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 […]

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 […]

getting to the CORE of it


I’ve been struggling with blog titles lately but this one wrote itself when Kim pinged a few of us about Matty Maggiacomo’s SUMMER CRUNCH challenge. I got a little out of my strength training routine with a few too many excuses, so this is the perfect re-set. So far so good a week in. This […]

Dashing through December with Jingle Bells


Where on earth did this month go? How is it already Christmas week? Apologies for a comments blitz of late. I’m trying desperately to catch up. One of these days I’ll either put email on my phone or figure out how to blog. Not gonna happen. It’s not even technically winter yet as I type […]

Ted Corbitt 2019


Original post title: Trying not to run on caffeine and sugar. That was before this became a pointless weekly run down due to a wonderfully crazy work week. My office has our annual gala on Monday and I wear a lot of hats for that. On the plus side, I made relatively good decisions for […]

NYC Half Marathon: Race Week


A wardrobe miracle happened this week (no, not that I matched, although that did happen too!) I found a pair of pants that fit at the ankle. Of course they were actually meant to be capris, but that’s the story of my life. These kept me warm enough on a chilly day that I hope […]

Physical Therapy Week 3


This was the first running week that felt normal-ish since injury. Baby steps forward. Before I get to this week, I had a very pleasant surprise in my inbox Friday morning: I’ve been selected a Skirt Sports Ambassador! Did not see that coming at all as my social media activity is typically way too low […]

Physical Therapy: Week 2 and Half Marathon Recovery


One thing I forgot to touch on in either the weekly wrap or the race recap is how much I loved the A1A Half Marathon shirt. Last year’s was cute, but the cut was infuriating and I almost never wore it because I’m forever tugging at it. This year I switched it at the expo […]
