Hey everyone! It’s finally FRIDAY! Why is today so fabulous? 1. I’ve scared myself almost every day this week. Remember this post where I talked about doing things that scare you? Well I’m totally into it right now! Last weekend I was being lazy and spending a bunch of time online and I found out … More Fabulous Friday!
I have to apologize for not blogging for 6 days, but things have been a bit tough lately. Work has been really difficult in the past month, and covering the schedule last week was really mentally exhausting. On top of that, I was up for a really great promotion but found out on Friday that … More Running Fixes Everything
It’s Friday! Why is this Friday so fabulous? 1. The weather, again! This weekend is once again going to be beautiful with perfect, low temps. I may have to go for a tiny little hike on Saturday even though it’s my pre-race rest day! 2. Last night I ran my “workout bucket list” run! Do … More Fabulous Friday!
Hey everyone! Sorry for the late night post – after our run today Andrew and I stopped at Target for some groceries, and then when we got back to my car it wouldn’t start, so I spent most of my night dealing with tow trucks and AAA (if you’re not a AAA member, GET ON … More Why Everyone Loves Fall Running

So I could talk about my 2 mile run today, or my first piece of pumpkin cheesecake this season, or something else that happened to me today. But today is a really special day and I’ve got more important things to talk about. Like the fact that seven years ago today, I met this guy … More My Favorite Person On Earth
BIG NEWS: I bought my first pair of “real” running shoes today! Yes, I fell head over heels in love with those beautiful blue Mizuno Wave Inspire 9s that I tried on this weekend (see pic below). Now, there is no way I wanted to pay $115 dollars for running shoes, but these things were … More Shoe Success! (but GPS problems…)
I know, I’m a terrible runner – today was my first run since Milwaukee on Saturday! But I’ve got some pretty legit excuses.
