Shamrock Marathon Recap

Let me start this off with this one point…  finding someone to take a journey with you allows someone to bear witness.  They see you at your highs and your lows.  They see things that others may never even notice exist within you. You may be sitting there wondering why I let this go really […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: 2015

2015. 2014. 2013. 2012. It has been a journey.  After this last year though, I have noticed something else begin to change.  The “old me” has begun to fade from my memory.  She would have never woke up in the morning and thought the things that I think now.  She didn’t brush her hair the […]

It’s been a while again.  I’m here.  And trying to survive the holidays with the littles, senior year of college, sewing, marathon training and blogging.  This may end up a little more of a catching up blog than anything else.  Post marathon…   I ran an awesome sub 30 minute 5K.

Chasin My Fit: BANANAS!

The last couple weeks have been bananas!  Between school, getting ready for Disney and the snow, I’ve been going on warp speed.  Not to mention I was trying to heal a tendon, shin issues and a hip flexor thing before the runs!

Chasing my fit: Makeover time…but not for me.
