Do you ever have trouble getting out of bed in the morning?
Do you have big goals, big dreams, but never seem to get it together and actually accomplish them?
Do you look around and desire a life that is full of adventure, success, opportunity, but feel stuck in mediocrity?
Oh friend, me too.
I know the difference between success and mediocrity is in the daily habits. I have read enough personal development (or self-help) books to understand that. The problem is, I WANT more, but I have yet to achieve it. WHY? I’m not putting all that head knowledge into ACTION.
It starts with the snooze button. You know what I’m talking about. You SAY you are getting up early, sounds great at dinnertime, but by the time you actually GO to bed, it’s later than you thought, so you tell yourself you will just get up early the next day. Or, you set your alarm and snooze just one more time….just one more time. All of a sudden, your ambitions for an early start are gone...and you are back where you were yesterday.
What about getting into a healthy routine? Do you find yourself skipping workouts because you don’t plan your time well? Do you stay on track for a while and then fall off? Do you make excuses and refuse to wake up early enough to fit it in? What about meal prep? What about accountability for all that? Yup. I get it! I totally do.
While I would consider myself a morning person, I am also a chronic procrastinator, time-waster, and never seem to stick to my own schedule. Call it hazards of self-employment. When I had heard of this book called, “The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM),” by Hal Elrod, I kept the idea in the back of my mind for a long time. I can’t honestly tell you what brought it to the forefront now, but here it is!
The idea behind “The Miracle Morning” is taking the 'best practices'—developed over centuries of human consciousness development—and condensing the 'best of the best; into a daily morning ritual. What's being widely regarded as "one of the most life changing books ever written" may be the simplest approach to achieving everything you've ever wanted, and faster than you ever thought possible. Seriously? Yes.
What if you could wake up tomorrow and any—or EVERY—area of your life was beginning to transform? What would you change? What if you could learn how to wake up each day with more ENERGY, MOTIVATION, and FOCUS to take your life to the next level? It’s been right here in front of us all along, but this book has finally brought it to life.
Okay, but what does this have to do with health and fitness? Everything.
My job as a coach is to teach you simple principles that you can apply to your everyday life in order to help you become the healthiest version of yourself. This includes clean eating, meal planning and prep, top-notch nutrition, and workouts you can do right from your home in as little as 22-60 minutes.
The BEST part about what I do is that I can run my own challenge groups in whatever way I wish (one of the many perks of being a business owner!). I want to help you develop your Miracle Morning so that you can be SUCCESSFUL in your health/fitness goals, and even in your life goals!
This special 35-day challenge will begin on Monday, APRIL 17TH. I will walk you through a PREP WEEK, so that you can take baby steps to ensure we start Week 1 off with a bang. We will talk about how to quit the snooze button and get ready to start our own Miracle Morning routines.
On Monday, APRIL 24TH, we will begin Week 1 with our Miracle Morning and each day will have special focus on one of the six practices: SILENCE, AFFIRMATIONS, VISUALIZATIONS, EXERCISE, READING, and SCRIBING. On Sundays, we will evaluate the previous week and set intentions for the next.
During this group, we will be using “The Miracle Morning” book so that you have all of the resources you need to have this fresh new start. When you join the challenge by April 14th, I will send you the book as my FREE GIFT to you!
Not only will you have a proven routine set for never missing a workout, but you will also be set up to have success in all areas of your life! Say “good-bye” to mediocrity because YOU, my friend, are made for GREATNESS!

Oh, RTB...how I love thee…
This is the fourth year I have raced with champions...horses, that is! In 2014, I signed up for this Lexington, Kentucky race, mostly because my local running friends are awesome for some peer pressure. I soon found out that this is one of THE BEST races around! The course is the most challenging “rolling hills” I have ever run, but I keep coming back. Why? It is a first-rate, class act event. Seriously.
First, I thought it was just for the awesome bling (which, I mean, take a look...these medals are GORGEOUS, heavy, and super classy). But, really, the hoodies over the last three years are my FAV swag from any race; super comfy and wearable year-round. The Expo has grown to include some big name companies, local companies, and highlight other amazing running events around the eastern part of the country. In the last two years, my favorite running skirt company, SparkleSkirts, has been there, saving me shipping costs on new skirts (yay!). The medals are always on display at the expo, plus plenty of Run the Bluegrass merchandise and photo ops. While the expo is not the size of a big city, like Pittsburgh, it is PERFECT for Lexington.
In previous years, I have stayed in Lexington, with friends or at a hotel. This year, my friend was coming to race with me and we stayed at my home, 1.5 hrs from Keeneland Horse Park. The race start is one of the latest starts at 9:00am, so we left the house at 6:30am to allow time for parking, bathroom, etc. As it turned out, we were parked so far away that it took a while to get up to the hospitality tents and the porta-potties up there. The race area is well-laid out, with the start and finish separated, but hospitality tents near the finish line. My local running group had one of those tents, so instead of gear check, I left my post-race bag up there. We had barely enough time to stop at the porta-potties, but finally made it to the starting corrals just in time.
The weather was cool at about 40 degrees, but I knew I would warm up and wore a tank and skirt. It took about 2-3 miles to warm up, and even longer for my hands. I kinda wish I had worn throw-away gloves. The starting area was extremely packed with runners and our first mile reflected the crowd. Over 5,000 runners total for this “little” race (including the kids race, 3.65 mile race, 7-milers, and half marathoners). I love to see RTB gain well-deserved popularity.
The goal for this race was simply to have fun. With it being my fourth year, I realized that I had never really ENJOYED it. I was always just enduring the hills and fighting for my time. Since I was running with my friend, who is training distance to do a 100-miler this fall, I planned to run at whatever her pace was and enjoy the view. I asked her what her PR time was, and she said around 2:15. I asked what she wanted for this race, and said it didn’t matter, but 2:10 would be really great. Okay then, 2:10 it is! My previous times were 2:26, 2:40-something with a stomach bug, and in 2016 I smashed my course PR with a 2:08. With my training being what it has been this spring 2017 season, I knew we could hit 2:10.
So, along the way, we talked, laughed, shared life, stopped at some water stops, stopped to take pictures of the course and the horses, and I tried to give her a heads up on each turn or hill. I truly enjoyed this race. The hills were still there, but I had never actually run WITH someone on this course before, so the company kept me occupied and motivated to keep climbing. There are 33 hills on this course. Some would say they are more like “mountains.” Mile 9 is the steepest and longest, but we took it by storm! I was really proud of us! After that, the hills continued through Mile 10, and by Mile 11 I knew we would hit the 2:10 goal, and it looked like we could get closer to 2:08. My legs were feeling those hills and I stopped talking to focus on the last two miles. Mile 12 felt SO much better than previous years. In fact, I sprinted to the finish line, just in case I could beat my previous 2:08 time. I did. 2:08:29, 15 seconds faster than the previous year. My sweet friend hit 2:08:44 and SMASHED her overall half marathon PR by over 5 minutes! We hugged, celebrated, and took pictures to commemorate this incredible race. It was truly a great day!
Even though I didn’t “race” Run the Bluegrass, I really loved the whole experience, AND hit a course PR. I think I learned that sometimes you need to just relax and have fun, and even with photo stops, you can set a record! This is one race that will keep me coming back, because the beauty, the challenge….it’s worth repeating.
