Prior to the race, I treated myself to a manicure, which never happens. Each color was a visual reminder during taper week of what I wanted to accomplish during each 6 mile set. Continue reading
Marathon training has been going extremely well. I’ve been pushing through some crazy, hard workouts my coach has thrown my way, and I have fallen in love with the pavement. I love the random workouts he sends me; it keeps me guessing and yearning for more. I’ve doubted certain workouts, and come through on the other side with even more confidence. Continue reading
Seeing a Sunrise!
Skirt Sports is doing its #31daysofskirtsports and each day has a new theme. Can you guess what today’s theme is?! I had a hard time picking which sunrise picture I wanted to post on Instagram. I have so many to choose from!
It made me think… Continue reading
Another Year Wiser!
I recently kicked off the last year in my 20’s. As the day came and went, it had me thinking and reflecting. I was dreading the day, and wasn’t exactly thrilled. I had many surprised throughout the day, and was spoiled. Continue reading
Taking a Break!
Priorities are a funny thing.
They are the thing that’s the most important. They are what you choose to dedicate your limited time to and what you consider most valuable.
Priorities change; and quickly, too! Life throws curveballs and that to-do list for today quickly gets shuffled to tomorrow. Continue reading
Life’s (Little) Moments!
I’ve been having pulling and chest pains off and on for some time (usually the worst pain during/after swimming or crazy upper body workouts). I’ve ignored it and kept telling myself it’s the “new normal”. Last July, I saw my doctor for a lump on my left side. He aspirated me (stuck a giant need in me) thinking it was an “oily pouch”, and told me to come back if the lump got bigger. The lump has gotten bigger and been causing some pain in my chest/sternum when touched or after an extensive workout. Continue reading
Why I Run!!!
This picture showed up on my FB memory, and it got me thinking – this was my first ever half marathon three years ago. I’m gearing up to do my second half marathon of the year this weekend (number 8 or 9…or 10th half marathon…I stopped counting). Continue reading
I’m behind in my blogging, so today the goal is to catch up with pictures and a few highlights from the month.
March 10th – Sarah’s two year anniversary of her cancer diagnosis. The three of us went to Florida for some fun in the sun. Continue reading
When “Disaster” Strikes – Cry, Run, or Swim
As February comes to a close, I’m reminded that this road I’m traveling on is full of various terrains. At the top of the mountains there’s an extremely beautiful view of the world around us, and at the lowest points I’m reminded about my why. This week has definitely been crazy, and I have no idea where to start. Continue reading
Everyone has junk lying around the house. Some more so than others. I work with clients and go to job sites quite often to see work being done and so forth. I’m amazed at the crap some people have in their homes and garages. I’m not judging them by any means, but I couldn’t live that way. Some people are hoarders – they have garages full of newspapers. They have bedrooms piled high with boxes and crap. They say clutter isn’t healthy. Mess causes stress. When my bed isn’t made in the morning, I go crazy. It bothers me Continue reading
