Lately I have been on a tough road. I always have hope that one day all my illnesses would just stop, but the way things are going….it doesn’t seem that way. My conditions only seem to be worsening and days are only getting tougher to push through. I do wake up every day in pain and I barely sleep at night, but every day is … Continue reading There is magic to train for
So another runDisney marathon weekend has come and gone. Weather was unpredictable as usual because well…..Florida. Last year, it was 30 something degrees and this year we were in the 80s. Horrible running conditions in my opinion. But I was happy that I was staying in part of Hilton Bonnet Creek‘s marathon weekend. Have you heard or stayed there for a race yet? It is … Continue reading Running to Hilton Bonnet Creek

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

But with the Walt Disney World Marathon almost a week away, I am also prepping for my traditional stay. By that I mean, turning my race weekend, into a fun … Continue reading RUNcation!
What does the word “impossible” mean to you? For me it means a challenge that I gladly accept. Almost my whole life, many have told me that what I do is impossible. There is no way that someone with the severity of my Scoliosis can not be a runner, much less a marathoner. Having Scoliosis from a very early age did change how I saw … Continue reading Impossible is nothing.
In case you missed the first half of my Goofy Challenge recap, you can find it here. After we ran the half marathon, we headed back to the resort to get prepared for the marathon. My PT, Joe came back to finish working on me and see how bad I was. I was actually feeling OK and not that sore or pained. The only trouble I was … Continue reading Goofy Challenge the EPIC race.

YAY! I’m so excited and pumped to begin training for my first full marathon!!! As you know the farthest I’ve gone has been 13.1 miles. I must admit, I am a little intimidated by the 26.2 tag that comes with the full marathon. When I ran the half marathon back in January, I did struggle. Half way through I was attacked by pain, I was … Continue reading Training for my first full marathon begins!!
