In case you hadn't noticed, I took a week and a half off of running. Seriously, if you're going to do that, the tail end of winter is the perfect time. I was feeling a little run down initially, plus I have no big running goals at the moment. I kept myself active in other … Continue reading Does running really make you hungrier?
So you wanna go on a Racecation . . .
Now watcha gonna do? It's tempting to do all the things when you go on racecation, but if you actually want to race, you'll be better served by taking it easy. That doesn't mean you have to lock yourself in your hotel room! Walking Tours This may seem conterintuitive, but the truth is most walking … Continue reading So you wanna go on a Racecation . . .
Adventures with a creamsicle cat
I'm sharing more stories about Gizmo (for those that don't know, we helped him cross the Rainbow Bridge last week -- read more about him here). As I was sorting through photos and trying to choose them for the post above, there were so many that told stories. Gizmo enjoying some time outside safely This photo … Continue reading Adventures with a creamsicle cat
To everything there is a season: TOLT
I'm Thinking Out Loud , randomly, in no particular order: things ending, another movie, sleeping patterns, and running with dogs. Because that's my life! Well, running with a dog, anyway.

You must do the things you think you cannot do. -- Eleanor Roosevelt Getting comfortable being uncomfortable That was something mentioned in one of the … Continue reading Chocolate makes everything better: TOLT
Just Do It: TOLT
I'm Thinking Out Loud about how everyone fears the unknown, a few thoughts on what a runner's body looks like, the mysterious workings of the canine mind, and matzo brei. Bring on the matzo brei! You must do the things you think you cannot do. -- Eleanor Roosevelt Are you clinging to preconceived notions? I let the cat … Continue reading Just Do It: TOLT
NOLA & Sightseeing: TOLT
I'm Thinking Out Loud about NOLA again, only this time, it's about the attractions: what we did, not what we ate. Well, sort of; food might be involved in what we did, too. Despite wracking up lots of steps, even before my half, we didn't do a lot -- because of that half marathon. And because this … Continue reading NOLA & Sightseeing: TOLT
NOLA & Food: TOLT
I'm Thinking Out Loud something very simple today: thank God for spandex! Have you ever eaten your way through New Orleans? If you follow me on Instagram (here), you know I sure did last week. I was a little afraid I wouldn't fit into the only pair of jeans I brought, but spandex is our friend sometimes. … Continue reading NOLA & Food: TOLT
