Yesterday morning I sat at my laptop and cranked out a few blog posts, including this “Wordless Wednesday” post, only to realize a few hours later that it wasn’t Wednesday. Nope, it was only Tuesday. I guess I was really excited to get that post up, huh? That or maybe I am in a rain-induced [...]

I am thrilled to share with you guys that I have been selected to participate in the Verizon Health and Fitness Voices program! What does that mean? I am going to tell you! For the next 6 months I will be using 2 new devices to track and share my health and fitness journey. What [...]
Half marathon #11 is in the bag! This race also happened to be the first of 6 half marathons that I have on my race schedule this year. Xenia, Ohio is roughly an hour and 20 minutes away from Fleet Feet Columbus, where I met up with 5 Run DMC girls to head out.
