Light up the Night 2014!

Artie and I are proud members of the Junior League of Winter Haven.  This year the league put on and hosted our second annual 5k and food truck rally!  We did not run but participated for the first time as a vendor.  The event was held in downtown Winter Haven.  We have a beautiful central […]

Run and Renew 5K

On February 15, 2014, Brides Against Breast Cancer held their first Run & Renew 5K in Sarasota, Florida.  I was fortunate to win two free race tickets through (an $85.00 value) so I recruited my husband to run with me.  The entry fee included “bride” and “groom” t-shirts for couples or pink or blue […]

Try something new with Fitbit!

  Hard to believe that this is our last Fitbit challenge for 2014!  Simple as it is:  try something new!  For some of us that may be easier said than done.  Routines can be hard to break and trying new exercises can be a little scary at first.  After our running clinic I knew I […]

So many Color Runs! So many $$$ !

Color runs seem to be all the rage but the question is: which one?  They are not cheap, most charge an entry fee of $50 and then an extra fee to park at the event. So how do you decide?  The first thing to remember is the color run is for fun.  It is not […]


Hearts in Motion Twilight 5K Run

I am always looking for a way to vary my running routine and so I could not pass up the opportunity to run through a vineyard in the Hearts in Motion Twilight 5K.  I did not know anything about the race except that there would be wine and beer at the end.  The event was held […]

Staying fit with my Fitbit

  Well it has been over a month now and I am still loving the Fitbit I received for Christmas! It is super easy to use and a real good reminder to GET MOVING!  I am really working hard on my goal of achieving 10,000 steps per day.  I never realized how hard that would be! I also […]


Meet the new swirlgear Ambassador!

Yes it is me!  I am super excited about representing this Fantastic line!  Strength. Style. Spirit.  Doesn’t that describe us all?  The company was formed by Lacie Whyte in Chicago- she was looking for functional and fashionable running gear for women and when she couldn’t find what she wanted she launched on her own line. The […]


Natural Running Clinic Review

I started running two years ago as a means to get in shape and have fun with friends.  I have never thought about my form and assumed that my speed was a direct measure of my physical abilities and limits.  I figured that in order to run faster I needed to train harder.  Out of […]
