I Got 100 Problems Because Now a Bikini Is One.

This post is late. Along with everything else in my life the past three weeks. The quick version: Work life. June is normally a rough mental month for me anyway with the anniversary of my mother’s death, but work life and things related to it that were out of my control, took me to a …

Race Recap: Running of the Bulls 8K, crying at a race AGAIN, and coming full circle.

“And when all this is through, I’m planning on coming back better, stronger and faster than ever and taking the test in a few months.” Quick–who said that? That’s right–me! I’m testing you CRT readers that have been with me since way back. WAY back. It came from this post. And that picture came from …

CNN {seriously?!}, You Rock, and a Weekend Run Down.

Heyyyyy, guys! I had a whole other post ready for today but then this showed up on the world wide web this past Friday: So that happened. Wow. Just wow. That’s my friggin’ mug on the home page of CNN!!! I knew there was an article coming out on there, but only days before did …

With my stepped up dedication to end my weight loss/get fit JOURNEY and finally reach the land of MAINTENANCE, I’ve been hearing two questions over and over. — How do you find the time? — Where do you get the motivation? Over and over and over. REALLY. At least 3-5 times a day errrryday. I …

“You want me to renounce my throne? I will. [calling out to all of you] From this moment on, I renounce my throne. I’m no longer the Queen of Cardio. I renounce my throne! [looking at all of you] Does this make you happy?” Okay, I stole that from Coming to America. Somewhat. That movie …

Marathon training, I’m just not that into you. So we’re done.

Wow. Happy 2013! I totally meant to post before the year was 12 days old. But long work weeks, many hours at the gym, updating  and corresponding on my FB page, Twitter, & Instagram, a bad head cold and sleeping have managed to take up of the previous two weeks! So here I am now. …

You pity my running speed. I don’t.

I am now a half marathoner. Unofficially. Actually, it’s not “unofficial” to me. It wasn’t a nationally or regionally or locally known half marathon. It was my own. Let’s call it the “Cherie Woke Up On Friday And Decided To Run 13.1 Miles On The Bolin Creek Trail To See If She Could Half Marathon.” …

Second Half of 2012…We Need To Talk.

Six months ago, I decided that 2012 was the year to #makeitcount. and on a sassier note that… Well, I certainly feel that I made good on that. I ran my first race, became a FitFluential Ambassador, hit some major weight loss milestones, and  inspired a bunch of friends {who are killin’ it!} to get …
