Jess and Mike Tie the Knot

Last month, in early October, one of my dear friends got married at the Guy Harvey Outpost Islander Resort in Islamorada, in the Florida Keys.  You’ve seen Jess in several of my running posts and if you’ve been reading for a while, you may have even heard us chatting with the Another Mother Runner ladies on their podcast last year.  Jess was friends with my husband in college and she’s one of the many wonderful people that came into my life when we got together.

Braden’s 7th Birthday Party

Braden, being the sweet boy that he is, made his birthday party planning incredibly easy on me this year.  He loved his Pokemon party last year so much, that he wanted to do the same thing over again.  I eventually convinced him to at least pick a different theme, so he decided on Skylanders.  He wanted everything else exactly the same though.  Easy peasy!

2015 Gate River Run 15K

The 2015 Gate River Run 15K.. aka the really fun race in Jacksonville that was really freaking hot this year!  Not that it really mattered to me, since I didn’t have a time goal this year.  In fact, I went into this race determined to have fun and not stress over time so I made it my goal to PR in drink stops.  Spoiler Alert – I totally hit my goal!

2015 ZOOMA Florida 12K

You know how last year, I ran a marathon, then six weeks later I ran another marathon, then six DAYS later I ran a half marathon?  And I said I’d never do that again?  I lied.  Okay, I didn’t really lie.  I didn’t do the whole back to back marathon thing, and I didn’t run a half either, but I did run a race just six days after running a marathon.  And you know what?  I loved it!

2015 Walt Disney World Marathon

Sooo.. the 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon.  That was fun.  I’m going be be 100% honest here and say that if it weren’t for the fact that my husband and friends were running this race, there’s a good chance that it would have been my first DNS. READ MORE

2015 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

Just about a week and a half ago (heyyy look at me getting a post up in a timely manner!!), Adam and I loaded up the car and were headed to Orlando for the 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon weekend.  I debated which I should post first – a general overview of what we did over the weekend or a recap of the race.  I decided to talk about the weekend first.  As soon as we arrived at the Wide World of Sports, I met up with Andrea and we headed over to the Cigna Blogger Cook-Off.  Cigna is the official sponsor of the Walt Disney World Marathon and I was really excited when I received the email inviting me to the event.

It’s Almost Time for ZOOMA Florida + Giveaway!

2015 zooma florida ambassador

A week from today, the ZOOMA Florida race weekend kicks off!  As I’m sure you know by now, I’m one of the ZOOMA Florida Ambassadors and I’m looking forward to the race weekend!  I’ve been going back and forth trying to decide what distance to sign up for (the options are 5K, 12K, and half marathon) and I think I’ve settled on the 12K.  I’m not sure my legs will be up for a half marathon just six days after running a marathon and with a 12K, I get an insta-PR!  Who doesn’t love that?!

Happy New Year!

Like many of you, at the beginning of last year, I set some goals for 2014.  I went back and read over the list just a bit ago and.. I did okay?  I had ten goals and I mostly hit six of them.  I wasn’t considering them resolutions or even things that I needed to get done in 2014.  If they happened before the year was over, great.  If not, I’d keep trying.

Back from the Dead

Or at least, that’s how it feels. A killer sinus infection, followed by a lovely allergic reaction, has had me on my butt for the last few days. I’ve also been off work since December 23rd, so I think this is the first time I’ve actually turned on my computer since then.  I feel like our Christmas break flew by so fast.  When it started, I was so excited for two weeks of just hanging out with my family and friends without a ton of obligations, but like usual, we found things to keep us busy and then I got sick.. and here we are.  I’m going to try to keep it short today and just share a few pictures of what we were up to before Christmas.
