My daughter will be 6 years old in a few months. The years seem to slip away like a ballon from a child's hands. Other than my daughter and I, the house is full of boys, even our cat Ghost is a boy... and acts like one too. Watching birds is a like a sporting event to him. It's impossible to take a good picture or get his attention while he's watching the "game"!
Oftentimes my daughter and I end up spending alone time together while all of my boys do their "man" things. We love to do … [Read More...]
In the South Western United States we have excellent speed coaches, they're very inexpensive and plentiful in the Summer months. If you're looking to get faster on those trails, feel free to contact one...

When my package from Koss came to the front door, I was really excited. You see, I am fortunate enough to represent a company called FitFluential and through this affiliation, I have many opportunities to test out fitness related products such as the new FitSeries headphones by Koss.

There is nothing more annoying than having to stop what you are doing, especially a work out, to tie your shoe. Just ask my training partners, I can't tell you how many times I've gotten the eye roll because I made everyone stop so I could triple tie my shoe for the second time. I have also received the stink eye from my son's baseball coach when he quadruple tied my son's cleats due to my inadequate tying skills. Although I have come undone in a few races, thank goodness my laces never have. … [Read More...]
I don't think I've even talked about this, but I am running another marathon in three weeks.
I've had my eye on Mountain 2 Beach marathon since they launched it 2011, but we were living in Virginia at that time. Then last year I ran my first 50K around the same time. So this year, I signed up. I love local races for many reasons, but this one just seemed ideal, a gentle downhill course that starts in the mountains of Ojai CA. and ends at the beach in Ventura. It isn't perfect timing, … [Read More...]
Just one day after returning home from Boston, I received the incredible news that I was selected to run on the Nuun Hood to Coast relay team! Talk about a dream come true, I have longed to be on this very special team for several years and now that dream is becoming a reality! I am so incredibly grateful and honored. I can't think of a better thing to do than to spend three sleepless nights with 19 other women doing the one thing that bonds us together: sharing our passion for running. I am so … [Read More...]
