Tunnel To Towers: Post Run

In the last nine months I've come so far with changes in my lifestyle.  I'm more active, pay more attention to what I eat and trying to enjoy more of what life has to offer.  Never did I imagine that I would be apart of something so amazing as the Tunnel To Towers 5K. I was lucky…

Tunnel To Towers

This Sunday I will be doing my first Tunnel To Towers 5K in NYC.  I am beyond excited and proud to run in honor of the brave who ran into the World Trade Center towers while everyone was trying to get out. The route traces the run firefighter Stephen Siller took to get to the…

Suicide Prevention Walk Update

I wanted to give you all an update on the Out of Darkness Suicide Prevention walk that took place this past Saturday.  My team did an amazing job of raising almost $1,500.  Big thanks to Eileen, Kathleen, Kathy, Dennis, Melissa and Jennine for walking.  Even though there was rain the sky did look beautiful.  Thanks…

Dating Sucks: Take 2

I feel like a kid learning to swim by taking a chance and giving up when it doesn't work out.  Recently, I took a dip in the dating pool again. I met this super nice and cute guy via Tinder.  Tinder is an app that syncs with your Facebook profile and per recent reports it's just…

We are well into September and the air is cool, the sunrise is later and the sunset is earlier.  The lack of sunlit hours in the day is making it hard to stay motivated.  Part of why I loved running was getting up just before the sunrise so I could see the beauty that many…

Where Were You?

Throughout our lives we have milestones that we share with our families and friends like weddings and births.  It is very rare to share a day with the world that we will remember forever. September 11, 2001 is a day I will never forget much like everyone else.  It was a beautiful and clear Tuesday…

Neighbor Drama

This is a little off-focus from my blog but I thought I would share it anyway because it does share the same principles as my journey. As we all remember Hurricane Sandy ruined our shores and many people’s homes.  About two weeks after the storm I took a vacation to Jamaica and so many people…

Inspiration: Take 2

Who inspires you to push yourself further than you thought you could? Maybe that means overextending yourself to a neighbor, disciplining your child eventhough you're so tired you'd rather give in, or pushing your body to the limits for your health. Over the last severeal months I have read about people who have pushed themselves…
