A bit of trailing exhaustion and/or fatigue has gotten in the way of doing anything somewhat routine. After my short half mile pool session yesterday, I felt a bit under the weather because I was convinced that I might've caught some dreaded germs from the water. I felt a bit lethargic today but just chalked it … Continue reading Planning for Rev3, Personal Training Certification, and More
Hey ladies and gents! I just posted a new vlog after a year-long hiatus. (Warning: it's pretty much the same thing I'm blogging here.) So after reading about a friend who just joined Team in Training for Goofy's Race and a Half Challenge next January, I clicked through to another blog from a charity runner … Continue reading Would you be interested in joining my virtual training team?
This weekend's race was a lot of fun! It was my first small race (less than 50 participants) and it was mostly women-focused. The race was more of a "run your own race" sort of event, with distances of 5K, 10K, 15K, and a half marathon.

Speed is relative but for some reason, a 10K doesn't psych me out nearly as much as a 5K, 13.1, or 26.2. For some reason, I feel most at ease … Continue reading The 10K Sweet Spot: My Varied History
Man, what a week that was. A lot of stress coupled with not enough sleep or nutrition makes for a very cranky Amara. I hope to get some of that on track in the upcoming week. So my diet has primarily consisted of mushy things, like shakes, scrambled eggs, yogurt, pudding, soup, etc. I've grown … Continue reading Kicking Off The First Race Of The Season
So after a bit of debate, and even a bit of opinion crowdsourcing, I've decided to go ahead with the Rock 'n Roll Marathon Arizona. Although not as grandiose as the Disney Goofy Challenge, I figure that can wait for another year (maybe next) when I'm a bit more prepared both physically and financially. It'd also be … Continue reading Desert Double Down with Dress For Success
