A Whole New Goal

It's been a long time since i've blogged and posted some of goals this year. In January I ran the most incredible race with my sister, the 2012 Disney Marathon Relay. It was the most exciting thing I've ran and I got to do it with my sister. Training is tough because of my crazy hours. I work nights and it's a very physically demanding job. Getting a few hours in the morning and than and hour or so before work has been incredibly hard to adjust. My diet hasn't cooperated with me. Do I eat at night like I do during the day? My day is peoples nights. I can't seem to take the any weight off, which would make a world of a differene. Not to sure what I can do, but I need to focus ahead of what I've always wanted to do since I've been in my 20's... Run a marathon, and I've never been more focused. Running the Disney with my sister inspired me, if that won't be my first one the Hartford just might. Gearing up for another 1/2 a marathon in March. Training has been rough, but I've been training. Well Until next time hopefully will be posting some new pictures of Disney and my new up coming races this year. Happy Running!

New Talent Show and New Goals

Wow it's been forever since I've blogged, but I've been working on some new music. Now, I can post my song but I'm trying to figure out how too.

Well I set myself some big goals this year. I want to run the Fairfield 1/2 marathon in June again as well as the Hartford full Marathon which I'm hoping Marathon Chris gets to joins me. I'm bit nervous, but excited. I plan to train a bit differnent but since my surgery and through all my tough starts there is something I've learned. Never beat yourself up if it didn't work out the first time, pick up yourself on your feet again and try it again and never ever give up. So looking forward to keeping everyone posted and updated. Happy Running!

A New Start

Well it's been awhile since I've blogged, I know on my last post I wanted to start up training again, but I a lot of things were going on and stress and not feeling well played a big part.

I decided to set myself a goal again, two things, run the Fairfield 1/2 Marathon again and also run a full marathon next year in October. (ING Hartford, CT marathon) So those are my goals. This week got to a great start, the weather for November has been beautiful, it was in the 60's and breezy. We have been very spoiled this fall, I just hope we don't have a winter like we had last year. The cold didn't bother me as much as the nice and snow, but lets see how it works out.

I'm excited to let everyone know my home based business is starting to kick off, slowly but it starting, looks like this month is going to be a good one.

I'm slowly feeling better physically and mentally so I can focus more on what I really enjoy.

My music on the other hand hasn't gotten as far as I'd like. I have recorded a few songs, and singing is something I absolutely love, but we will see what the future holds.

I hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving. I hope everyone enjoys spending time with the family and enjoy a wonderful meal as well.

Need to Hit the Road

Lately, I've been bummed out not being able to train like I want to. My business has picked up and my time is kind of limited. I've been feeling in a down mood a bit, but on a good note alot of things are coming up. My Talent Show for my church is on the October 17th. We are hosting another food drive this year. We are collecting non perishable food items for an entrace fee and we are giving it to our local families in need. I can't wait, I haveing a feeling it's going to be big hit. I have practice the Friday evening and I'm really looking forward to it. Also the ING Hartford Marathon is coming up and I offered to volunteer for Team in Training. I can't wait, it will be fun to cheer on a wonderful group that has been amazing supportive of so many close friends. Now just to figure out how to place my song on my page so everyone can listen LOL... yes it's pretty much done, but not sure how to put it on so everyone can listen. Once I figure it out in the next day or so I'll let you know.

Well happy training everyone, I could really use a nice run or bike ride.

Well, we booked a date for our next Talent Show at my church on October 17th. This years event is looking great, alot more adults will be participating. We are doing a food drive, so all who come to see the show, we will be collecting non perishable food items no money. Figured it's a great time of year for it since it's so close to Holidays. I'm getting more and more excited and looking forward to seeing what our church and friends show off their talent.

Also on October 10th, I will be the ING Hartford Marathon....

Incredible Weather & New Beginnings

Well, we have been having some amazing weather. It's right now 10 pm in the evening and in the 50's... mid 60's close to 70 by mid day. Perfect weather for a runner. Well, my friend Irene is an amazing woman, she been great to be with. She has been a very positive influence on me with working and sticking to it and also starting our new line of business with a wellness company. Now that my boys are in school, I can focus on what I need to. Using these products has given me the energy I need to do my workouts with and now, my friend is now joining me.
After all the problems I've had with supplements and gels I've had some issues with taking, these are the first ones I know that are gluten and sulfate free... soooo happy.

So, today I decided that I will volunteer by helping out at the Hartford Marathon , 1/2 marathon and 5K on October 10th for Leukemia Lymphoma Society. Something I would love to do for amazing group. There are 101 participants this race so exciting to see such a large group. It'll be a lot of fun and something I'm really looking forward too. I'll try to post as many pictures as I can on that day so I can post them.

Happy running folks!!
