Time To Make The Donuts And Muffin Tops

So yesterday morning I stopped midrun to stretch my legs. I don’t often stop to stretch but I find it helpful sometimes to stretch my hamstrings and quads a bit after the first mile and then continue on my way. Next time I need to stop midrun, I am going to try to not look down. Uh huh. I […]

Coffee And Goodies But No Fast Food

Time to make the donuts….Donut coffee that is. Jelly Donut coffee. When I was at Target yesterday, not only did I spot these new Dunkin flavors, if you buy two bags you get the mug for free. I could not wait to jump out of bed this morning and brew a big mug of jelly […]
