How Running Has Changed Me


Running has made so many different impacts on my life and the decision to pick up this running "thing" was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Tuesdays on the Run

It has changed me physically

This kind of goes without saying, but running has helped me burn calories, lose weight, and shape up!

It has changed my mindset

I love that when I'm slightly anxious (cause that happens sometimes) or overwhelmed, or had a bad day, or just need to clear my mind, I can lace up my running shoes and head out the door for a run. It's amazing the difference a few miles can make!

It has changed my outlook on life

Running has also helped to change my outlook on the world and life. I feel like I've become a more grateful person and can better appreciate the small things in life. I try not to take anything for granted, including a pain free run.

 It has helped me cope

Throughout loss, life changes, and those little curve balls life seems to throw our way sometimes, running has helped me cope.

It has opened new doors and opportunities

If you asked me in 2008 where I thought I would be in 2018, my answer would definitely not have been "running marathons". I was a brand new runner and scared of distance, but running has taught me not to fear those distances and to get out there and just do it. Orangetheory? Never. I'm not a gym class kind of girl, I would have told you. Well, here I am...running marathons and "going to a gym".

Where would I be without this running "thing" I do? I'm not sure, but I'm so grateful I have it and plan to keep on running as long as I'm physically able! Here's to the next 10 years!

How has running changed YOU?

VLOG: Disney Cruise Line Day 7 & 8 (At Sea Day & Castaway Cay)

Here we are, just a few weeks before our next cruise, and I finally finished the video recaps of our previous cruise last October. I would have had these done sooner, but Vlogidays came into play and so did our January Marathon Weekend trip. So, here we are almost a year later and they are finally complete! Better late than never I say!



Our final two days consisted of an at Sea Day where we completely and 100% enjoyed a brunch at Palo. We might have also won a trivia game that day, too!



Last but not least, our final day on the cruise took us to Castaway Cay where we ran the 5K, snorkeled, and spent time at Serenity Bay!


In all, we had a fantastic time and loved our fabulous 10th Anniversary celebration spent at sea!

If you're interested in these recaps and want to see more, stay tuned this fall because more will be coming your way! Also, I'll be in and out of Instagram throughout our cruise posting updates, so be sure to follow along with our adventures there!
