RWS Features #21


Happy weekend! I am in an especially good mood because I am on my way to Disney World this morning! It is just a quick trip, girls only, with my mom and two aunts. We are driving part of the way today and part tomorrow so we will have more time tomorrow in the parks. Can’t wait to be back in my happy place! It has been a kind of stressful week for me so I need this trip!

Oh, here are a couple pictures I got from the Gulf Coast half I ran. Maybe you can see how sweaty I am and how MISERABLE I was in that heat! The first one was about mile 6 maybe?


mile 9…


mile 12…trying to give a thumbs up. not too convincing eh?




This morning I want you to meet Charlotte from Wild Things Run Free.  She is super sassy and fun and has a very cute blog. She lives in Maryland, and likes to travel like me!


1.) Why did you start blogging?

I have blogged on & off all of my life. In high school I had a
live journal account — only at the time I didn’t realize what I was
doing. I just used it as a place to vent/talk about my day to day life
& talk with people all over the world. I had no idea there was an
official name to what I was doing…. I was just having fun &
releasing stress that was built up from my anxiety of talking to
people in my day to day life… After livejournal I had stopped
‘blogging’ all together for some time… Until I was diagnosed with
ovarian cancer in 2010. I needed a place to go & just discuss the
things that I love & things that scare me, without the judgment of my
friends/family (most of whom were clueless to my medical condition!)
It’s been a non-stop thing ever since!
2.) Sum up your blog for me:

Wild Things RUN Free is designed to show the world that no matter
what obstacles lay before you, if you have a dream you can achieve
ANYTHING. Say it — Do it — DESTROY IT!
3.) What do you wish to accomplish with your blog?

My wish is to motivate people who are afraid to tackle their
dreams that we, as humans, are capable of anything we set our minds
4.)What is your greatest healthy living accomplishment?

I’ve done a lot of things. I’m now a runner, I now eat healthy, I
am now in a healthy relationship, I’ve quit smoking.. But I think the
biggest accomplishment of all is that through all of my healthy
activity, I have learned to believe in myself.

Thanks Charlotte! Very inspiring! You can also find her on Twitter, be sure to give her a follow and go say hi on her blog!

  1. Yes, I can definitely see the transformation from “This isn’t too bad.” to “Get this race over with!” in your photos. Still proud of you!

    Love, love, love Charlotte!

  2. Very inspiring, Charlotte! You CAN do anything you set your mind to. It’s not always easy (I know!) but I won’t give up. Good stuff.

    Love the race pictures Heather! Have fun at Disney.

  3. Thanks for the Feature, Heather! & I am SO jealous you’re a disney travel agent. I’ve always wanted to do that! I am slightly obsessed with disney world
