MISSION // BUSTING IT
An athlete, an artist and a dreamer. I have a lust for FUN, beauty, the great outdoors and truly seek enjoyment out of life. Welcome to my mind, my world and my mission. The purpose behind BUSTING MY ASS WITH SASS is to chronicle my journey of becoming an ultra-version of myself in all aspects centered on the goal of becoming an ultra marathon and endurance athlete. Let’s face it – NOTHING IN LIFE COMES EASY! – but I am enjoying the building blocks and racing to get there: ING NYC Marathon, Mt Washington Road Race, Brooklyn Half just to name a few favorite recent accomplishments 🙂 Anything worth living for requires hard work and constant maintenance – let your passion drive this.. Embrace the hurt and enjoy the adventure. “Only those who risk going out too far can possibly find out how far they can go.” – T.S Eliot.

“SASSY…someone who is full of themselves but in a good way. They’re cheeky, lively, smart, saucy, slightly impudent, mouthy, cocky, energetic, loud and extremely talkative…fun, daring, sexy, multifaceted, someone you have to have! An adjective, typically used to describe a playful, flirty, saucy woman, particularly in reference to her verbal remarks. The best way to tell is if her eyes are bright with mischief.” Nailed it Urban Dictionary!
TRAIL NAME // MOCKINGBIRD
Mockingbird Symbolic Meaning (at-a-glance)
“When the Mockingbird comes into our lives it can be a message that WE NEED TO RETHINK HOW WE WORK, INTERACT AND COMMUNICATE WITH OTHERS. Are we accommodating? Are we being flexible? The Mockingbird way is to listen first, then respond. This is one of its greatest lessons for humans.
As you observed, the Mockingbird is very playful – another profound lesson for us. Few birds have the kind of bright vitality and obvious revelry. So when this happy bird flies into our lives it is a cue for us to frolic, and SUSPEND OUR SEVERITY FOR A TIME. Enjoy, relax, and take time to appreciate the pleasureful things in our lives.” Avia Venefica
