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 […]

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

Linking up with Coach Debbie Runs, Confessions of a Mother Runner, Mile by Mile, Runs with Pugs, and Laura Norris Running […]
