About Me

  • I am a former Marine and Southern Belle, and I love living in Hawaii! I recently had my left hip reconstructed to correct multiple fractures, so I keep busy with intense physical therapy. I am always looking for exciting new activities, exercises, and friends to keep me motivated while I heal!

  • Being able to run (pain free) again, I'll never take it for granted again!

  • Anything! Still recovering, and I have to keep reminding myself not to over-do it! Less impact the better, would love suggestions for NEW workouts!
    I've lived by the ocean for a majority of my life, and for the first time, I am considering surfing!

  • Not over-doing it, and re-injuring myself.

  • "Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out and proclaiming. "Wow, what a ride!"

    Do all my Cruden cousins have a passion for running -- why didn't I get that in the gene pool?

    Thanks Annbarr for the comment. If you are interested about CrossFit let me know. My background in the military and not only did we train for war but we had folks use it to "rehab" themselves back to shape. I look forward to talking with you in the future.

    Hi Ann, I usually look for royalty photos on the internet and keep them on my desktop (of computer) or I'll print them out and post em' on a wall board. I am currently experimenting with putting some of them into the form of a movie (slideshow style) so I can watch it for inspiration to keep me remembering my "why."

    Hi Annbarr-Thanks for the information and adding me as a friend. I am new to the site and navigating through it right now but I'll keep in touch. I've made my progress public so you can see where i am. My goal is to complete my first triathlon this summer.

    If you're considering taking up surfing, try the long boards first, given that you're recovering from injuries, a long board might be easier to handle while you're in the water, lots of buoyancy, and you can catch even the smallest wave! Hope this helps....

    I love using The Firm Ann! You really should look into it! I would recommend it to everyone. It takes a few times to get used to how fast the instructors move through routines, but once you get it, it's fabulous. I use the 'older' version of the series that has the steps. When I last looked at the site, it looks like they have a new system that involves weights. I would highly recommend finding and using the step system. :)
