Breast cancer

On Saturday, I ran the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure here in Richmond, VA. As everyone knows, with my sister’s fight, breast cancer is a cause I will support to no end, so it seemed like fate that Alex’s mom used to work for Susan G. Komen and is one of the race […]


You know when you have several months of…. well, not the best fortune? And you try not to dwell on things not going your way, trudging on through, waiting patiently for improvements? As you know, the last year was a tough one, getting laid off, living in a new city, and feeling very alone. I […]


I think my favorite kinda posts these days are the ones I spend catching up with all of you. Whatcha been up to the past few weeks? Oh, me? I’ve been riding around Richmond in a pedal powered party bike. Well, sorta. This was for a commercial for the UCI Road World Championship Bike Race […]


Simply The Best

Yesterday was simply the best. My Pure Barre studio hosted an #AMYSTRONG class to benefit my sister in her second fight against breast cancer. We had a completely full house, and the energy was absolutely amazing. I was so frazzled and emotionally overwhelmed, I’m certain I was spinning around like The Tasmanian Devil as I […]


Life’s been a little crazy. I’ve been flying from one thing to the next… quite literally. Check out the above video clips for a glimpse of the VA Bloggers aerial yoga class from this weekend! It was really fun to pretend I was in the circus for about an hour. You can see Brittany and […]


You remember my sister, right? Hold up, you may recognize us better here… This was after our proud 6.3-mile run on Christmas morning, which was Amy’s longest run since she had her double mastectomy. Breast cancer awareness has always been important to me, but it has become so much more so after taking care of […]

I’m currently parked on Amy’s couch. The dishwasher is empty, the kitchen is clean, the laundry is washed and folded, my belly is full, my sister is smiling,Β and…. my shin is hurting. πŸ™ I know, I know. I’ve been complaining about my shins since the beginning of March. They got better after my little shin […]

I made it to my sister’s to play little sister nursey for a little while. Amy is doing great, she looks awesome, and I’m so glad I can be here for her. And since I don’t have much to update you all on, I’ll leave you with these gems: My awesome twin nieces… you may […]

I can’t describe to you all how much your thoughts, prayers, and comments touched the hearts of my sister, my family, and me. I’m so happy to report that Amy is smiling big from the hospital recovery room. Why is she smiling so big, do you ask (other than all those pain meds ;)) Amy […]
