As of yesterday, my run streak (and Momma K's) is now at 6 years!!!!!! Yes, 6 years (2193 consecutive days) of 1+ mile per day...EVERY SINGLE DAY!  What a wild and crazy 6 years it has been to say the least.  To celebrate the 6 year anniversary of our run streak, I wanted to share the story of how the streak started and some fun memories along the way. In May 2014, Momma K and I took on the Runner's World Run Streak challenge.  During the challenge you complete at least 1 mile per day from Memorial Day until July 4th.  The Run Streak is an awesome way to commi ..read more

Long time, no blog.  Right?  While you might have seen my social media pages still popping up in you feeds (and thank you all for following along), I took a little step back from the world of blogging for the past two months just to let my heart, mind, and soul refresh.  Obviously, the past two months have been a whirlwind of feelings, experiences, and most definitely LACK of experiences.   I have now been working from home since mid-March.  All races have been canceled since March 7th.  Vacations and gatherings have been canceled.  My vocabulary has gro ..read more

After a disappoint few years at the Hot Chocolate 15K/5K Atlanta expo, I opted to pay a few bucks and have my race packet mailed to me.  Since there is no race morning pickup, my choices were like $12 to have my stuff delivered to my doorstep or drive 45 minutes downtown, pay $10+ to park, walk to the expo and around the expo for 10 minutes then drive 45 minutes home.  It was well worth my money and time to do packet mailing instead.  My friends that went to the "expo" said that I really didn't miss much except a few chocolate samples.   We pre-purchased parking at one of the recommen ..read more

One of my absolute favorite races each year is the AJC Peachtree Road Race 10K hosted by Atlanta Track Club.  Every July 4th, approximately 60,000 runners pound the pavement down the streets of Atlanta for the nation's largest 10K. This race holds a special place in my heart as I have made many memories at this race over the past 9 years.  The Peachtree Road Race is much more than a 10K, it is giant celebration of our great nation.  Most of the 6.2 mile long course is lined with spectators cheering on runners, passing out food and drinks, and just having a great time.  Running the Pea ..read more
