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.

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 […]

Forward March


on the eve of a year of covid19, I think I’m the last person to post about virtual races. Between rehabbing the IT band last spring and a lack of interest, I didn’t really do many virtual races or the distance challenges, and I didn’t do the one I thought I would definitely do. That […]

crawling into a long weekend


Felt a little under the weather for the beginning of the week. Nothing worrisome, just winter bug so kind of went by feel until I felt better, which I very much do now. I also realized that like with homework, running goes better on a deadline: 9a dentist appointment, get out the door; snow tomorrow? […]
