As some of you may know, last year was a difficult one for me. I had many struggles with my health that made it difficult to train for my second half marathon. In the weeks leading up to the race, I got sick again. So, I didn’t get the training in that I’d hoped. I • Read More »

Why are you running?

December 22, 2014 | By Kendra | No Comments | Filed in: Fitness, Inspiration, Life, Running.

On a run several weeks ago, I encountered a family pulling a little girl in a wagon. As I ran past, she said “Hi,” and I said “Hi,” back. Just as I got past her, she said, “Why are you running?” I was in the zone, and already gone by the time her words hit • Read More »

For various health reasons (none of which turned out to be serious, all of which are on their way out), this has been a rough year. I started out running my first half marathon (and the 5K and the 10K…) at the runDisney Princess Half Marathon weekend at Walt Disney World. I was in the • Read More »

Hello everyone! I have noticed some common questions in running groups regarding gear, fueling, etc. and I thought it might help to address some of them here! One question is “What kind of earbuds can I use that will stay in my ears?” I had the same question a year or so ago. Earbuds, earplugs, • Read More »

Finding my way back to running…

A few weeks ago, I started running regularly again. I started out with about 15-20 minutes, because I didn’t want to overdo it and get injured. It was hard…really hard. I got very discouraged, because I thought “If I can’t run for 15 minutes without wanting to quit, how will I ever run a half • Read More »

Doing Nothing, but Staying Strong

As you may have noticed, I have been absent from this blog and from most social media. In February, I completed the Glass Slipper Challenge (10K plus a half marathon…also the 5K for kicks) at Walt Disney World. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life, and I don’t think I’ve ever felt • Read More »

It is Christmastime, the busiest time of the year! As you have probably noticed, I have been crazy busy the last few months, and have unfortunately neglected this blog more than I’d like.

The Roller Coaster We Call Maintenance

October 13, 2013 | By Kendra | 1 Comment | Filed in: Inspiration, Life.

This spring, I reached my goal weight. I was thrilled, relieved, and terrified. Thrilled, because I had worked so long and hard, and had finally achieved my goal. Relieved, because I once thought it wasn’t possible. Terrified, because I had absolutely no clue how to maintain. Losing weight? I had become pretty confident in my • Read More »
