Long Time No Talk!

Hey Girlfriend… Long Time No Talk!

How have you been, whats new, update me, update me, I want to know everything!

You know that moment when you finally catch up with a girlfriend that you haven’t seen in ages…and it starts to set in JUST HOW LONG its actually been!?  Thats kinda how I feel about opening up my dashboard to this lovely little blog again.  For ages now, friends and family have been asking when they’ll get another little slice of my blogging heaven (haha), but for some reason I just wasn’t feelin it.  My blogging SWAGGER was off!

I’ve gone through some pretty big changes in my life (i.e.: becoming a full time student and spending less time getting paid to flash my…PEARLY WHITES!  Heads out of the gutter kids!!).  Up until this point, I didn’t really know what direction I would want to take Sarah Not So Plain And Tall.  Then the lightbulb went off…I’ve got lots of fun information to share, so why stress about focusing on just one thing!?  I’m excited to continue writing about my healthy lifestyle journey (because it truly is that…A LIFELONG journey), but also include snippets of  Los Angeles: the beautiful city that I call home and little anecdotal stories about My So Called Life (haha, SERIOUSLY though…think of the most ridiculous things that could happen in any situation…I’m pretty sure its happened to me!).

I’m excited to be back, and even more excited to share another little update…I’m training for my first HALF MARATHON!!!!  I’ve had this on my ‘bucket list’ FOREVER, but never really took the initiative to officially sign up for one.  Since I’m back in school, I felt it was time to shake things up and set a new goal for myself.  When I set my mind to something I’m usually pretty successful at achieving it, especially when there is a plan put in place!  I’m currently on week three of my training plan, so the milage hasn’t become too difficult yet (looking at the 10 miler on my calendar is a little nerve racking, I’m not going to lie).  Even though I’ve never pushed my body that far, I WILL be running the 13.1 miles on November 10th in the Malibu Half Marathon (Malibu, I know…not too shabby!).  The course looks beautiful, and ends at one of my favorite beaches, Zuma Beach!  Check it out…and let me know if I might see you on race day!

Any-who…I could go on forever (if you’ve ever talked to me, you know I’m great a babbling), so I leave you with this for today.  A great quote about setting goals from one of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson:

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”

Use the power of positive thinking to enhance your life and the lives of others!

    Congratulations on committing to a Half Marathon! Once you start running more than 6, you’ll develop a so-called runner’s high, where you feel like you can run forever! I’ve run 3 half marathons and love that feeling! If you need any training tips or advice just ask! After the three half’s, I decided to make a new challenge and go for the full! October 13 I am running the Chicago Marathon!! Go running!

      Audrey, thats AMAZING!! You go girl! I can’t wait to hear how the Marathon goes…maybe one day I’ll be joining you on that mission! For now…I’m excited to finish this challenge :)
      I’ll be sure to hit you up for any running tips! I’ve been working with a trainer to strengthen my legs to avoid my typical knee problems…so we will see!
      Have you tried compression socks!? I’m curious as to what all the hype is about!

    Why won’t you be modeling anymore? I’m so surprised, you were so good. That’s awesome about the half marathon, man I don’t think I could ever do that! haha go you!

      Thanks hun! I certainly did enjoy modeling, but it was important to me that I get my degree before I get too old ;) Maybe I’ll go back to it after school, but for now I’m focusing on my studies!
