The Super Run 5k While 5 Months Pregnant

The Super Run 5k While 5 Months Pregnant

Races have always been a big fitness motivator for me. There is something about the anticipation, the eustress of putting in your best effort, and the runner’s high you get from crossing the finish line. I signed up to do my second 5k (The Super Run 5k) a couple of weeks ago and looked forward to this themed race.

Moving to California! Our Epic Road Trip

Moving to California! Our Epic Road Trip

We took the plunge, leapt off the mountain, cut ties, and finally left Florida (that hot sticky state people retire to) so that we could move across the country to California. It’s been exhilarating people.  This trip represents a wake up that was many years in the making. It truly is so easy to settle for what you are used to and never make a change. We finally broke out of the monotonous slumber, quit our jobs, packed the house…
