This is one of the most awesome inspirational videos I have ever seen. First, because I look just about like her first starting whenever I try to feel the beat. Secondly, because it shows just how much you can improve by doing a little a day! Totally coming back to this whenever I feel stuck.


Have an inspirational video to share? I would love to see it!

Today I am starting an online journal of my running adventures. What was formerly a space for a 1,000 mile project has now become my personal space for recording my progress on these said adventures. And I am determined that they shall be adventures!


In the past I have had a very hard time of sticking to it, avoiding shin splints, and in general staying the course.

This, however, is changing. Thanks to Skinny Ms.’s Running Program for Absolute Beginners¬†(#ABRP), I am confident that by the end of the year if not sooner, I shall be running a half marathon comfortably. {Who am I kidding? No half marathon is comfortable.}

I am running for several reasons. I run because I love the outdoors. I run to talk to God. I run to help others. I run to lose weight. I run because it is cheap–relatively. I run to become fit. I run for Jesus. I run for others. I run for myself.

As far as diet goes, I am a wimp at that too. So to start with, I have cut out processed sugar and most natural sugars too. Fruits I must have, but otherwise, no sugar. Naturally this creates a void in my diet that must be replaced with fruits, veggies, nuts, and protein.

So, here goes!
