My morning was thrown all off today. Before having breakfast, I actually had to take hubs to work so he could get some work done on his car. This meant that it was sort of a roll-out-of-bed-throw-hair-in-a-pony-promptly-put-on-sunglasses start to my day. I was hungry by the time I got back, so I ate breakfast first, […]

Well, after all my excitement for 5:00 to come yesterday, it turns out there was a change of plans. Jay got home a little late, we got some discouraging news from the IRS (aka, expected money not coming…), and then, our TV blew up… Not exactly how I was planning on spending my evening, to […]

At 6:30 this morning, I was up and ready to go! Before leaving the house, I snacked on a piece of almond butter + banana toast for some pre-race fuel. By 7:45, I was down at the 10K Spring Run-Off, freezing my tush off. My girl Eileen and I drove down at the same time […]

You like that title?? Knowing that at 3:00 today I’d be on vacation for five days was definitely a good enough motivator to pop right outta bed this morning! I started off my “Pseudo Friday” with a glorious 4-mile run on the treadmill. Had it not been for time constraints, I probably would have kept […]
