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 [...]

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 [...]

Note: This post was written on the plane this morning but I couldn't get a wifi connection to post it earlier. I'm still posting it though because I took the time to write it. I had a super early flight this morning. I had to leave the house at 2:30am to make it to the [...]
