Super Fun Announcement + FFF Features

Posted: June 4, 2011 at 9:02 am

Before the announcement – some blogkeeping…

  • If you commented on my Strengths Out Loud post, please email me if you’re interested in being part of a spin-off post. And please include a photo! 🙂
  • Don’t forget to check out this post for a “secret” giveaway!

Are you going to try to make it to the Healthy Living Summit this year? I sure hope so!

Healthy Living Summit

Because this chick is leading a panel discussion on motivation and goals!!

Join Tina from Faith Fitness Fun for an in-depth discussion on what drives the motivation behind our health, fitness, and blogging goals – with and without the use of numbers. In this session you will gain a variety of motivational tactics, learn possible fallbacks to common approaches for tracking a goal’s progress, and discuss ways to stay purposeful and realistic with your aspirations. Leave with a renewed determination, a healthier focus, and the belief in yourself to achieve.

My first “speaking gig” (if you want to call it that). Super pumped!!!!


Well I’m hopefully finishing up my first 10K race as this publishes, but couldn’t keep my announcement in any longer. Plus, I wanted to get the FFF Features to you all. Look for a race recap hopefully later today. And on to the features…
