In addition to the normal insanity that makes up our everyday life, we've added something new to the mix this week: home renovations! The Background We bought our beautiful home just over a year ago and knew there was one big project we definitely would need to take on at some point. The house was practically … Continue reading Boy Have We Been Busy!
Last week was yet another busy week that rolled into an equally busy but fun-filled weekend! What's life without a little adventure? Well this week's adventure comes compliments of a LivingSocial deal with Central Florida Paddle Boarding. A couple months ago, we picked up a deal for 90 minutes of Paddle Boarding for 4 and … Continue reading Adventures at Sea: Paddle Boarding Fun!
So, if you live in Florida, you know how absolutely craptastic the weather has been this week! In the last 3 days, I have been forced to log 15 miles on the treadmill. Although I have started to get used to running on the treadmill (and actually quite enjoy having an opportunity to watch my … Continue reading Foot Steps & Paw Prints
Quick & Dirty Stats: Chip Time: 23:48 Place: 3rd Female, 12th Overall, 1st in Age Group Event Recap So I decided that this race would be my last hard effort of this racing season when I registered.

Well...I have been a very bad blogger! I know, there is no excuse for going to long without an update. I haven't forgotten about all of you (I swear!) but it's just been a whirl wind since we got back from DC. I've also been battling the sickness that started on the first day of … Continue reading Back to the Grind
Hi everyone! Apologies in advance for funky formatting and since I'm writing this on my phone. So I've been missing from the blog for days (as somewhat expected) so a lot has gone on in that time. The brief summary is that it was very rushed getting ready for this trip, Charles and I have … Continue reading A Quick Update: Nike Women’s Half DC

This week has been full of ups and downs but it wouldn't be training any other way, right? As I wrote about earlier this week, I dealt with the frustration of injury which also prevented me from sticking exactly to my plan (and forced my weekly mileage to come in low as well).

As with most training plans, things were going so well until my body was like "calm this nonsense down and stop stressing me or I'm going to ruin your day and rebel." I was so pumped to go to the track … Continue reading Gear Review: The RooSport
