MealEnders Review and Giveaway

Through my role as a SweatPink Ambassador, I was sent four complimentary packs of MealEnders Signaling Lozenges in exchange for my review. The opinions expressed are, as always, completely my own.  🙂 You know what nobody told me would happen if I trained for a marathon?  Nobody told me that I would actually gain weight!  I have gained about 5 pounds with each marathon!  Sadly, I’m not exaggerating at all… I’ve ran 2 marathons to date, and I am almost {Read More}

Friday Five: A Little About Me

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer

It’s that time of year again.  The time of year when everywhere you look, you see pumpkin.  From food to  drinks and candles… and I love it!  My favorite way to get my seasonal fix, is in my coffee!  But if you’re like me, you may occasionally go to Starbuck’s for your Pumpkin Spice latte, but you’re not likely to do that everyday.  (Or in my case a couple of times a day, because I have a serious coffee addiction)! {Read More}

Sunday Run Day

Week 1 of marathon training is complete! (only 16 more weeks to go!)  😉 Saturday started with a solid 5 mile run, early in the morning.  My 5 mile runs are always along the same route, this one was no different.  Ended up with 5.12 miles at at pace of 9:04/mile. Sunday’s run was beautiful!  The kids were going to their grandparent’s house for breakfast.  Of course, when my husband and I get a chance for a “date,” we go running! {Read More}
