So this past saturday was the Hot Lips Hustle 5k. It was an odd day as it was absolutely freezing. It had been cool some mornings the past week, but not freezing! Initially I was very happy about this until the race got started. No matter how ha... Read more

Over the weekend I ran the DI Dash 5k benefiting Children's Healthcare of America. Despite the very challenging hilly course, I was very excited because I hadn't raced in 3 weeks and I was able to train relatively healthy! I do say relative... Read more

So yesterday evening I got to run with the BPRC Marietta group. I've only ran with them on the morning track workout, but you're not really running together during that workout. I ran with the BPRC Kennesaw group last Tuesday so I thought I'd ch... Read more

A very happy TGIF to all! I was feeling a little pooped yesterday. My sleeping has been sub par. I get sleep at night, but then I wake up in the very early morning anxiously and violently tossing and turning. On top of that, the days just s... Read more
Back to back group runs?

I don't think I've ever been so excited about running before. It's always been a form of cross training, but the more consistent I get and the more progress I make, the more I crave it! In Georgia, we have a chain of running stores called B... Read more

Just a random blog to sort out my thoughts! So since saturday I have been super restless in the mornings. I toss and turn all morning long. Like early morning before 4:00am and all the way till I wake up. The bf has noticed it too. I've nev... Read more
Healthy running a week and a battle of nutrition
Monday, August 12, 2013      1 comments

Happy Monday everyone! Last week was a really good week for me as far as running goes. I had no injuries or illness to battle with! One thing I struggle with is running had a higher pace by myself. I do most of my training by myself and for... Read more

The final verdict from my doctor....
Friday, August 02, 2013      4 comments

Food poisoning! Which is originally what I had thought. I was glad it was something that wasn't contagious. Also since it was the 6th day I had it, I knew it would be gone soon enough (The doctor was surprised it had stuck around for so long). T... Read more

and nothing. For all intent and purposes, I am completely healthy and fine. But that being the case, why do I feel so terrible? This dizziness, nausea, and lack of appetite is not normal. I very well may never go to the doctor again. It's j... Read more
The worst feeling is not knowing what is wrong.
Tuesday, July 30, 2013      5 comments

I'd like to start off by saying I hate going to the doctor. I feel like every time I go to the doctor I leave with no more information as to what is wrong. If the answer isn't black or white, doctors just tend to send you on your way. I haven't ... Read more
