Junk Drawers + NYC Marathon Application + On This Day

NYC marathon-lottery

  Every time I do the laundry and it’s time to move the wet clothes to the dryer, I pray that when I open the dryer, it’s empty. You know, not filled with a load of clean clothes that I totally ignored forgot needed to be folded. Twice this week I was surprised elated to see […]

Oprah + On A Serious Note + On This Day

chocolate caramel apples

    I caught an episode of Oprah’s Life Class the other night which made me realize once again that Oprah is the best. Every weekday afternoon at 4:00 PM I still think of her and miss watching her show as I did for so many years after school and even as an adult. On […]

Fartleks + Red Mango + On This Day

runners world half

  Thursday has become the day that I update you on Heather’s running progress. She completed another 5k race on Sunday and was able to run the whole race! I am so very proud, I told you she was ready to do it! She actually called me after the 2 mile mark during the race […]

Social Media Stalking & Other Random Stuff

beach day

  Does everyone out there realize that once you view an Instagram story, the person whose story you viewed can see you viewed it? It’s pretty entertaining for me lately to see who is viewing my stories. Like, hi! Thanks for checking up on me! Yes, I’m alive and well and at the beach today […]

Craving Pickles, Using Emoji’s, New Favorite Quote (TOL)


    Please excuse me for totally failing to mention Global Running Day in yesterday’s birthday recap post. I told you I was tired. When I am tired, I forget things very easily. So hi. Happy belated Global Running Day! I hope you had a great run to celebrate! I ran 6 miles. I’ve been craving […]

Not A Real Adult, I Hate Paperwork & On This Day


  Oh, hi June 1. So nice to see you. June 1 has always been a big deal to me because it means my birthday is only four days away. That’s right. My 39th birthday is on Monday! I am not so sure that one is still supposed to be all exclamation point about their […]

Need An Escape, SOS & On This Day

Fitness Magazine Meet and Tweet

  Sometimes I really need an escape to Florida to see Heather (and Danielle too) and this week was one of those weeks. I wish life was so simple, like it was when I was in college, back when I could crave a trip and book my flight for the next day! Things just don’t work that […]

Runners and Amenorrhea, Fake News & On This Day


  This week involves more New York State testing which means my son goes into school late since we opt out of taking the exams. Again, why couldn’t tests be optional when I was a kid? The later mornings mean extra sleep, more time to devote to running and Pure Barre AND out for breakfast. […]

Ben & Jerry’s, Secret Lovers & On This Day

Ben & Jerry's vegan pb & cookies ice cream

We recently went to Ben & Jerry’s for ice cream. They no longer sell my flavor which was the banana peanut butter greek yogurt so this time I tried the fairly new vegan PB & Cookies. Why did they have to discontinue my banana peanut butter greek yogurt?! I just had it at the Ben […]

Giant Slice Of Chocolate Cake & Other Random Stuff (TOL)

chocolate cake

1) I had the most giant slice of chocolate cake for dessert the other night. Seriously, I think it’s the biggest slice of chocolate cake ever in my 38 years on this planet. Have you ever seen a slice of chocolate cake this big? Do you know how I live for giant slices of cake? We […]
