Rock n Roll New Orleans Recap 2015

Rock-n-Roll New Orleans Recap 2015 Half Marathon This is my review of the Rock-n-Roll New Orleans Recap 2015 Well our weekend started out wet Friday.  Trying to load up the RV in nasty weather wasn’t much fun, but we got it all in.  It did quit raining once we got on the road so that was good.

That one comment…..

I’ve done a couple scrapbooks {Read More}

I CAN!

Mississippi Blues Half Recap

Mississippi Blues Half Recap 2015 Mississippi Blues Half Recap 2015 Friday was full of uncertainty, excitement and fear as I thought about the race before me tomorrow. I had looked at the elevations, had heard others talk about the hills.  I still have Tupelo in the back of my mind.  For me Tupelo was hard….. period.   It was hot, humid and I was not prepared enough for it and therefore I did not do as well as I had hoped {Read More}

Her question was: Do you hit the pavement for a run or go to the gym because: A) You aren’t happy with what you look like and you are chasing after changing your body. B) You want to give your body {Read More}

What Running has taught me about Dedication & Discipline

What running has taught me about Dedication and discipline.  It’s like the ol’ saying: USE IT OR LOOSE IT  Wait, No not that…………… Yea, thats more like it! 🙂 It’s just like any other muscle if you use it, it gets stronger if you don’t you loose it.  I’m not only talking about physical but mental as well. Our society teaches us from a very young age if it feels good do it. We don’t give ourselves enough credit and {Read More}
