1st 5k of 2015

First 5k of 2015! – MPSD Race for the Future It was Friday night and I had truly NOT decided for sure if I would participate in a 5k in the morning. I knew I needed to get in a run in between the half marathon of last weekend and the half coming up this weekend.  I knew it was a good cause and the route would be different than the normal routes near me. This I really liked. Even {Read More}

I CAN!

I love, love, LOVE this verse!  I go back to it over and over, I even chant it when the running gets hard.  Sometimes its getting up that steep hill, sometimes it’s a quarter of the way into a long run, this past weekend it was keeping up the pace with my friend.   I know my God will always come through for me  and he always does!  When things get tough for you what do you do?  Is there {Read More}

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}

Hitting the Pavement Because???

Good morning!  I read a blog post from The Hungry Runner Girl (great blog, you can check it out Here) yesterday and she asked a question on her blog and I thought I’d answer it in detail on mine. 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}

Adversity…..

Isn’t if funny how in the face of adversity that you come out with a different pair of glasses on. In a post about slowing down and enjoying our lives, a good friend of mine commented that she had had some health problems in 2014 and how it really opened her eyes and made her appreciate every day of feeling better.  She thanked God for her new outlook and she’s more determined to keep improving because of what all she {Read More}

In 2015 I want to Inspire

I’m not just talking about exercise either.  Ok so I have fell in love running an it’s  MY thing, maybe you can’t run, maybe you don’t even want to. That is OK!!!! It’s not for everyone and what works for one person may not be anothers “cup of Whiskey” as Frank Foster would say. Find what works for you.  Maybe it’s committing to taking a daily “Me Time” walk.   Just see where it goes from then on.  As you {Read More}
