Just thought I would give an little update on what is going on in my life. In my last post, I said I was going vegetarian, just for a week, just to see what it's like. Well, it's been 18 days, and I feel great! I'm gonna keep with this for a whi... Read more

Recap of the last week
Well, whether or not you read my last blog...I've been trying this new technique. It's called, going slow. All my life I've been rushing from one point to the next. For example, one day I found this neat looking coin in my wallet. I promptly ord... Read more
Breaking the 'reset routine'
Well it's the first of the month, and sure enough after abandoning Spark for the past week or so, I'm back ready to correct all the mistakes I've been making recently. This is a routine. I start off the month, or the year, or even the week with ... Read more
Finally, a blog about something other than running!
Okay, so if you have read ANY of my other blogs, you have probably figured out by now that I thoroughly enjoy running. It is one of my favorite activities. However, this blog is about the one thing that I actually enjoy MORE than running. That w... Read more
Running through the excuses
So yesterday I couldn't take it anymore. I HAD to go for a run. I was dieing to! It had been almost a week since my last run; I was finally back home and wanted nothing more than to conquer those running routes that were once tied to my marathon... Read more
So, I am worried that I may be nursing another running injury.
See, what I have learned is that most running injuries aren't that obvious. Unless you actually break or twist something, a running injury can be somewhat vague. Since there are... Read more
Back to the grind
Well, April was quite an eventful month. But now I am back home and no longer have any training to worry about, or fundraising to do. In fact, I don't really have anything on my plate right now (not even a job!) so I think it's time to start thi... Read more
Two races, a couple weddings, and a baptism!

Okay, I think I got this
Yesterday was St. Patty's day and I did not track my food. Ha ha. With good reason. But alas, I woke up yesterday 1 pound lighter and have been pretty good about my food for the past week, one day isn't going to hurt. So my husband (who is named... Read more
Frustrated with myself
I have been experiencing an insomnia spell as of late. See, I have been trying to go to bed at a reasonable hour, like around 10 or 11 (opposed to the 1am or 2am on my current routine) That way I can wake up, bright and early, before the sunrise... Read more
What is running doing to my body!
Am I getting old?? I am only 26 (and a half) but sometimes my body feels so old. I would love some input on this one from other fellow runners, and perhaps anyone that exercises.
Before I started training for this marathon, I never had very... Read more
