Philadelphia Marathon 2014 Recap

I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing Thanksgiving with lots of good food! What better way to spend the next morning than reading a super long race recap? I’m sure that was the first thing you felt like doing when you woke up this morning. If you’re up for it, grab some coffee and get comfortable because this […]

A Time To Be Thankful (TOL 27)

For the past few week, I’ve been seeing a lot of blog posts and Instagram pictures about things that people are thankful for. Its certainly a good time to reflect on that, and lately my mind has just been in a million other places with being busy, running a marathon, and traveling. Now that things have […]

Post Race Check-in

It’s Sunday night, just hours after the marathon, and I’m finally sitting on the couch, drinking a beer, and waiting for delivery pizza. Also, avoiding packing for Florida which needs to get done sometime between now and tomorrow afternoon. I’m sort of wishing I took tomorrow off from work. Oh well, how can I complain […]

Meal Planning And Prep Week of 11/16 to 11/22

As you may have noticed from Wednesday’s post, the theme of the week was carbs: mostly potatoes and bananas/plantains. I included a night of pasta just to change things up. Everything was simple (no new meals/foods the week before the race) but some of the baking I did added a little time on in the […]

Final Race Thoughts

As I thought about my posts for this week, I had planned to do a post about “Final Race Thoughts” today. As the week progressed, and suddenly it was Thursday, I realized I didn’t have any profound race thoughts to share. In fact, I feel pretty much the same as I did a week ago […]

Things I Don’t Like About The Cold (TOL 26)

It seems that the cold weather has hit many parts of the country even earlier than usual this year. I can handle it being cold December through February but anything before or after that bothers me. I think 2014 was cold for more than half of the year. Today I am thinking out loud about […]

WIAW: All The Carbs

With the marathon coming up in 4 days (eek!) lately there have been lots of carbs happening around here. But unlike past marathons, I’m no longer stuffing my face with bagels, pasta, and pretzels. I realized that those foods don’t make me feel as good so I’ve switched to other sources of carbs such as potatoes, bananas, […]

I Mustache You Some Questions

Today I’ll be changing things up a bit by answering some survey questions. I was tagged by Michele and I figured this was great week to do this since my mind is sort of distracted by the upcoming marathon!  I just wrote the first things that came to mind, so just go with it:) Four Names […]

The Holidays Begin (MIMM)

I sort of feel like I experienced November and December all at once this weekend. I mean, wasn’t it just Halloween? I think many of us are feeling like the holiday season is approaching way too quickly, but I guess there’s not a whole lot we can do about it! For Rob and I, the […]
