meandering through May


9,647th blog “redesign” in the last six months. None intentional, but I think comments finally fully not broken. Whee! It was driving me bonkers not to be able to tell at a glance if I’d answered a comment. Another week of Quarantime. I think it’s nine weeks, but I’ve completely lost track. Another week where […]

Adulting in the time of COVID19


some of this was scrapped from last week. Things I’m proud of so far, quite random and in no particular order and definitely about a 0.5 on a 0-10 of Covid19 preparedness: my apartment is finally settling in, only 7.5 years later I’m washing dishes daily and not eating out of tupperware except when it’s […]

Leaping into March


I know February is the shortest month and all that jazz, but wow, I blinked and missed it. I actually LEAPED into the sale as soon as they announced it. Spring should be for skirt shopping, but I couldn’t pass up the Lotta Breeze Capri in fuschia/black. How can I resist pink? More on the […]

Race Recap: Zooma Bermuda


more to come on Bermuda overall in, hopefully, a #TravelTuesday post. In the mean time, my thoughts on an amazing racecation. First of all, major love and shout out to the entire Zooma and OnPace race teams. They and their partners put on a fabulous inaugural Bermuda race and I can’t wait to return to […]

PT 2020 Week 1: “I Like Hard”


This week marked my third running anniversary. With it falling on a weekday and my not running that day due to PT, I didn’t mark it in any special way. I will… just haven’t decided the form it will take. I’m the worst at doing things on the actual day anyway. I officially deferred Fort […]

Physical Therapy 2020: Week 0


I was working on a post to closeout 2019 and share my 2020 goals, when a wonderful thing happened. I realized I could run a little! Linking up with Deborah and Kim to share this week. Had an amazing weekend in the Rochester area with my college roommate and her kids. We share an obsession […]

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 […]

Thankful for running


I’m the worst about doing those gratitude posts on social media. I always feel like I’d leave out someone or something, or I’d start strong and peter off because I’ve never been a daily poster. And after I’d started this on Monday, I realized it was the Tuesday Topics. Fail on me. I know I’ve […]

This is 40


can I just whine for a second? I’m a big country fan and I had the perfect “anthem” when I turned 30. Tim McGraw’s My Next Thirty Years.  I think I’ll take a moment, celebrate my age The ending of an era and the turning of a page Now it’s time to focus in on where […]

Weekly (Not Much) Run Down: Recovery Edition


In case you missed it, my marathon length race recap. I’m still walking on air and part of me can’t believe the marathon is over. No, I’m not jumping into another one. I’m looking forward to properly training for Fort Lauderdale and Bermuda (and maybe Lebow, since I just can’t quit Fred).  I’m starting to […]
