The Road to πŸ’―

I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting the past week. Actually, it’s been an emotional couple of weeks. Between processing the loss of my friend Robert Merriman and missing the Jackpot Ultra Running Festival — it’s kinda left me in a bit of a funk. Not a fun place to be. I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason. I’ve seen God’s hand in my life too many times to deny that….

Running from here onto July …

Hallelujah! January is now over. I absolutely hate January — it’s pretty much the Monday of months. I love the overturn into January from the holidays, but after January 1st — it just sucks. It’s somewhat because of the winter blues, but something horrible usually happens to me or others I love during the month. I have had a number of family members either pass away or get really sick during January — and it…

Time to commence — Operation Half Ass

I love organizing my fitness. I love mapping it all out. And, I love working toward those goals. Working toward these goals — whether their weight-loss or running related — is something I love and need. After my ‘More Grease for Greece’ campaign that I did from August to November to help me lose 35lbs. with the keto diet, I feel the need to hone in on my diet and workout regime, especially now that…

Thyroids, Ankles & Blurry Eyes …

Yesterday was a marathon of a day. A day of doctor appointments. I find it easier to just take a day off from work and get as many doctor appointments in as I can. I made appointments for the orthopedist, endocrinologist and optometrist — also known as the foot doctor, thyroid doctor and eye doctor. It really was a marathon of a day. My first appointment was with the orthopedist at TOSH Foot & Ankle…
