    Actually had an entire day to spend with my husband! He won't workout with me so this morning I convinced him to make breakfast while I was working out.

  • Run my little minions, run!

    2/18/2018 3:12:03 PM, by TIKITAMI

    When my daughter suggested a 10K trail run with her toddlers I immediately accepted. At two years old her girls are already avid runners and I love that this will be a memory they will have growing up, running with their nana.

    So tomorrow I'm off to my mothers for two nights so I thought I'd do my weekly blog today rather than too early tomorrow.

I am a vegetarian (pescatarian) as I do eat fish (due to protein issues) and I am a distance runner. IS THIS EVEN A POSSIBLE OPTION FOR ME???? When I asked my sister... Read more

    I started on Spark as a way to get my bad eating habits under control. Losing a few pounds was a HUGE plus within this initial plan.
