Holiday Gift Guide for Runners

Or, things I’m loving lately: Running Edition. I’m not sure if this is part wish list (okay, yes, it sort of is #NoShame) BUT some of it is stuff I use and love. Books: 1. What I Talk About When I Talk About Running – Haruki Murakami (haven’t read this one yet, but it sounds awesome) 2. Born […]

You can & you will!

It was a pretty quiet weekend over here – not much to report other than running, eating and resting. I spent Friday night in the gym running 5 (easy) miles and slightly stressing about how the heck I was going to make it through Saturday’s 14 miler indoors. Eep. I stopped by the store to […]

Suffering in paradise

Good Day to you! We experienced quite the snowfall in the Rockies on Tuesday evening – I’m confident there were a ton of “sick” phone calls placed to employers so people could take advantage of the pow day on the slopes.

I think you’ll enjoy her and her blog. It’s filled with funny gifs, sarcasm, useful and non-preachy training tips and more. […]

I didn’t throw up!

…. this was the first title that came to mind and it made me laugh, so I’m just gonna go with it. Hey hey. Hope the weekend treated you well. Daylight savings has got me all messed up and I’ve been waking up at 4:30-5am almost every morning. At this rate, I’m thinking I should […]

“Sometimes things just click”

I used to know someone who’d say, “sometimes things just click” when we talked about how life/the universe has a funny way of helping us on our journey. It seems to happen when we’re not even really trying. ‘Leap and the net will appear’ is such a great analogy for how the universe meets us […]
