Oyster–> you need this in your life.

I found something that has brought a lot of happiness into my life the last few weeks.  It is called Oyster and it is the Netflix of books.  For just $9.95 a month you get an unlimited amount of ebooks.  UNLIMITED.  I spend at least $10 on just ONE book for my iPad each month.  This allows me to read as many books as possible for the same price!   Oyster has over 500,000 books to choose from and they […]

What I eat before a workout and some tangents.

One thing I get asked a lot is about what I eat before a workout.  Get ready for a very in-depth answer;) If I am running early (at like 5 and we are doing 10 or less miles)—>  Nothing.  It is usually too early for me to even process what I am about to do let alone think about eating.    If I am running early and we are doing a tough workout/speed work/10+ miles then I plan ahead and […]

The first time I couldn’t think of a title after writing 2,596 (seriously) posts on HRG.

I have some pictures from our Friday night James Bond party… aka the first time I wore a fancy dress and heels since Prom 2004.  PS I borrowed the dress from my friend Sara and she said she got it off of Piperlime (they don’t currently have the same dress but they have a ton of other/similar dresses right now).  Oh, and Sara also did my makeup because I have no idea how to put on eyeshadow.   We played […]

A running annoyance, Elsa, a concert and a fancy picnic.

And one of my biggest annoyances on the treadmill—>  When I accidentally bump the stop button and then I have to stop when I am in my groove, start all over again and then do a bunch of math (okay, just some simple addition) in order to figure out how far to go.    I thought I was going to feel tired and sluggish on my run yesterday because I stayed up way too late on Friday night but once […]

A James Bond Party and the best apple dip possible.

We finished our 10 miles before the sun came up and apparently I was wide awake by the end judging by how I was opening my eyes as big as possible for the picture.  We were both exhausted on this run so we kept it nice and slow (still not wearing my garmin so I have no idea what our speed was).  It was abnormally warm this morning which always happens right before it gets freezing cold here in Utah. […]

She gives some good kisses. Fall, stop being so perfect. Been craving this big time. Fall nails and dry skin:) Largest teddy bears for sale. Yes yes yes yes yes!!!!!! We went to visit Leo. For tonight’s ‘James Bond’ party: No filter- the real deal: Guess what we’re doing today. Happens all of the time. ——————————————– What are your 5 words for today?! What type brand of bread do you normally buy?  Anyone make their own bread? Who has a […]

Maybe I should do a triathlon and aqua jog during the swimming portion.

Too bad that triathlons involve swimming because I really like the other two parts of the whole ordeal.  Or maybe I could just pool run with my super attractive aqua jogging belt during the swimming portion of the tri.   I taught spin this morning but first I ran a few miles on the treadmill.  I had to change in between because I can only wear shorts when I run on a treadmill because I overheat but I need capris […]
