    Hey Miz,
    Running friend here saying that I’m so proud of you for trying it! Running is NOT for everyone but its my sport and I’ll toot its horn every chance I get. I’m sure you’ll do great in your first half marathon (thats where I got hooked into loving running by the way, no pressure just a little fact for you to digest over a GU or a Luna Moon or something along your route). Can’t wait to hear the race report and see pics!

    Best of luck to you Miz! You’re going to do amazing!

  3. Evie says:

    Austin must think you’re nuts.

    I love it.

  4. Terrie says:


    You are my neighbor I think.
    I live near that Gold’s gym.


  5. Yum Yucky says:

    run, woman, run! but I think that first guy is really smiling because he thinks you’re cute.

    Only you could get people to wear a tiara thing on their head.

    Next time you need to carry a tutu around and see who you can get to put that on.


  8. JourneyBeyondSurvival says:

    Totally awesome.

  9. MrsFatass says:

    Man. I can’t believe it’s here! You are going to do great, and in MY humble opinion have been inspiring. You set a goal and you are doing it.

    I canNOT wait to meet you. Just 2 weeks!

    Now get packed. Say hi to Minnie for me.

  10. Jessica says:

    Awesome!!! You will rock it! :)

  11. Bonnie says:

    I know you’re kidding but this is actually a great tip, Miz.

  12. mousearoo says:

    I so wish I could be with you, but feel free to keep me there in your pocket. I will definitely be keeping you in my head as I’m running on Sunday morning.

    So when you see that other mouse, think of this mouse.
    I’ll be cheering you on from the North.

    So. Damn. Proud.

  13. Laurie says:

    You have entirely inspired me with the way you have taken on a goal and conquered it.


  14. Miz says:

    riiight. I was totally kidding, Bonnie.


  15. Diana('s Journey) says:

    That is so awesome! Looks like everyone got a smile out of it.
    Go MizFit GO!!! Have a great time :) You will totally kick butt! Just doing this is so amazingly cool.

  16. Helen says:

    Your experience as a new runner has helped me refind my love of the run.

    You rock, Miz.

    Have fun!!

  17. dragonmamma says:

    I’m leaving town for a week, too, so I won’t know how you did for another week. Go git ‘em!

  18. Marisa (Loser for Life) says:

  19. Jen, a priorfatgirl says:

    I can’t believe it’s here already! I am so excited for you and can’t even imagine the feelings your going through right now.

    As you cross the finish line, please remember the feelings you have - and never forget them. You are an inspiration to so many and are proving not only to Tornado, but to yourself that if you dream it, you can do it!

  20. charlotte says:

    Aieee! I’m so excited for you! And I love that you recruited your own fan club - add me (in spirit) to the group! I’ll be cheering you on the whole time:) Can’t wait to hear how all the princess running goes!

  21. Joanna Sutter says:

    You are going to rock Disney! Enjoy every step of the way!


  22. Sagan says:

    Ahaha love it. Miz, you ARE a runner!

    And no matter what happens during the run… you’re still a superhero.

  23. Diane Fit to the Finish says:

    You will do great MizFit! Are you going to ask people on the plane to hold up the shirts for you?

  24. Shannon says:

    GOOD LUCK MIZ!!! i’ll be thinking of you :) and loved the tornado pics with the shirt :)

    now go get your tutu on!

  25. @FitInMyHeart says:

  26. MizFit says:

    It really is 100% true I would NOT have done this without all of you.

    COULD NOT have done this without your tips, suggestions, nudges in the proper direction, & plain ole encouragement.

    Until I cross the finish line (seriously DO NOT CARE by what mode. skipping lunging crawling—whatevs) I wont say I DID IT…but Im well on my way to loosening my tighta**grip on my self-definition.

    I may just be a RunningWannabeBodybuilder after all.

    xo xo

  27. Lori says:

    You will love the experience! Have fun and enjoy your time there!!

  28. cammy@tippytoediet says:

    Also, I just listen to your last podcast. Loved it. Liked the guest, she was very interesting. The BEACON/BACON thing made me laugh. I really felt like I was evesdropping on you guys. Nice job. Liked the question thingo with the guest.
