The Outer Banks (and a quick 26.2 mile run while I was there)

November 17, 2013

Race Day!  Oh yes, I almost forgot that was why we came.  With mine and my husband’s ever-evolving, hectic schedules, we never get to see each other.  He is fast asleep when I get home, and gone to work before I awake.  We have a wonderful relationship via texts and Instagram. So I sneakily snuck […]

I have entered the taper. The bizzaro world of training which makes you feel like you aren’t sure if your body can run further than 8 miles. One weekend, you are doing a straight twenty miles, the next, you are only required to do 10, then 8, then??? You’re just supposed to run 26.2 next […]

Hello Fall! Every runner’s favorite time of year.  The sun is still shining, the pollen is down, the runs are cooler, the times are faster, and it’s the time of year where being outside makes you feel great to be alive.  I used to be a Summer girl for the majority of my life, but […]

When’s the best age for a tattoo? 40!

I’ve had a pretty adventurous week here in the mid stride of my fortieth year. I’ve been intending on getting a tattoo marking the completion of my first marathon (back in March) and waited until a Bestie from the Westie came to visit from California so we could get them together. We had so much […]

I got some feedback from my last post, and I realized that sometimes I take for granted the simple things I have learned that can be life changing. Even if you are already a master of happiness, I always love a good refresher course in ways to be awesome. Yes, this list has been made […]
