Walk to Eliminate

I’m currently in New Orleans for the Circle K International Convention and this morning we were up bright and early to walk for Eliminate. A big project in the Kiwanis Family right now is the Eliminate Project. This project is designed to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus from the world by 2015. This morning members…

Get Ready for Some Heat

Today I went for a quick 1.25 mile run. It was a nice day out and I just wanted time to clear my head. I didn’t have long for a run because the movers were coming to bring our new couch and chairs so I needed to make sure I was home. I was really…

Running with my Bestie

Yesterday was the Detroit River Days Festival 5K!  My best friend, Mert told me about it so I got to do the race with her and her boyfriend.  It was loads of fun.  Mert was excited because made her personal record during this race.  And, despite the heat, I finished in 32:11, just 1:04 slower…

Rain, Rain Go Away

So it’s a gross, rainy day here in Michigan. My friend Mert and I were planning on going for a run together today to train for our 5K on Saturday, but given the current weather conditions, we’ve decided that we’ll go on Wednesday instead. I don’t like running in the rain. Anyways, my training for…

When You Fall Off the Horse, You Get Back On

This week started out good.  My first (and only) run of the week felt great, and Pilates was really good as well.  Then I fell of the horse. I had such high hopes for the week, but I haven’t gone for a run the past 3 days, and my eating habits have also gotten worse….

Just a Little Humor

Found this on another runner’s blog and it made me laugh. Totally feel like this somedays.

I Wish I Ran Like This All the Time

I had a fantastic run today! It was the first run since I hurt my knee.  I was just going to do an easy two mile run.  I got on the treadmill at the gym and it felt great.  I had no problem running 1.3miles straight.  I wasn’t even going to take a break, but…

I’m Back!

It’s been close to a week since I updated…rare for me.  Well, on Wednesday last week I hurt my knee running.  Nothing bad or anything like that, it just needed to have some time to rest.  So I pretty much took the whole week off when it came to working out. Today was my first…

Missing Some Miles…

Today was a rest day (according to the schedule I set for myself), but my mom was going for a walk and asked if I wanted to join her.  I figured why not…if I did, I could have some ice cream tonight! So we go for our walk and I use my Nike+ sensor in…

Oh What a Run Can Do!

I had a pretty crappy start to my day.  I had a dentist appointment.  I’m not a big fan of going to the dentist because I’ve never had good teeth.  Just wasn’t blessed that way I guess.  So I got there and they did x-rays, cleaned my teeth, and all that fun stuff.  Then I…

I’ve Had Better Months

It’s no secret that I haven’t been doing my best with working out in the month of May.  I went the whole first week without running and barely did any work the second week.  I decided against doing the 10K I originally planned on and I haven’t got myself on a very good training schedule…
