Happy 4th Birthday Blog! :)


So blogging....
Obviously I've had some trouble with it...


July 22nd marks 4 years that I've had my blog... FOUR YEARS! I know I haven't written on  daily, weekly, or even monthly basis sometimes, but I have shared quite a lot!

I shared how I started running...4 years ago...
I shared how I stopped running because I had a miscarriage...
Then started back running after the miscarriage...
When I ran for 20 minutes straight for the first time ever!...
When we announced we were moving to Fort Worth...
The first time I ran/walked a 10K on 10-10-10...
When we announced we were pregnant :)...
When we announced it was a girl...
Our doggy's 5th Birthday and ultrasound pictures...
And when the Princess arrived...
Our first walk together...
When our puppies passed away...
My very first 5K! :)...
My very first Mothers Day as a Mother Runner!...
My 1st National Running Day and my 100th Post!...
My very 1st Virtual Half Marathon!...
When my Grandma passed away...
When I got my BOB Jogging stroller!...
When I became a #SweatPink Ambassador...
When I became a #GirlsGoneSporty Ambassador....
When I got my 1st Free Entry into a 5K! The 5K FoamFest!...
The Thanksgiving Day 5k where I RAN THE WHOLE TME!...
When I ran my 2nd Virtual Half Marathon...
When I became a Shubeez Ambassador...
When I ran my first Real Half Marathon!!! The Cowtown Half!!!...
When we bought our first house!...
When I ran my 2nd Real Half Marathon! The Dallas Rock N Roll Half...
When I became a School Nurse...
When I became a Train Dirty Fitness Ambassador...
And when I ran my 3rd Real Half Marathon! The Oklahoma City Half!

Wow That all brought back some memories!!!
I can't believe it's been that long. 

I hate to say that I am basically starting over from 4 years ago physically, but mentally, not so much.
It took A LOT of courage for me to get out and start C25K 4 years ago.

Now I see fitness as part of my every day life.
If I'm not running or working out, I'm THINKING about running or working out!

I think I can truly say I have A Runner's Heart now!
Not just a wannabe Runner's Heart like 4 years ago! :)

Thanks for following along with me on my crazy journey I call life!
I hope you will continue to follow me!


If not on my blog, then at least on my Facebook page! :)

Pro Compression Giveaway!!!

THANK YOU to everyone who has "liked" my Facebook Page and is now following along with me on my journey!!!
And a big, special THANK YOU to everyone who shared my page to help me make it to the big 500!! :)
WooHoo! 
Now, as I have promised, I have a pair of Compression socks OR sleeves to giveaway from PRO Compression!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:
"PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
