Just Give Me a Reason

It would seem that this sort of thing couldn't happen. How is it possible that an entrepreneur, who saw a need in her community, filled that need successfully, is told to quit? How is this even happening? It makes no sense. Christina Landry, military spouse and a veteran herself, founded DumBell Fitness 5 years ago. As… Continue reading Just Give Me a Reason

Eeyore by Nature?

Hiking Kokohead while living in Hawaii was a wonderful experience, but not for the obvious reasons.   The view was beyond beautiful overlooking Hanauma Bay. Being able to lookout over the marathon course from that perspective was mind-blowing. Hiking it with a dear friend makes it a forever treasured memory. The encounter we had with… Continue reading Eeyore by Nature?

Outlook

I went out and got myself a new outlook. I felt awful about my first biathlon and I REFUSE to feel that way again this Sunday. A common thread in my life (that my mother will attest to) is that I like to "know it before I know it". In other words - I expect… Continue reading Outlook

FUN Run!

On this morning's run I did my usual 3.5 mile loop and coming back under the highway, we ran into this: I'm pushing my 70+ lbs of kids and stroller and the sprinklers were on!!!! It was so fun, and I was reminded of why I love doing this. I run to feel good. Forget… Continue reading FUN Run!

Kokohead, Battle Buddies, and Facing Fears!

So after hiking Diamondhead a couple of weeks ago, Katy and I decide that we are rockstars and we are gonna do Kokohead. It's only 1,048 railroad ties or "steps" to the top - can't be that bad! And we swam over a mile yesterday - lets climb a volcano today! Yippee!! My rockstar battle… Continue reading Kokohead, Battle Buddies, and Facing Fears!
