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
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
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!
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

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! 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!
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 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!
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!
