Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day Everyone! I hope you had a lovely day with your loved ones yesterday. A mid-week Valentine's day is always bummer since it's tough to plan a festive evening but my valentines did a good job this year. Since we both worked a full day, we agreed that spending a nice evening … Continue reading Happy (Belated) Valentine’s Day Everyone!
At long last - three weeks later - I am sitting down to write my full recap of the incredible 2013 Tinker Bell Half Marathon. Since my runs this week have been less than stellar and I would rather reflect on running glory instead of the sorry state of my body as it recovers from this … Continue reading PART 1 – 2013 Tinker Bell Half Marathon – Disneyland Vacation Recap
Although I constantly test my luck and think I can outsmart my body, you can only wear yourself down so much before you end up getting sick. The Decline I developed a little upper respiratory weirdness when I was traveling to the Tinker Bell Half. My symptoms were mostly a runny nose and it luckily resolved … Continue reading You Can Only Wear Yourself Down So Much…
So the only sort-of resolution I have for myself is to keep my house cleaner and do all the decorating I have been wanting to do. I don't really focus that much on New Years as a time to reevaluate my life. I am fitter than I have ever been, I am happily married, I don't think … Continue reading A New Year’s Resolution…for my cat
For some unknown reason, I have been so super exhausted this week. I don't mean "oh, I could use a good nap."

I'm sure it's … Continue reading Friday = RESTday

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
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
