One Of My Favorite Workout

The above is one of my favorite workouts. Working out the entire body -
Repeat #1 - #6 four times and then repeat #7 - #12 four times.
It is about a 45 minutes workout burning from 300 - 400 calories.

JFK Runway Run - My Official Tenth 5K

Within the crow of over 1,100 participants
On Sunday, April 6, 2014, I officially did my tenth 5K - "The JFK Runway Run". 

By now you might think that after my 10th race I  should be a "PRO" at this, and even though that might be the case, I must confess this run was different for me for many unexpected reasons. 

Running on a big free space such as a JFK runway is amazing.  You are able to connect to your most inner thoughts.  Even though there were over 1,100 people you feel like you are there alone with your thoughts which bring many emotions to the surface.

Sweaty Bands®: Product Review

I am sure that many of you will identify with sweating profusely when you are working out and your hair coming into your face even though it is up.

I have tried several head bands, but just recently I came across a band that caught my eye. Even their name is catchy--- Sweaty Bands®.  They are colorful with many beautiful patterns and different designs.  Sweaty Bands® come in so many different colors that it is hard just to choose one alone.

The Sweaty Bands® can be hand washed and drip dried.  You can use it over and over again. They come in different sizes (wide & thin).

M M Manhattan Hot Chocolate - My Ninth 5K Race

M-M-Mahattan Hot Chocolate 5K
This post is a little late, but I sometimes get so overwhelmed with everything on my plate.  One of these day I will be more structured.  Yeah! Right. :)

On February 1, 2014 I did my ninth official 5K-- "M-M-Manhattan Hot Chocolate 5K" at Riverside Park in NY.  I have done this exact race last year earning me the award of first place for females in my age group.

This years winter has been quite brutal so it has been hard for me to run - I'm not using the weather as an excuse because my ultimate goal is to always finish my races no matter what.
