Weekly Workouts and My New Blog Design!

2013...almost 90 degrees by 9am...wanted to die.

Hi, everyone! As sad as I am to say good-bye to the holiday weekend, I'm ready to get back to business. :) First things first. Allow me to introduce my new blog design! Since "The Final Forty" has sort of morphed from a weight loss blog to a running/fitness blog over the last year or so, I was … [Read more...]

Summer Running

2013-06-04-15-11-38

Happy first day of summer, everyone! Speaking of which, I have a confession to make. I kind of, sort of, don't really like running in the summer. There. I said it. Last year, I began my Princess Half training towards the end of the summer, so while I had my fair share of long, sweaty runs, I was … [Read more...]

Fear of the Unknown

2013-03-15-15-10-31

It's hard for me to believe that it was just a few short weeks ago that I was terrified of not being able to finish a half marathon. And yet last weekend I ran a 20K (which, come on, is pretty much a half marathon!), and yesterday I registered not for a St. Patrick's Day 5K, but instead decided … [Read more...]

I cannot WAIT for my … [Read more...]

Why I Love Running

2013-02-06-13-59-37

In honor of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd proclaim the reasons I've fallen head over heels for running. (I better love it, seeing as how ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, I will be headed down to Walt Disney World to take on my very first half marathon!) 1.) The way I feel when I'm done. Sure, sure, the … [Read more...]

Taking a Leap of Faith

dumbo-double-dare-fb-cover

This week, I did something absolutely insane. I still can't believe I did this. On Tuesday morning, I started hearing rumblings of something called "Dumbo Double Dare" on Twitter and the DIS Boards threads I've been frequenting ever since I registered for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. Not … [Read more...]
