June 22nd was my best friend, Tawni Martino's 23rd birthday. For the first time in two years I was actually in the country to celebrate with her. HELL YES. I'm pretty sure the girl has had her birthday planned for a few months because when I asked her what her birthday plan was, she immediately knew … Continue reading HBD TAWN

The loss of an 18 year old young man is beyond sad. It actually breaks my heart.  He was only 3 years younger than me at the time!  I've been unable to put my thoughts, feelings, opinions into words but Benjamin Watson from the New Orleans Saints has more or less taken the words right out … Continue reading Ferguson

My First Half Marathon

Pier to Peak….Pier to Peak. Where do I begin. To be honest I don’t know where I came up with the idea to to run a half marathon.  Maybe being done with soccer it was a way where I could track my progress and stay on top myself? Who knows.  I was feeling pretty confident … Continue reading My First Half Marathon

Newark? Do you mean New York…..?

SooOoooOoooo I finally took that trip back east I’ve been talking about since forever ago.  I guess I technically didn’t mention it on here, but in real life I have.  I’ll start mentioning things like that on here, I swear. My dad and I took the red eye to Newark, NJ and had absolutely zero … Continue reading Newark? Do you mean New York…..?
