Disney Princess Half Marathon


Disney Princess Half Marathon - I'm a Finisher! I did it! I wasn't sure that I could, but with the support of my family and my friend, Amynah, I finished the 2014 Disney Princess Half Marathon. I'm pretty proud of this accomplishment considering that less than a month ago, I was told by my doctor that a bone in my foot (a metatarsal) had died and was, in his words, "sitting in my foot Continue Reading

Disney Princess Half Marathon, Here I Come!

It has been seven months since I signed up for the Disney Princess half marathon. Back then, it seemed like the race was far, far in the future. Now, it is just a few days away. A lot has changed since I signed up. Back then, I planned to train with a walk/run interval program with a goal to run more miles in one race than I ever had before. Unfortunately, after multiple stress Continue Reading

Ice, Snow, Earthquake – What’s Next, Locusts? Frogs?

When mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. That's what my mom always said. Turns out, Mother Nature ain't happy right now - at least that's how it feels here in metro-Atlanta. On Tuesday, snow and ice started coming down in the metro-Atlanta area. It lasted for 2 1/2 days. The icy roads made going out impossible, so we all holed up at home for a few days. On Friday, despite temperatures Continue Reading

Thankfully, we did not lose power - however, many Atlantans did. I also know that many others up the east coast are dealing with the storm now. To all of my readers dealing with horrible winter weather - please stay safe and Continue Reading

What Does a Groundhog Say? This Doesn’t Look Like Spring!


Our local groundhog, General Beauregard Lee, predicted an early spring when he waddled out of his Southern "mansion" a few weeks ago. Today, however, I am sitting in the house watching what is being described as a "catastrophic" and "historic" ice storm take shape outside my window. Ice storms are the scary part of living in the South. Widespread power outages are pretty much a given as the Continue Reading

If You Can’t Say Something Nice…


Good morning readers, I know that some of you are waking up to temperatures in the mid-50s; others are waking up to temperatures below 0; and still others, in my neck of the woods, are waking up to temps in the teens with icy roads, spouses and kids who never made it home from work/school yesterday (but, hopefully, are safe and sound at work, school, or the houses of coworkers and Continue Reading
