Somehow it seems as though mostly what I'm sharing is senior moments (not really -- but it feels that way!). And a long discourse on chihuahuas that I totally understand if you skip it. Pull up chair and mug with Coco and Deborah and me for the ultimate coffee tea date. If we were enjoying high tea . . … Continue reading The Curious Case of the Standard Chihuahua: Spilling over tea/coffee February 2018
Songs that involved ice, that is. I tried to look up new ones but nothing caught my fancy. Ice seemed to play somewhat prominently in this week. This felt like the first normal activity week in a long, long time. And no shoveling, either, which was a blessing (although the remnants tried to take me … Continue reading I ran out of ice: 1/22- 28 Weekly Wrap
It seems a little unfair, really, that as we reach the peak of our race training, many of the things that keep us in shape tend to fall by the wayside: good nutrition, prehab, cross training. Did that happen to me in June? You be the judge! Getting in scheduled runs I stuck to my … Continue reading June 2017: Did I pass?
The toll of three halfs in as many months began to make itself known in May. I am in awe of people who run marathons every month or a gazillion halfs a month. That's not me. Let's get into it. Getting in scheduled runs Cold, rainy long runs. Sudden 90 degree heat. Windy. May wasn't … Continue reading May 2017: Did I pass?
When you choose to do all your halfs as racecations, it's always a busy week before your race. I'm typing this at the beginning of the week, before most of what I'm writing about even happened, but if there's one thing I know for sure this week, it's gonna be busy. I'm joining up with the … Continue reading Half #16, State#14: 4/24- 30 Weekly Wrap
The great thing about running two halfs a month a part is that you really don't have to work as hard. Especially when you decide that the second half is just a training run (we'll see how that works). Let's dive right into how April went down. Getting in scheduled runs I had hoped to … Continue reading April 2017: Did I pass?
I do love to pamper myself. I may not have kids, but I have a big kid, aka Mr. Judy, and I have the furkids. And then there's the parents. Yes, like most women, I have a tendency to put the needs of others before my own. The old flight attendant line is true, though: … Continue reading 5 Ways to put on your oxygen mask
We continued with the weather whiplash in March, and we thought we got a lot of snow in February? Thanks to Blizzard Stella, we got almost twice as much in March. In one day. To say that made running challenging is an understatement. And then there was the cold! So how did I mange my … Continue reading March 2017: Did I pass?
. . . Comes around I'll get to the title in the Favorites of the Week. Nothing super exciting about this week, again, other than the fact that I survived the workouts Rachel @ Runningonhappy cooked up for me and had a real confidence building long run. I'm joining up with the Weekly Wrap from Holly … Continue reading What goes around . . .: 2/28-3/5 Weekly Wrap
I think February might be dubbed the month of self care, as in the month I got back into trying to take better care of myself -- so that I can care for others. The weather was wild and wacky: wind, cold, record breaking heat, killer snowstorms, freezing rain -- yes, all in one month. … Continue reading February 2017: Did I pass?
