Happy Thursday! I have a little confession on this fine day – I got Yogurtland ‘just because’ yesterday.

It’s August! So here is a quick recap of my favorite Run, Eat and Repeat from … [Read more...]

I enjoy long walks on the beach… Guys with dimples… and champagne. Or dark chocolate when champagne is not available. Yesterday Ben and I took a walk on the beach and discussed how cliché, yet awesome those long sandy walks are... I love it. Then, we discussed our zodiac signs and stopped at an ice cream shop his family has been raving about. Yes, the carrot cake … [Read more...]

I was afraid I was going to be  super messed up since it makes me super tense in the neck area. … [Read more...]

Speaking of the gym… my gym needs a group fit instructor to … [Read more...]

Happy Monday! I started my day off with a speedish run – 1 m w/u, 4 800s and 1 m c/d. It was just okay. I need to do this weekly again to see improvement because I was def slower than in the past. When I got back I realized there was only a few sips of iced coffee left from yesterday so I had to make a fresh batch. Luckily Tina sent me a bag of Marylou’s AMAZING coffee for my … [Read more...]

Hello and Happy Tuesday   This morning I set out for a tempo run like I promised myself last week. My ankles are still feeling a little sore (?) but once I warmed up I was fine.
