You ever just have one of those moments (or days, weeks, years) that you seriously worry about yourself? A moment that you even shock yourself over your own idiocy? Well, I had one of those the other day at the gym. (Sadly, these moments are fairly commonplace) Much like blogging, running and I have not… Continue reading Blonde roots run deep
Forgive me fitness, for I have sinned. I have blasphemously let my hard-earned running callouses heal. I know, I know! Absolute travesty of epic proportions! I have not been making enough time for running lately, and it is a crying shame, because I love it. I love being outside, seeing the world unfiltered, feeling the… Continue reading Forgive me Fitness, for I have sinned…again
Ok, so I am beginning to think the universe is conspiring against me. Everywhere I look either people are on vacation at the beach, there are Groupons to get to the beach, certain people (not to name names or anything. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!) live on or near the beach, or I am reading… Continue reading Summer girl
The problem with any extended weekend for me always starts and ends with food. What to bring? Should I even bother trying to make/bring healthy food to eat? Should I just say “Fuck it!”, thoroughly enjoy the idiocy and pay the piper on Monday? One day, I shall conquer! Image found on Positivemed.com Well, today is… Continue reading The Food Hangover
This morning when I wandered into the ladies room a bit earlier than normal, I was greeted by the fresh smell of cleaning products and a toilet with the lid up and brimming with clean, blue water. For whatever odd reason that gave me a little happiness zing. Which then got me thinking, am I odd? I… Continue reading Weird things that make you happy
The Esprit De She is the very first race that I have ever been a part of that provides all of the race photos as a part of the race package. Very, very cool! These are usually an insane amount of money that I never spend- so no one ever gets to see them. These… Continue reading Free photos in a race?!?! WHAT?!
Last December my running group was looking for something that would be different, challenging and still incorporate running when we decided to sign up for the Esprit De She duathlon in Tempe. We knew we could do it, I mean most of the course would be on bikes – and if we have ran several half marathons… Continue reading First duathlon done!
What is it about that day after the day after you work out? The pain levels are so much more intense! The battle of just basic muscle control is ridiculous! I have to say, for anyone watching me move today I must be fairly entertaining. Attempting such super human feats as walking, sitting down, standing up, climbing stairs,… Continue reading Two Day Pain Delay
I can’t believe Friday will be May 1st. This weekend is coming up super fast! Normally I can’t wait to get to the weekend, but this upcoming weekend has me a little apprehensive. A few months ago some friends and I decided it would be a great idea to push ourselves and test our limits by… Continue reading Time Flies
Freaking high pollen advisory today. DAMMIT. Doesn’t Mother Nature understand that when it is actually not sweltering outside that I want to be outside? Especially now that I have a whole hour for lunch. That actually gives me enough time to run during the day instead of feeling guilty about not running after I get… Continue reading High pollen count = no running today
