RWS Features #42

 

Hey friends! Guess what? I am in Panama City Beach, FL for Ironman Florida! My sister is racing this morning, and so we are here to cheer her on. It’s been a wild ride so far, first we couldn’t find the condo, then we found it and were very unhappy with the condition of the room we were first put in and they moved us into a much nicer/better one….and then the air conditioner didn’t work! So we went to dinner while the repair guy came, and when we got back we found out the news that….it really is broken and we had to move rooms…again!!! So we JUST got settled into room number three, at 9:00 last night, and then are up early this morning for the start of the race!

1.) How/Why did you start blogging?

I starting reading other blogs and realized how much I loved hearing about how others train, struggle, succeed, etc.  I wanted to share my thoughts and adventures!  I also wanted to be able to meet and network with others through online groups (Fitfluential, Sweatpink)

2.) Sum up your blog in a couple sentences:

Mile Twenty Eight is where I share stories about my training, racing, and any adventures in between.  I also really enjoy trying new products and sharing my thoughts/opinions on them with others.

3.)What do you wish to accomplish/achieve by blogging?

I want to reach all types of people all over the world.  I hope to inspire them to keep training and stay fit.  I want to be that “down to earth” person that that has real struggles and success stories to share with everyone.  I hope to offer good advice, product reviews, and entertainment.  I also hope to meet many more people and learn new ways improve areas in my life as well.

4.)What is your biggest healthy living accomplishment?

I would have to say that training and completing my first marathon felt like one of my biggest healthy living accomplishments.  I spent a lot of time pushing myself further than I had ever run before.  I also focused on maintaining a healthy diet to supplement the hard training.  Everything was worth it in the end.  I was a marathoner!

5.) What is your blog URL and twitter handle

QOTD: Have you ever had to change rooms in a hotel or condo?

Comments

  1. Thanks for this post Heather! Looks great. And yes, I have had to switch hotel rooms before-once it was during my honeymoon!!

  2. The worst time I’ve ever had to change rooms was on a cruise ship. Something had happened with our booking, and we (4 of us) were put into a TINY interior cabin with bunk beds. We barely fit! We were able to switch in the room we were supposed to be in, and it was much better.

  3. Ugh as a front desk manager, I hate when this happens. It’s bad enough to have to move once, but twice. Yuck. I hope they were able to compensate you in some way.

  4. Wow- props to your sister! I didn’t know she was into racing- way to go support her! I just found Jenelle’s blog recently- it’s great!

  5. I got to watch some of the Ironman finishes online! How amazing!!
    Yes- I have had to change rooms plenty of times, mostly due to the hotel’s mistakes.
