A Free Snack Guide

Enough with all the running talk…let’s talk about food for a second. I recently had a friend from the gym launch her free snack guide online that I wanted to share with all of you. Her name is Katie Sampayo. I first met Katie when she was going through her SoulBody Barre certification to teach…

Everglades Half Recap (Finally)

 I know you’ve been waiting patiently, but I’ve finally got around to writing a recap of the Everglades Half Marathon. I’m actually going to do kind of a weekend recap since this was a destination race and lots of good stuff went down. Saturday (Race Day): Race outfit ready to go. Ciele hat, November Project…

#OptOutside

I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving and were able to spend quality time with your family and friends. This is one of my favorite times of year for so many reasons.   Thanksgiving really kicks off the holiday season and gets me super excited about Christmas. I finally have an excuse to sing…

Last Weekly Recap…Last Half

A Minor Setback

I hope you all had a great weekend. As for me, the weekend was amazing (more to come on that later), but these past few weeks haven’t exactly gone as planned. What does that mean? That means the Richmond Marathon this weekend just isn’t going to happen. I have decided to drop down to the…

What Inspires You?

In-spi-ra-tion: the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. I’m sure you can already guess what this post is going to be about and that is INSPIRATION. Living in Charm City I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of such an incredible fitness community. A community that…
