A Few Recent Meals + What To Do With Overripe Bananas

It’s Wednesday! In case you didn’t realize. I know the days are getting a bit repetitive but hopefully, things will get back to normal (or a new normal, just a normal that allows me to get my hair and nails done, ok?) real soon. Anyway. I’ve only had one pizza bagel in the last little […]

Do I Really Need It?

Cold Smores

  This post idea came to me during Saturday’s long run as I was thinking about my favorite post run breakfast. I asked myself, “Do I really need oats in a jar after every long run?” Yes, yes I do. While I adore oatmeal for breakfast any morning of the week, there’s just something about this combination […]

Thinking Out Loud- Maureen’s Kitchen

How do you feel about the word coincidence? Some say there’s no such thing, that everything happens for a reason, reasons which may be higher than our ability to explain or rationalize. Sometimes I agree with this controversial theory and sometimes, things just seem coincidental. I find it oddly coincidental that my post about running and […]

Thinking Out Loud – Random Things

    1. As freezing as it was last night on the Little League field, and trust me, it was beyond freezing, yesterday morning I woke up to gorgeous sunshine and warmish temperatures….but didn’t run. Any other day and I would have skipped the plan for crosstraining in the gym in favor of running outdoors […]

Three Tip Tuesday- I am back!

I am such a creature of habit that not being able to say hello to you all yesterday totally threw off my morning. Admit it, your morning was thrown off too and you may even think you missed me a bit. The site is still undergoing changes so please bear with me if you have […]

Run, Read and Eat Happy

Oh rainbow shoes how I loved you. Lesson learned. Do not judge a book by it’s cover. Although on a side note, I always seem to gravitate towards the novels with the pretty covers that have a picture of a cupcake, brownie or ice cream cone and they usually come through for me as great […]
