Mercedes Marathon

*Disclaimer: This post is full of pictures… I would apologize, but I’m not sorry. I documented my entire first marathon.* I spent Saturday hanging out with all the Nuun Hood to Coast people that came in to run the race… we had so many laughs! It was a great reminder of why I love that […]

A Random 15 Things…

Half Marathon #16… Magic City Half

On Sunday, I ran my 16th half marathon. Which is crazy to think about. I’ve run Magic City since it’s inaugural race when it was called the Ruben Studdard Run. This year the switched the course around and had it start and end at the new Regions Field where the Birmingham Barons play baseball. I […]

Guilt. The Unmentioned Grieving Emotion.

Following the days of Mom’s death, I took on the role as planner and caregiver. How was my step dad? Did he have enough food? Was he sleeping? How was my Granny dealing with it? What about my sister? And the girls? And John? I was just so numb to what had happened, that all […]

October 26th, 2014. An Unfair Reality.

I’ve thought a lot about how to start this post. But the truth of the matter, there isn’t an easy way. How do you start telling a story about losing one of the most important people in your life? I guess I will start at the beginning. Two and a half weeks ago, I went […]

Alabama vs Florida

If you’ve been around here for long, then you know we are HUGE Alabama football fans. With both of our new jobs, Saturdays off are pretty nonexistent, but we were both able to swing it to make it to the Alabama/Florida game. It started like it normally does for us.. entirely too early to set […]

Dega Half… AKA What Happened??

  Half marathon number 15 is in the books… and it probably has taught me the most about running. I feel like I’ve had this sub 2 monkey on my back forever and that I was psyching myself out about it. I did all of my runs and my speed work accordingly. So, I was […]

Running Lately

Getting out of my running funk was a bit of a struggle, but I’m happy to say that it has happened. Hood to Coast helped, as well as signing up for the next sub 2 half attempt at Talladega. I must say, Talladega will be warm but I think a cool front is moving through […]
