Best Damn Race, blog, book, family, friends, running


It has been way too long sine I’ve written a post about me and what’s been happening in my crazy life. Since we are in the midst of Tropical Storm Colin, I thought now is as good a time as any.

First of all, life is crazy. There is a lot of change happening in my world, and while I might not go into all of that now, just know that I have A LOT on my plate right now.


Life in general… Hubby and I have been so busy but we are blessed to spend much quality time together. I am thankful for him every day, and for the love and support he gives me. We both work a lot, but make sure to make time for each other in the evenings and on the weekends. He is my world…





Family… My niece just had her 5th dance recital and I know I am totally biased, but my goodness is she great on stage. She has no fear and has so much fun up there. This year in dance, she did hip hop, and she did awesome! I am such a proud aunt…

Running… Sadly, there just has not been a lot of running lately. But! I did run Best Damn Race Leftover 5K in Safety Harbor this past Saturday and as always, it was a blast. It was also as hot as the face of the sun, but getting out there with hubby and my bestie Angie, and seeing so many other friends made it totally worth it. (Shameless plug… Don’t forget to use NANCIC when you register for an upcoming Best Damn Race event to save $5)






Reading… My friend Angie started an online book club on Facebook and last month we read Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. We both very much enjoyed the book and went to see the movie yesterday. Despite my initial hesitation to see the movie, I actually ended up loving it more than that book, which is very rare for me. If you want to join in, let me know and I’ll add you to our group on Facebook. 





Being a Best Damn Race Ambassador… I am sure I will never tire of this. My Best Damn Race family is so much fun and we had a blast at Universal Studios to celebrate the end of the last race season. We really have so much fun together and I am super excited to be an Ambassador again for the 2016 – 2017 season.

Music… A couple weeks ago, I went to see The Monkees with my friend Denise. We had so much fun and enjoyed the music and night out together. Once again, I am a lucky girl to have made such good friends all because I started this little blog. 






Fun with friends… A few weeks ago, we went to Universal Orlando with our friends Tim and Ashley and their cutie-pie Abigail. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that I have such a soft spot for this little girl. It was so much fun spending the day with them, having fun, and watching little Abigail ride her first rides and have so much fun playing in the water. 





Blogging… I know it’s a HUGE long shot, but could you maybe possibly nominate me for Best Local Blogger on Creative Loafing Best of The Bay 2016? I put my heart and soul into my little place on the interwebs and would love This Crazy Life of Mine to get some recognition. I would be forever grateful…. Thank you SO much!
