It is an epic struggle of surpass or be surpassed, overcome or be defeated.  I love the adrenaline rush, the pulse pumping … Continue reading

Guess what? I’m officially a triathlete! Pretty cool huh? I swam, I biked, I ran… and I earned my title as a triathlete!

One year ago I made the decision to share my weight loss and fitness journey, my growing passion for running, and my love of obstacle racing with the public. Looking back I can remember clearly how I wrestled with the idea of starting a blog. I was scared, well maybe I’d say insecure. I questioned … Continue reading
