New Clothes, Salads & Baked By Melissa (week in review)

baked by melissa

  What a difference a week makes! Although there are still some minor Bar Mitzvah details lingering around (like waiting for the pictures from the photographer and coordinating the service video from one videographer to be edited into the party video from the other videographer) I definitely felt more like more like myself over the last several […]

running shoe rotation plus workout recap

workout recap

My running shoe rotation fell off course this week which sounds totally weird if you don’t run but since most of you reading are runners like me, you will probably appreciate the conversation we are about to have. I have a system to my running shoe rotation and I rarely deviate: Adidas Energy Boosts = Tuesdays, […]

TOL – Hershey Park, Running Shoes & Chocolate Banana Pudding

hershey half marathon

This week has been weird because my son has been sick for most of it. It started out as I don’t feel well which I took as I don’t feel like going to school which then turned into he wasn’t kidding and he’s real sick. The positive side to this is that he hasn’t been […]

Back From Florida!

  Good morning! I missed chatting with you yesterday but my flight home from Florida didn’t get in until after midnight Sunday night so I allowed myself to sleep a few extra minutes in the morning before getting my son ready and off to school. As much as I love coming home to my bed, my routine and […]

How About A Giveaway Today?

  It was beautiful out yesterday. Everything about my run was terrific and the weather was just an added bonus. I did my best to focus on running rather than allow my mind to wander and it worked out rather nicely for me. I was able to achieve negative splits as well as the quick paces I […]

New Snacks and Quinoa Flakes

Remember these sneakers? So cute, right? Yeah well, appearance is their only positive attribute at the moment for me. Since I became all adventurous with changing my running route, I decided yesterday to throw real caution into the wind by switching up the sneakers as well. Bad move. I barely made it a mile before […]

Sunday Recap – Crosstrain and Cheesecake

Rise and shine people, time to start the week! I am getting ready to go for my morning run shortly. I forced myself to cross train yesterday because I realized I have been running every day without many elliptical or spin days in between. But I know me. I know that there is always a chance that as […]

Cinderella

My run yesterday was nowhere near as glorious as the last few have been. The conditions were perfect, even after the flooding rains from Tropical Storm Andrea. I blame my sneakers. I just don’t know about these Brooks Glycerins. Some days they are great. And then some days, they hurt the tops of my feet. […]

Swag Bag

Rise and Shine! It’s Saturday! I am still recovering from carrying the tremendous amount of swag through the city. I spent hours yesterday literally organizing all of my new goodies and then cleaning my house. Confession: I am a neat freak. I can’t think straight when things are out-of-order. This personality trait doesn’t work well with an active 9-year-old […]
