Hot, Hot, HOT

Oh yes.  I’m feeling Hot, Hot, HOT! Man, oh man, today’s run was crazy hot.  Nice and sweaty.  Elbow sweat was just the tip of the iceberg.  Ugh.  I don’t know how people in the South are dealing with the weather!  In reality, if I was headed to the beach, I’d be in Heaven.  Running … Continue reading

Put Some Pep In Yo’ Step

Oh boy, do I have a fun app to share with you all!  My friend, Sita, showed me about Pepper Plate when we were visiting her in New York in June.  She had me hooked within a few minutes!  It’s basically an online cookbook, where you can edit, delete and add new recipes (including photos).  … Continue reading

It’s the Pits!

Literally. I’m having deodorant issues.  Not so much stank (aka – smelly) ones, but more “my-deodorant-promises-to-go-on-clear-but-leaves-white-marks-on-my-clothes” issues.  Ladies (and maybe some men), know what I’m saying? I went searching online to try and see if I could find some inspiration.  I’ve always (past ten years or so) been a Dove girl… but I’ve been really sick … Continue reading

The Expo Runners were able to pick … Continue reading

Game Plan

The countdown has officially started.  This is my last week before the Big Day!  I spent this week trying to find ways to heal my knees, finalize the “day-of” plans and find a good running outfit for next Sunday.  Impressive stuff, I know. The Clothes I used Zappos to try on a gazillion tanks, shirts, … Continue reading

BIG NEWS: I hit DOUBLE DIGITS with my training run this past weekend!  Hott d@mn! It was pretty much a great day all around on Saturday!  Between the Derby and Cinco de Mayo, lots of fun was had by all! After my morning run, The Husband, some friends and I headed out to place our … Continue reading
