I had decided to do this one mid week last week because I had always wanted to do a Mother's Day race. Yesterday's 5k was very last minute...but I figured that the distances on each day would be doable. One I could do at race pace, and one I wou... Read more
I decided to do this one yesterday afternoon as my husband was picking up his half marathon race packet. I saw there was 50 slots left for the 5k and thought 'why not?'
By the time of the 5k (started at noon), it was warming up. Also, we s... Read more
I think I am still in shock, to be honest. I went to bed early last night because I was very tired. I didn't sleep well at all (and to be honest I sometimes have very spiritual thoughts about that and wondering if I am being called to get up, bu... Read more
Seriously...I'm on the hunt. Perhaps I am being hard on myself. I did endure a good wind whipping, rain, and hail on Saturday. I did suck it up and got my 'last chance workout' in. But that has been it. My only saving grace is my significant cha... Read more
Kids are home today. My legs finally feel like I did not attempt anything terribly athletic this past weekend (LOL). That is usually when I would feel the most comfortable exercising again. I know I know...exercise and you will losen up.

Well I knew when I woke up I was dehydrated from yesterday. I made sure to push liquid today. I had picked up some onion mix and roasted some red potatoes with it. Had an vegan/gf waffle with applesauce at breakfast. I knew I would be splurging ... Read more
I had been looking at this event last year, thinking how cool it would be to challenge myself in a different way. When I was in the midst of testing my knee and easing back in to running, I would be up for a 10k. I couldn't find one the exact we... Read more
I'm sitting at my dining room table, adoring the crisp air and the sunshine. It is day's like today that make you want to forget all your other chores or responsibilities and just find something to do outside! Sadly, I have a proposal (or two) t... Read more
I guess you could say that, in many respects, I don't know how I could define my comfort zones. Especially when it comes to my health and fitness. If anyone truly knows me well, then they know they cannot tell me I can't do something. I might no... Read more
I officially completed my 10k training on Saturday. Due to business travel, I did not get any running in on those days. Plus I saw the streets of NOLA and no thank you! LOL. So I squeezed some mileage in two days straight and was just a couple m... Read more
I am, by most means, a very simple gal. So when I decided to make my first smoothie...I used my simple trusted mixer. For the longest time I never own one. In fact, I only bought it to make milkshakes for my husband and boys. LOL. I don't prefer... Read more
Between a discussion that I had with my husband and another with my best friend, I suddenly have a complex about where I am with my health today. A couple nights ago, my husband said that when he sees how I approach food and fitness, I am a figh... Read more
I was contacted by Trainer T here on SP, who wanted to feature my responses to questions from a runner. I was so flattered! I was notified that the article is up!

So we've been feeling our way through gluten free/vegan eating. I am not super stringent (example: we tried the Field Grain sausages and they are vegan but not GF). We like the rice pasta quite a bit, but our absolute fave is Maifun... Read more
So I had read about Kris Carr, who is living with cancer. I was inspired by her, because she has managed to halt the progression through modifying nutrition. She even went back to school to educate herself and help others. My interest was piqued... Read more
