Win a Headsweats trucker hat for Global Running Day!

Hello all! I’m still here. More on this later…keep reading. I’m coming at you to talk about Global Running Day aka National Running Day! It’s time to get out and celebrate running.

I needed the #walk today. Not in a great mood but fresh air helps clear the mind. #fitfam #fitness #fitfluential #sweatpink #fitspo #inspiration #weightloss #weightlossjourney #webeatfat #mizuno #walking #fitgirl #cardio #fitbit

I haven’t been running much lately. I’ve been doing a lot of walking. Walking is really great, but I would rather be running. Running has my heart and I can’t wait to get back to it! Running has changed my life in so many positive ways. It’s one of the reasons I love to share our weight loss story because the weight loss opened my world up to so many new possibilities.


I’ve gotten to run the roads of the many of the United States and I’ve even gotten to see the world and run the Great Wall of China. Running has made me a better person.


I thought this day would be the perfect day to giveaway a Headsweats trucker hat! I love running in these hats and I’m completely obsessed with a great trucker hat. All you have to do is leave a comment below about your favorite physical activity that keeps you healthy. You can earn extra entries by doing some other things.

In honor of Global Running Day it would be super great if you donated a few dollars to Team Healthy Kids! This is great organization that wants to make the future of America stronger by mobilizing “school professionals, families and communities to take actions that lead to healthy eating, physical activity and healthier schools where kids thrive.” Drop a donation in the jar. It would be greatly appreciated.

Ok here’s the sidenote:  I’ve been absent from the blog lately because I’ve been really busy.  The blog has always been my first priority but lately it’s taken a back seat.  Also, I don’t feel like a cool kid because I haven’t been running which has left me a little lost.  I have some projects that I’m working on and I can’t wait to be able to share those with you in the near future.  There are great things coming!

How are you celebrating Global Running Day?

Why I stopped showing up to running group?

Why I stopped showing up to running group?

My running group is great.  I love being a Strutter as most of you can tell from my race pictures.  These people have come into my life and made it so much sunnier.  My Monday and Wedesdays have been filled with hanging out with these people until recently and maybe it’s time for a little transparency. There are a few explanations that I could offer here.  Let’s start with the easiest explanation: I was just injured.  It’s not that I don’t want to run but I just couldn’t.  It hurt.  It was painful and it kind of made me sad.…
