NJ_Marathon_Primary_Logo

Hey, guys! I figured since it was February 5th, it would be a fine time to share some of my goals for this year. (You know, that post everyone else writes the first week of January.) Better late than never, right? ;) I usually spend the majority of January prepping for the Walt Disney World … [Read more...]

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...]

Running Makes You Stronger. Period.

2001

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! The weather kind of sucked here in NJ (except for Monday), but I did get to spend some time in Atlantic City and catch a Third Eye Blind concert...I've been obsessed with them since middle school, and pretty much stalk them every time they come … [Read more...]

My Incredibly DOPEY Decision

disneyprincesshalfmarathon1

So yesterday I did something crazy. Like, real crazy. WAY crazier than my decision to register for the Dumbo Double Dare, which I thought was just pure MADNESS at the time (and now just doesn't seem so scary after all). Yesterday, I got completely swept up in the excitement of Walt Disney World's … [Read more...]

If you took a look through my kitchen and bathroom cabinets, you would find tons of not-so-well organized health and fitness products, from snacks to supplements. I'm one to try pretty much anything, and in my quest to be as healthy as I possibly can be, that means I end up with a whole lot of … [Read more...]

Putting Myself ‘Out There’

beach2007

For more than three years now, I have been keeping a secret. I have a blog. While those of you who follow me on Twitter -- my main forum for publicizing the goings-on here at "The Final Forty" -- may be scratching your heads right now, allow me to explain. I started blogging in January of 2010 … [Read more...]

I'm back from my first half marathon and RunDisney event -- the Disney Princess Half Marathon -- and I'll be posting a whole lot of recaps and photos over the next few days...but first and foremost, I would like to announce that I DID finish, and I DID have the time of my life!

The Moment I’ve Been Waiting For

princessmedal

It's finally here! Tomorrow I will be flying to Orlando for my very first half marathon: the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I could probably use this final blog post for a 2,000 word narrative on what this race means to me, or a summary of all the blood, sweat, and tears I put into the training … [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...]
