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
Another year is going, going gone. And I am not sad to see it go. 2017 gave me a shitload of challenges. And yes, they are continuing and probably the only thing I will carry on into the new year. Unfortunately my declining health is the ongoing problem I will always carry onto the new year for the rest of my life but each year … Continue reading Thanks for the lessons 2017
Life gets tough at times and throws things your way you don’t expect or want to even accept, but sometimes you have no choice. Last August I had a small stroke and since then my body has been affected. While there wasn’t anything done permanently to my brain, there seems to be one lasting effect. When the nurses rushed me into a room, the right … Continue reading It’s your imperfections that make you…YOU
2017 has been ferociously mean, and yet I am grateful. I have learned lots through the months and the year is still not over. This year has not been my favorite, but that doesn’t mean that I am not grateful for it. We all know running in general isn’t easy, not even for the most talented, fit Olympian. Now throw people who have to fight … Continue reading Be OBSESSIVELY grateful

Each box is different … Continue reading Run into RunnerBox
Life is something serious isn’t is?!?! It definitely has a sense of humor and sometimes I don’t laugh..well I’m lying. I do. With the diagnosis of the permanent nerve damage in my legs, it’s been hard to get higher mileage or hell, even back to my faster pace lately. But yesterday I freaking killed it!!! I hit 9 miles and felt good about it. I … Continue reading Life is funny but I am strong.
Our lives are in constant motion, we are always on the go and we sometimes don’t eat right. And of course we are always looking for the ideal form of nutrition on the go that will give us exactly what we want, but that will also taste good and not like…well…nutrition. I have been using the Vega product line for years now. I love them for many … Continue reading What’s in your bag?
So fall is literally around the corner, which makes me happy for MANY reasons. One of the reasons is because I get to see the trails I run on change. Yes it isn’t as dramatic as in New York maybe, but the leaves do fall and change colors. I do love LOVE a good scenic route. But it will also bring cooler weather, or at … Continue reading Running the sweet life.
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.
