New Balance Reach the Beach Relay Race Recap

October 9, 2014


It’s hard to recap a relay race. Capturing 30+ hours of fun while running 200 miles with little sleep – some more than others (shout out to my dear Caitlin, Ahem) – all while hanging out in a van is quite challenging. Almost as challenging as the race. It sounds crazy and it is – […]

Running for the Kids: Holcomb Bridge Hustle 5K

September 24, 2014


Can I just say how much I LOVE that my kids’ school PTA’s primary fundraiser is a 5K RUN? So fabulous on so many levels. It’s an awesome way to involve entire families and the community; to encourage fitness; and of course, to support the school. My sister, my daughter and I did the race […]

Black Girls Run! Sweat With Your Sole 5K & 15K Race Recap

September 17, 2014


I’m a race girl. Let me clarify that, I’m not necessarily “racing” but I love the thrill of a race. The event itself. The training, the planning, hooking up a new race outfit, seeing people at the race and that awesome feeling of accomplishment after I’m done. A post-race celebratory beer isn’t so bad either. […]

Coca-Cola 5K crew

Earlier this month I attended the 20th Essence Festival in New Orleans as a guest of the presenting sponsor Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola has been supporting the Essence Festival for 19 of those 20 years. Sure, Essence Fest might be best known for its music, but it’s much more than that. Empowerment and community issues receive just […]

Lions, Prince, and the Beach

July 15, 2014


I’ve been on the move, my friends, for the last month and I’m excited to be home and share my journey – and my upcoming plans – with you. It began with an unexpected 9-day media trip to the beautiful country of Kenya. This was my first trip to Africa and it was truly a […]

Reggae Marathon & Half Marathon Revisited

December 5, 2013


The Reggae Marathon & Half Marathon is taking place this Saturday, December 7, in Negril, Jamaica. I was trying to block it out and forget about the fact that I’m not there this year, but since that isn’t working for me (and it’s Throwback Thursday) I’ll be reliving the fabulousness of this race and last […]
