But running with friends is always better! When Carrie and I realized that we were both signed up for the Cellcom Full marathon, we knew that we would be spending more time to gether, getting in those long runs on Saturdays! Since the Seroogy 15k/5k race fell on the same weekend that we had 10 […]
Why do I run?
Why? Why, oh Why, do you run? This is a question that I am asked ALL THE TIME. Unless you are a runner, you may never understand why I, or any runner does. It’s personal. We all run for our own reasons! Someone can’t MAKE you run, once you find your WHY, the rest […]

Warrior Dash 2016, a family affair!
5 years ago when I did my first Warrior Dash, it was with a group of friends and a bunch of their friends. Each year, my husband joined me on the adventure, but it was not until 2013 that he actually joined the fun. He wasn’t planning on participating but after a friend of mine […]
22 Veterans too many take their life each and every day. We need to do what we can to lower this number!
Every Day, 22 Veterans commit Suicide. That’s 22 too many. On Friday, I had the opportunity to join over 500 other amazing, inspiration people to walk 22 miles. 1 mile for every Veteran who will take their life each day.
