The Fire has been Extinguished
Wednesday, October 05, 2011      8 comments

Poof. Just like that, the fire that fueled my HM this past Saturday was non-existent today. I went for my first post-race run, and it was hard. It's amazing how great you can feel one day, and how absolutely miserable you can feel another. ... Read more
Outstanding October Challenge Goals
Monday, October 03, 2011      8 comments

October started out with my best foot forward, running my first post-baby HM. What an amazing experience it was (read my previous blog if you'd like to know more). After a couple of down days, it's time to kick things back into gear. My... Read more

It’s amazing what the right song streaming over your headset at the right time can do to one’s performance. Yesterday I ran my first post-baby half marathon. It was the most challenging course I’ve EVER run. The weather conditions were th... Read more
Sensational September
Friday, September 30, 2011      5 comments

Sensational September seemed to be anything but that. I felt like I was in a rut the majority of the month. Don’t get me wrong, I had some really great days, but there seemed to be more that weren’t so much. I pushed on and kept going with my... Read more
A Few Highlights from the Funniest (and Scariest) Pre-Race Email I've Ever Received
Tuesday, September 27, 2011      7 comments

I just received my pre-race email from this weekend's upcoming half marathon, my first post-baby HM. I laughed out loud, even at the parts that made me want to cry and rethink my registration. I suppose it pays to have a sense of humor if you ... Read more
Sensational September - Week 3
Saturday, September 24, 2011      4 comments

Well, another week has passed. Week 3 was very similar to week 2. Deadlines at work preoccupied my mind most of the week. I kept up with my running, focusing on shorter distances now that I am tapering to race day. I had 2 runs that felt ama... Read more

Today was another perfect day. The sun was shining and the temperature hovered around the low 60's ALL DAY LONG! LOVE it! Having the day off, I decided I was going to make the most of the weather by going everywhere I needed to go on foot. ... Read more
Tomorrow, it Begins Again...

Tracking every bite, that is. I didn't track a thing this weekend, except for the freggies I ate today, and I only did that because it is part of this week's M2W challenge and the Beautiful Broccoli need points!!! This was a weekend of pic... Read more
Sensational September - Week 2
Friday, September 16, 2011      2 comments

Wow. This week didn't really go as planned. This is the month of crazy deadlines at work, and it's taking a toll on my running schedule. Working late hours and not being able to run in the evenings, I made an attempt an an early morning run, ... Read more
Just in Time
Thursday, September 15, 2011      7 comments

Just in time for tomorrow's 10 mile run, not one, but two, cold fronts moved through the area today. Sure they set off some crazy storms last night (AH-mazing lightning!!), as well as several showers throughout the day today, but I don't care o... Read more

Now we need to buy new curtains. Hilarity consumed our living room this evening. We recently purchased 'Just Dance Summer Dance Party' for our Wii. I have never laughed so hard and sweat so much at the same time in my entire life! It was... Read more
Killer Buns and Thighs
Monday, September 12, 2011      5 comments

Today I did Level 1 of Jillian Michaels' new workout DVD, "Killer Buns and Thighs". It did not disappoint, but then again, Jillian never does. It is similar to her 30-day Shred in that it is circuits, circuits, circuits. There, of course, is ... Read more
Sensational September - Week 1
Saturday, September 10, 2011      3 comments

This week just kinda was. Tropical Storm Lee hung over the area for the majority of the week, causing catastrophic flooding in our area. Homes and lives were lost, but we managed unscathed, just a little water in the basement. The rain ... Read more

According to the training program that I am following for my October 1st HM, I am to run 10 miles this weekend. Having a 3 hour break while Gabe was at preschool this morning, I opted to attempt to get it out of the way before the weekend. Unf... Read more
Rain, Rain
Wednesday, September 07, 2011      3 comments

Go away and come again another day! Like when I'm not training for a half marathon. You are really messing with my schedule. Yes, in an ideal world, I could go to the gym and hop on the dreadmill, but I have a baby in my world. My training d... Read more
