Currently (July 2017)

currently

  Have I ever shared a Currently type of post? I don’t even know, all I know is that I currently feel over the place so maybe talking about some of the things I am currently doing will help my brain to get organized for the week. Currently Watching: All of MY SHOWS are on […]

I Am Officially Old & New Running Playlist

awesome 80's running playlist

  If I had my way, New York State would revise the law that currently allows for children to sit in the front seat of cars at the age of twelve to something more like: When riding with their parents, kids must sit in the back seat forever. No matter your age, even if you are 37 […]

Workout Recap & Songs From The Week

  How do you handle the music you listen to during your runs? If you listen to music at all. I have a playlist but I reserve it for special occasions like races and really tough runs (mentally and/or physically) in order to give myself a boost of inspiration when I need it. I also like […]

Thinking Out Loud

  I think I have finally grown up. Or at least matured in my thought processes. Normally, if someone tells me a story or current life issue, I quickly liken their experience to an episode of Beverly Hills 90210. However, in the last week, I find myself comparing my friend’s experiences to Sex and the City instead. Major […]

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 […]

Thinking Out Loud- Pretzel Spoonz And An Ah-Ha Moment

  In honor of Amanda, our Thinking Out Loud host, check out the newest pretzels from Snyders: Pretzel Spoonz! Click on the image or here for the link to the Hungry Girl article all about these new perfect-for-dipping Pretzel Spoonz. I love a fun utensil but I never really cared for the pretzel. Are you a pretzel […]

Mid-Week Report

Where did my spring go? The last few days have been cold and windy. I had been planning to retire my  Uggs to the closet this week as well as run a few hilly miles outdoors this morning. This is why I try not to plan ahead: 30 degrees plus wind chill was not part […]

Footloose

This cold weather is getting real old. So is the puffiness under my eyes. I am a long time allergy sufferer but lately I have been trying to pinpoint exactly what is causing my most recent flare up. Yep, I play allergist in my spare time. Anyway, I really didn’t think I would still be […]

Blizzard Schmizzard

I am ready for summer. Or even spring. Or simply a friendly winter which means no snow and  temperatures above 32 degrees. No such luck. Blizzard warning in effect through Saturday. Saturday morning is designated as my long run morning. A blizzard may throw a wrench in my routine for this weekend. Hmm. Good thing […]

Running to the Beat of my Feet

Today started out nicely. I was up early, got a list of things accomplished well before the little boy was up and well before the phone starts ringing to interrupt me. I was packed for the gym and ready to go for the day before even putting him on the bus. I even prepared my […]
