Getty Villa, Malibu CA: Water Pond with Lily Pads
A beautiful woman who is setting an example of Fitness for Life!
This photo was taken on a street in the city of Avalon located on Catalina Island. A quaint little restaurant that caught my eye. The vivid colors, floral arrangements and delicious menu displayed all over the front entrance lures in hungry tourists. If you take a look in the windows you can see the reflection of the boats on the waterfront.
I just edited my blog title and changed it to read, “Pink Running Kicks”. I also added the new tagline for my blog, “Quitters Never Win and Winners Never Quit”. Now this definitely sheds new light into who and what Pink Running Kicks is all about.
There are times when I give up on an idea or activity. Either out of boredom or not being able to spend enough time to develop or complete it. But, I’m not a quitter. I eventually pick it right back up and carry it out to fruition.
My tagline came from the words of Lisa Nichols, Life Coach, who authored the delightfully wonderful book, Chicken Soup for the African American Woman’s Soul.
I watched one of her workshops on YouTube where she spoke about how she was thrown into a situation where she initially felt defeated and intimidated. Ms. Nichols, however, developed a mindset that she could win and went on to have victory over her situation.
Quitters Never Win and Winners Never Quit is a mindset that will guide me on my journey through life.
Peace and Love
Pink Running Kicks
I remember the enthusiasm I had when I created my blog back in 2012. It didn’t take me long to write my “About” page. I wanted something short and sweet, maybe 3 sentences at the most. I tried to capture who I was in this brief statement in hopes that readers would find me interesting enough to follow. I think I wrote that I was a newbie runner who loved health and fitness. My “About” statement later went on to include that I was a beauty enthusiast as well.
Well my descriptor of who I am has not changed very much. I’m Pink Running Kicks. My name developed from my love of the most awesome color in the world, pink, of course. I love to run and I always have a touch of pink in my running shoes a.k.a. “kicks”.
I created my blog to document my journey in the world of health, fitness and beauty. I mostly write about my likes and dislikes, struggles and accomplishments and special events in my life. I guess my blog is my journal that I want to share with others who have my same interests.
My blog has also created a new goal for me career wise. I want to earn a Nutritional Specialist and Weight-Loss Management certification. I don’t know when this will occur, but I’m pretty sure it will happen in the near future.
I will continue to discuss my workout plans, races and upload pictures of my nutritional plans. Oh yes, I forgot to mention that I LOVE TO COOK. I just purchased a new camera so you’ll see loads of pictures.
I’ve gained a few new followers so I hope this gives you a little insight into who I am.
Peace and Love
