What my blog is about:
My tag line is: A place for you to explore my DAYDREAMS as a writer, wife, and traveler– and help me tie my SHOESTRINGS as a gal rediscovering her passion for running!  In reality: I blog about fitness, daydream travels, books, and things that make me happy.  I also have the added bonus of experiencing life as an Expat – I’m an American living in Canada!
Favorite running moment:
The first time I broke the time barrier.  Wait…what?!  Let me rewind to February 15, 2011.  “I was so excited (and nervous) to complete my first ‘long run’.  I am a super competitive person, so I have a hard time just lacing up my sneaks for a relaxing, long run. For some reason, I have 3 miles stuck in my head, and every run has been to do JUST 3 miles – only a little faster each time! And so, I end up never reaching 30 minutes…or beyond. I remember back in high school when we used to do long runs one day a week…and I loved those days…randomly running zigzags through the neighborhoods…encouraging each other that yes, we CAN finish this!  Why couldn’t I do that again, I thought?  So on Wednesday, I hung up the competitive shoes and put on the fun-run shoes, figuratively speaking.  I set my sights on completing a 30 minute run…AND…I took my average pace per mile and added a minute to it for my goal pace.  Yes…I forced myself to run at a slower pace…and yes, at first, my feet were itching to go a lil’ faster.  But once I got my play list going, I fell right into step with the set per mile pace.  And when 30 minutes came, I decided to go ahead and do 35 minutes!  And it felt GREAT!  And so, I broke the time barrier!  My mental time barrier, that is.”
Favorite race fuel:
Strawberry GU Chomps and Cherry Blossom Honey Stingers are my go-to’s during long runs/training runs/half marathons!  I have also really come to like the VEGA SPORT Endurance Gel (Raspberry) before runs.
Running goals for 2015:
Run 600 miles!

Run 4 half marathons!

Run at least one trail race!

Run one local 5K and 10K race!

Break 25 minutes in the 5K!

Be a stellar ambassador for the 2015 Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon series!!!

Why people should follow my blog / social media channels:
I’m real.  I blog about the good parts and the messy parts.  Of running and of life.  I love serendipity, nostalgia, traveling, good friends, coincidences, red wine in big glasses, and doing things I’ve never done before.  And I LOVE sharing my experiences!

    • You’re welcome…connecting with new blogs is always fun!!! The RnR races are so much fun….SO VERY many people! But they have live bands along the way…and it’s all so motivating! PS…they just announced Brooklyn for Oct. 10th! I ran my first RnR in New Orleans (which is where I was living before), so it made it a bit more fun to enjoy the race! Let me know if you decide to try one! I’d love to follow your journey! 🙂 Have great day.
