Goals for 2018

Looking forward to 2018, I’ve decided on one simple fitness goal this year. For 2018 my goal is consistency – to work out three days per week. I know it sounds silly to have a fitness blog and have that be my goal, but I really slacked off in 2017 so I want to correct…

2017 Fitness Accomplishments

This year has been a bit lacking in how much activity I’ve done, but there were still some great moments this year. 1. The Dark Side Challenge + the 5K: This year I did my biggest endurance challenge to date. I ran the Dark Side Challenge and 5K during the Star Wars race weekend at…

2017 in 2017

We did it! At the beginning of the year my mom and I signed up to complete 2,017 miles during the year 2017 and this month we completed that challenge! With two months left to go, it will be exciting to see how many miles we can achieve by the end of the year. While…

Time to Start Training

It’s finally entering fall in Florida and the early morning and evening temperatures are getting to the place where I can finally run outside again. Which is good because I haven’t been running at all. I’m hoping in 2018 to get my half marathon time down since I realized a couple days ago my fastest…

Where in the World?

For those of you that have been following my blog, you’ve probably been wondering where in the world I’ve been…no posts since April?! Well I don’t think I ever shared this, but I was promoted at my day job at the beginning of the year and in April we entered our busy season, which caused…

Race Day Checklist

The pastĀ half marathons I’ve ran I’ve forgotten something important for my race, so I figured with the Star Wars Half Marathon weekend a week away, I’d post the top fiveĀ items needed for race day. Charged GPS Watch: Yes, it sounds obvious, but I have forgotten it on more than one occasion and have resorted to…

Run the Year: 300 Miles

This week I hit 300 individual miles on my Run the Year challenge. Between my mom and I, we have over 600 miles and are totally on track to hit 2,017 miles by the end of the year. The next 100 miles should come quickly with the Star Wars – Dark Side weekend coming up….

Run the Year: 200 Individual Miles

I logged on to my Run the Year account today and noticed on Monday I hit 200 individual miles! Between my mom and I, we have over 400 miles for the year which puts us ahead of what we need to hit 2,017 miles by the end of the year. With more races planned, it’s…

2017 in 2017: 100 Miles Down

Just wanted to give an update on my 2017 challenge now that I’m a couple of weeks into it. When I first wrote my post about 2017 goals, I mentioned the Run the Year challenge. This challenge is designed to help people become active and get as many miles in as possible during the year,…

Happy New Year!

So normally I write a post reaping my year prior to the new year starting, but that didn’t happen this year. Partly because there’s not much to recap. For the first time, I didn’t achieve a single goal I set out for in 2016. So much for writing goals down and sharing them with people…

Milestone: 300 Nike+ Runs

It was over two years ago that I hit 200 runs on Nike+. What does that tell you about my running habits? How about, they’ve been lacking? The truth is, not all of my run have been tracked over the past two years. For example, when I go to Orange Theory and run on the…
