I had my first ever acai bowl (with peanut butter) and it was a winner.   Just sharing some watermelon at the park..  It may look […]

There are more ways to tell that you are becoming a stronger runner than just judging your improvements off of the amount of time that it takes you to run x amount of miles or the amount of miles that you can run each week.  Setting personal records is a great way to show that you are improving but there are other things to pay attention to also!

My Wednesday workout was pushing Brooke around in her stroller all day.   And we did get a little run in on our way to the pool… she is getting speedy. I feel like this is how you know you are with the right person and the two meals following this picture gave me that feeling they are talking about… Open-faced burritos and nachos. A cobb salad from Croutons.  I’m going to have to go back for lunch today. My […]

Even though I will be very slowly building up my mileage, just getting out for a mile or two is sure feeling awesome.   Ten things you could think about during your next run if you are bored and needing some ideas: 1.  Race day.  I love thinking about how the training that I am doing at that moment is going to make race day feel a lot better because I will be trained properly.  Putting in the work now […]

TIME FOR YOUR WEEKLY INSTALLMENT OF TANGENTS! 1.  A virtual bottle is pretty much just as cool as a real bottle.   2.  So this is really fun.  You can’t escape me.  You can read my first post HERE!!!!!!   3.  I am back to running.  I took a full month off after my marathon (and then 1/2 marathon the next weekend) to allow my body time to really recover and heal after the race.  I also wanted to take […]

To say that it felt like a 4,000 lb weight was lifted off of my chest once my divorce was finalized would be an understatement.   I won’t ever talk about the reason why I got divorced on the blog (because I don’t want Brooke to ever be able to read about it on the internet… I would rather talk to her about it when she is old enough) but what happened shook my world, I felt like I was […]
