Recent Meals + Cold Stone + DIY Iced Passion Tea

I am so happy to have a functioning keyboard on a laptop right now! You don’t realize how important each and every letter on a keyboard is until one of them stops working. I’m successfully set up on my new Mac (which was not easy but I won’t get into it) and ready to talk […]

  Let’s take a look at what I ate on Saturday since it was the day of my long run (15 miles). If you missed my weekly workout recap post on Sunday, click here to catch up on my workouts and latest race registration! Breakfast: The usual pre-run small bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon, some […]

What We Ate – Birthday Edition

It isn’t often that you find people who actually care to hear you ramble on about a fudge cake or a delicious restaurant. In fact, my friends and family often look at me funny when I take cake selecting and restaurant menus so seriously. I’m so glad you share in my excitement just so I can […]

Run Like Someone Is Chasing You

  I have finally matured enough to be able to see the bright side to an almost-sad ice cream situation. Normally when Cold Stone Creamery is out of my favorite chocolate-dipped waffle bowls, I complain, huff and then puff, complain again and then storm out. Saturday night however, I realized that no waffle bowl meant no chance […]

Long Beach City Manager’s 10 Mile Race Recap 2014

    Happy Memorial Day!   My breakfast looks all festive, doesn’t it? Trust me, I didn’t do it on purpose. I hope the weather by you is as beautiful as the weather is here in New York at the moment. Now how could a race be anything but great when you are running in […]

Back-to-Back Long Runs

  When I heard on Friday that my son’s little league game was switched to 9:00 am Saturday morning (meaning you are on the field at 8:30 am) instead of 3:30 pm in the afternoon, I was less than pleased. I don’t think the coaches really cared or understood that Saturday morning is my long run morning. Naturally […]

Put Away Your Measuring Cup

  I try not to dwell on things but part of me will forever live in fear of hitting publish and losing most of my post again. I am damaged for blogging life I tell you. The worst part about technological mishaps is that there is rarely an explanation. Oh, you lost your post? It happens. […]

WIAW- Why Are Blueberries So Expensive?

  Oh hello. It’s raining. And pouring. Thankfully, no one around my house is snoring. I have no patience for such a sound. Let’s take a look at what I have been eating this week. I changed up the usual format to keep things interesting… Breakfast Lately:   Important things to note: *I am still on […]

WIAW – Then…And Now

  I have an interesting twist for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday fun. The other day, my friend went through his email archives and came across a survey I once completed long ago. When I say long ago, I mean September 22, 2000. I was fresh out of college, working my first job in the promotions […]

Who Bought The Annie’s Macaroni And Cheese?

  Ever look back at something you said and realize a good laugh is in order? On Friday we left off with me saying I was looking forward to enjoying Saturday’s long run. Insert laugh here. The purpose of a long run is not your pace, rather, your focus should be endurance, logging miles and teaching your […]

14 Miles and Barbie’s Birthday

  If I had a theme song at the moment, it would probably be Yellow by Coldplay. I don’t even love the color yellow, it is just a coincidence that my sneakers have all ended up this shade from the rainbow. You will notice that I am still wearing both pairs of Adidas. My older […]

NNM And Little Changes Lead To Big Results

  Pandora was really kind to me yesterday morning. I don’t know how Tiffany landed on a Pitbull station but I will certainly take it. Maybe Debbie Gibson will be next? 30 minutes on the elliptical plus a few minutes dilly dallying with weights for the biceps and I was done. Short workouts like this often leave […]
