Yoga Lesson – Self Control

Last week when I was in Yoga class the instructor talked about self-control.  Once again the topic she was focusing on was aligned with something I was focusing on in my life.  Just the week before I was signed up as a Team Beach Body Coach because it was time for me to get control…read more

What I Will Do To Feel The Way I Want To Feel

I was listening to one of the pod casts from Another Mother Runner and they were reviewing some of their best of episodes and Dimity McDowell mentioned a quote “What I will do to feel the way I want to feel”.  That is a beautiful quote.  I was having a shitty day the other day….read more

The Shoes Are Telling Me The Story

I have been having issues lately with some nagging injuries in my hip and knee. I finally decided to abandon a newer pair of shoes that I just started using on April 1 and went into a pair that is two models older. I run in Nike LunarGlides. The pair that I noticed problems with…read more

runDisney Virtual Running Shorts – Yellow Shoes Race Is Now In Session

runDisney announced a new race series available to you while you are at home and NOT in Disney.  At first I was skeptical about the idea.  Yea it’s another chance for Disney to make money off of people (us runDisney lovers especiall).  But it’s also another opportunity for you to get your family or friends…read more

New Yoga Poses

In Yoga we did some new poses and one of my favorites was the Inversion Pose.  This pose was fun to do because I wore my heart rate monitor to class so I could view my stats.  The inversion pose really drops the heart rate quite a bit!  That’s because you have your feet in…read more

Getting Rid of Excess

This week in my Yoga class (that I really wasn’t in the mood to go to) the instructor talked to us about Excess. Every week as class begins, the instructor speaks to us from the book The Yamas and the Niyamas.  Excess can rob us from our Joy. Excess can be in the form of sleep,…read more

Seasons Are Changing

Injury Update – Making A New Plan

It’s been a while since I blogged and there are several reasons for that.  One good reason was because I was on vacation with my family to Disney for Spring break and also to run the runDisney Star Wars Dark Side Challenge.  I’ll have more on the race specifics in a future post.  I have…read more

I’m On The Bench

Well, I haven’t run since March 30 and that feels like an eternity for me.  I haven’t even substituted my runs with a walk because I am being diligent about healing my tendinitis in my knee as fast and best as I can.  This has been very hard for me.  I need my fresh air…read more
