This normally busy week culminated in probably one of the busiest weekends I've had in a long time. While I feel like I could collapse and that I need a fully body massage, it was all so much fun and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Exciting New Gear I got some exciting new gear … Continue reading Another Stellar Week of Training – This Week in Review
1 Month Till Race Day + This Week in Review
Greetings everyone! It has been another busy week (evidenced by light posting) but was a great training week for me. It also just so happens to represent 1 month till race day and, as we have arrived at the end of March, it's a perfect time to admire how great this training plan has been … Continue reading 1 Month Till Race Day + This Week in Review
Fun and Excitement This Week PEOPLE!
So we have just a few very exciting things happening this week. Isn't it such a nice feeling when a Monday marks the week starting off right rather than trudging painfully into the new week? Answer: YES! Tonight's Track Workout So, I am intimidated by my speed work at the track every week. I'm pretty much … Continue reading Fun and Excitement This Week PEOPLE!
Why Weather? – Week in Review
So, if you live in Central Florida (and potentially beyond), you probably (hopefully?) spent the afternoon hunkering down inside because it was quite a storm! I saw quite a few uprooted trees via people's Facebook posts. SCARY! This is but a continuation of a theme for this week - weather just screwing up the best laid plans. … Continue reading Why Weather? – Week in Review
Progress Towards Short Shorts Bliss
So, as I have shared in a past post, I am on a quest to open up a whole new world of running fashion with the addition of shorts and skirts to my running repertoire.

The New Addition to Our Family…and it’s not what you’re thinking
So I am excited to welcome a new addition to our home: Yes, we finally bit the bullet and bought a treadmill. The Unexpected Circumstances Leading to Purchase So who would have guess that my husband who is "not a runner" (according to his constant mantra) was shockingly the impetus for the purchase. I figured … Continue reading The New Addition to Our Family…and it’s not what you’re thinking
Happy (Belated) Valentine’s Day Everyone!
Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day Everyone! I hope you had a lovely day with your loved ones yesterday.

Since we both worked a full day, we agreed that spending a nice evening … Continue reading Happy (Belated) Valentine’s Day Everyone!
Staying Strong on Day Six!
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!
Let’s Hit the Track!
So tonight was an exciting milestone in my running career - my first track workout. I added speed work to my routine for the first time probably 6-8 months ago. I was finally convinced that this was the best way to get faster but wasn't quite sure how to go about it at first. Because my … Continue reading Let’s Hit the Track!
I’ve been a busy bee!
The unfortunate side effect of lots of fun and excitement in my life is very little time to blog about all of it! Bad blogger, bad! Although I am about to run off to my next activity, here's a little sneak preview (in pictures) of what's to come: We had a lovely dinner at Artist … Continue reading I’ve been a busy bee!
