1965 Mustang – Classic or Clunker

The Road to a Healthier Life

I think it is safe to say that the older Ford Mustangs are iconic classics that are immediately recognized and appreciated. It’s a beautiful car with sexy lines that easily turns admiring heads.  Well-made and when taken care will last through generations of admirers. read more

NYC Marathon-The Outcome

I will take my lessons learned and apply them accordingly.

The Stars Were Not Aligned…

We arrived in NYC about 11am; first order of business was to get our race packets and sort out our transportation for the morning of the marathon. We hopped into a cab and within 45 minutes everything was in order! We had our bibs and were added to the list for Team for Kids to bus us over to Staten Island. It was so easy! And everyone we talked to was so helpful. Team for Kids is no doubt the way to go, they are awesome. read more

My First Marathon!

What I Thought I Knew.

It was about 2 years ago when Wifey asked a question that would change me, at least a part of me, forever.  She asked, “Hey Babes, you want to run the NYC Marathon?”  Now before I go into my answer let me just let the readers know that the timing of this seemingly innocent, but ridiculous question was critical…and for 4 reasons.  Here they be: read more

A New Together

Running Our First Marathon 

NYC Marathon-SasnettWe are on our way to NYC together. We are together all the time! We work together, we lunch together, we yoga together, we raise kids together, we go to the doctor together; and now we have another new “together” 11 years later. We are running our first marathon together-ish (I’ll get back to the ish later) – 26.2 miles! He asked me if I was bringing music? I said, “Of course I am, we are together all the time” 26.2 miles in the city he proposed to me in, the city we respect, adore and love to visit. I am so excited and elated that my partner in crime agreed to doing it with me. It was not his idea, that’s a fact! As if him being 12 years and 15 days my senior would have any impact on his decision. read more

Running My First Marathon

Giving it All That I’ve Got

Stacy Sasnett-Marathon Training NYC Marathon

Are you ready?” The question of the hour! Almost everyday someone asks me if I’m ready to run my first marathon. I am as ready as I’m ever going to be. Sub 4 hours here I come (I think).

Recently, I never know what I am getting into, I know every run is not created equal but I am in that place where I cannot predict my future with any certainty. I start every run with a positive attitude, mind over matter, right? Nope, it doesn’t always work out for me. My husband always asks me “How are you feeling about your run?” and my answers lately have been neutral, almost not answering at all. I am hesitant, even meek to admit that I will meet my goal. I just know that I am going to put one foot in front of the other and finish, which is not the same as meeting my goal. Will I be proud at the end of my run? I’m always wondering…. I should be proud no matter what, right? YES! I should be, this is me convincing myself… read more
