**UPDATE** As of the last tally, including the ‘hood, this post, and the Facebook event, we are up to over 150 miles!!! That means over 150 people got out there and got active! So amazing! If we added up the total miles of everyone, I have a feeling we would be really close, if not […]

Here in Florida, we went from winter, almost straight to summer. Our spring, which usually lasts until the end of May, ended instead at the end of April. It’s the first week of May and already I’m finding myself running in that oppressive summer heat, which means a humidity of 80-90% and a temperature of 80 degrees and higher. Egad! It’s HOT!!

Instead […]

If there’s on piece of advice I can offer someone who’s thinking about running, it’s find a program and stick to it like glue. No matter how physically fit you are or aren’t, if you’ve never run and you try to do too much to soon, you’ll just end up injured, frustrated, and you’ll likely […]

    Choose You

    I’m guilty of it and you probably are too. Most women are, in fact.
    What am I talking about? Putting your own health on the back burner to attend to the needs (and, let’s face it, WANTS) of others. There’s laundry to wash, fold, and put away. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners to prepare. Sporting events, rehearsals, […]
