My Running Journey Mile by Mile :)

This past week was interesting. If you follow me on Instagram (@heatherrunsfast), you’ll know I started running more this past week. I kind of went from 0-60, but eh, whatever, haha. Here’s the rundown- get it 😉 Sunday: 4 miles @ 8:35 on the treadmill Monday: 8 miles @ 8:21 pace with Jolene in the AM outside Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:35 on treadmill Wednesday: 9 miles @ 8:21 on the tread in the AM Thursday: Body Pump!!!! I am SO happy to be back at it. I’ve missed this class so much! Friday: 9 miles @ 8:00 outside in […]

Gasparilla 2017

Every weekend we go over to my parents to hang out. We LOVE spending time with Nana and Grandpa, and sometimes Aunt Kristin comes, too! Kara always walks over to the backdoor, points outside and says, uhhh uhhh. This past weekend it was raining and she was so pissed she couldn’t go out, haha. The rain did let up though and Kara had fun playing in the puddles! Todd and I got sushi for lunch on Valentines Day so we could have a non-baby date. It was delish, as always. I saw a post on IG for cauliflower rice sushi and […]

Kara got her first time out at Daycare last week! She pulled a kids hair in the morning and then did it again in the afternoon. Ana said “NO, Kara!” And Kara started crying. She doesn’t like the word no, haha. So Ana said, “OK, Kara, let’s go to timeout.” And she sat on a little bench. I think it’s hilarious that a one year old is in time out, but it’s never too early to set the ground rules, right? (Random picture of Kara and Nana this weekend :)) I’m taking a little time out from running right now. After […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Halo Top

I apologize in advance for the uber randomness of this post… but I guess most of my posts have been pretty random lately, haha. Enjoy! It’s actually colder in Tampa this week! The overnight lows are in the mid 40’s and I’m loving the chance to dress Kara in some of the cute warmer clothes she has. Nana (my mom) got her the winky kitty sweater <3 It’s our routine to put shoes on in the morning on the first stair. She walks over to it and sits down, haha. Had this cup of cheesiness this week and it hit the spot. […]

Annies Mac N Cheese

What a beautiful morning! (Picture taken in my neighborhood The most delicious, fudgey, rich, chocolate brownie. The. Best. Ever. Finally tried these- meh. Taste was OK, texture was pretty hard. Not sure if maybe this was old? Still loving all things Pumpkin Spice! I saw Sugar Runs post a photo on Instagram of Turmeric Oats and since I love oats so much, I decided to give it a try (with a few tweaks). I loved it! I stole Kara’s whole milk as the fat source, as that’s needed to help absorb the nutrients from the turmeric. I’m a NUUN Ambassador again! […]

Good Morning

…of Kara!!! As you know, Monday was Martin Luther King Day. A lot of companies had off, including Kara’s daycare, but ours (Todd and I work at the same place) did not. I am usually the one who ends up working from home or taking a vacation day to watch Kara, but this time Todd took off for a Daddy Daughter Day <3 I have to say, Kara is freaking AWESOME right now and I am totally loving this stage of her life. I was completely jealous of their extended weekend, which Todd knew, so he sent me pictures of […]

Disney Marathon Weekend Part 1!!! We left off with us JUST making it to our corrals… Literally 5 minutes later, Mickey counted us down, the fireworks went off and the race was under way. If you recall, the weather was cold for this FL girl (35 degrees) but the 15mph wind is what really sucked. Made the “feels like” temp in the 20’s! The wind scared Jolene and I so much. After the Shamrock Marathon (my PR- 3:13, which would have been under 3:10 without the wind) and Space Coast a few years ago (which, ironically is where I met Jolene for […]
