training galore begins

oh man, and it’s back to training after taking a week off. after our long vacation, and then jumping into the lake nona 5k, my hamstring started to get really tight and sore. so i didn’t want to take any chances and decided to rest for a week. and let me tell you…while it was…

lake nona 5k

another weekend, another race is complete. and man, i was a little bit nervous for this one. even though it was just a 5k race, after not really running on vacation i didn’t really know how well the run would be. granted 80+ miles of walking on vacation still probably counts as a little bit…

we will rock you

and the battle of the bands 5k is now over. it’s always so surprising to me how sometimes it can seem like you are waiting forever for an event, and then poof it’s done. that’s how i always feel about running races, well aside from half marathons, i can definitely feel the duration time during…

ready to rock

well, only a couple more days until the battle of the bands 5k. i can’t believe how quickly this race creeped up on us, especially since we lost all sense of time with the hurricane that came through. it’s amazing how staying in your house and not going to a physical location for work can…

epcot f&w festival begins

well, hurricane irma has passed through the state of florida and thankfully my family and friends are safe and sound. we initially had no power, but luck was on our side and power has been restored and there was no damage to the property. we were definitely one of the lucky ones, and my heart…

prepping for the storm

well, needless to say my 26 day challenge has slightly gone off track with hurricane irma coming towards florida. i’ve grown up in florida, and trust me this is even a storm that i am slightly nervous for – so with that, we’ve been prepping the past few days. but, thankfully today i was able…

it’s back to running

as some of you may have seen on my instagram feed and stories, i decided to take a little break from the “running” portion of my 26 day challenge. after day 6, my knee was pretty swollen and hurting more than normal – so i decided to not be stubborn and listen to what my…

just keep swimming

well, i have survived the first 5 days of my 26 day challenge. holy smokes, am i starting to get sore already. but, it has totally been worth it to start getting more consistent with my running. and while i’m not going out and running 5 miles everyday – i really think these quick runs…

26 day challenge

hey followers! so i was recently challenged by my former bama gymnastics coach to take part in a 26 day challenge. but what does that mean, you ask? well, it can really mean anything you want it to. for me, it’s focused around “what inspires me to get out and moving!” and naturally (if you’ve…

mind over matter

my second five and dime workout of the week is complete! and it was exactly what i needed. i’ve come to find that running is my way to release stress and get out of my own thoughts. whether it’s a stressful day at work, knowing you have a million things to do, or just the…
