Review: Jabra Elite Sport Earbuds

Disclosure: Thanks to Jabra, I received a pair of Jabra Elite Sport earbuds in an exchange for a review on Lisa Runs for Cupcakes.   I did not receive any additional compensation. As always, my opinions are my own. This summer, upon arriving in Georgia, I welcomed the opportunity to test out the Elite Sport earbuds from Jabra. Thanks to a hectic summer of moving, no internet at our brand new house for two months (gasp – we survived!), and {Read More}

Moving: Georgia On My Mind

Well, I feel as though, I just wrote a post about moving and settling into a new location.  Oh wait, I did!  Just last summer, we relocated from New York to Kansas.  And, this summer we moved from Kansas to GEORGIA!  In good news, we should be a here for a few years.  But, then again, with the military, you can never be too certain how long you will stay in any location. So, just like last year, I present {Read More}

Motherhood and Finding Balance

When I think about motherhood, for me, it is all about balance. For those of you that are new to my page, I like to juggle a lot. My plate, like yours, is full. I’m a mom to a vibrant 6 year-old and married to an active duty service member. Let’s just say that we move around the country quite a bit….too often for my taste. And, I also have a wonderful social work career serving the military families in {Read More}

Race Recap: 2017 Rock the Parkway

When we moved to Kansas this year, I decided to sign up for the Heartland Race Series. The series consists of three half marathons over the course of five weeks, 2017 Rock the Parkway, the Garmin Half Marathon, and the Running with the Cows. This would allow me to cross off Kansas and Missouri from my unofficial running bucket list. Plus, I really wanted to find my running mojo this year. When I first started my blog, I ran ALL {Read More}

February 2017 Update

How is it already February 2017?  Mid-February at that!  I swear, it is getting harder and harder to carve out space to sit down and write out my thoughts on my blog these days.  Don’t get me wrong.  Life is full.  Full of wonderful things like digging into a training plan {finally!}, spending time with family and friends, and spending lots of time at my wonderfully fulfilling and equally exhausting job. Yet, life is also full of uncertainty.  I feel {Read More}

Why YOU should run a 2017 ZOOMA race!

The ZOOMA Women’s Race series is one of the very first races that took me on as an ambassador in 2012.  It’s pretty hard to believe that this blog is quickly approaching its 5th birthday!  And, ZOOMA Annapolis is approaching it’s 10th birthday!  So far, I participated in the ZOOMA Annapolis Half marathon three times and the 10k for the first time this past June.  Since I didn’t recap my 2016 race, I thought I would share why I believe it’s {Read More}

Goodbye 2016

It’s hard to believe that the year is coming to a close. Yet, I’m happy to say goodbye 2016. This year was filled with the loss of a loved one that impacted me in more ways that I would like to admit. And, our family moved to Kansas to take on new jobs.  This led to the other significant loss of leaving behind our home in West Point and the family and friends nearby. Yet, with loss, comes new experiences. As {Read More}
