  2016 was a huge milestone year in our lives because of my son’s Bar Mitzvah back in October BUT there were other memorable, fun moments too! I decided to pick the first few things that popped into my mind as my favorites from 2016. Half Marathon PR! I ran the Long Island Half Marathon for […]

Our Trip To Hershey Park

super dooper looper

  I am super glad that it’s already Tuesday. It’s a bit tough getting back to the usual routine after being away last week at Hershey Park followed by the long Holiday weekend. I want to quickly recap our trip today and then tomorrow we can chat about yesterday’s 4 mile race! Our trip last week to Hershey […]

workout recap plus race tomorrow!

  Hi! I feel like we haven’t spoken in forever. How’s the long weekend going? I love that tomorrow is July 4th. Monday holidays are the best holidays! I am planning to run the Bellmore Striders Independence Day Run tomorrow morning. It’s a four mile race that I have been meaning to run each year since running it […]

Hi From Hershey & Running Round Up

  Hi from Hershey Park! We have been having the best time this week and the chocolate isn’t half bad either… I have lost count of how many chocolate bars and Hershey Kisses I have eaten but hey, it’s Hershey Park. If you are here, you eat chocolate with every meal. 🙂 Anyway, I will […]

My First Half Marathon: Hershey Half (2012)

hershey half marathon

  It really bothers me that I didn’t start my blog until a few months AFTER running my first half marathon at Hershey Park in October of 2012. I miss having the recap to reflect on and remember fondly. The Hershey half marathon was a seriously magical race partly because it was my first half marathon and […]

lunch with Michele at Bloomingdales, beach day & really good salads

michele and me at Bloomingdales

  My weekend can be summed up in salads, summer weather and a really fun day with Michele at Bloomingdales. Let’s take a look! We are definitely regulars at Chopt. Do I love it? It’s not my most favorite place to have a salad but my son is obsessed. In the Chopt Mix: Romaine/Spinach Beets Roasted […]

running, black bean pasta stats, what does friend even mean?

  I woke up yesterday to a slow-moving blog which quickly led to the inability to log into my wordpress dashboard. I kept one window open trying to refresh my blog page while the Dream Host Live Chat wait window kept chiming to alert me 8 more minutes, 7 more minutes, hold on 4 more minutes and then […]

Thinking Out Loud in Survey Form

  Both Michele and Amanda tagged me to complete the latest survey going around so I figured today would be a good day to answer a bunch of random questions. Four Names People Call Me Other Than My Real Name: 1. Mommy 2. Meemo  – My mother always called me this growing up and my friend […]

Granny Smith Apples And Hershey Park Cookies

Fairway Market and I have officially made up. I will happily walk into Fairway today as if nothing negative between us ever happened. It was about time they put my beloved Granny Smith apples back on special. I have been getting by with purchasing my apples from Trader Joe’s and while those apples served me well, Fairway apples hold a special place […]

The Lifetime Experience

So guess what? I actually went to Lifetime yesterday like I said I would. I started on this elliptical-arc trainer type thing – the one that lets you go in multiple directions and positions. I love the variety that it offers, especially being able to do the motions in the squat position but I only lasted 10 […]

One Day You Will Appreciate Me

Sunday already? The weekend sure does fly by. It snowed last night so my friend and I went over to Lifetime Fitness  instead of hitting the trail for a run. I split my workout between a variety of those elliptical type machines. There are so many different versions of those machines and I almost always […]
