Friday was a long run, 11 miles, and it was seriously the wettest imaginable run by the end. But my legs felt good, my lungs felt great (especially considering I’ve been fighting a cold) and I was soooo pleased with how good my foot felt. Afterward was spent getting mani-pedis with my BAM running ladies and my girlies. 🙂 Afterward Mandy, Amber and their significant … Continue reading Light it Up 5k Race Recap

For one, I’ve hardly eaten, and what I have eaten hasn’t been my norm… Cooking dinner for two people when you usually cook … Continue reading Getting into the swing of a summer routine…

Monday: Run 4 miles & Yoga Tuesday: Run 3 … Continue reading Sunday Recap
