Stylish Saturday: Sporty Chic

Stylish Saturday is here.  I am so excited about fall and being able to get outside, run, and enjoy this beautiful weather.  Since I am all about running right now I thought I would share some sporty chic outfits for this Stylish Saturday.  Today I have something for everyone's budget and style.

Fitness Friday: My Half Marathon Experience


  Happy Friday ya'll.  This week I just want to share my half marathon experience for Fitness Friday.  Let me just say, I love to run, but I was really nervous to do a race.  I don’t really like running in crowds and running is my time to clear my mind.  So, doing a big race just seemed like it wasn’t going to be my thing.  I am on my fourth and longest race now and honestly, I love it.  If you have never run or walked a race, YOU SHOULD.  The feeling of accomplishment when you cross that finish line is like nothing else.  I can’t help but, look at my medal and smile.  I just ran 13.1 miles.  I ran the whole way and never gave up.  Believe me it was tough, there were times I wanted to give up but, I didn't.  I kept going.  I finished in 2 hours 11 minutes, averaging a 10 minute mile.  Guess what?  Now, I feel like I can do anything.  It has given me a new sense of determination.  I don’t know if I am ready for a full marathon just yet, but I have bigger and better goals set for everything in my life.  I want to take a moment to thank everyone that helped me accomplish this, my husband, my girls, my running friends, and Adulttutus.com for the perfect tutu for my diva race.

Great Boots for Fall

  It is totally fall now in the District.  The leaves are falling in our front yard and as I sit here typing this post, I'm wearing a boyfriend sweater and jeans.  I have my apple cinnamon scentsy burning and my Halloween decorations are up.  I am one happy momma.  For today, I thought why not spread the fall love with my top boot picks for fall.  Some popular boot styles you can find this fall season are cutout boots, ankle booties, textured boots and over the knee boots.  What boots would you love to get your hands on this year?

Stylish Saturday: Casual Jeans and a Shirt

School started this week for everyone so I fell a little  behind on posts so, I'm writing this right now two hours after my half marathon.  I have little words today.  I am exhausted.  I will share the whole experience with you next week for Fitness Friday.  All I have to say is getting up at 4am to go run 13.1 miles is pure madness.  This week it's a casual jeans and a shirt for Stylish Saturday.

Fitness Friday: Top Tips To Be Race Day Ready

Today is the day before my first half marathon.  I'm excited and nervous all at the same time.  I have done other races 5K, 10K, and a 15K.  I feel semi-ready for tomorrow.  I just wish I would have fit in a few more runs in the past three weeks.  As for the pre-day race I have a routine that I like to follow to prepare myself for the big day.
