Are you Spartan Strong? GIVEAWAY – Special Ops Spartan Sprint

In addition to running everyday, one of my goals for 2014 is to experience different types of races. Yes, I have done the Color Run before (twice), and I have ran countless 5k’s, a 10k, and a half marathon. And I want to continue to work on that half marathon distance, as well as my 5k speed. But I also want to compliment that training with some strength training. I’m not talking about lifting a few weights; I want to challenge myself to do things that I honestly don’t know weather or not I can do!

Running Streak – Week 1 check in

Good morning! And congratulations on making it through the first week of the New Year! How are you doing on those resolutions?

Outside of my running streak, I haven’t really spoken much to what my other resolutions for this year are. I have a few that are personal that I will leave off of the blog for now. But I do want to share one other resolution of mine. This year I am going to make the effort to start being more honest with myself and others around me. I spend a lot of energy trying to please others, and I’m learning that it is usually not worth it. Have you experienced this? I waste a lot of time stressing over what others are going to think of decisions I make for myself. When I say ‘others’, I’m talking about people who I love. And I’m realizing that if I love them, and they love me, then it should not matter what decisions I make for myself. So that’s where I’m at. Like anytime we try to adjust our thought patterns, this is not going to be easy; but I believe it is manageable.

Anywho …. I wanted to drop in and see what kind of running goals everyone has for this coming year?

Monday’s Circuit Workout

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I spent the majority of my weekend finishing up Christmas shopping. But here are two other highlights:

1) Steven and I celebrated our two years of dating anniversary with sushi and wine! Sorry didn’t take any pictures because we didn’t take our phones out the whole time :)

A Short Workout is Better than None

This morning Steven and I left for South Florida to see his family for Thanksgiving. The car ride isn’t too terribly long and we normally make it fun with lots of music and car dancing :) Today we’re listening to alot of country music like Darius Rucker! I love his sound!!

Motivation Monday No. 8

Happy Monday afternoon!! I am writing this as I ride back into town from St Augustine (don’t worry I’m not driving, my chauffer Steven has the wheel!)

This weekend was the best! I will have a race review and recap of the weekend up shortly!! Although I should probably focus on adult things like unpacking, laundry, and dinner first when I get home; so please be patient with me, but I promise the review will be up this week!
