The Beginning of My Journey

Hi Y’all,

So, I’ve been telling my fitness journey for a little over a year. I know I have made reference to treatment, etc, but I haven’t told how I got started on this journey. Continue reading “The Beginning of My Journey”

TJ Tells It: Week in Review #7

Hi Y’all,

I took it easy this week.   Not a single day of book ending my day with workouts. I tend to just keep pushing but I thought…it may be smart to listen to my body and take it easy.   Continue reading “TJ Tells It: Week in Review #7”

TJ Tells It: Week in Review #6

Hi y’all!

Last week included my favorite running day of the year–Global Running Day! I absolutely love it for the pure fun of the day. The other days were really just a warm up and recovery with a fitness birthday party. Doesn’t everyone celebrate birthdays with exercise?!?!?  Continue reading “TJ Tells It: Week in Review #6”

Global Running Day 2017: 5 Runs, 7 Wardrobe Changes, and a Whole lot of Fun

2 men 2 women holding up 4 fingersDear Global Running Day,

You are my favorite. It is the day that some people try this thing called running for the very first time. It’s the day that some people return to running after a hiatus. It’s the day that those who continuously run renew their love with like-minded people. More importantly, it is the day of the year that I get the least amount of sleep and go through the most of my summer running gear. Continue reading “Global Running Day 2017: 5 Runs, 7 Wardrobe Changes, and a Whole lot of Fun”

TJ Tells It: Week in Review #5

This week was one of those weeks where non-running/fitness activities took over. It was book-ended by 2 runs. I started with the Inaugural Urban Tree Cidery 5K and finished with a thunderstorm interrupted run. Ordinarily, I would be super stressed out that I’m falling back into my pre-workout days of more couch time than moving time.

TJ Tells It: Week In Review #4

Hi Y’all,

My week included some vacation time from work, but it didn’t stop my fitness journey.  Boy did I need that time away from work!!! It was nice to get in my workouts without working so many hours on top of it.  Sleeping in was nice too! Continue reading “TJ Tells It: Week In Review #4”

TJ Tells It: Week in Review #3

Woman putting the shot putMy week started out slowly but I felt like I realized progress in my FitWit workouts.  It was a stark contrast from the week before without a single two-a-day (well at least not two hard workouts 12 hours apart). I enjoy this week just as much as last. I kept pushing myself and moving forward even when other parts of life were not in my favor.

TJ Tells It: Week in Review #2

Woman running on track Week in Review #2Hi y’all,

I hit a record number of eight workouts in the week with 2 rest/stretch days.  I’m not saying I recommend it. In reality, it sort of just happened. I didn’t intentionally planned it. It really wasn’t until Friday evening that I realized what I had done… Continue reading “TJ Tells It: Week in Review #2”

TJ Tells It: Quick Report from the Track #1

TJ Tells It: Week in Review #1

Hi y’all!

Group of Women Runners

So I thought I would give the Week in Review a try to share my fitness journey with you.  I tend to keep busy and sometimes I think it’s a good idea to do more than 1 workout in a  day.  You would think that would be the hardest part of my week. Continue reading “TJ Tells It: Week in Review #1”
