…is it weird that it’s all I can think about, yet I still feel like it doesn’t quite seem real yet? It should have felt real when my marathon training guide was complete. It should have felt real when I received all my Zero: The Project to End Prostate Cancer gear for reaching my fundraising […]

I don’t have friends in high places. I have friends in the right places. Yesterday, Dana just so happened to place herself in the perfect eavesdropping position during a Starbucks Corporate Meeting in a Florida Starbies. Well done, Daner. Well done. What did this fortunate circumstance get us? An inside scoop. There’s a new sheriff […]


The Marine Corps Marathon. It’s 4 days away. We checked Sunday’s weather like maniacs all day yesterday. Know what we saw? A forecasted low in the 30s. And showers. I reacted calmly and rationally. Fortunately, race day weather is looking a little better as of this morning: Looks like we’ll be breakin’ out the arm […]


Have you guys heard of Crystal Light Pure? You all know I’ve got a thing for Crystal Light, and Kraft Foods apparently heard, too. They sent me some Crystal Light Pure to try, and with the samples, I was provided with some Better-For-You Tailgating Tips from Crystal Light Pure Spokesperson Molly Kimball, RD. With football […]


I’m going to begin my post with a simple question: (source) I’ll tell you in a sec how that’s relevant to my rockin’ weekend. There’s only one face that can some up this past Friday-Sunday: Full of reuniting, wonderful friends, and juuust a little bit’a fun. After a 5 hour drive, I arrived to see […]


1. …every time “All I Do is Win” comes on my iPod, I don’t get jacked up enough to punch somebody. The song increases my pace by about a minute every time I hear it. I have a feeling I should load that song onto my running playlist around mile 26 next Sunday. I’m sure […]

Do I have a new find for you. When The Simply Bar told me they were the perfect fit for me, they couldn’t have been more right. …Seriously. These protein bars got it right when they concocted a great on-the-go bar with more protein for less fat and calories. They must have caught wind of […]

Remember when I posted The Strapless Dress Workout in July? Several of you asked for a quick-reference pin for it. Pin It And all you need to do to “pin” it is click that button. See? All you had to do was ask. 😉 And guess what else has materialized? A Life of bLyss shop! […]



This past weekend, there was the last long (12 mile) run. And on that run, there were some casualties. First day on my new feet, you guys. One day, maybe the fairy of grace and coordination will bless me with some skills. For now, I’ll be nursing my wounds while trying to stop calling to […]


I’m so excited!

Guess who’s coming to play this weekend? THIS GIRL! I’m pretty stinkin’ stoked for Colleen to come run, drink wine, eat, dance, and dance with me this weekend. We’re basically the same person. I’m sure everyone around Virginia Beach will be wondering where I’ve been hiding my twin all this time. Yes, Chloe, that’s this […]
