My Fro update - March 2012

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

Crotchet braids using Freetress Cozy Deep wave



Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Benjamin Franklin

So I decided to give my hair a break again and went with the good ole crotchet braids - this time I used a different type of hair - i normally use Freetress water wave but figured i try something else......err EPIC fail


1) It tangled like crazy
2) Twas extremely silky, thus slippery - I had to knot a few times to secure onto the cornrows
3) hard to blend my natural hair  -  Hicks Edges did help a wee bit

Running - I completed the Georgia Half Marathon


Hey peeps,

I know I've been m.i.a for awhile, I've been super super busy - with work, being a wife and mother, running and also working Jo Uthman Inc - oh and lest not forget I'm back on FB - oh dear!

Anyhoo, I ran the Georgia Half Marathon last week Sunday the 18th. The course was a BEAST! there were hills almost every mile it was never ending -the last 3miles were a killer - but I finish and did so in 2:07. I was aiming for 2hrs but my bad knees together with the heat, hills and humidity did not allow me do so.

I don't think I'll be running that course in a hurry :(. The fun part of the race was the end :) .

B and I after the killer race
