Losing the weight of the mind…

My conversation with Kimberly with Yoga Pants Diary on extreme weight loss, skin removal surgery, losing the weight of the mind and creating the life you want to live.

The Pain of Running 100 Miles is Nothing…

Disclosure: I wrote this within the week after my race. I have modified it with a clear mind. I’m not looking for sympathy or any other sad feelings, but many people ask me all sorts of questions and this sums up the “big” questions other than the race itself. I am still working on the […]

Consistency isn’t one key to success, it’s the only key to success.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle Someone posed the question to me “How do you continually get up every morning to run & workout despite the time, the weather, and setbacks?” I’ve pondered this question for many days and thought about the “right” answer. Unfortunately, […]

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.

Your mind has been working to avoid pitfalls, fatigue, and pain. You haven’t eaten as much as you should in the past 24 hours. You are dehydrated and thirsty but […]

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 […]

“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 […]

It’s only been a year but it’s here!!!

Let’s do this! As I sit here and take a look back at the last year, I can’t help but think, just one year ago I was gearing up for my 2nd marathon. I was still fairly new to running, but I knew something big was taking control of my life… I was watching a […]
