The shakes that reduce muscle inflammation, and give your body the nutrients and minerals it needs? Yeah that one! Well they are going to do something pretty epic for 2016 and I get … Continue reading #BestLifeProject Share the love
Training for the New York City Marathon continues. I am doing my best to head out onto the trails but it’s been difficult. Since the heat here has been in the crazy triple digits, I have no choice but to run indoors. As crazy as it sounds, because I have been living in FL almost all my life, I don’t do well running in the … Continue reading “The best is yet to come..” -Frank Sinatra

Since I last wrote, last week, a few things have changed. I was put on a strict medication routine that I wasn’t too happy about at first. The medicines make me drowsy and sleepy. So the first few days on the medicines all I did was sleep. Had trouble sleeping at night though because the pain would kick in. I still spent a lot of … Continue reading I can, I will.

I enjoy doing virtual races as it keeps my training fun. It gives me something to look forward too and adds a little change in the training. I know many who train and get bored or get … Continue reading “I just felt like running.” -Forest Gump
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. 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
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
The Wine and Dine Half Marathon is just 19 days away! I can’t be more excited for this race! It will be my second night race being I have already ran the Tower of Terror 10-miler in the past.

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
