Morning friends! Did you enjoy my Medicine Ball video from last night???

And guess what? I did it!!! I woke up early again to start the day off right 🙂 I am so reaching my mini goal this week (except on Tuesday morning when I didn’t have a choice). I love getting up early, because I get to take my time getting ready, making breakfast and spend some quite time with the Lord.

Breakfast was Apple Cinnamon Waffles with 2 eggs 🙂 I nuked 1 chopped apple with cinnamon in the microwave for 1:30.


When I eat waffles I always have to make sure I have plenty of protein with them or I don’t stay full for long.  


Topped my Waffles with Apple Butter too! 




MMMMM! This whole meal was around 400 calories and packed with fiber and protein!

+FP Coffee to-go!



I have had a couple girls (Meghann and Monica) ask me how I became a faster runner and how I made it to the Boston marathon. I thought I would share some of the answers with you all.

I didn’t get FAST on accident I worked my BOOTIE OFF!!!!

I started doing speed workouts. In our training plan we purchased from Coach AL to qualify for Boston, I was on the track at least twice a week, doing sprints, intervals, strides and tempo runs. A tempo run, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary  (see tempo and pace), is“a rate of performance at a steady pace.” Tempo runs are workouts where you run at a steady pace that is around 70% to 80% of your max aerobic capacity..Basically just picking up the pace for some miles during a run.

I believe a PLAN is essential for any success in life so why wouldn’t you have one for running? If you want to improve, stay injury free, and increase the chance that you will be at your peak fitness and readiness for your most important race or event, then GET A PLAN!  Of course you want a plan that is written by someone who’s philosophy you agree with. Do your research, ask questions!!!

I think the most important thing about getting faster and stronger is having a plan that mixes it up, “train smart,”!!!! Not only doing speed work and long runs, but incorporating isometrics, yoga, and strength training. FORM is also SUPER important, it makes you stronger! Not running correctly can really mess you up!

I will talk about this subject a lot more soon, so send your questions my way!!!

I love this statement below…..

Stay the PATH.

Believe in yourself.


Don’t give up.


They call it the grind for a reason. Be PATIENT.

Nothing worth achieving happens overnight or quickly…

Question: Do you like running for speed or distance???
