Hello, from a Northland girl born in Cloquet, raised in Wrenshall, and currently living in Duluth! I consider myself lucky to have been able to share my mornings and life with you since 1996. It's like audio Facebook. You're the reason getting up at 3am is totally worth it! I love hot buttered movie theater popcorn, the smell of a lake (especially if I’m fishing), and warm fuzzy blankets. I’m a lover, not a fighter, and yes it’s true, I get my hair cut on a weekly basis. Kudos to my family, Homie, Kylee, and my Schnauzer, Bauer for always being by my side. I appreciate that you wake up with the B105 Breakfast Club, read and share my blogs and most of all, your friendship through the years! Peace, love and hugs!

My Secret Running Energy While Training For Grandma’s Half Marathon

My husband and I have been training to run Grandma's Half Marathon.  The weather hasn't cooperated and I'm not a treadmill kinda girl.  I haven't really been "in to it".  You have to be in the healthy mindset, so I"m grateful for the Northland Community Wellness Day and Essentia Health.  I'm sure it's all in my mind, but these Energy Bites have been a healthy God send.  They're easy to make, keep well and super yummy!

Conversation With Santa’s Reindeer At Fitger’s Answers Age Old Questions [VIDEO]
