Disclaimer: I received entry to the 2019 Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Half Marathon to review as part of being a BibRavePro. Learn more about becoming a BibRavePro (ambassador) and check out BibRave.com to review, find and write reviews!

Hello, lovelies, I hope you’re having an amazing holiday season!! Ours has been wonderful … crazy hectic, but wonderful!

Something I’ve been meaning to share is the video chat I had with Kimberly about the 2019 Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Half Marathon, an amazing race we plan on repeating next year! It was so much easier to just turn on the camera rather than include everything in a blog post! And we had lots to talk about, apparently, because it’s 32 minutes long. 😉

Weekly Workout Recap and Injury Update!

Right now, it’s a beautiful morning in San Antonio and I’m enjoying a lovely cup of coffee outside on a porch swing and questioning why we live in a cold state! I could seriously get used to this awesome warm weather!

CORRECTION: We were in Texas last weekend but now I’m in Maryland where the weather isn’t as lovely! That was the opening of my original recap that I was supposed to publish last Sunday but in all of our travel fun, I forgot to flip the switch. Doh! So I’m doubling down this Sunday to catch up.

Weekly Workout Recap and Thanks!

Happy Sunday evening, lovelies, I hope you had an AMAZING Thanksgiving!

Ours was fantastic and I have so much to be thankful for! My wonderful husband and two boys, family and friends who love me unconditionally, my home, my health, the many places I’ve traveled to this year … including Paris, the miles I’ve run, the laughs I’ve had, for turning a fabulous 50-years-old this year, and for YOU!!!

I’m also thankful for getting a grip on my mental health and gaining clarity on the direction I want to go for my next 50 years! In order to do so, I had to take a step back from social media and Joyful Miles work for the past few months … my apologies, I just needed to catch my breath and focus on myself for a while.

I can’t believe it, it’s over. The Chicago Marathon has come and gone and I’m sitting here reflecting on my journey and smiling so much.

I got an opportunity to run the Chicago Marathon as a bib race pro. It would be running as part of Team in Training a fundraising program for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I would be responsible for raising 1750 but Bibrave would help if I was short. I figured I would be short but was so surprised and just overwhelmed by how much my friends and family donated. I went above the minimum required. Remember this if you’re ever considering running for a charity. People are so generous.
