Weekly Dinner: Kitchen Sink Hash

So as I’ve mentioned before, T and I like to make our weeknight dinners on Sunday afternoon, so we don’t have to worry/waste time making something for dinner every night.  This week we decided on a hash.  Hashes are wallet and (can be if you make it) waistline friendly.  Since I’m about to start working … Continue reading

Spaghetti Squash

I never thought I would find a decent replacement for pasta….enter: Spaghetti Squash.  I had it for the first time on Friday night and again tonight for dinner. It’s super easy to prepare too, the most difficult thing about it is cutting the damn thing open! Start with a whole squash, I think this is … Continue reading

Six Miles

Today was supposed to be a 10-mile day.  It didn’t happen, but 6 miles did.  I’m recovering from a mild bronchitis (and I have asthma) and still having some allergy issues…not the fastest time and there were a couple of walk breaks so I could catch my breath but I did it!  Definitely feeling like … Continue reading

What I Ate Wednesday

{i’ve been quiet over the past week because finals are coming up and it’s been a non-stop study session} Yesterday was the very first of many training runs for Mount Desert Island (MDI) in October.  The original plan started in June, but I’m just getting a head start since this spring has been slow going … Continue reading

What I Ate Wednesday

So, I have decided to jump on the blog bandwagon and do a weekly What I Ate Wednesday post.  It actually works out for me and posting my meals, because I usually eat the same thing Monday through Friday…so it spares the readers of this little blog daily pictures of the same thing five days … Continue reading

A Post of Few Words

My thoughts and condolences are with those in Boston today.  What a horrible thing to have happened at an event where runners train and work hard for for months, and where family, friends, and complete strangers come to show their support.  My heart goes out to you all.

Four Months

Four months from today, I turn 30. Source I’m actually excited for my 30s, but my main goal of 2013 was to be in shape by the time I turn 30.  I have four months to get my ass in gear and shape up. Currently, I weigh: 153 lbs. I do have a goal weight, … Continue reading

Running Survey

Happy Monday!  I saw this running survey last week over at Carrots n Cake and thought it would be a fun way to start the week. Best Run Ever 2012 Shamrock Half Marathon—the first race where I actually felt confident as runner and as a bonus:  my current half marathon PR 1:54:27! Three Words that … Continue reading

Apple Crumble

T has had a craving for apple crisp since sometime 2 weeks ago when he listened to a podcast that featured apples.  So I made up a very basic crumble recipe and baked it last night.  The apartment smelled like autumn! Recipe About 5-6 apples–I used Granny Smith, Braeburn, and Pink Lady apples, peeled and … Continue reading

Trigger Point Cold Roller Review

Good afternoon! Today was the first day of my half marathon training plan (I’m making it up as I go): 6 glorious miles-completed!  Everything felt good.  Just very very minimal IT band soreness between miles 5 and 6, but nothing that made me want to just stop. After the run, and after taking my car … Continue reading
