We are in October, during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. But it feels like we are in year 4 of the 2020 pandemic. It has been a whirlwind of a year. I am pretty sure all of us at one point or another have been affected by this Coronavirus. Yes, races have been cancelled, even some for next year have already been cancelled or switched over … Continue reading Running a race with anxiety during a pandemic
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

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.

But I … Continue reading Cheers to 2014

I am still deep in training for the Goofy Challenge in January so I knew this race wasn’t going to be a problem. 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

Super excited to say, I completed my second half marathon this year!!! This race was amazing and an unforgettable experience. I was a little nervous on race day because the whole week leading up to Saturday I was sick with a weird upper respiratory infection. I was very congested with a constant cough with a fever of 104. My nose was so stuffy I couldn’t … Continue reading Team Refuel represented!
