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. […]

WIAW: An Opening Shift

WORKOUTS Monday: 30 minutes on stationary bike/ Body Pump Tuesday: 4 miles @ 9:15 pace outside/ Pilates Wednesday: Rest ****** Here’s another What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) for you! Thanks to Jenn for hosting the foodie party! Today I’m highlighting what I eat on a day that I open at work. The stores hours are 10-7 during the week and I get there at 9:45AM to open the store and get everything ready. This means I have to leave around 9/9:15. Some mornings I’ll run before work, but on this particular day I didn’t. I “slept in” until 7:15 and […]

A Good Run, My Sis is Awesome, Some Random Goodness

WORKOUTS Friday: 4 miles @ 8:38 pace on trail Saturday: Rest ****** Friday morning I took Kristin and her boo, Rich, to the airport at 6AM. They were headed to the Cayman Islands for a work conference for Rich- how fun! I knew Maddie (Kristin’s dog) would be home alone for the majority of the day, so I decided to go back to the house and do my run from there. I had an easy 4 miles on tap and headed out right when I got back at 6:30 to avoid the heat/humidity as much as I could. My run […]


WORKOUT Wednesday: 4 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ Yoga Thursday: Body Pump- I am going to be SORE after this class! ****** Just an FYI- This is a totally random post. There have been so many fresh things I’ve been loving lately and I thought I’d share… You’re welcome šŸ™‚ * Freshly painted toenails. I rarely paint my fingernails, usually only for races, haha, but I ALWAYS keep my toenailsĀ painted. Mainly because I have two toenails that could fall off if pulled the wrong way- but that’s another story šŸ™‚ I am also cheap, so 90% of the time, […]

My Highlights from Space Coast

WORKOUT Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill Sunday: 8 miles @ 8:12 pace on trail Both days I felt pretty good. Sunday’s run outside was a little tougher than usual, but certainly not hard by any means. I am still foam rolling like crazy. ****** I know everyone besides my fellow Floridian’s will hate me for saying this, but the heat and humidity are just killing me. We had a freakin record high of 84 this week. 84, people. It’s December and I’m running in shorts and a bra. I sweat my butt off walking my dog in […]

Jet City Expresso

WORKOUT 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ Yoga This run actually went better than I expected, as my upper quads and glutes were pretty sore from Body Pump yesterday. I think it had a little something to do with going to Yoga. ****** I’m not as sore as I would like to be after taking Body Pump. This is probably because it was my first time taking the class and I was unsure of how much weight to use for each exercise. Next time I’ll be sure to challenge myself more! I usually let running take care of my […]

Bagel, 18 miles, SUSHI!

WORKOUT 18 miles @ 7:52 pace on trail 68 degrees, 95% humidity. Enough said. Recap below. ****** After watching the weather on the news last night, Todd and I decided it would be smart to switch our long runs to today. The low was lower (64 vs 69) and there was less chance of rain (30% vs 50%). Since the temps and humidity areĀ arisin’ I decided to head out before the sun rose. I set my alarm super early so I could wake up with enough time to make my usual pre-race meal… the bagel. Of course I could just […]

Saturday Quickies

WORKOUT Easy 6 miles @ 8:30 on treadmill I was going to run 8 on the trail today, but the weather was really weird- sprinkling on and off, windy and cold! I’ll attempt to head out again tomorrow. My knee felt the same but after 5 miles this time theĀ uncomfortableĀ feeling went away… hmm. ****** Today was full of quickies. Get your mind out of the gutter!Ā I had a quick and AWESOME coffee date with my new friend MaryĀ at SBucks. She is a super busy gal and I’m glad I had the opportunity to snatch some of her free time šŸ™‚ […]


This was not an easy list to create. Initially I thought this post would take 10 minutes, but oh no! It was a lot harder to narrow down things that I’m really addicted to versus just really like. When something popped in my head I’d ask myself, “Self, could you live without this?” And obviously I could live without everything on this list, but hey, what kind of boring life would that be?! So, here is goes: RUNNING- duh! Publix- I look forward to their new weekly ad every Thursday! Target- orĀ Targe, enough said OATMEAL- I have a huge bowl […]
