It's been in the 90's for well over a week here in lovely Pittsburgh. I don't mind the summer really, but I do mind extremes. I mentioned in my previous blog about the migraines I get, they are definitely multiplied in this weather. Even so, I w... Read more
Firecracker 5K
Friday, July 06, 2012      1 comments

I ran in my 3rd 5K on Wednesday. Kind of disappointed with the "official" results because I'm not sure they properly tracked my start time. Results state 38:13 which I'm sure that's when I crossed the finish line after at least a 2 min lag at th... Read more

2012 hasn't been going exactly how I planned, but I wouldn't call it a total fail. At the end of January I had LASIK vision correction, pretty awesome. I went from only being able to read up close without wearing glasses/contacts to being able t... Read more

I just need 1 meal to sabatoge everything. This started last Tuesday, work provided lunch. I had a plan and semi stuck to it but definitely over ate. Thursday we had "dessert day" at work which is really just food day. It started at 10 and by 10... Read more

Running Group is Over, Race is on Sunday...what's next?!
Tuesday, September 20, 2011      2 comments

Last night was our last group run for 5K training, even in a downpour we had an awesome run! I still hate it (lol) and it takes about 30 minutes to start feeling really comfortable, but the feeling at the end makes it all worth it for sure. Ra... Read more

March = Fail

I'm not really sure what's been going on with me lately. February ended so well; I had over 1000 fitness minutes, I was tracking and planning most of my meals, I was starting to firm up, clothes were fitting nicer, etc. Then it all fell apart.... Read more
