I’ve thought a lot about this last year. I’ve truly changed, and for the better (in my opinion, and that is what counts, right?) if I may say so myself. I went through and purged my blog of negative posts in the beginning of the year, realizing what a drag I was for SUCH a long… Continue reading My 2015 review
Last week I will admit I had started to get a little nervous about my upcoming marathon. Why? Well, the chance I might be running it solo had come to play, but it sounds like my nephew is doing MUCH better and that the original plan of my sister and I running this race together… Continue reading Weekend wrap up-I’m ready!!!

Here’s some of my favorite things lately… Running outside in a tank top and running shorts/skirt. The wind in my hair, the sun on my face and actually feeling… Continue reading Friday Favs
In 2013 I ran my second FULL marathon. I swore I’d never run a second full, but got the bug after the first training run.
