Valentines Day Gifts

Looking for something special to give the runner in your life? Here are some of my ideas! For my 26th marathon my husband gave me the Lagos Heart of Las Vegas Necklace to remind me of the Rock N Roll Vegas Marathon. It holds a special place in my heart {pun intended} because it reminds […]

My part of the #PathToFit campaign with Garmin and Whole Foods is coming to an end this week. Each week they have given us topics to talk about and we get to “run” with them and make them ours. It’s been nice having someone give me a topic to think about rather than getting lost […]

No just 2

Over the past 10 or so years, I’ve worked more race expos than I can count. There is one takeaway that comes from every single expo that continues to blow my mind. The word JUST.
