I think I can, I think I can…

Hello and Happy day to you!

As many of you know, I just (praise the Lord!) recovered from a minor hamstring injury that forced me to pull out of Rock n’ Roll San Diego.


But! I am back running and haven’t had any problems with my hamstring since.


I do, however, feel as though I have lost some fitness.

I am feeling a little off this week. Continue reading


Things That (As A Runner) I Can’t Stand!

Hello and Happy day to you!


As a runner, there are certain things that really piss me off!

My back was hurting a little and all I was thinking about was being done…


I want to sing it from the rooftops! Continue reading

I am the Queen of the See Jane Run Half Marathon!

As many of you know, I am an ambassador for the See Jane Run Half Marathon series.

Instead of being a race ambassador,

I declare that I am Queen of the Race.

You may call me Queen, or Queen Ashley. I will respond to either.

Gym-ing it up and a Crossfit Update!

I, along with many Americans, have a gym membership that I rarely use.

Last year, I used to go to the gym every morning before work…
