Badass Blog

Dreams come true.

Sometimes, God is subtle. Other times, he kinda sticks it right up in your face like a whipped cream pie. Today was like that. First, Sir Burpee and I got all down in the dumps after the orthopedist delivered the very bad news that he does in fact knee surgery on his right knee — to […]

2015 Race Season Kickoff: Chloe, Trent, and why Tallahassee rocks

I kicked off my first race of 2015 this morning with about 1,000 other runners/walkers/joggers, and it will probably end up being my slowest 5k of the year at 26:43. And guess what? I am loving that. Because I got to start the race with BadassBabes and other running friends, and I got to start […]

Floating kneecaps, pounding pavement, and a new TRX butt kicker

“You have floating kneecaps.” Sounds horrible, right? Well that’s what the vet told Sir Burpee this week after we went to see why he’s been hobbling on one of his back legs occasionally when he tries to play too rough or jump up on his back legs. Yeah, can you tell how thrilled we both […]

This blogger’s not dead; Just chasing goals, cherishing moments

HELLO! I’m not dead! This blog didn’t go kaput! Yes it’s been about a month since I blogged. Yes that’s long enough to make a reader THINK the blog is done. But sometimes life’s goals take precedence. Sometimes there are simply not enough hours in the day. And sometimes, more important moments with loved ones […]

Kicks Review: Staying Fit and Fierce with Asics GEL-Fit Sanas

As much as I could live in my workout clothes from sun up to sun down, there’s something fun about getting dolled up now and then! But what if fitness wear could let us feel kind of dolled up? Feminine, but fierce. Flirty, but ready to work it OUT and get down to business. What […]

Need muscle recovery? Make these Chocolate Mint Muscle Cookies!

  I really like cookies. Yes, as much as I stick to a mostly Paleo and grain-free, low sugar eating plan, I can go to town on a really good cookie. This was the scene in our conference room at Moore Communications Group this week: Wow. So. Many. Cookies. We did a cookie exchange party […]

Celebrating miles, milestones and Badass temples

Lesson learned from Saturday’s Red Nose half marathon in tiny Thomasville, Georgia: Bigger isn’t always better, and the miles fly by when you spend them reflecting on what has been an amazing and blessed year. Check out the start line for us half marathoners:    The half marathon was among the smallest I’ve ever been […]

Stress, Bake, Run, Repeat…and the SWEETEST final Christmas giveaway!

Hello, Friday! You could not come soon enough. It’s been a tough week, plus this weekend is just going to be too good to wait any longer. My last 2014 half marathon, the BA Fitness Studio Christmas Party, wrapping the gifts for our Christmas Connection family on Sunday…yes, another packed but FUN weekend awaits! But […]

Paying it forward, and a ‘pay it forward’ giveaway!

Yesterday reduced me to tears. But in a really good way. The “crying because this amazing thing is happening” kind of way. All because the lights stayed on in a very special home here in Tallahassee. See, the BA Fitness studio is adopting a local family for Christmas. And since last week, I’ve been in […]

11 Miles in 3 Acts, Shower Pill saves the day, and another giveaway!

Sometimes you just have to make it happen. Whatever “it” is, life tries to get in the way and the easier way is to just throw our hands up and say “Oh well!” Tuesday I had to make 11 miles happen. But I also had to unexpectedly sub an early morning IndoRow class at the […]
