Women’s Running Magazine awesomeness and Be Your Own Runner.

Hey all! I wish I had time for more of a post-post today, but well, yeah, nope…I don’t. I’m writing this on Sunday night and the Billboard Music Awards are taking most of my attention. I can’t miss a Prince sighting, y’all!! Anyhow, it’s the thought that counts and my thought is there at least! …

There’s no crying in weight lifting.

Okay, there is a little bit of crying. At least for me anyhow, and I’m not really a crier. But as I said before–this whole weight loss/get healthy journey just brings me to it.
