Being STRONG. Strength doesn’t come as easy as it seems. It’s getting tougher for me to be as strong and as capable as you all think. Let me fill you in a bit… I did run the runDisney Walt Disney World marathon over a month ago and I STILL haven’t filled you in on my recap. I am totally beating myself up for my poor … Continue reading Being strong, but I’m tired
Life. So interesting yet so confusing. We clearly have no control over what happens, even when we think we do. We do our best to try to have the good things happen to us and avoid all the bad things. While it would be fantastic if the goods were the only thing that existed, it doesn’t. I have not been feeling like myself lately, and … Continue reading Life.
When you meet someone what to you see? Are you looking for something? Can you see something that isn’t there? We all have our own battles we sometimes don’t talk about. But many of us have chronic health illnesses that are not visible to the naked eye.

So when you do apply the KT Tape correctly, you are allowing the top layer of the skin … Continue reading Why I use KT Tape
Since running my marathon, it has been ridiculous. The first few days were fine. 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! But then my fibromyalgia started to flare up worse than usual. So there’s that. Here in Florida the weather tends to be funky, one day … Continue reading When running happens…
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
In running, especially training we discover our true selves. We battle a lot, against ourselves. We see our strengths and our weaknesses. No matter what anyone says or what they will post online, there are battling against something. No one is perfect and you need to remember that. There is no need to compare yourself to anyone else or try to be better than anyone … Continue reading I Can and I WILL
And My life isn’t a piece of cake, although it would be nice because I do enjoy cupcakes! But I do try my hardest to be positive and see the best in every situation because despite what they may be, you can find something positive in it. It seems for me, it keeps getting worse. My health keeps deteriorating and things just keep going from … Continue reading I am a dreamer.
Sometimes in life you can’t predict what will happen to you. Sometimes in life you surprise yourself. Bottom line, you never know what is going to happen. That is why you should always be unstoppable. Life is tough so why make it tougher? Lately it has been a ridiculously rough bump for me. Between the double seizures, and me falling and the recent findings in my … Continue reading Run the day, don’t let the day run you.
