Over a week ago, I had the opportunity to be a guest on my friend Glenneth’s blog. I have been following Glenneth for quite some time. I love her approach to health and fitness that includes NO SCALE! In fact in one post, she wrote how she even refused to weigh in at the doctor’s office. Really?!?! Can you actually do that???? Yes you can. I know it not only because Glenneth shared how she did it, but because I followed her lead and began refusing the doctor’s scale as well!
So when Glenneth gave me the opportunity to write a post, I was thrilled to be on her blog and share my journey of ditching the scale.
I had a love/hate relationship with the scale my entire life. I started stepping on the scale at an early age. Before ditching the scale, Friday was weigh in day for me. I began getting anxious about it Thursday night…..if not before!

A year and a half later, I’m still running my race.
My word for 2016 was run. Hebrews 12:1 says “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you probably know that I’m a runner. Cardio is my thing. I lift and do yoga, because I know those things are beneficial for me, but given my preferences, I’d just do cardio. I’ve been a runner for a long time. I’ve completed over a dozen full marathons and 60 half marathons and too many 5Ks and 10Ks to count.
But races aren’t what this blog is about. It’s about running my race in life. This blog is a reminder to keep my eyes on my own paper. It’s about staying in my lane.

We spent our spring break in Washington, D.C. It was mine and Ethan’s first time there. Kent had made a brief trip there a few years ago to see our Congressman Luke Messer be sworn into office for his first term.
I’m not a travel blogger, so this post isn’t going to give you the dos and don’ts or what to see and where to go in Washington, D.C. I just want to share what we did and a few things I learned about faith and fitness during our visit.
