I noticed my neighbor Talia starting to include weekly jogs into her workout routine, so of course, I had to encourage her every chance I got. I'm always so proud to see people taking charge of their health and fitness, and I could tell Talia was determined. During our exchange, she mentioned wanting to run … Continue reading miles of smiles
Thank you to Paul Smith for capturing this video during the HURT Triple Trek race; a 30-mile trail race I completed on August 31, 2019. https://www.facebook.com/100032497213140/videos/154487365644503/

I used to be a decent runner. My best half marathon was 1:57. My best Honolulu marathon … Continue reading gratitude

It's GO time. Life with an #ostomy is going great! Each week, I get stronger and fitter. I eat without pain. I eat without … Continue reading aloha Friday wow (workout of the week)
My first race was this past Sunday, running 6.2 miles for the Sharon's Run.Ride.Walk. for Epilepsy. It is a small race where you will always find a parking spot and never wait in a bathroom line. My love and hate for racing is one and the same; I always push my hardest in a race. Everything in my … Continue reading prs & life patterns
