My inspiration changes from moment to moment and that’s what keeps me going. That’s the great thing about inspiration, it doesn’t have to be just one thing or person. I must share, I’ve been inspired by a special person in my life: Patsy! I will keep this short and sweet because words will never be able to express the full emotion. I see Patsy working really hard! She’s been working on her fitness and has made some positive life changes over the years. But the thing that really got me? On Sunday, Willie and I were on our way to… View Post

This morning started off very early for me.  It’s the day in every marathon training plan people look at and think…”20 miles is a long way to go without someone cheering you on.”  Well today was my day.  Honestly, I was skeptical about completing all 20 miles in the Texas heat and humidity but I was going to give it a try.

Today is your lucky day if you do!  Remember last year when Willie and I were raising money for St. Jude’s Children Hospital to run in the canceled marathon?  Well we are doing it again!  Last year, Team We Beat Fat raised $2500 for the the children at hospital.  This year we want to raise money again. Together, Willie and I, will run the St. Jude Marathon in December and we would love to be able to sport a heroes singlet as we run through the St. Jude campus.  Every dollar counts and helps a child fight their battle with… View Post

It’s a day to celebrate running and we all know how much I love running! I thought I would start off the day the right way by working out. I went to Group Power and then I came home to put on a running shirt. I had too many decisions. I didn’t know which one to wear. I chose The Louisiana Marathon shirt because it was my first marathon and it’s my favorite race of the entire year! This is the part why I tell you why I love to run. I run because it makes me believe what I… View Post
