Thank you for telling me no…

I should have never become a good writer and runner… Who would have thought the two best stress reliefs I would ever have would be what I was least talented at growing up? I was in Kindergarten when my best friend ran farther and faster than me because he drank chocolate milk. I was in […]

10 Tips to Control your Holiday Feast

Don’t blow the last 6 months of progress just because you have an excuse to… We are headed into my least favorite time of year… The holidays are filled with overeating, candy, food gift baskets, parties, booze, and everything else I fight off every day… Don ‘t get me wrong, I love the positivity surrounding […]

Halloween Hangover…

So you had a bad day… UGH! I can already feel the roughness of the Holidays upon me… It starts with Halloween Candy, moves to a huge Thanksgiving feast and then to Christmas Dinner. The overeating, the chocolate, the endless amounts of sweets. I am not looking forward to the next two months. This is […]

Going Through the Motions…

I wasn’t thrilled about waking up at 3am today… I was tired from the weekend, my body is exhausted, sore and Crossfit was the last the thing I wanted to do today… But, I woke my tail up, got some coffee, got dressed and went to work on myself… Let’s just say it wasn’t my […]

I hope you fail…

WHAT?! Why would I want you to fail?! “Persistence is the missing component to success.” No I’m not ruthless. No I don’t get a guilty pleasure out of the pain of others. No I don’t like to see the disappointment of others when they don’t reach their goals. No I don’t want to be better […]

It’s Cold… So WAKE UP AND RUN!!!

So. It’s here… My 9 months of winter running has showed up early and now that 3AM alarm looks even worse to me… 32 degrees (Fahrenheit) wasn’t the funnest and definitely not when it’s the first week of September! Someone asked me how I stay motivated to keep getting up early and running in the […]

I can’t take it anymore… Just set HIGH GOALS!!!

Look. Don’t listen to the B.S. of working toward “realistic” goals. I can’t stand when people say you should only work toward something that you think is “achievable”. I have read a lot on goals. I study them, set my own and I teach how to set and work toward goals. If there is one […]

“IF” is a little word with a BIG meaning

Don’t forget- We are all beginners at some point. “Every champion was once a beginner that refused to give up.” “If” is a little word with a BIG meaning! My dad used to tell me this. Growing up I always had an excuse about something. Why I didn’t get my homework done, or why I […]

Addiction- Food, Drugs and Running

It’s 3:30 pm and I’m having the same conversation with myself I have every day. Should I eat a piece of candy? Should I walk across the street to the convenience store and buy a can of chew? Or should I just sit here and suffer the mental headache that comes with the constant battle […]
