Hey Everyone

To all the new followers and for those creeping on my blog, Hello!!!

WOW! There are TONS of you out there.

Thank you for visiting, thank you for following, I'm super excited about this as I've been needing to get some more followers, find more blogs to follow myself, and get some more comments here and there as I'm going to need them with this upcoming 1/2 Marathon that is getting closer and closer each day.

Quick overview -sorry if its redundant

I'm Hollie - I live in Orlando, FL - I started doing triathlons in 2008 but I have 'issues' running so Tales from the Sole was born as a way to trick myself into running more to get better - I am married to my high school sweetheart - we have a dog named Kady - I've never ran more than a 5K so I hope this year to run a 10K, 15K and then the Disney 1/2 Marathon in January. OMG!

I am trying to make my blog more 'fun' so bear with me. I will be having a giveaway soon to celebrate all my new followers so stay tuned  :)


  1. Hey there! I would recommend trying the OUC 1/2 marathon some time too! It's usually the first Saturday in December and the price is right, I think around $45 or $55 for the race! It goes through downtown Orlando and is pretty fun to run.
    I look forward to hearing about your journey through this. In my experience, the first 3 miles are the hardest to build up to. Then, the next 3 to build up to 6 are a little easier. It's not easy by any means, but as you build, it does get easier than those first 3 miles were to build up! Good luck!!

  2. Hey there - yah I have OUC on my radar this year - was debating a little how crazy I'd be doing a 1/2 in December then the 1/2 in January.... I know it can be done it's just Can I Do It ??

    Thanks for the encouragement with building. Right now it seems impossible but I know I can get there :)

  3. I totally came over from SR because you have a Doberman. Oh, and running stuff too. :)

  4. Awww!! <3 dobies! Love it when someone else has one (I hardle see any around town) - I'll have to make a post about Kady - aka monster - baby Kate - princess Kate - lazy butt! Hahha. Thanks for the idea
