It’s officially fall! Which means it’s officially marathon training season. WOOHOO! What does that mean in Florida? Beautiful fall leaves, those brown, orange, yellow colors, with cool breezes and cool nights…NO. That doesn’t happen here. We get rain, HOT days and humid nights. But runners still run through those conditions, I think we are just used to it and we battle through it all. But … Continue reading Walt Disney World Marathon 2019

Today is Fibromyalgia awareness day. And as you know, I suffer from it greatly. I was diagnosed from it about 5 years ago but at first, I didn’t want to accept that I was sick with another illness besides Scoliosis. At first, my symptoms and pain wasn’t too dramatic or intense. Welp, that has changed a bit. What is Fibromyalgia? It is an invisible illness … Continue reading Running with Fibromyalgia

You can’t control what happens right? You can’t control the good or the bad. But one thing is certain…..LIFE. It is a gift.

Just your typical mild soreness, but as you read in my marathon recap, my back did lock up on me and I am still experiencing it today….yuck!

WOW! To say that this weekend was memorable, it’s an understatement. From the Cigna blogger event, where we learned about nutrition and exercise in a fun way where we stacked cups, apples, did (fake) shot, played beer pong without the beer, oh yeah…we sang too. Then it was time to check into my home away from home, Hilton Bonnet Creek. I was so ready to get there … Continue reading 25th Anniversary runDisney Marathon
