Well I am off to a great start this month with our 30-Day Challenge! I have already lost 3lbs (woo hoo) and am really excited to see how far I can push myself this month. I signed up recently for a fun race and another 50k. If you haven't heard of the Warrior Dash - you should definitely check out their website.

It's a mix between a 5k and an urban race. I signed up with other friends and it should just be a mud fest of laughter! I am finding that it's important to mix training with fun. Just as mixing business with personal time.

I'm heading out to Los Angeles and Atlanta next week and looking forward to running in both cities. Both for completely different reasons and seasons. LA should be dry and warm, where ATL will be hot and humid. Running across the country this Summer will be good for training.

I can tell you that the way I'm feeling now - is awesome! A few days ago when I was on a trail run, my legs felt really strong and my cardio is getting better and better. I've been riding on my off days in slow gears to really use my quads and hams. I think it's helping my overall running and I'm happy for that. I still run an 8-10 miler a week to keep my progression rolling forward and this weekend I have an 11-miler on the books. I'm looking forward to it.

With the 30-day challenge ,, my 50k, upcoming travel schedule - I am one busy sales girl!


  1. Hi Michele! I am following your 30-Day Challenge on Facebook and it's awesome! You are definitely an inspiration and just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all the great tips! I wanted to ask you, have you ever heard of Enagic and Kangen water? Your drive for your health is amazing, and I recently learned of this company from Japan. Not only do they manufacture the most amazing water ionizer in the world, but there is also an amazing sales opportunity for those who would like to be involved in the company and tell others about it! I've been on the alkaline water about a month now, my energy is soaring, I'm sleeping better and losing weight and it is absolutely by far the best purchase I've ever made. I wanted to look you up on Facebook but I couldn't figure out a way to message you so then I found your blog. If you would like to check out all the health benefits of Kangen Water, you can go to or My phone number is (949) 842-8771 if you'd ever like to talk to me about it. I've always wanted to be more healthy and the super-hydrating and detoxifying qualities of this alkaline, antioxidant water are making my fiance and I feel better than ever. Have a great week, and good luck with your training! I admire you!

  2. I want to clarify, Enagic has been in business in Japan for over 35 years, and expanded to the US in 2003. Seriously, you ought to look into it for your health's sake (there are people in the company all over the US that will let you try the water for free for 21-30 days to see if it helps you and I can put you in touch with one of them). In addition, given your sales and networking skills, and the company's phenomenal compensation, if you chose you could use it to make some extra money. It's an amazing company seeking to help people around the world. Take care Michele and make it a great Monday:)
