A Little Sweat Ain't Neva Hurt Nobody

In October 2013, I accepted that I would not be spending my Saturday mornings as I had hoped… I had to find some other way to occupy myself. Naturally, I registered for several distance races. My goal at the time was to complete a different race every week for 13 weeks straight. That didn't quite happen, but I'm still running as many races as I can. For now, it looks like 2 per month (one being a half). Someday I'll run 13 weeks straight. 26 weeks would be great. 52 weeks would be awesome! ...

and I will attract the love I deserve.
All will work out as it's meant to.
It's hard most days,
but I just have to trust in the universe.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm not gonna say it was "better" than king cake, but the colors made me happy, lol! No one around here sells filled king cake anyway so I had no temptation to indulge.

Hey! I really want to thank you for my goodie and for helping me out in my time of need. Just as an update, my boyfriend and I have worked out a plan now that will make everything alright. I just really wanted to thank you and let you know that if you ever need anything then I am here for you as well. It amazed me to see that just from being on this site and venting when I felt like everything was going down hill fast, I got the support and inspiration to keep my head high. emoticon
