everything to a decent point. I am glad that we did this video to answer your questions. Maybe next time around I won’t be so amped up. It may have been the two ice coffees I had before we recorded. Whoops! The video is in two […]

I’m a firm believer that music does help guide a workout so that’s why I’ve put together some songs that may help you push through the best and worse workouts! This is your inspiration to go list! It’s always great to have a good motivational song come on while I’m working out because it sometimes […]
