As runners we have all probably “run” into an injury or two once in our running lifetime. Am I right? How did you first treat it when it happened? Did you just take 2 tyenol?

I haven’t been on here since…last year 😉 I am having a rough start to 2016. I was actually in the hospital on January 1st, due to some odd pain I was having. I started having some weird tingling and numbness down my left arm all the way into my hand. After many tests and a few x-rays, they suspect that I am having some … Continue reading Be strong. Be brave.
So half marathon number 8 has been completed. I have my 3rd OUC Half marathon under my belt. I had not been well enough to train so I wasn’t expecting much out of this race. Boy I was wrong… I usually have a pre-race routine the night before a race. I will lay out my gear, and everything I will need for the race. The morning of, … Continue reading Run Orlando

Surprisingly, I … Continue reading NYC part II THE RACE

I just wanted to take a little moment and remind of you of the importance of chasing your dreams. What is a dream? A dream a goal with a deadline. I have always been a dreamer, I have always wished and hoped for things to happen. But they won’t happen if I don’t chase them right? I have been working my butt off to reach … Continue reading Be a dreamer
You all know how much I love ASICS, well they have released a pretty awesome shoe. It’s called the GEL-Quantum 360. It is made with, well, 360 degrees of gel. It is made to fit like a glove and to give you a bit more cushion and support.

Life is tough, and there are constant obstacles that block our paths. But the outcome is all in how you see things. Having Scoliosis makes things much harder for me but I choose to see things from a different perspective. It’s much easier to cry all day, stay in bed, and live off of medications. But that is NOT the life I want, nor have. … Continue reading From a different perspective
