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 […]

2022 Goals


Christmas was different again this year, as it likely was if you celebrate. Luckily it also had a side of silliness with the inflatable tour through mom’s neighborhood Was able to see my brother, sister in law and the kids, which was awesome. We had a white Christmas Eve, I had some running/fashion fun and […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
