So Yesterday I received an email with the subject “Mid-Year Fitness Report for 2013”. Even though I already knew exactly how many miles I have ran/walked so far this year it was nice to see a small reminder that the year was half over and how close I am to my goal of 500 miles… Continue reading Mid-Year Fitness Report
So I along with tons and tons of other women (and maybe men) have downloaded the “what to expect when you are expecting” app for my phone. It gives little tid bits each day and gives a week overview of what is going on with you and the baby. It also compares your baby to… Continue reading Maybe you can believe all you read…
I cannot believe I have slacked so much that I have not posted anything in a month! Guess that is the life of a full time, working mom. Here is an update of what has been going on: Work: today marked finishing my fifth year of teaching! I must say its been a whirlwind of… Continue reading It’s been a while….
Since finishing the Nike Women’s half I have not planned to run any more race while pregnant. This has dramatically effected the amount of miles I have been logging.

We had a… Continue reading Check It Off The List!
Back is packed, playlist is made, cupcake order is in. Bring it on!
So I recently came across a great article by Jeff Gaudette called, If you run slow, who cares and it really was the inspiration I was looking for to get me through Sunday’s half. I already said in my last post that I was aiming for 3:30- To me this time is slow, but really, who does care?… Continue reading Who Does Care?
In exactly one week from today I am hoping to be meeting up with my sister somewhere in the hundreds of people that participated in the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. We will be walking slowly back to our hotel to finish off another Georgetown Cupcake to celebrate finishing the race with our… Continue reading One Week From Today…
I had a slight interruption when I was about to finish 2 miles but I stayed determined and pushed out 3.1 miles to meet my goal of 5! Take that glucose test, mood-ruining Monday!
