LAFitExpo {Part 3}

Jerome Ferguson

What I wanted to bring you was a nice, orderly breakdown of the expo weekend. All the exhibitors, all the classes, all the competitions I got to see. My new BFF shhh, she’ll figure it out soon enough behaved like a grownup so you’ll want to check out her recap here. Being my first FitExpo, it kinda went down something like this: No shame in my fan girl game. Not even a little. We had early entry into the expo, and {Read More}

LAFitExpo {Part 2}

Pumped Up Cakes

Hi friends! I’m trying not to give you the big photo dump of my weekend at the LAFitExpo. But sheesh. Mind. Blown. My friend Marlo came with me for the weekend and even though we met through running, our fitness paths are taking us two different directions. I’m all about them gains these days, she’s still running and coming from a weight loss/bootcamp background. Regardless, there really was something for everyone and motivation to keep you moving forward in your {Read More}

LAFitExpo {Part 1}


I came across an old post the other day, from a few years back, where I’d finally come to the conclusion that I had become a runner. Over the next few years, my little space here on the interwebs was filled with posts about my training, races, and everything under the sun related to running. While I keep saying I’m done with running, I’m not sure running is done with me. While I pretend the struggle isn’t real try to figure that {Read More}

Going Back to My Roots


I’ve gone back, people. I got bored and I think this is what my original color is, but it’s been so long. Ha. After spending a good part of 2014 between injuries and recovery, it was time to sit down and figure out what the heck I was doing with myself. I love running. Or do I? I do. But it’s hard. But I do. But it’s work. But I still really want that sub2 half. But I really want to be stronger, too. {Read More}

Run Disney Star Wars Weekend

501st Selfies

Grab a cup of coffee, this is gonna be a LONG post, but it’s been a week and if I don’t do a dump now, it ain’t gonna happen. Last year I hopped on the crazy train with everyone else and signed up for this weekend at Disneyland. Did I mention it was the inaugural STAR WARS race weekend? Um, heck yes. With everything going on lately, however, I was feeling pretty stupid trying to tackle three races over the next three days. {Read More}

Thanks and #ThisGirlCan


Can I just say what a blessed woman I am? Honestly it rings true just as much today as it did when we were going through the muck of it all, but your texts, messages, and comments just leave me speechless. Part of me is somewhat waiting to see (or expecting?) what’s going to happen next, but all I can do is keep moving forward and pray for the best outcome. Moving on… I’ve been seeing everyone’s recaps from 2014, {Read More}

Transparent Tuesday {Life Lately}


Once upon a time, there was this girl. She. had. no. clue. But she had a boy. Then she and this boy made some kids. They started with this heart breaker. And man, has he been a heart breaker. He’s determined, stubborn, strong willed, and always right just like his mama. In the past year or so, my world has gone from this: To this: Some years days, parenting really sucks. You do what you can, the best you know how, but ultimately {Read More}

Fitwall: The Numbers Game


Disclosure: This post is sponsored by FitFluential, LLC on behalf of FitWall Y’all know how much I dig my Polar, and I totally geek out over numbers and data when it comes to workouts and measuring progress (Except the scale. Scales are pointless in giving you any helpful body composition numbers). My first Fitwall workout was awesome, but because I rolled in right as class was starting, I didn’t get to sync up and get my personalized FIT Factor for the {Read More}

Fitwall: Fit in 40


Disclosure: This post is sponsored by FitFluential, LLC on behalf of FitWall Confession: I’ve been cheating on my gym. It’s been a little while since I picked a fight with a boy up a weight and I don’t even care. I’ve been all about this business lately: Each workout has a theme, but they are all about working the body as a whole rather than just pieces, so you’re burning more calories in less time while building strength, cardio, and {Read More}

Climbing Up the Wall


Disclosure: This post is sponsored by FitFluential, LLC on behalf of FitWall A while back I heard about this new (to me) company, FitWall. They had their mobile “wall” set up at our local running store for us to try out, so you know I had to give it a try. Oh, did I mention it was a super hero themed adventure run? Or maybe I just felt like Wonder Woman that day. Ha. It was pretty fun playing on {Read More}
