PRs and Peloton challenges


are those two connected? If so, maybe there’s a PR in my January future. The run down isn’t much of one as I took it easy this week to get my calves, hamstring to calm the fuck down. Mission mostly accomplished.  I’ll touch on it below but in the mean time linking up with Kim […]

42 and Grateful


another non rundown, but in honor of the holiday I’m linking up with Deborah and Kim to talk about running-adjacent things I’m grateful for. As I mentioned last week, I drove down to Florida for Thanksgiving and my birthday and two of the highlights were catching up with Coco and Jenn on the drive. Funny […]

Race Recap: Malibu Half Marathon


because my weekly run down can be summed up as: I ran and saw amazing bloggers (more on that in a post soon) on my ~ 1300 mile drive, I’m instead linking up with Kim and Deborah for this race recap of my ninth? half marathon. I so love this distance. Also, the race was […]

November Coffee: Malibu Half & Half Marathon Training


I am over virtual races, especially expensive commercial ones, but this one is tempting. The sugar bomb drink this week was the white mocha hot chocolate which… tracked and moved on. Over non-virtual coffee, I’m joining Coco and Deborah to talk about the Malibu Half, which is next weekend, and half marathon training overall. I’ve […]

Runners Roundup: NYCRUNS Haunted Island 10K


somehow, my first ever Halloween run. I’d planned to go full Halloween when I ran the Poland Spring 5M in 2017, but it was pouring and that’s the only time I’ve raced this weekend. Linking up with Coach Debbie Runs, Confessions of a Mother Runner, Mile by Mile, Runs with Pugs, and Laura Norris Running […]

this week’s runs were…


all in the evening (with the exception of Thursday) on days I don’t typically run scheduled around in person work and a COVID booster in tandem with walks to and from the office on two days the end of Malibu Half training and… they happened. Which I wasn’t 100% confident in when I woke to […]

summer or fall?


I have a love/hate relationship with social media, but had my fifteen minutes of fame on Thursday-Friday when I tweeted about the ridiculous lack of recognition that SVU was getting for 500 episodes and the role that a woman lead, director and executive producer played. Somehow that was seen by the show runners and well, […]

Fabulous Fall Fun


Mom found the pic on the left on her phone, which sort of inspired the one on the right. We’re guessing it was from summer 2007 just before I chopped my hair for Locks of Love, although it was reddish by the time I cut it.  I miss the braids, but can’t fathom growing it […]

a funny thing happened on the way to goal


One of my 2021 goals: Start the year on pace for 900 miles. That was originally my hard goal for 2021, but as I mentioned, I have no idea what running will look like once we return to the office. Even if I’m ready to return to the gym to shower at that point, there’s […]

hello fall


I love you. You’re my favorite season. Actually I love spring too, but fewer allergies give the nod to fall. And what comes after fall? Quilt season! Well, my apartment is so toasty it’s never truly quilt season, but I can’t wait to wrap up in this near the window while I read. So many […]
