…And Take Names.


Hello and Happy day to you!

Every few months I feel like I write one of these posts…

The post where I realize I am slacking (no offense Fallon!), decide to pick myself up by the bootstraps and get my sh*t together.

Also known as this post, this post, this post and this post.

The post where I decide to start kicking a$$ and taking names.

This post is a little different though.

Foodie Friday: The Lazy Runner Edition


Hello and happy day to you!

Today’s edition of “Foodie Friday” is going to be a little bit different.

Don’t freak out.

Instead of sharing a recipe that I like, I have a few quick and easy meal suggestions for you.

This post was inspired by a conversation I had with one of my best friends a few weeks ago.

She was complaining commenting on how she never has time to cook dinner because she is so busy working,

taking care of her family,

cleaning the house,

and of course,

working out.

And I, being the absolute laziest meal-prepper on the planet…

gave her a few suggestions that I use to make my meal prep Monday as short and sweet as possible.

I thought it would be a great idea to share those tips with you…

So here we goooooo!

I think I can, I think I can…


Hello and Happy day to you!

As many of you know, I just (praise the Lord!) recovered from a minor hamstring injury that forced me to pull out of Rock n’ Roll San Diego.

Boo!

But! I am back running and haven’t had any problems with my hamstring since.

WOO WHOO!

I do, however, feel as though I have lost some fitness.

Or maybe it is in my head?

Who knows.

I am feeling a little off this week. Continue reading

Things That (As A Runner) I Can’t Stand!


Hello and Happy day to you!

As a runner, there are certain things that really piss me off!

I am sure most people don’t understand, but maybe you (being a fellow runner) will agree with me…

1. When some moron sprints ahead and then stops in front of me in the middle of a race.

Pull your head out of your ass, man! I mean come on! It’s called peripheral vision, use it and check out your surroundings before you come to a complete freakin’ stop. I understand that you are tired, but really? Continue reading

City to the Sea Half Marathon Race Review & Recap


unnamed

Everyone!

I ran the City to the Sea Half Marathon over the weekend, and I must say, it was glorious.

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook (if you don’t, you should),

you probably already know…

watch

 I took home another shiny new PR!

(A special thanks to PaceBands for providing me with the 2:12:30 band I used during this race… it was SO HELPFUL.)

No, this is not an overall PR, but considering I started the year running a 2:19 Half Marathon…

I am grateful to be where I am now.

The race just so happened to fall on my birthday, so it was an awesome present to give myself.

Last night’s amazing dinner, KT tape & other randomness!


So a friend at work gave me crap a little bit ago for all of my “running” related posts on Facebook, so I thought I would show him up by posting some randomness and throw a wrench in the game (here catch!).

My “Thursday friend” (JulieCat) is an amazing cook (and friend might I add… and not just on Thursdays either) and her dinner last night was absolutely delicious! I wanted to share so you can drool be inspired to make this dish yourself. Here is a picture of the salmon salad that she put together:
