Less than 50 days to MCM

September 11, 2016

Seeing the weather forecast, I’ve been actually looking forward to this weekend’s long run since Thursday. That’s when I saw it was supposed to be 70 degrees today. After an awfully humid, 75 degree attempt of a run ending in 1.5 miles Wednesday morning, and a humid, 79 degree 5-miler that should have been 8 on […]

More than halfway there ~ livin’ on a prayer

September 3, 2016

OK so I know those aren’t the exact words, but it had a ring to it so…. 15 miles was on the agenda this morning. I was looking forward to a long run in low humidity and cooler temps. It’s been SUCH a humid and warm/hot summer for NW PA. It just sucks the energy […]

Half Marathon #6

July 25, 2016

I signed up months ago for two half marathons this summer, partly because it would force me to train and run more and partly because I love adding to my collection of medals! Half marathon #6 took place Sunday, July 17 at Presque Isle State Park. It came about 5 weeks after the last one […]

Half Marathon #5

June 12, 2016

After six years of running, you would think I’d know by now to never be foolish enough to assume a run will be easy just because the course is “flat and fast.” For me, there usually is no “fast” anyway, because my pace slowed significantly once I began training for longer distances. But the description, […]

My WHY

March 30, 2016

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 […]

Almost halfway and I’m in love

January 30, 2016

I realized something in the middle of my workout today. I had to take a quick break to sip some water and wipe the sweat away that was stinging my eyes, and try and catch my breath, and I felt a big grin come across my face. It was then that I realized…27 days ago […]

Hammer & Chisel update – Day 15

January 18, 2016

Fifteen days ago I jumped into a new workout program built on the three phases of SSP Training: Stabilization, Strength, and Power. What does that mean? I’m pushing my body harder than I have in a long time and am ending each workout completely drenched in sweat! I just now have gotten to the point […]

Dear Self: Take your own advice

January 5, 2016

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 […]
