December 2017 Goals

Hello from my new corner of the Internet! I am writing a long post about the change, but it’s a lot to talk about and I’m still working through it all. I actually wanted that to be my first new post on this space, but […]

Thoughts and Prayers Aren’t Enough

Thoughts and Prayers Aren’t Enough

I had a post ready to publish for today, but sharing about my goals for the month hours after yet another deadly shooting in our country felt like white noise. While this isn’t a political blog, this is an issue that impacts all of us. […]

Feeling the Grief

Feeling the Grief

My last post was seven weeks ago. It’s not that I haven’t had things to say for almost two months. If anything, I’ve had too much to say, but I simply couldn’t find the words. Over the last couple of months, I thought about shutting […]

5 Reasons to Join a StepBet

5 Reasons to Join a StepBet

I am always on the lookout for ways to incentivize my health and fitness. I might be a health coach and personal trainer, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love a little extra motivation! One of the recent things I’m obsessed with is betting on […]

5 Podcasts to Listen to While Running

5 Podcasts to Listen to While Running

For years, I listened only to music while I was working out. I curated some killer running playlists. I can crush a finely tuned balance of driving rock beats and energizing pop ear candy. I’ve listened to podcasts in my day-to-day life for a couple […]

After the half marathon in Nashville, I felt very undecided about how to approach the River Bank Run. I registered for the 25k several months ago, maybe as early as January. When I finished the half marathon two weeks prior, I really didn’t know if […]

Race Recap: Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Half Marathon

Race Recap: Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Half Marathon

A year ago, I registered for the 2017 Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Half Marathon. At the time, I was running less than ten miles a week at most. Apparently, I had high hopes for a comeback because I registered with an expected finish time of 2:15, […]

Goodbye, Gram

Goodbye, Gram

We plan, God laughs, right? Or, so the saying goes. In so many ways, 2017 was off to an amazing start. I spent most days with a big smile on my face, feeling over the moon happy about my life. A month ago, I wrote […]

Whole30: Final Thoughts

Whole30: Final Thoughts

I (sort of) did it! I survived my first Whole30 challenge! Previous posts: I’m Doing the Vegetarian Whole 30, Week 1, Week 2, Week 3 and Week 4. Technically, I didn’t finish Whole30 because I added grains back into my diet the last week. But, I was at the […]
