So I ran 26.2 miles…..

I am in the process of writing my recap of my first marathon…..but until I can wrap my brain around the feelings and get them into words on the page, I’ll leave you with this! Yes….I RAN a MARATHON!!!


Check back in the next day or two for the full update. Ya’ll, putting this into words is hard. I’m still tear up just writing it. Can’t wait to share it with you.

Running for the Ronald McDonald House-Houston


I have signed up to run my 1st official FULL marathon! 26.2 miles of Houston roads I am going to train to run in January 2015. I decided to sign up to run for a charity to give special meaning to my 26.2 mile journey and to run for someone other than myself.
I chose to run for the Ronald McDonald House of Houston. An organization that has helped me at times and one that is dear to my heart. I believe in what they do and how they help so many families, mine included.

I am not required to raise money. I CHOOSE to for this great organization and ask that if you would like, please help me in reaching my goals.

I hope you will sponsor my efforts, so together, we can make a difference. Please consider a donation of $35 or $70, $100 or more. Your donation is tax-deductible and will make a tremendous impact.

Please visit the link below to donate to this cause:

Every donation – large or small – brings me one step closer to reaching my goals. One step closer to helping another family as they walk through unknown battles with their loved ones.
I thank you for each and every dollar….it fuels my passion for running!!
