Running into 2021


Into? Away from? What a week. This isn’t the place for that, so I’ll just offer love and hugs and an ear if anyone ever needs one. By far the highlight of my week was celebrating my fourth running anniversary, but it was overall a really solid week of running. While on my runs I […]

Mile High Run Club: Mental edition


I knew I wanted to work out tonight and didn’t have the attention span to stay on the treadmill at the gym. So I checked Mile High Run Club’s schedule and saw there was something called a Jingle Bell Jog on the calendar for 7PM. It was The Distance, which I did not like the […]

Gone: 30 minute goal


after thinking about this on and off for the last few weeks, I just threw the 30 minute daily goal out the window. I had mentally written a blog post for today explaining how much work I had to do to get my average back over 30 minutes after a short run (no running allowed […]

Review: The Fortune Cookie Chronicles


This book took me way too long to move up Mt. TBR and then once I was reading it, way too long to finish. Not because it wasn’t good — but because July is when two of my “must read now” books are published and a few library books hit too. I don’t recall when […]

Review: Running Like a Girl


this may be the quintessential “don’t judge a book by its cover”, or, by its title. When I first stumbled on it, I disregarded it as probably patronizing. The “Bridget Jones-like writer” endorsement from The Washington Post didn’t really help matters. I was pleasantly surprised to be completely wrong. “You don’t run,” he corrected me. “But you’re […]

RunTheYear / GoTheDist 2017 Halfway Point


Whooah, we’re half way there…Take my hand and we’ll make it, I swear…Livin’ on a prayer It seems like just yesterday I was setting my 2017 goals and now we’re at the year’s halfway mark. I thought I had a set mileage goal, but I had a 3.8m step goal (with 4m as stretch and […]

#GoTheDist 2017: January Chapter


After some family events, I knew January was going to be more of a struggle but I was determined. Even if hitting January 2016 wasn’t possible I wanted to at least hit January 2015 and, ideally, 300K steps. Mission Accomplished! January totals: 301,270 steps 127.16 miles walked 53.01 miles biked I came just shy, 428 […]

2016 reading challenge


At least the one I’m planning on at this moment.  Level: 50+ Married with Children I think the reason I’m struggling with finishing the A-Z challenge is an issue I’ve had since high school. I hate being told what to read. If I have to read something, I won’t. That’s why I end up avoiding things […]
