Working Hard & Running Accomplishments

Working Hard & Running Accomplishments

Happy March, friends! It is officially running season. Woot woot! :) Today's post is about one of my favorite people...our dad! Our dad has always been the hardest working person that I know. He started his business when he was 19 (and our parents wonder why Liz and I want to own business) and grew it into a well respected establishment over the last 37 years. He taught my sister and I that hard work = results. He’s right. As much as I try to take shortcuts, there is no shortcut for hard work. That is what creates results. This...


Think Less, Live More

Think Less, Live More

I think a LOT…sometimes too much, so this is a great reminder to stop thinking and take action when I catch myself overthinking. Does anyone else have that problem, too? In other news, music has been a strong influence in my life right now. I very much appreciate good music and envy anyone who can sing and play beautiful music. I thank my mom for this since she loves music and took my sister and I to a variety of concerts and Broadway shows when we were younger. I use music to motivate me for everything - even getting out...


Stress Reduction Before the New Year

Stress Reduction Before the New Year

Did everyone have a great holiday?? I can't believe that 2016 is almost over! This has been the fastest year of my life. I was talking to a family member about that over the holiday and they said that the years keep getting faster as you get older. I guess that means you have to enjoy each and every moment as much as possible. Carpe diem! I always love this time of year, but it can be stressful, too - so many things to fit in before the year is over, pressure to be part of big celebrations, finances spread thin. This year...


Monday Motivation

Monday Motivation

With a newsfeed full of race photos and a heart full of inspiration, there is only one thing on my mind this morning: the Philadelphia Marathon. Instead of running the marathon this year, I was a spectator. I thought that I would have extreme FOMO (fear of missing out) watching the race this weekend, but I had such a great time cheering for everyone that I was only a teeny tiny bit jealous. (Seeing the elites start the half marathon was super impressive!) (Melissa made a friend along the course.) Several hundred students from Students Run Philly Style and many...


Fall Adventures & Monday Real Talk

Fall Adventures & Monday Real Talk

Do you ever feel like you’re in a rut? That’s how I felt for the past few months. Nothing was going smoothly, even the smallest tasks felt extra tiring, and worst of all, my mind has been foggy. That always scares me more than anything...when I can’t focus and I’m lacking creativity and motivation. Even my confidence and personality were wavering. Then last week something clicked. I haven’t been taking care of myself. It all started around June/July. With all the fun outdoor workout groups going on, I was going to classes or running groups every single day. That sounds...
