The last we spoke of my diet I was up in arms about what I should do. Over the past several months, my health hasn’t been tip top. I’ve been diagnosed with anemia, my body hasn’t been recovering as quickly as it used to, I’ve had bouts of adult acne, and to be honest, I […]

Good Morning! It’s hard to believe that Christmas is just days away. While you might have a chill in the air or even snow on the ground, Charleston is feeling more like late spring. Sure we’re known for our mild winters, but with temperatures reaching 80-degrees yesterday, this is not normal. It fact, it’s a […]

Hi Friend! Happy Monday! Dan and I had a packed weekend spent with friends and celebrating. Yesterday we danced the night away at a wedding and by the time we got home, decided to have an impromptu date night. So… with that, I guess you can say I decided to live life instead of writing […]

Yesterday morning I ran a 10K, the  James Island Connector Run. I actually set a new PR (personal record), and then I went home and cried, oh and slept. Let me back up, when my alarm started to go off. Something like this happened… BEEP BEEP BEEP Dan: Rolls over and asks “How are you […]

Tomorrow I have a 10K (The James Island Connector Run). This is a 10K that I’ve been training hard for to PR. And no just any PR… it’s what I need if I want to get a seeded spot for the Cooper River Bridge Run. I’ve mentioned it before, if I do not get this […]

Hello friend, I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday! We have had the best weekend with our friends/boot campers. Unfortunately today, I woke up with a sore throat so I’ll be taking it easy. I guess I just had a little too much fun! Tomorrow I’ll have a normal post (it’s actually a great Pumpkin […]

Yesterday I briefly mentioned that Dan and I filmed our latest workout for Fit Women’s Weekly at the gorgeous Magnolia Plantation & Gardens here in Charleston. We’re very blessed to live just minutes away from some of the most beautiful places in our city and we’ve been using that to our advantage lately. Each workout […]

8 out of 10 women are currently wearing the wrong size sports bra.  That’s a fun fact that I learned on Friday when I visited my friends at Fleet Feet for my very first sports bra fitting.  This is the “Vixen” the bra I ended up with! If you’re like me, you likely just try […]

Tomorrow officially kicks of race season. Over the next 5 weeks I’ll be running 4 races. If you’re curious and looking for a good run in the Charleston area, here’s my schedule: Oct 12: Crowfield 5K Oct 20: Mini Marathon (Half) in Myrtle Beach Nov 2: James Island 10K (Use “DiscountKindal” for $5 off registration) […]

Yesterday, I felt as if I was standing in the middle of the Olympic stadium with crowds standing, cheering, and tossing roses down towards my feet. I waved back, a proud smile reaching from ear to ear. Okay, so I might have been completely alone yesterday morning. And there was no one around to congratulate […]

This morning kicked off something amazing: pumpkin walnut pancakes (wheat-free of course) and an amazing iced pumpkin latte. Now that today is the official first day of fall, I feel that I can load my food up with as much pumpkin, cinnamon, walnuts, and apples that I want. But not all at once, of course. […]

Though we only traveled 30 minutes away, we had just the vacation we needed. Sleep, relaxation, beach time, and some fitness sprinkled in (more pictures below and at my Instagram page). Oh, and some kitchen time. Dan asked if I wanted to cook something vegan for his family, and after seeing how gorgeous our rental […]

Yesterday, we got dirty. Really dirty, as we ran through Charleston marshes, crawled through thick, deep, smelly ponds of pluff mud, and jumped into debris filled creeks for 3.1 miles. It was the Charleston Mega Mud Run, and we had a blast! This morning I have the bruises, scrapes and tight muscles as reminders of […]

Well, hello friend! I hope your day is off to a great start. It’s about to get a extra dose of motivation (because we can all use an extra dose of it every day) to make it even better. Back in January, I had the privilege of being chosen to participate in a healthy living […]

With Labor Day behind us, fall is upon us. For many, that translates into race season! Whether you’re an avid half marathoner or aiming to run your first 5K, chances are you’ve got a race or two in mind. I haven’t really put a lot of emphasis on my running here lately, but my race […]
