The last few weeks have been a little bit of an emotional roller coaster.
Some good stuff: hearing news about awesome people moving to CO, my dad and Joey the dog coming to visit for a few days, my high school BF Lauren coming to visit, a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert, and going [...]
I learned a valuable lesson this weekend. Corporate America should change over to four day work weeks (with a three day weekend). After taking Friday off, I came to work this morning feeling rested, happy and revitalized. I have Friday off again this week, which makes me positively giddy.
With a three day weekend [...]
This weekend included:
Exercise Biking around town Drinking with friends Cleaning FUN running
A while back, I signed up for the Davita Kidney Rock 5K through Schwaggle for only $17. I was out for drinks with Alex on Friday night when we discovered we were both running it. I was not excited about the 6:30 [...]
I had some blog posts written, never got around to posting them and now they are completely out of date. Like many of you, I work a 9-5 sitting at a computer and it’s hard for me to motivate myself to get on the computer when I get home. (I also can no longer read [...]
It probably isn’t much of a shock that there are lots of active people in Colorado. The weather and mountains simply draw these kinds of people. This weekend was a good example of how active friends got my butt moving.
I’ve been reading Lauren’s blog for a while since she is a DC-area blogger. So [...]
I had a really good visit in DC. I have to admit though, after 9 days I was ready to get back to my dog, my own house, and humidity-free-mosquito-free living.
I was back in DC because my friend Lauren got married on July 14th. Lauren isn’t any old friend. We’ve been best friends since [...]
You all know I’m happy here in Denver. That doesn’t mean the move didn’t come without any pain.
I grew up in the suburbs of DC, went to college in upstate New York, and then lived in DC for 5.5 years. I recently realized that this is the longest I’ve ever been away from [...]
I’ve been quite the Debbie Downer around here lately. I want to assure everyone reading this that I’m not devastated by a bad race because running is not the most important thing in my life. Right now I’m dealing with some considerable IT band issues that have completely thrown a wrench into my training plan [...]
I haven’t had much motivation to blog lately. I’m not sure what it is, since this marathon training cycle isn’t more or less exciting than the other ones. I guess I’m a little bored of writing about running. I also don’t have as much time to read other blogs because of my new job, [...]
I finally have a marathon training plan! Can you sense my excitement?? Clearly, I’m a girl that needs some direction in my life.
My coach at Runner’s Edge sent a training plan for my goal race (The Colfax Marathon) with 5 different training levels. They differ by goals and by experience, from wanting to [...]
