Hi Everyone!

Thank you for reading my last and final post.


“It doesn’t get easier… you just get better”

One of the greatest words of wisdom I have ever heard.

If you think about anything you go through in life, you realize that some things come easy and others…not so much.

For instance, when you were a child learning to ride a bike seemed impossible.  But, with practice you became better and now can probably ride it with no problem.

The main thing I hope you got out of my posts and this blog in general is that nothing ever comes easy.  You must work hard and always remain positive.

Yes, you are going to have days where you don’t wanna go on your daily run, where you want to have a brownie, or when you cave and hit the snooze on your alarm.

You’re only human, so you’re going to have off days.

However; you want to get better, you must work for it.

If you do, I promise it will be worth it.

With that being said, I would like everyone to know I have signed up and I am officially doing the Color Me Rad run in Pittsburgh in two months!

It will be my first 5k, so once I am done with school I will be running it!

It is taking place on June 11, 2013 and is already booked!

You haven’t heard of the color me rad run?

Press the following!

If you don’t feel like listening to the audio, the Color Me Rad Run is sponsored by the Ronald Mcdonald Foundation. Sixty percent of the profit made will go to his house of charities in Pittsburgh.

The run takes place at different intervals throughout the day starting at 9:00 AM and ending at 3:00 PM

If you don’t feel like running, don’t worry about it! You can walk or come out just as a volunteer.

Throughout the race there is non-toxic color thrown at the runners.

It is suggested you bring a change of clothes for the car ride home.

So if you feel like having a fun and exciting run with your friends, sign up today!

Since I am the only one active in my family, they are going to come with me and volunteer, so we will still make it a family affair!

Not from Pittsburgh? Don’t worry, there are many different locations all throughout the United States.

I am beyond excited.

Since I do live in Pittsburgh, over the past few months I have went on runs all throughout Pittsburgh and have seen such beautiful sites.

Below is a slideshow of what I have seen.

Thank you so much for looking at my blog, I am truly blessed for all the support and positive feedback on it.

Later on tonight I will be posting my FINAL BLOG POST.

please tune in and give some feedback on it!!

I hope you guys are enjoying the weather.

Please feel free to leave comments.

Thank you so much to everyone who has followed my blog.

Over the past few months I have definitely learned a lot from posting here, and a lot from you guys!

So, thank you once again!


Hey everyone.

I hope you’re having a great week.

The sun is shinning and it is beautiful here!

Below are a few pictures I had to post for class.

The first one shows out of 20 people, how many are from different major cities.

The majority were from Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

Then Boston and Miami.


Below is a graph comparing the similarities of weight gain in college and why.

I think it shows why people in college gain weight, and the two main reasons are eating unhealthy and stress. A lot of people said that because of both they gained weight…which doesn’t surprise me.




The last two I would like to compare is how healthy someone considers themselves versus how many times they work out a week

Hey everyone! So for my blog this week I decided to do statistics for the Pittsburgh Marathon coming up May 5, 2013. 


The Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon course goes through the unique and historic neighborhoods of Pittsburgh. Cheering fans and music throughout the course will welcome runners from all over the world to participate.

Runners will begin racing on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, cross each of the three rivers in Pittsburgh and travel through the South Side, Oakland, Shadyside and Bloomfield neighborhoods.  The course runs along the rivers of the City and challenges you on a hill that takes you into the University area of Pittsburgh. The last five miles of the race are downhill as you return to the downtown area.
