Hey!! I’m still here!! I don’t know HOW I have allowed myself to go almost FIVE months without blogging. Totally uncalled for and there really is no good reason. You have probably noticed over the last year to 18 moths, I’ve been less present on the blog and on social media. Especially when it comes to […]

The first few months of 2017, I have focused more on getting back to setting goals, eating more mindfully, and expanding my strategy to improve my fitness and build a leaner, stronger body. In January, I completed the Ultimate Reset…and I realize I never updated the blog with my results. It was a challenging three weeks, as […]

I’ve been feeling sorry for myself and beating myself up since running the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday, October 30. So many feelings have swirled around inside of me, trying to claim a spot in my permanent memory of the event, that it’s taken me a few days to decide which ones would be allowed to […]

Marathoners can all agree that training can feel like a part-time job. For me it isn’t just the time spent on the run (which is at the higher end of the time spectrum because I’m not too speedy) but also going to bed early and waking up early. The last few weeks with higher mileage […]

I don’t really know why, but I was such a big grump this morning. As always, a good run was able to turn my attitude around. Unfortunately, it wasn’t before wrapping up my 5-ish miles with Lexa so she had to put up with my sass. Sorry, friend! Lexa is one friend I can solidly […]

It’s really been two weeks since my last training update? Absolutely. The last days of September were extremely busy as I volunteered all weekend at a local festival and directed a 5k. On top of that was my 18 mile run that I fit in Saturday morning, September 24. I had a running buddy from mile […]

Missed run done!

in Fitness, Just life, Training

If you’ve been following my road to the 2016 MCM, you may recall that I delayed my 12-mile training run this weekend. Saturday’s planned run would have to happen Sunday. My best friend Jenn and I had a blast at the Dixie Chicks concert, didn’t get a whole lot of sleep Saturday night, but we […]

Ever have something you KNOW you have to do…you’re not really looking forward to it but you’re not opposed to it either? It’s just something you have to do? Am I making any sense here? Hang on, let me take another sip from my caramel macchiato from The Bean.             […]

My WHY

Comparison is the thief of joy.  I’ve heard this quote before but when I had to sit down and identify and clarify my WHY for being a Team Beachbody coach, this quote made so much sense to me. I signed up with Beachbody because I had already been working on my own fitness journey and […]

Why is it so easy to give advice, but so easy to not take our own good, smart advice? I went to bed last night feeling depressed, frustrated, and defeated…and woke up feeling the same way. Yesterday was Day 1 of The Master’s Hammer & Chisel, and last night my friend took my ‘before’ pictures […]
