I know you all have been following my running and Scoliosis journey. A few weeks ago I was struggling with a new back pain that I have never had before. It was severely debilitating. I could barely do my usual daily things, like breathing. But I’ve been seeing lots of doctors and professionals. This past weekend I completed my first half marathon by myself. I … Continue reading What did he say….
What does the word “impossible” mean to you? For me it means a challenge that I gladly accept. Almost my whole life, many have told me that what I do is impossible.

As most of you know, Alpha and I run every race in costumes. You have all asked and waited to see what we will be running as this year…Since we are running two races, that meant two costumes!

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

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
With another month down, going into my favorite time of year, I can’t be more excited!!! Fall time in Florida may not be as beautiful or as noticeable being that our palm tree’s don’t change color!
