My Running Journey Mile by Mile :)

Happy Monday folks! Here are some randoms from the past week… What?! How does the below even happen?! I’m sure there will be many more fun positions like this in my future. Green Bean Fries. I’ve been diggin em lately! Have you tried them yet? Our new gym!!! In our old house, we had a pretty sweet set up (see HERE), but I think I like our new gym even more! We now have mirror lined walls, a larger fan mounted on the wall instead of sitting on the bike and still have the portable AC unit to keep things cool […]

Green Bean Fries

Look at me blogging back to back weeks! Funny, as I used to post every other day, haha. Let’s delve right into it… I got my hands on the new Halo Top Birthday Cake ice cream. I love this brand. It’s only 240-280 calories for the whole pint AND has 24 grams of protein. Can’t beat that with a stick! <-please tell me you’ve heard that saying? The texture is perfect if you let it sit for a few minutes- MUCH better than artic zero! Thanks, Jolene for hooking me up! Kara is still not sleeping through the night. Three […]


Wellllll Helllooooo There! Yes, yes I know… It has been forever since I posted. It honestly doesn’t feel like a month has passed, but it has. My apologizes. Life took over one again and blogging got put on the back burner. Get ready for picture overload. Here are some happenings to catch you up… Running has resumed and I am in my happy place! I’ve been running anywhere from 4-8 miles and plan on increasing my long run by one mile each week to ramp up for marathon training. Thaaaaaat’s right. I said marathon training. Not sure which one yet, […]

Kara's 1st Pool Trip

Well HELLO there ladies and gentleman! It’s officially been over a month since I’ve last blogged. Geeze! I don’t really have a good excuse other than that I’ve been busy with Kara and work and moving. #lifehappens My mom actually asked if something was wrong with her blog subscription because she wasn’t receiving any of my posts… yaaaa, that’s because I didn’t write any, haha. We moved at the end of last month (only 15 minutes from where we used to live) and let me tell you, we are no where near close to being settled in. I wish I […]

Kara turned three months on March 3rd. THREE MONTHS!!! Time always went by fast, but boy does it fly at super sonic speed these days! She now weighs around 12 lbs and is fitting into 0-3 month clothing- finally! She loves cooing and smiling, especially after feeding. Like her mommy, she’s happiest with a full belly 😉 I’ve said it every month, but I can’t believe we have a baby. With that said, she’s the most amazing thing that’s happened to us <3 SLEEPING. A few days before Kara hit 11 weeks she started sleeping from 8-10PM to 4-6AM. Hallelujah! But then, […]

Kara 3 months

Happy Friday Folks! I survived my first week back to work and am lucky enough to have worked from home two days this week- woo hoo! Magic Mugs. I bought a Groupon to make these fun mugs and gave one to my sister. They turn from a completely black mug to a picture when you add hot water. I put a collage of Kara’s Valentines Day pictures on mine. I loved getting a text from my sister of her mug- her, Kara and I at my baby shower turned baby debut when Kara was 3 days old. Tuesday, March 8. […]

My workouts were pretty lackluster last week. After running in the Gasparilla Half I knew my body needed rest and to take it easy, so that’s what I did I noticed after my Tuesday run that my right foot was hurting a bit on the outer right side and underneath. Even when I just walked around the house. I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been wearing sandals lately or possibly an overuse injury, or both. I did ramp up my mileage and speed pretty quickly, so I wouldn’t be surprised. The weather here is perfect right now, so my foot better get […]
