i want to have running bling like flavor flav

I just found out I was selected to support and promote the Mississippi Blues Marathon as part of the #BlueCrew. Whoo-hoo I’m so excited! I wanted to support and promote the 2016 Mississippi Blues Marathon because: I’m planning to run it with my friend Stephanie; we heard (repeatedly) while we were running another half marathon (weird,

feeling unstuck.

Last month I drove to Jackson Mississippi.  I found it after a missed turn, a frantic phone call and a bunch of tears on the side of the road in Mobile. I went to Mississippi to run the Magnolia Meltdown half marathon with my sweet, very fit and much younger (as in I have a

sea monkey challenge

Along with stepping up my miles for the fourth (or fifth?) half marathon I’m running in seven weeks, I’m doing the 30 Day Plank Challenge this month. I’m planking a minute-a-day for eleven days until the challenge calendar exceeds my ability, and I’m doing my planks on my hands; because I can. As with any

i have a smurf-blue belly button

I spent my Fourth of July at The Color Run. Hubs refused to run The Color Run with me because he said it was gay; which in my non-homophobe-marathoner-husband’s language I translated to mean he didn’t want to do it because it wasn’t a serious, hardcore, timed run and he didn’t want to be doused

yes, I peed in the car

I never thought in a million years I would hit the ground running with my new business. I’m so very thankful. Unfortunately my personal business success means a lot of ten-hour days, and sometimes six days a week. Plus I have a a kid graduating from the nest -er, just high school. So my little

My friend and coworker asked me if I had a pair of nail clippers yesterday so I dug in to my pocketbook aka little purse tucked inside a bigger purse/tote bag… And this is what I found: -a package of latex gloves *I’m allergic to latex WTH? -hand sanitizer -pieces of a shredded and possibly

Natural Expo Things

Let me start by saying that I get NOTHING from any of the brands I mention in this blog; not any discounts, or rebates. ZERO. I simply like the stuff I found. I’m just an average runner, who loves to eat, run, and shop; so race Expos are naturally my thing. And this last Expo

I’m Not The Only Crooked Lady

I’m a runner again. And it feels so good. Three months ago, while training for my first half marathon, I developed hip pain, which led me to a chiropractor; who told me I was as crooked as a circus freak, and I needed all these wood-pecker-type adjustments; a shoe lift, and oh yeah, I could

I Said In Sickness & In Health, Not A Full Marathon!

It’s been twelve days since we did the Rock n Roll half marathon in Nashville’s great Marathon Monsoon of 2013. And finally it feels like things are back to normal; we’ve rounded the corner; the fog has lifted; we’ve overcome the extreme post half-marathon fatigue. A few nights after the Half, in an obvious moment

Bleachy Coffee Makes 13.1 Light

Its 2AM. This is the morning of my first half marathon, and I can’t sleep because I’m worried. I’m not worried about the 100% chance of rain, thunder and gusty winds; I’m not worried that I can’t run the half marathon, and I’ll have to walk it; I’m worried about untimely-runner-defecation. Yep. That one. My
