The Color Run Weekend

The Color Run Weekend

This past weekend I participated in The Color Run at the Atlanta Motor Speedway along with my two awesome sisters! My long weekend started early on Friday morning on a flight from Louisville, KY to Atlanta. I started freaking out on Thursday when I realized that the NCAA Final Four was being held in Atlanta … Continue reading

Goals, Dedication, & Healthy Living

As I sit here, waiting for my morning black coffee to cool, I am thinking about the fact that I am exactly one week shy of turning 35 years old. I don’t really feel older…except on mornings when I can still feel the soreness in my legs and knees after a 15 mile training run … Continue reading

Oh where, oh where could our spring be?

So between the torrential rain downpours and the snow that just won’t stop falling (despite the fact it’s spring and that this time last year it was 83 degrees and sunny!), all my workouts have been at the gym (with the exception of a fun Pilates class with a friend).

Egg Hunt Review Game

As I was getting out the Easter eggs for this year, I thought of a fun review to do with my kids using the plastic eggs.  My kids love finding the eggs, and until this year I would let them practice hunting the treat-filled eggs before Easter Sunday.

This is one of Central Kentucky’s most breathtakingly beautiful views, and it also happens to be one of the most visited state park landmarks in this area. For my friends that don’t automatically recognize where I am from this view, let me introduce you.  This is the view from the top of Natural Bridge, which … Continue reading

Can running be an obsession?

Can running be an obsession?

Warning, this devotional may hit close to your heart, it does mine every time I stop and realize I’m doing it. I was blessed when our women’s ministry selected Kelly Minter’s, No Other Gods (NOGS), bible study a year or so ago. (Got to love how God gives us what we need.)  Currently, our preacher … Continue reading
