Hip Hop Dance for the Win

I lost momentum again. I just didn’t want to.  I have no real reason not to work out.  I have the time, the resources and a sweet home gym. I was looking at Just Dance for the Nintendo Switch but just saw it as a waste of money.  Not that it’s not worth it, but…

Every Race has a Life Lesson

RNRSA – 2 Days to go

Ahhhh, two days until my 7th half marathon. I shouldn’t be “scared” since this is my 7th one but in reality I am scared. My mind tells me “be afraid” my heart and gut tell me “we got this!” When our mind and heart are not aligned it is a terrible struggle. One where we…

Runner’s Guilt: Mom, Wife &Work Duties

On the days I have “long” runs and at this point it’s anything longer than 30 minutes, I have serious runner’s guilt. And really it’s just guilt over everything; everything that is important to me. A feeling of letting others down, a feeling of making others sacrifice for my own needs. In reality – the…
