Life Overhaul In Progress

A lot has changed in my life, so I have come to the decision not to race this year. Part of it is financial and the other is that I just don't have the time to focus on properly training this year. That doesn't mean I am not on the train to Healthyville, though. I'm making HUGE changes in my life and I'm happier than I've ever been and more hopeful than I've ever been!

A lot has changed in my life, so I have come to the decision not to race this year. Part of it is financial and the other is that I just don't have the time to focus on properly training this year. That doesn't mean I am not on the train to Healthyville, though. I'm making HUGE changes in my life and I'm happier than I've ever been and more hopeful than I've ever been!

*I've started on a nutrition plan (set up by my friend who is a Registered Dietitian and Certified Personal Trainer and owns her own fitness studio).

* I am seeing a chiropractor for some pretty aggressive treatment to target pain from my accident and hopefully eliminate it and get my body feeling better.

*I have partnered with a company called Melaleuca that manufactures and sells safe, natural, environmentally friendly products. I am replacing ALL products in my home with Melaleuca, looking for environmental and personal health for myself and my family, as well as beginning a business and looking to work toward financial health as well.

*I am working on my relationship with my kids, post-divorce. I want to create a home life for them that is safe, loving, warm and full of peace.

*I am joyfully involved in a new relationship that is so much healthier. I have learned so very much from my failed marriage and applying those lessons to this new relationship has created an incredible dynamic that can't even be described. I am so indescribably happy.

I am far from perfect on any of these fronts, but I am ready to do this. So, let's go!

Hey, HEY! You are not a horrible role model. I went to the doctor with a sore foot and my absolute biggest fear was that she would tell me I'm not allowed to run again, and that's because of YOU!
I would never in a million years have started running if not for you. You're the best role model I've ever had.

Wanted to stop by and wish you a very Happy New Year! I'm finally back (it's been soooo long!) and just wanted to let you know that I've missed you and that I look forward to reconnecting. Hope you are doing well and that 2014 will be your best year yet!
