Yesterday was an amazing Christmas day! I made David and me a delicious breakfast and then I counted down the minutes until the kids would arrive. We had a wonderful afternoon of opening presents, playing games, and eating yummy food. I love my family so much. They are my world. And then they left and the… Continue reading A bump in the road
This past week, I was sick with a cold. Seriously? A cold in August? It kicked my ass. I didn’t work out at all and it couldn’t have come at a worse time, as I started my new job and I had things planned for the weekend: an 18-mile run on Friday and a 37-mile… Continue reading 18 miles

I recently started doing yoga in the mornings. I’ve tried yoga in the past, but I didn’t like it. I found most of the moves difficult to do and it just wasn’t something I was excited about doing. Last week I was digging through some of my old workout DVDs, trying to find a short… Continue reading Yoga….namaste.
