GO HARD – Hug a Runner

Go hug a runner because it's time to Go HARD.  It's Globally Organized Hug A Runner Day!  Last year, I missed out but this year I got in lots of hugs! I told you running makes me want to hug people! These are some of my favorite people but not all. So don't get offended [...]

The beginning of MY quest

If you've been reading the blog, you may have noticed between the lines that I've been in search of something.  The past 6 years I've been trying to move in a positive direction after being so not positive for a long period of life.  Before I played the victim, I complained all the time and [...]

Today I ran a half marathon.  This was one that wasn't on the schedule.  It was kind of last minute and it was a race I had never done before.  Last week I ran a bridge so it's not that bad of an idea.  The race was only a hour and some change away so [...]

Meal prep moved to Saturday

Happy Saturday night.  Most people are out doing interesting things and I'm blogging.  But I wanted to let you know that I'm not dead.  I'm still here.  I'm just trying to figure everything out.  I may or may not be struggling with documenting everything on social media.  I'll stop complaining about it because I signed [...]

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 [...]

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Mizuno for the Wave Ride 18. All opinions expressed here are my own! With the amount of running I do, I go through a lot of shoes, but I've never tried Mizuno's before.  When it comes to trying new shoes, it's kind of hard [...]

I was provided a free bib to the Tyler Rose Marathon in exchange for a race review. On Sunday, I ran the Tyler Rose Marathon!  Last year I ran the half marathon and I kind of enjoyed it.  The course was really hilly and I remember thinking, "I would never run a marathon out here." [...]

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 [...]

I must be honest.  I haven't been very motivated to workout this week.  It's kind of like I've been going through the motions.  There have been some serious highlights but for the most part I've been stuck in the funk.  On Monday, I returned to my workout roots and had a great time.  It was [...]
