Don’t Come At Me With Your “Diets“

Or your cleanses. Or your meal plans. Or your supplements. I’ve tried lots of things for my body over the years. I’ve also not given my body the respect it deserves. I’ve treated it badly and denied it what it needs to sustain me. Even during training for races, I know I haven’t eaten enough. …

Been a While

I realized today that it has been a while since I’ve posted. Things are moving along. I am still in therapy. Learning a lot about myself. My daughter is doing better. She has been diagnosed with ADHD, so we are navigating this together. She is struggling with what she wants to do with her life …

Running as a Mentor

This year, I applied to be a Team Myles Mentor (Blue Nose Marathon). After my amazing experience with the Team late last year as an Ambassador, and a nudge from one of the previous mentors, I decided to share my love of Team Myles and running with others. The Ambassadors apply and can run the …

And She Did It

It’s been a few weeks since my 10km race. It’s taken me that long to process this journey, one that I needed to go on to find my running mojo again. Running with Team Myles was an amazing experience. One I will never forget. I’ve made some new running friends, and I’ve even joined a …

Fall Equals…Anxiety??

I love fall! So many great things about this season. The trees changing, the crisp air, and of course, Halloween! I am getting closer to my 10k race in November. Looking forward to running with all my peeps in Team Myles 💚 For some reason though, I am full of anxiety. Like over the top …

And I Hurt Myself

Smiling but in pain So, in true Amy fashion, I hurt myself last week on my Saturday run. Things were going great during the out and back route in Point Pleasant Park. Then we ran down a significant hill. We had a small flat area, and the started up a small incline…. That’s when I …

Team Myles Ambassador

I’m a Team Myles Ambassador for 2021! I am very excited for this opportunity, because I had fallen off of the consistency wagon when it came to running. My mental health was suffering as a result. When I saw the moment applications were open, I jumped on it, not knowing if it would be accepted. …

Running? Really?

I ran an actual “in person” race recently. It was a small event, with three different distances (4km, 6km, 8km). It was a lot of beach running. I did the 4km distance because who am I kidding, my running has been subpar lately. I knew in my inner being that the smallest distance would be …

Weighted

I’ve gained weight. Gone up 4 sizes as a matter of fact. It’s happened over the past few years. As part of my journey to self acceptance, I’ve struggled with this extra weight on my body. Societal issues with body image has done a number on my head, and it hasn’t been easy accepting where …

So Done

Full of fatigue. Lacking motivation. Fighting my depression. Navigating this pandemic. I’m so done. Done with feeling like I can’t do anything about how I’m feeling. I go in circles. A time where I’m feeling good and think I have everything under some semblance of control. I can handle a lot of things I cannot …
