Most of us are in the middle of training for a 5K, half, or a full marathon. We are all trying to better our health and stay active. At times, training can get hard and the goal might seem further away than it is. It is totally up to us on how we handle it. Just remember that you are strong enough to do anything … Continue reading Find a way, not an excuse.
Since I last wrote, last week, a few things have changed. I was put on a strict medication routine that I wasn’t too happy about at first. The medicines make me drowsy and sleepy. So the first few days on the medicines all I did was sleep. Had trouble sleeping at night though because the pain would kick in. I still spent a lot of … Continue reading I can, I will.
Well as I get ready to say good-bye to another year, I reflect on how much has happened. The good, the bad, and the ugly. 2014 was a memorable year for sure. I remember gearing up in January for my first full marathon. Nerves like you wouldn’t believe! The reason, I had little training due to fighting the flu all month-long in December. But I … Continue reading Cheers to 2014

Anything from decals, laces, nutrition bars, and … Continue reading The Holiday Limited Edition
This Saturday I ran the OUC Orlando Half Marathon, making it my most epic race of all time!

Even though there was almost 2 and a half miles of brick covered pavement, I knew it was going to feel longer lol. The day … Continue reading Proving that anything is POSSIBLE
How did I set 3 PRs in one month?!?!? I’ll tell you. It’s no secret. I have always been a competitive runner….I compete against myself. I RARELY run a race for time, or train to be faster. Knowing that running alone is a major task in itself, I’m not trying to go completely off my rocker and hurt myself. I know that running any distance … Continue reading Believe it is and you will succeed
Another update on my training for these upcoming races. I have been keeping up with the personalized training schedule I made for myself. I am 3 months into my training with a few setbacks. Luckily this time is a little different from my last training update. I had hit double digits officially and not in the way I would’ve liked. I was due for … Continue reading The Half and Full Marathon training continues
“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly. “I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.” “You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.” “Nobody asked your opinion,” said Alice.” As many of you have already known, I am a huge tea drinker. I have … Continue reading Mad about Tea!
