Squatting back to fit

March 21, 2015


After running 3 marathons and competing in a fitness challenge, I found myself needing a break from my massive dedication to working out.

March 9, 2014


Today’s 18 miler was tough, but I enjoyed it. There were flashes of brilliance to keep me going.  It all started with a dream…. (Wayne’s World Dream sequence noises “Dooddotdurldoo!

Fundraising??? Ew.

I have made so many changes since my last post.  I am constantly writing posts in my mind while on a run, that never see the light of laptop.  I didn’t even finish up my big year of forty makeover challenge.  I took the pictures, but in all honesty, I didn’t look any different than […]

October Weigh-In and the TAPER!

November 1, 2013


I have entered the taper. The bizzaro world of training which makes you feel like you aren’t sure if your body can run further than 8 miles. One weekend, you are doing a straight twenty miles, the next, you are only required to do 10, then 8, then??? You’re just supposed to run 26.2 next […]
