Race Day

Race day arrived bright and early this morning. My friend Chris and I had decided to meet up at my house around 6AM – quite early for a Saturday morning. But I had gotten all of my stuff gathered the night before, so I was in good shape this morning when my alarm went off…… Continue reading Race Day

The Secret Is Out… sort of

Well bloggies – happy Friday. TGIF indeed. As of last night a secret I’ve been keeping pretty well is now out to most of my friends, so I figured I would share it would you readers, too. Tomorrow morning I am running my first post-surgery race. I would not say that I am looking forward…… Continue reading The Secret Is Out… sort of

Morning Run Routine..?

Due to my work schedule, I am not that much of a morning runner. I tend to leave the house by 6:15 to get to work on the days that I drive and I leave by 6:30 on the days that I take the train. I am not a morning person, so I can’t really…… Continue reading Morning Run Routine..?

Mixing it up…

Hello blog world! How is your week going so far? I cannot believe it is Tuesday night already and this is my first post of the week. Crazy. I have switched up my eating habits a bit this week – not by choice really, but by lack of going to the grocery store! I usually…… Continue reading Mixing it up…


Oats in a Jar

I finally did something more productive than making coffee today – about two hours after waking up I finally made breakfast. Today’s breakfast was amazing, oats in an almond butter jar! 🙂 So, if you read food blogs, you might have heard about oats in a jar. But if you haven’t here is the deal.…… Continue reading Oats in a Jar


Coffee Ferry

On this lovely rainy Saturday morning I was my own coffee ferry 🙂 I woke up at ten o’clock after the best night’s sleep I have had in quite some time. I went downstairs, made a glass of Emergen-C (mixed with water) and started the morning coffee. Once there was enough in the pot, I…… Continue reading Coffee Ferry


Veggie and Turkey Tomato Sauce

I have a new go to dinner! Last night when I was starving this dinner really saved me and it was so simple! As a brief recap – I quickly sliced up a small onion, three mushrooms, and heating up some frozen broccoli, I browned a bit of ground turkey (the package was 3/4 and…… Continue reading Veggie and Turkey Tomato Sauce

A Second Breakfast…

I am happy to report that adding a ‘second’ breakfast in to my day really helped me out today! I left work today a little bit after four o’clock and I was not nearly as hungry as I was yesterday. I might start more of my early mornings with a piece of whole wheat toast…… Continue reading A Second Breakfast…


Making time and Changing things up

Ugh, it was hard for me to get out of bed this morning. But somehow I managed. Last night after my dreadful workout, I decided that today was not going to be a gym going day for me. I have to stick to this decision, but somehow I doubt that will be a problem. Because…… Continue reading Making time and Changing things up


Omega for thought…

After reading a couple of articles on Omega 3 fatty acids, I am going to be picking up some supplements at some point today or tomorrow. I fear my runner’s knee is trying to return, and I am wondering if adding more omega 3 fatty acids into my diet might help prevent the injury from…… Continue reading Omega for thought…
