Running into 2022


running the hell away from 2021? I remain grateful to be healthy, working but I am utterly and totally over the last two years. A look back at 2021: GoTheDist December: 380,678 steps 176.74 miles run/walked 88.49 miles run (when did that become a cutback month total!) GoTheDist Q4 1,220,598 steps (yes, I remember well […]

Oh say can you dead bug?!


I was so excited to be a part of this challenge when Coco floated it by us. I ended up laughing so hard when I saw my “assignment”. If you’ve been here since my first PT stint, you might recall I could not do a dead bug. I finished PT without being an insect. Nope […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Jumping into June head first


but first a little rewind.. My do-nothing Sunday to close last week’s wrap ended up as a nice strength day, which made up for the fact that I literally did not leave my apartment. Haven’t had one of those days in a while but 40s and pouring rain? No thanks. The most exciting news in […]

when you start a post on Sunday morning


and the week is a blur… Oops. All fine, I just have almost no recollection of my runs or anything else. Happy Passover and Happy early Easter to those who celebrate either. Hope you’re able to have healthy & safe holidays in these weird but improving times. Despite saying I was only committed to Matty’s […]

a weird week


A good weird week, but still a weird one. Routine was a little upside down, but you roll with it. Also, I got excited about cooking something that wasn’t salmon, which never happens. OK, I should say making, not cooking, but utterly obsessed with Deborah’s dill pickle ranch dressing. It made my baby carrots way […]

well behaved women seldom make history


So many strong women on my mind this week. Friends, family, icons.  So much has been done, yet so much remains. I had such fun reading this Run to the Finish post as I wrap my head around how Apple Watch data differs from Garmin’s. I have the added layer of different because I never […]
