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…

2016 Wine & Dine Half Marathon

Another half marathon in the books! Disney’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon has always been my favorite. I used to love running at night through the parks and the beautiful Christmas lights. It was awesome. And now, I hate to say it, but this new course and set up made me really dislike it. I…

Wine & Dine Training: Weeks 4-6

The time has come to run the 2016 Wine & Dine Half Marathon in Walt Disney World. Training has been minimal, but still more than I did before the Disneyland Paris Half Marathon, so I’m sure I’ll be fine. Here’s how the past three weeks have gone… Week four only had one training run. It…

Wine & Dine Training: Weeks 1-3

Since returning home from the Disneyland Paris Half Marathon, I’ve been working harder at getting out and going for runs. After all, I have four more half marathons coming up between now and April, so I need to get my training in. The first of those is Disney’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon. This will…

900 Nike+ Miles

So I should have made this announcement after the Disneyland Paris Half Marathon since that’s when I hit 900 miles on Nike+, but instead I ran two more times bringing the total to 908.8 miles. Since I have not really been running, it has been over a year since I hit 800 miles with the…

September Races

September brought two special races for me: Hockeytown 5K and Disneyland Paris Half Marathon. The Hockeytown 5K was the first race and it took place in Detroit, MI on September 10, 2016. When I signed up for this race I planned on using it to check my race pacing for the half marathon. However, I…

#ZINCON2016

Holy moly! I can’t believe Zumba Convention has come and gone again. Those four days were so awesome and fun. I learned a lot and I’m so excited for the opportunity to teach again. And actually, I’m super excited to teach Aqua Zumba! My first day of convention, I took the Bollywood Obsession class and…

The Farewell Season…with a Run!

I don’t think it’s come up on my blog much, but I am a HUGE hockey fan. I grew up just outside of Detroit and spent my youth watching the Detroit Red Wings. This upcoming season in the NHL is there last at Joe Louis Arena, the arena I grew up going to. So when the organization announced a 5K run kicking off the farewell season with the finish line at center ice, I knew I had to sign up.

Hello Nike+! I’ve Missed You

So, in addition to my lack of blog posts I have also been experiencing a lack of running. Yesterday was the first time I opened my Nike+ Running App since March…MARCH! Not good considering I have a 5K and two half marathons coming up. So I decided that opening that app was step one of…

Long Time, No Post…

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I wrote a post. Where did May go? The worst part is, I had posts planned for the month of May and nothing got posted. So much for that planning goal, right? Now it’s June and a chance to get back on track with blogging,…

runDisney’s Virtual Races

runDisney announced their first virtual race series, and I got sucked in. First off, I’m sure many of you are asking what a virtual race is. Well, it’s a race that you get to run on your own time anywhere you want. This means whenever I feel the need to go out and run a…

CycleBar in Sarasota

Forget everything you know about spinning. CycleBar is a whole new kind of cycling class and it’s amazing. I think the last time I took a spinning class was probably three years ago, and while I have a bike and will ride for fun, I hadn’t gone “cycling” for sometime, so I was excited to give…
