I'm Baaaacccckk

First post in a long time. Had been so busy with work, training, school, certifications, etc but hopefully I will be able to having something new here often!

Since my last post I completed my AS in Business, received a certification in Sports Nutrition, certification in Group Fitness, became certified in R.I.P.P.E.D. (a group fitness format) and started a coaching endeavor with Mom’s on the Run. Also took courses in running injuries and heart rate training. I have been learning a lot!!

I have also been completing a lot of race events. My running goals for 2015 is to run 100+ miles per month (did it all of 2014) and do at least one race event in every month, with a total of 30+ for 2015.
In the coming weeks and months I hope to share with you all information to help you in your fitness and running goals, as well as, write review of the events I participate in. Maybe even some product reviews: shoes and accessories mostly.

I’ll just begin this with a list of the events I have and will do for 2015. Later I will give some reviews on my experiences with the ones I have already done. 2014 was my year of endurance and it seems 2015 is my year of variety. Planning ahead I am hoping to make 2016 my year of speed!
