So I officially ended my 7 day challenge (and not to mention my 2012 running year) with a bang today! 7 days and 32 miles later, I could not think of a better way to end my 2012 running year! I had a lot of fun with this "challenge" and feel absolutely great on … Continue reading Seven Day Streak? SUCCESS!
It feels good to see this much green filling up my Nike+ week: My sole mission for today was to get my treadmill speed workout done. That means I barely did anything else (you know, all those mental negotiations insuring my arrival at the gym took too much energy to do much else). My original … Continue reading Staying Strong on Day Six!
So my "7 day challenge" continues. I have to say, as much as you might think that day after day of running would lead to burn out, it seems to be easier to stay motivated without the lapses in between. Maybe this would not stay true overtime but this does reinforce past feelings that it … Continue reading Days 4 and 5 – So Far So Good!

If you have never been, make a reservation immediately. It's all you care to eat & family style service but most importantly, all of the food is delish! … Continue reading A Short-winded Summary of Tonight
While we usually go out to dinner with my mom and grandparents as our Sunday evening tradition, we decided to shake things up tonight and have "date night" at home. Charles had to run to Tampa this afternoon so, while I was waiting for him, I bought food and started cooking. Thanks to the Pinterest … Continue reading Sunday Date Night
So this, for whatever reason, has been a week full of stress...and I'm just exhausted! Being Emotionally Tired As I mentioned, last week was busy, busy, busy at work! Although I had some time to recover over the weekend, it didn't quite do the trick. Over the last few weeks between my business trip, work … Continue reading Travel Drama & A Running Rut
So I couldn't have been more excited to find this in my inbox early this evening: The San Francisco Nike Women's Marathon (and Half Marathon) peaked my interest in the past and when I saw they planned to host an inaugural race in DC this year, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. … Continue reading Nike Women’s Half Marathon DC – Here I Come!
I feel like I am finally playing catch up on almost everything. Sleep. Check. Running. Check. Time with Charles. Check. Plus, a bunch of other things. Let me just start by saying that I feel like a human being again. Restoring myself to feeling normal was step one. Aside from getting a normal night's sleep … Continue reading Playing Catch Up
