I am running for every mom, as a mom, who has had to see their baby endure chemo. I am running for every mom, as a mom, who has had to wear a paper hospital gown just to touch their baby. I am running for every mom, as a mom, who did not get to bring their baby home. I run in memory of my youngest son and cherish everyday with my oldest one. Join me in my adventures through motherhood, family life, and the challenges of being a 30-something athlete.

Open For Business
I spoke with my supervisor at the YMCA last week and told her I really wanted to quit my day job after Memorial Day and begin my personal training business. I told her I wasn't sure if that would happen because I need enough business to justify leaving a stable paycheck. She stated that they have a lot of day time hours available at my Y and that she would set me up with several day time fitness classes to teach as well as put me on the list to be a daytime personal trainer at the Y which I could do along with my private business if I was interested.
Told the hubby the news, he said he could support that...
Officially put in my 2 week notice at my day job
The demons in my head have begun chattering...
Having heart palpitations.
I am leaving a secure paycheck!
Am I in good enough shape to be some one's trainer?
Am I insane?
While having a panic attack I got the opportunity to run a booth at a local company's Girls Night Out. Brochures for Kendall Personal Fitness...yes, my company's name...got placed in over 100 gift bags and I had 30-40 women put their info in for a drawing to win free personal training by me, and I ended up seeing a few friend who all took my brochure and told me that they were proud on me.
My brother-in-law designed my logo, built me a website, and helped me design brochures. The website was launched in time for the event as well! I have to pay him in Red Bull and provide my sister with a personal trainer after the baby comes. Totally do-able!!
