Be-You-Tifully Fit: Gone bananas


It's hard to believe this year is coming to an end.  This is the final Be-You-Tifully Fit blog of 2014.  And in proper season ender's fashion, here is my shocker...  2015 will be the year of the Marathon Maniac qualifying.  I may have gone bananas BUT I want it.  Bring on Shamrock Full Marathon and then a week later it will be on to Emerald Isle Full Marathon!  I am embracing the crazy!
