It’s been quite a while, hasn’t it? I know. I’m sorry. I was focusing on too many other things and this blog was the farthest thing on my mind. But I have some good news: I’m back with a renewed zest for writing about health and wellness.
Before I start blogging about anything of substance, I figured I should give you all an update on me. What have I been up to for the last year?
The last time you heard from me I was training for a marathon. Then I went off the grid. I ended up needing that training plan in order to succeed, so for 18 weeks I followed the Hal Higdon training method. It kicked my ass and I wanted my Saturday’s back, but on October 25, 2015, I PRed at the Marine Corps Marathon. Actually training was well worth it. The painful early Saturday mornings (I’m talking 4am runs) were the death of me. I felt like such a grandma taking naps all weekend long, but I stuck with it. The next time I decide to run 26.2 miles, I’ll push myself harder and maybe find some other crazy running buddies in the area.
I also started getting sucked into the Beachbody craze by my awesome friend and coach, Lindsay Benson. I have a support system of incredible women (and guys) who share a desire to best version of themselves. These selves happen to thrive on sticking to fitness routines and eating well. Never miss a Monday, right?!
Running and Beachbody are two of the five goals I’ve made for the New Year. You can check them out here if you’re interested.
I began another blog last year, which takes up a lot of my concentration. Unfortunately, I don’t write in it as often as I’d like. The content is very personal and I take pride with my words. Content is key on that site and I don’t always have the brainpower to focus on writing something mentally draining. I spend eight hours a day n front of a computer as it is. When I open the door to my house after work, I often times don’t have the energy to try to write something deep. Most nights, my brain needs time off, which interprets to the couch and television.
When I do manage to shake up my creative juices, I let people into my world more than I otherwise would. For example, if you’re curious why fitness and athletics mean so much to me, you should check out this article. It answers why I feel the need to work harder to be stronger.
RH+ST allows me to write without stressing over every teensy detail. It’s about writing to write, while hopefully helping others find a connection to running and staying active along the way.
Wait a minute. This blog is anything but personal. It’s a chance for me to write about something I love and to inspire others to be active. If you want to get to know me on a personal level, you’ll need to follow Diary of a Beautiful Disaster.
I’m so excited to resurrect Running Highs + Sexy Thighs. Thanks for hanging on during the hiatus. I think you’ll agree this break was for the best…but it’s time to start fresh.
I’m bringing sexy (thighs) back!
