Apples and Orange Shirts

IMG_1862-800x600.jpg

Since I am still on Panama time (2 hours earlier than Pacific) I ate breakfast early and got hungry for lunch around 10am. I tried to hold it off with an apple, but that attempt was futile as apples only make me hungrier. But, Honeycrisps are sooo good, I don’t want to mix them with anything! In an effort to stay awake I had a big glass plastic of iced coffee. Also didn’t do … [Read more...]

Happy Halloween! (nataliedee.com) Despite the fact that I stayed up until 11:15pm last night finishing The Hunger Games, I woke up at 5am today ready to go. It still looked pitch black outside, but I couldn’t fall back asleep. I stalled a little then, put on my running clothes and decided to face the dark. But, have I mentioned that I’m scared of the dark?! Yep. Totally … [Read more...]

Search Me Sunday–Wrong Turn

IMG_1820-800x600.jpg

It’s so sad how many people take a wrong turn at Google and end up at Run Eat Repeat. Consider this post a formal apology and an attempt to steer you in the right direction... But first, if you were searching for a fashion blog you came to the wrong place. It was cold this morning so I put a random white tank on top of my running shirt. All fancy like. At least my dogs … [Read more...]

Another Red Head Runs or Used To

I don’t think you can blame me for being a little biased toward red heads. My brother and I were the only red heads for miles and miles growing up. We looked like freaks. So, we I grew up and discovered I wasn’t an alien I was delighted! I was extra delighted to find fellow red heads that love running, like Morgan from Caution Red Head Running. Unfortunately, Morgan is out of … [Read more...]

By Land and By Sea in Panama

IMG_1114800x600.jpg

Ben and I woke up super early this morning to the catch the 5:30am bus back into Panama City. It was rough, but saved us $38.00 (read: worth it).      When we got to the transportation terminal we stopped to grab breakfast. I’m kinda sick of empanadas and was craving an egg sandwich. Luckily, there was a Subway there! They actually make the eggs for your … [Read more...]

Going to Gamboa Panama

IMG_1375800x533.jpg

Ben and I moved our vacation inland to the rain forest for a few days. But, this morning I made oatmeal with hot water from the coffee maker… I’ve been rolling with this little trick for years – anyone else do this?  And we took a walk outside. There is a really great walking/running/biking path in Panama City along the water way. I wasn’t comfortable going for a run … [Read more...]

Kinda. 1. Where is your favorite place to … [Read more...]

Local Food in Panama

After the Panama Canal we went to Ciudad Viejo. It’s one of the older areas of Panama and has a lot of history. We visited a few Catholic churches. I may have mentioned it, repeatedly every time I do confession Thursday but I was raised Catholic and really appreciate this. Said a little prayer here <3 I needed that.We walked around and explored building and more churches … [Read more...]

LAX to Panama City

IMG_1267800x533.jpg

Hola de Panama!    Our direct flight from LAX to Panama City was pleasant and uneventful. I grabbed an iced coffee and packed breakfast for the plane. But, I ended up eating it in the bookstore while perusing the periodicals… I didn’t realize (or plan it), but we had the Emergency Exit row to ourselves! I’ve never had this row and was pretty jazzed about it! … [Read more...]
