SOCKS!

If you know me or if you follow me anywhere else you know I’m crazy totally 150% obsessed with my socks… but not just any socks PRO Compression socks! Just as a back story I hate socks, I always hated socks, as a kid, as a teen, as an adult, socks and me were NOT …

A New Plan

I’m in training… I was going to be secretly in training but whats the point in that? Anyway I am running a half marathon in January, 10-ish weeks to be kind of exact… did I mention this half is in NY… I’m crazy I know, but yay races! My plan is to run… to run …

Ode to Fall

Fall… my favorite season, well in the interest of full disclosure and honesty it’s a close toss up between fall and summer… hello beach, pools and loads of sunshine… anyway  summer running is not my favorite… fall running is, so as I was saying… An ode to Fall. I love you Fall. I love your …

Changes

Things have changed since I last blogged… not too many things yet everything. Without going into excessive amounts of details and long, scary, story later my family of 3 is now a family of 4! I started running more consistently then see above but am almost back on track again so yay! and I started …

Global Running Day 2017

It’s 10am. I have not run yet. I did laundry I walked the dog I moved the car (don’t ask, it’s something that has to be done strategically around school buses and lets just say it is a production and a thorn in my slide) I’ve also been working for close to 2 hours and …

Long Road

To say it has been a long road back for me to consistent running would be an understatement, it has been a long-twisty-hilly-bumpy road with a few bad turns down one way streets, dead ends and circles BUT I’m back and I’m in a good place of slowly improving and implementing lasting changes. Almost 4 …

April Recap

April did not go according to plan (does anything really do though?) and IT IS OK. Yup, totally cool. Look, plans are like rule, they are meant to be broken or in this case they are meant to totally fall apart. I’m not going to sit around and mope or beat my self up for …

Seasonal Allergies

I’ve blogged about my struggle with running and allergies quite a few times (in-depth here and here ) and still years later it SUCKS. I’ve got NO working tips for you I’ve got NO advice that works well- at least it doesn’t work for me I don’t want to complain, been there, done that. Everyone who suffers from …

The Watch Dilemma

I do this thing where maybe twice a year I purchase a GPS watch… I wait not so patiently until I test it out, I love it, I post about it then it hits me like a wrecking ball. I don’t need this $300 watch I don’t deserve this $400 gadget I’m not runner enough for this $600 tech What …

New Month, New Season.

A new month, a new season, the same goal – be consistent! I have a love hate relationship spring – more hours of daylight, warm(er) temps, no more snow, ice and slush, mud, allergies, is it cold? is it hot? WTH do I wear? See for me spring is a little complicated, wonderful but it like …
