Hi! I'm Amanda, on a journey to becoming fit & finally be happy with myself. I'm currently training for a 10k in November and plan to tackle my first MARATHON in the next year! I would love to have a network of supportive fitblrs so we can encourage and motivate each other. Feel free to say hi anytime! :)

Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?” 

Have I mentioned how cool the trail is by my parents’ house?

I also encountered several deer and almost ran over a turtle.

Nature.

Firm believer that you never need an excuse to dress up and feel good about yourself :)

Anyone can RUN 26 miles, but only a true champion of endurance can STREAM 26 episodes in one sitting.

Exciting things happening this lovely Sunday morning.

First, I ran my fastest mile!!! I cannot describe how happy that makes me. I felt like a “real” runner today lol. Maybe it’s because I felt fantastic in my new chilly weather running clothes. ;)

Second, spotted a funny sign I never noticed before on the Greenway. lol.

Power song of the day: “Bang Bang” by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, & Nicki Minaj
