Truth...Plain and Simple

Wednesday, May 30, 2012      6 comments

Going through a valley right now and thankful that I came across a few things that tossed a log or two onto my Spark-fire. I have choices, I can choose to sit here talking about what "I need to" do, or I can choose to get up and do it. ... Read more

On Marathons and Mustard Seeds....

Thursday, February 09, 2012      4 comments

I.Am.Struggling. It actually feels good to say, to own it, to acknowledge that things aren't where I thought or wanted them to be in this moment. Training for a marathon is a monumental undertaking for even the healthiest elite athletes. I kne... Read more

A recommendation for a MUST won't be sorry...

Sunday, February 05, 2012      2 comments

"I dont let opinions drive me like I used to. That is one huge key to success. So long as opinions of others, real or perceived, dictate what you will or will not do, failure is the only option because you will not tap your inner potential. I ha... Read more

Paula Deen Dismay...

Wednesday, January 18, 2012      3 comments

Shame on you Paula. Shame, shame on you for not being forthcoming about your health....or lack thereof. You could have used all or even part of that time, in which you withheld the truth of what eating more than a lion's share of butter, sugar... Read more

This is incredibly long, but it is to help me if you have time, just bear with me. The HM was on 5-1-11 and it has taken me this long to not only find the time, but to find words that could accurately describe how I felt on that v... Read more

OKC Memorial Half-Marathon

Monday, May 02, 2011      15 comments

I am still unable to capture in words all that this race held for me in terms of spirit, emotion, challenge, and pure experience. So until the words are in place, I'll just share a few pictures. I'll set the tone by saying the conditions w... Read more

Getting Over All or Nothing...

Tuesday, March 08, 2011      12 comments

This blog is basically me just working through my own thoughts. I don't know why I am so innately inclined towards "all or nothing". It has been a sharp and painful thorn in my side for too long on this journey. I finally feel like the thorn ... Read more

Too Restless to Rest...

Wednesday, March 02, 2011      7 comments will officially end here today I guess. I challenged myself to follow along with John "The Penguin" Bingham's 100 Days of Exercise Challenge back in January. I wanted to go as far as I could, but in the back of my mind I knew eventua... Read more

WOW! February Wrap - Up and C2KMB Plan Results

Monday, February 28, 2011      13 comments

WOW! Said it again...I am so thrilled and honestly shocked by the results I've gotten this month. I had a successful January, but had resigned myself to the fact that February would surely be less stellar. Then I was given the blessing of a p... Read more
