I updated the “My Life Now” page! Check it out HERE.
My alarm went off at 6:05 AM for my morning run. I was in a chocolate coma from last night, so I snoozed until 6:10. We’ve been doing 45 squats a day at work, so my legs are in constant sore mode. Needless to say, I was not feeling overwhelmed with joy at the thought of running. But the mental clarity that would come at the end of it was motivation.
In case you care, my pace was actually 8:56/mile, but I was slow on stopping the Run Keeper when I finished.
Side note: CONGRATS TO THE SAN ANTONIO SPURS on that larger than life victory last night! Wholey 3 point hurricane flood waters!

Can you imagine running a 5K with 3 buddies and getting soaked in paint along the way? While it does sound like a toxic fest, it also sounds like the coolest running event on planet Virginia.
The race is called Color Run, and it travels around the country. This September it will be in Richmond, VA and I kinda need to be there.
It’s cheaper and more fun to have a team, so that’s kinda where I am right now. I’m thinking about asking Luke and maybe some coworkers at PETA?
Have you ever done a Color Run? What’s the funnest race you’ve ever done?

Today is June 5th – which means today is the one day dedicated to runners in America. Yahoo!!!
Why do I run? Well I’ve listed 100 reasons here. But today, I’m running to overcome my addiction to the comfort food brings me. I’m running to gain the courage to talk to someone very close to me about their addiction. I’m running to love myself a little more. I’m running to be more selfless.
It’s probably 70 degrees and sunny in Virginia Beach today. I’m thinking about hitting up the trails after work to do some deep meditating whilst running, sans music and RunKeeper. What are you doing to celebrate this beautiful day?

Yup! I’ve been saying it for years that I was ready for a hair change. But I could not part ways with my long sensual hair… Until yesterday. I went to this amazing salon and teamed up with a great stylist here in Virginia Beach who understands naturally curly hair. I told her I’m ready to let go of my hair. But I need it to still fit in a ponytail. 8 less inches of hair later, I was crying and laughing out of fear then joy.
I couldn’t be more pleased with the new ‘do. I am not my hair!
