    5 Steps to Run Again!

    Running has not always been a passion of mine. I distinctly remember as a young girl in P.E having to do the timed mile run, and man did I HATE doing that every year, thinking this is the worst thing ever! I always started out running (because I am competitive like that), but inevitably always ended up finishing somewhere near the back at a walk highly irritated. I never would have thought that as a grown women I would learn to love to run! With that being said I have found myself in a little bit of a rut. I was on a good trajectory after Sean’s first birthday to…

    First Race of the Fall Season!

    Hello Hello friends and family!! Ok so I have been a total slacker on posting about my fitness/running journey as of late. As we all know, life gets in the way and plans change from day to day. However! Today was a big day. I ran my first 5k of the season and probably in about a year!! I ran the 11th annual Go Run ( Go for Gynecological Oncology).

    Running Update 8/2/18

    Ok, for starters I know I haven’t updated anything since my last running post. HAHA! (sorry!!) That’s because the week after committing to training with you all, I totally fell of the horse!! You know how it goes things happen and priorities change week to week. So needless to say I ran one time that week. (wishing I had the emoji of the girl with her hand on her face! haha) However, this past week I vowed to stay motivated. I found a strength training program on YouTube (Body by Amy) to go along with my running schedule. I did carve out time for two strength training work outs as…

    Time to Run Again

    Hello, Hello everyone! I have a question for all of you our there… What is it that brings you sanity, happiness, or joy even?! You know that thing that makes you feel like you again after you have cooked and cleaned and worked all day for your family.  For me that “thing” is RUNNING. It helps clear my mind and get my thoughts together. Its normally the only time i have about 30 minutes to myself! Running is my time to decompress and get away for a minute. As moms (and dads) I think it is very important for us to make time for ourselves. Maybe not everyday but once…
