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 [...]

The story about my flu shot

Since I'm going to be doing A LOT of traveling from now until the end of the year.  I decided that I should get a flu shot.  I think everyone should get a flu shot.  I also thought it was wise to get a flu shot because I'm also running a few marathons and that's [...]

This weekend I went to visit my bestie in Mississippi!  It was her son's birthday so she had to put on a good show.  But first I had to get my run in. I love running there.  I must tell you, that is where I really fell in love with running.  That was the first [...]

When I travel, it's really hard to get the meal prepping done.  Guess what? I'm going to be doing a lot of traveling for the rest of the year so I'm going to have to learn to perfect the system.  I usually end up skipping a workout so I can get everything done but yesterday [...]

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'm a serious tea drinker! I will go to Teavana and spend all my money without knowing it. That tea is EXPENSIVE so I don't buy it that often. I do love all kinds of tea though which is why I was excited for my trip to Denver a couple of weeks ago. I made [...]

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 [...]
