5 Calorie Burning Moments From Thanksgiving

November 29, 2010


The wonderful holiday season is upon us, which means a likely ascent in our weight.  I have read stories upon stories about what we need to do when enjoying holiday meals with family in order to ensure our weight stays right where we want it.  We’re supposed to eat less with portion control and do […]

Want To Run A ½ Marathon? Then Do It!

November 23, 2010


Rachel and I have been asked many times to recount our ½ marathon experience.  When we finish a person will usually say, “That sounds like such a great experience.  I want to run a ½ marathon someday!”  I would love to respond by simply saying, “Then do it,” but I know everything is always easier […]

Coming Down…Post 1/2 Marathon

November 19, 2010


It has been five days since we finished our first half marathon, but it still feels like it was yesterday.  I can still hear the crowds cheering and the bands playing.  I can close my eyes and see the finish line.  Every feeling that encompassed me in the moment I crossed the line is still […]

San Antonio Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Bound

November 12, 2010


We finished our packing for our trip to San Antonio last night, which is always an experience in itself.  I am notorious for being an over-packer.  For me it’s about packing for any situation that can arise and, when you live in Texas, any possible change in weather.  Luckily, Rachel is a bit of an […]

The Last Run

November 10, 2010


I have posted a video of the actual course we will be running.  We received the video by email and it actually gave me goose bumps.  I will admit that it seemed much longer than I imagined.  Okay it seemed ridiculously long, but still exciting.  I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX so […]
