Happy Thursday!

I can’t believe how quickly this week has flown by, but you won’t hear me complaining. I’ve gotten so much accomplished and put some fun plans into action.

I recently made this the the background of my phone:

Dreams Into Reality

I used to be one of those girls that was full of self-doubt. Someone who didn’t know what the heck I was going to do. I promise you if you want something – go after it! Sure, we may fail but you will never know if you don’t take that first big leap and give it a try. I am at the point in my life where I am ready to take the risk.

Losing my job, even though it was hard, is turning out to be one of the best things that ever happened to me.

I guess the point of this rambling is to follow your dreams. However crazy or far fetched it may seem, go for it! I know it may sound cliche to some, but you truly can do whatever you set your mind to!

You have one life, one chance to do whatever you’ve imagined.  It may not always be obvious, in fact it has taken me almost 9 months to start to have clarity, but I finally am starting to feel free!

Turn your dreams into plans. 


In other news, I had a really great workout yesterday.

Wednesday Workout

For the first time since pre-injury I felt like my old self was really back. My legs felt fresh, my lungs felt clear (thankfully most of this sickness crud is gone), and I was able to completely relax on my run.

Wednesday Workout 2

I threw in a few quick sporadic minutes here and there but overall kept it easy.

Our gym just got a few new treadmills so I wanted to try it out today. Wes did his first real workout since coming back from injury so I decided it would be a good day for it.

The best part of the new treadmills are the fans at the top.

Fan on Treadmill

It is positioned perfectly to keep you cool throughout the run.  Our gym gets really warm especially when they are a lot of people there so this really comes in handy! It also seemed to have more “give” then the others which felt better on my legs.

Flat Out Compression

I also tried some new compression socks on the run from Flat Out Compression. They were awesome.


My spirits have really been lifted this week. Lots of great things are coming together, we found a house (signing the lease next week), so far I’ve had some great runs and I have a break from work this weekend to enjoy it!

I would love it if someone would tell whoever is controlling this snowy weather that I am ready for enjoyable and relaxing runs in warmer temperatures and sun. I’m OVER WINTER.


Tell me something great about your week so far!

Ever taken a chance and followed a big dream?
