My girlfriends and I often talk about how great it is to be in our 40s. Wait…I know…stop laughing. I mean obviously the lines between my brows are not better in my 40s than they were, say, in my 20s. And, obviously the fact that it’s harder to get fit, and harder to do a … More Gimme Some Sugar
Spoiler…I did NOT win the race. I know…I know…but there is always next year. Last night (in prep for today’s Ten Mile) I ate my pasta dinner, drank lots of water, got all of my gear ready, and went to bed at 9:30. Well, I tried to go to bed at 9:30 but instead played … More Finisher.
For months now, tomorrow’s 10 mile race has been staring me down. I’ve been avoiding the thought of it (I just sat down to read my race packet 15 minutes ago). An injury that flared up stopped my training and, in turn, stopped me completely. It made for a challenging ten weeks. Physically and mentally. … More Ten. Miles. To. Something. Good.
Can I be honest with you? I don’t love running. I love the idea of running. I love the amount of calories I can burn running.

Do you know what I’m doing tomorrow night? Because I know myself well…let me tell you how this is going to go down. I’m going to have dinner with my girlfriends, enjoy some wine, head to the Beyonce concert, and approximately 34 seconds after she appears on-stage my mind will start spinning… I want thighs … More And. We’re. Back.
To be filed under “you’ve gotta be f-cking kidding me with this” we’ve learned of two more family members facing health crises this week. Both involving heart failure. Because, really, why would anyone want even a teensy respite from the stress and drama that go along with family health issues? This is where I could … More Bubble. Wrapping. My. World.
Last night I was watching the Super Bowl…well not really…it was on in the background and I paid attention when it sounded like someone had a touchdown or when commercials came on. But still…it was on. I happened to be paying attention when the Toyota Rav4 commercial came on. It ended with the song “I … More I. Wish. I. Were. A. Little. Bit. Taller.
So, as you know I’ve been on this weight loss adventure. I started in June and have lost 30 of my desired 40 lbs. I feel and look great. I’ve been “forced” to buy new clothes. It’s been a fabulous transformation. You know what is not fabulous? The f-cking ten lbs that I still have … More The. Way. I. Make. Me. Feel.
I woke up at 4am on New Year’s Day knowing I needed to do some damage control. My alarm would be going off in a couple hours and I needed to take some Advil, down a good amount of water, and have just a little more sleep if I intended to survive. When my alarm … More Cutting. Off. And. Lacing. Up.
