No, Your Apple ID Has NOT Expired

We all know about the “OTHER” messages go to die on Facebook, but if you have an unknown senders filter ticked on you Apple iPhone, you may have missed this. There is a text phishing scam going around that informs you that your Apple ID is expired.

First of all, don’t click it. Apple is not texting you. Second, it’s a scam. We know all about scams here at City Girl Goes Digital.

The text looks a bit like this:

You clicked it didn’t you?

On the Road to the Niagara Falls Women’s Half Marathon

half marathon

I am by no means athletic.  

I haven’t been athletic since college and besides swimming or playing a little volleyball here and there everything has gone by the wayside.

Two years ago, I decide to make a huge change to the way in which I looked at fitness when I signed up for the Susan G. Komen Maryland Race for the Cure 5K. After that race, I got focused. I took aerobics classes, water aerobics, even focused on strength training. Putting the focus on what I was consuming really helped as well but that was two years ago.

Fast forward to January 2016,  I looked at my bucket list/goals and realized that I had the goal of finishing a half marathon on that list. In 2015, I did no races or events. I barely exercised. So imagine my surprise when I saw this goal. From there, a lightbulb went off. so you can imagine my surprise when I saw this goal. 14 weeks. For this feat, I chose the Niagara Falls Women’s Half Marathon. I chose this particular race because of the rave reviews, supportive community and the money back guarantee on their training plan.

Am I crazy? I don’t know.

I ask myself every day as I lace up my shoes and head to the gym if I’m really ready to participate in this half marathon

I’m not doing it for free or likes I’m doing it because my health and activity level is not where it should be for a 28-year-old.

This post is my accountability post. I am about 58 days away from race day and I am scared but determined. Over the next 8 weeks I’ll be posting here about my progress, success and my failures. Periodically, I’ll also be documenting it through video on my YouTube channel just to keep the lifestyle fresh.

Follow along with me in my journey of chasing this metal and my health!

cheers half marathon

Cheers!
