It was such a wonderful time with the family, I love them all so much!


This morning I woke up late, but I still went for a 3 mile easy, 30 minute run. It’s my last run before my marathon and my legs felt great, but my mind was still in a funk!! Can I run 26.2 miles on Sunday? YES, but for some reason I am getting hecka nervous!

When I got back home after my run, I have been watching my DVR’D TBL and now I am getting pumped and all fired up! I know that if these contestants could be running a MARATHON then so can I!

I am also enjoying a big bowl of Chocolate Pecan Apple Butter OATS!
