I have this small issue in which I like too many things. Before you assume that this is yet another story of a girl who flits from passion to passion on an almost daily basis without every sticking to anything, allow me to put your mind at ease (and send my own anxiety flying off the rails). I don’t actually give up any of the things I decide I like.
I needed a vacation. I mean... I REALLY needed a vacation. I needed to get out from under the fluorescent lighting of my office, get on a plane, eat a bunch of food that was maybe not so good for me, and have an honest-to-God disconnect from real life. Hence Disney World. It was delightful … Continue reading On Disney World, Star Wars, and doing your best…
Hi there, happy people. It's been a while. I fell out of touch with my beloved blog over the past few months simply because life has been crazy. Quick update: Yes, I'm still running. (I had an 8:36 minute mile yesterday!!) Yes, Hungry Harvest still rocks my fridge twice a month. Yes, I successfully fulfilled … Continue reading Wow…

Granted, if I can do a 16 mile overnight walk through Philly, I can most certainly handle a 13 mile run … Continue reading My First Half Marathon – BEFORE
Full disclosure: there are no SPOILERS, but there are certainly hints. If you are unfamiliar with the DC comic universe, this may not make much sense... I took a vacation day this past Friday so that I could give Wonder Woman as much of my money as possible. It was 100% worth it. Don't get … Continue reading Wonder Woman and Global Running Day
My body hurts. I ran over ten miles last week, and before I know it, I'll be running ten miles in a day... Remind me why I thought becoming a runner was a swell plan...? Because my swollen, mud splattered ankles make for top notch blog copy. I have found, though, that I am already starting to … Continue reading Ouch
I ran twice last week, and no, I was not being chased by something scary. That's a perfectly reasonable assumption, though, since I kind of hate running. My lovely friend Keebs and I are planning on doing a 5k together this June. If you are unfamiliar with the Color Run, I encourage you to educate … Continue reading Becoming a Runner
