  • never too …

    I’m not going to cry complain about how I walked 2 steps outside my door yesterday to let the dog out to pee and promptly sprained my left knee (yes, now I have a sprain on both sides of my body). Or about how Mark did the exact same thing with his wrist. Or how […]

    As promised, I’m bringing you my weekly fitness rundown on Friday as part of Katie from Talk Less, Say More’s Fitness Friday initiative, and as part of my #operationpantsfit initiative. I’ve been telling Katie that I would participate “next week” for the last several weeks. Partially this was due to my ankle injury, but really, […]

  • I’m ba-aaack.

    Maybe. Just maybe I’m back. And I can thank my fabulous former roommate for running a marathon last month — 20 minutes faster than she anticipated even! What am I talking about? For those of you who’ve forgotten, I used to love running — in fact, that was the ENTIRE purpose for this blog in the […]

  • back in the (running) game

    oooh I’m sooo excited!  I had a fabulous run yesterday and I procrastinated enough to make it outside *just* as the sun finally poked out of the clouds. I ran for 35 minutes, sticking with my plan of increasing my time by 5 minutes a week until I get up to a respectable distance (ie. […]
