50 Miles of Bliss!

I can not possibly put into words the exact feelings I had about crossing the finish line of the NorthFace Endurance Challenge in DC over the weekend. I trained long and hard for this event. I doubted myself over and over again during the weeks leading up to 4/28/18 but knew I had to give it a go. 

Driving down to DC the night before the race with my husband and friends I started to feel excited but my nerves were still high. I was thrilled that my husband and Kelly came down to support Miki and I as we attempted another 50 miler. 
Lets back track for a moment. In 2016 I trained for a 50 mile event that had a 14 hour cut off. The race was a total wash. It rained the entire week before the race and then the whole duration of the event. The trail conditions were so poor that it made running extremely difficult for me. I spent hours and hours walking a sliding in the mud. My attitude was terrible. I had such high hopes for that event and they were crushed by poor weather. I crossed the fin…

Train Hard

I'm about 10 weeks out from race day. I have been training consistently for the past few weeks. I feel pretty strong. Ok correction I was feeling pretty strong until I went to the gym Monday and now my legs are thrashed and Im sore as hell! I have not been going to the gym much and that showed big time after my workout.

Monday at 8am I went to Thomas DeVietro Strength & Condition Monday is squat day. I felt great during the workout but two hours later when I was due to run my scheduled 8 miles for that day my legs were feeling it. Needles to say my 4 mile yesterday was pretty darn tough as well. Im glad I went to the gym. Im plan to go again next Monday.



I am participating in the Run Ranger Run event this month with Tom and a few other members of the gym. Our goal is to run 565 miles for the month. My personal run goal for the month is 160 miles. Id also like to raise atleast $250 dollars for GallantFew? Im excited to a part of Run Ranger Run I know it will help keep me on sch…

New Year! New You!

Yes I know we hear this year after year! What if this year we did actually stick to our resolutions and we did actually incorporate some healthy changes into our lives? For you what would that change look like? For me I really need to get back on track with my eating. To be exact I need to cut out sugar from my diet, refined sugar. I am telling you when I eat sugar I wake up feeling hungover. If you know me you know I dont drink so feeling hungover is not something that I want to feel.



I have set a few goals for myself for the year. I like to share them with others to help hold myself accountable.

1. Run another 50 miler.
2. Become fully Self Employed.
3. Practice Yoga more.
4. Run the Grand Canyon
5. Be more peaceful.

For each one of these goals to become my reality I need to create actions steps. For the running goals I have training plans. For the financial goals I have milestones I need to make in my doTERRA business before I am able to leave my day job. For the spiritual goals I …
