5 days ago ... I'm a runner, a triathlete, a Disney Fan, and a curvy girl just trying to have fun in life. And maybe lose a few pounds along the way.

    December Link Roundup

    elbowglitter.com 14 Dec '17, 2pm

    It has been way too long since I’ve done a link roundup and man, do I have a lot of things saved, and a lot of things I’ve missed. I’m going to try to start getting these posts out more often, maybe every month or every other month. It would definitely help if I kept up on my blog rea...

    How Not to Give the Gift of Fitness

    elbowglitter.com 11 Dec '17, 7pm

    If you have a friend who knows you take yoga classes but has never shown any interest in your classes, don’t give them the “gift” of a class for Christmas. There is a solid chance they have zero interest in yoga, and you forcing them with a “gift” sort of takes away the meaning of the...

    Things that cause confusion in airport security December 8, 2015 Unsplash / Pixabay Just a quick update today. It’s been a whirlwind few days with a lot of travel, a lot of eating, a lot of time with family and friends, and zero workouts. I learned a few entertaining things while trav...

  • On Sexual Harassment

    elbowglitter.com 01 Dec '17, 2pm

    Neither of these two incidents are as heinous as some of the many stories coming out in the press. But I share them to show just how pervasive sexual harassment is for women. These are not the only two incidents that have happened to me. I have worked with men who believed it was fine...

    Sort of a Race Report - Revenge of the Penguins

    Now, onto the running. This weekend, I ran the Revenge of the Penguins ten miler. I don’t know that I would say that I raced it. This was a small local ten and twenty mile race that I got roped into because Jen needed a twenty miler for her marathon training. I wasn’t about to run twe...

    Race Report - Rock 'n' Roll USA

    Saturday was Rock ‘n’ Roll USA here in DC. It was my first DC half, and my 20th half overall. The day was a huge mess of highs and lows. Friday night, I got a phone call that my Aunt Cathy had taken a turn for the worse and her battle with terminal breast cancer was coming to an end. ...

  • Motivation Monday - If Your Dreams Don't Scare You

    elbowglitter.com 12 Nov '17, 4pm

    I have the same big, scary dream! The WDW Marathon in January will be my first marathon. I have run multiple half marathons, but for the longest time, I could not psych myself up in signing up for and actually training for a marathon. So it’s less than 80 days away, and training is go...

  • What a difference a week makes

    elbowglitter.com 10 Nov '17, 2pm

    Admittedly, if I had to choose one or the other, I’d take the cool rain any day, though I may be in the minority on that one. But now I’m having the “I have no idea what to wear” issues. For a while I thought I would wear my water resistant jacket (as the water proof jacket would just...
