Well today the temp hit a high of 45 degrees… life is good! There was even some quality sunshine- much needed. I think that during the winter time we forget how good it feels to just get outside and get some sun rays and fresh air. The simple things in life are the best, they always win out at the end of the day! So what did I do with this beautiful day?


I went on a run. It was refreshing outside that my feet carried me for a solid 5 miles! Spring, please hurry up. I miss being outside all of the time! I’m training for a half marathon this spring… then my the next challenge will be a marathon. I’m so pumped!

Currently lacking: SLEEP. My sleep deficit needs to be restored ASAP.

Currently loving: Peppermint tea… this stuff will wake you up! Probably not as strong as the classic Diet Coke, but it will keep you alert that’s for sure.

Currently inspired by: Malcolm Gladwell. This guy will make you think outside the box, very interesting. Check it out


Inspiration is one of the best tools for success. And it is everywhere, all around you, you just have to be looking for it.
