Friday Five: Favorite Race Memories

August 8, 2014

This week’s Friday Five link up is about race memories. I keep thinking back to what made racing so excited as I struggle with my relationship with running these days. I’ve had some epic races – and while I’ll probably never be running a sub 8 minute mile or qualifying for the Boston marathon, some […]

A Weight Watchers Recipe Win

August 7, 2014

Last week, I had  a girls night in with Liz which involved some delicious enchilladas, some wine and a lot of girl talk. I had originally suggested a weight watchers recipe that I saw on the weight watchers website but she wasn’t feeling pasta so we substituted and the enchilladas were a huge hit! However, […]

Friday Five: Five things to be happy about

August 1, 2014

This morning I was going to jump in and share what’s new – since my blogging and general “social media-ing” has been a little lackluster lately, but instead I saw this awesome healthy living challenge on Greatist and I’m going to use it as a guide to blog once per day for the next month […]

Race Recap: Foam Fest 5k

July 23, 2014

Recently, I completed my first adventure/endurance race and holy….eff…was it hard. I mean, there are hard races (like the one I ran Sunday in Baltimore that was a bit hillier than I was prepared for) but then there are races that just challenge your endurance and make you leave everything out on the course. Those […]

Weigh In Wednesday: Dealing with Setbacks

July 9, 2014

No one is perfect. Last week, my tracking was uber craptacular. Like there was no point. I enjoyed a couple adult beverages at a work happy hour Thursday, a couple beverages with hubs on the fourth – you smell what I’m stepping in. It just snowballed to a whole lot of bad food and not […]

Nations Tri Training: Week 2

July 7, 2014

Week 1 of triathlon training…success! Mostly? I think. Coordinating schedules with a husband who has evening classes and around a 15 month old is not nearly as easy as one would think. By the numbers… I did 20 miles on the bike, 5 miles of running, and 500 yards of swimming. Last week…. Monday: Swam 8×50 […]

July 3, 2014

I’m excited to get back into racing shape. With triathlon training under way (exception, this morning because little man got Tubes in his ears) I figured throwing a few fun races into the mix this month and maybe next isn’t a bad way to keep myself motivated and training hard for Nations Tri and for […]

Weigh In Wednesday: Week 2

July 2, 2014

Happy Hump Day – or pseud0-Thursday as it may be – given the short week. I’m pretty pumped for this week – triathlon training began and I’m feeling good about workouts…despite my shotty eating the past couple of days (and over the weekend) when I was home with Ethan after his surgery (he got tubes in his ears […]
