How to Customize a Workout Program Based on Your Body Type

Disney’s Enchanted 10K

Yesterday I took part in the Enchanted 10K, part of the Princess Half Marathon weekend. I was excited to do a different race and 6.2 miles seemed like a piece of cake after the Sarasota Music Half a couple weeks ago. And even more exciting, I was placed in corral A! Who knew I’d gotten…

Volunteering at the Princess Half Marathon Weekend

So this year I got to do something new at Disney’s Princess Half Marathon weekend. And I’m not talking about the race. I volunteered to work the Fit for a Princess Expo. I was stationed at the ChEAR Squad booth where I was giving the spectators their swag and wristbands. I was glad I’ve done…

Video: Sarasota Music Half Recap

Today I ran the Sarasota Music Half Marathon and it was much better than anticipated. I finished the race in 2:37:47, which was just three minutes from my personal record. I was shocked. I hadn’t trained at all for this race and I ended up doing much better than expected. Aside from how unexpectedly good…

Review: Zim’s Crack Creme

Last year I reviewed Zim’s MaxFreeze. Well the good people at Zim’s have provided me with their Crack Creme to review. This came just in time! For a lot of people the winter months mean cracked skin due to the cold temperatures. Although the temperatures have gotten colder in Florida, it’s not as cold as…

Sarasota Music Half Training: Week 11

Now I’m freaking out. The half marathon is next week and I am not prepared. I have totally slacked for this entire training process. I don’t know what I’ve gotten myself into. This sounded like such a fun opportunity and I’ve basically ruined it because I haven’t trained. How am I expected to get through…
