Running has always been a part of my life, and I am blessed that after 21 years I can still do it. Over the last 21 years, I have had some extreme highs and some extreme lows and a lot of time hanging out somewhere in the middle, but one thing that I have learned… Continue reading If You Keep Running, the Times Will Come!
Just when I thought I was out of the woods…. it hit me. I have to remember I work with 5 and 6 year olds all day. I hit my hug quota by 800 am everyday….. OF COURSE I’M GOING TO GET SICK! I’m fine most of the day and around 6pm the fever starts,… Continue reading We Now Return to Your Regularly Scheduled Program
I don’t think I have stopped moving since last Saturday… I have been promising the kids forever that we would go to Sea World and I made it a point that last Saturday would be the day…. I went when I was six and I have to say, I love it just as much than… Continue reading Sea World to the Real World
I am totally THAT girl, in race world and in the real world! I love a great outfit! Whether it’s in the classroom, on date night or at my next race. When I’m having my informal and formal observations at school, I always go buy a new dress because I say if you feel good… Continue reading But… I have nothing to wear!

Hey all this is my first what up Wednesday post of the year… I know I shouldn’t complain but I’m going to…. It’s chilly down here! I’ve been dating the treadmill a lot lately, because it’s too dark and too cold for me once Michael gets home from work… Look it got down to 36!… Continue reading What Up Wednesday…
Every Monday they hold track work outs at a local HS here in Lakeland, however, Michael’s work schedule often conflicts with many of the runs through out the week which means Tantra flies solo those evenings. Tonight’s work out was no exception: 2 miles warm up, 3xmile repeats at negative splits 1 mile cool down.… Continue reading Some times negatives are positive….
After my first disastrous marathon that I very rarely mention, my best friend and I got the word “believe” tattooed on our right wrists. I put it there to remind myself how strong I am. That first marathon is definitely a thorn in my side but it taught me soooo much about myself, but most… Continue reading Your current running relationship status: Happy
I wish I could say that this is something new in my “old age”… but the reality is that I have always been a creature of habit and slightly OCD. As long as I have run distance, I have always run my long runs on Sunday’s and it’s always worked out. Well, this training cycle… Continue reading Creature of Habit…
If you want different results, you have to try different things…. This training cycle is truly like no other. First of all, the climate. NY vs. Florida: it’s like night and day at this point in the year and while training in the freezing cold was no joy, neither is training in weather that is… Continue reading Climbing That Ladder
