Encouraged to have a good day…

Saturday started out with some much needed encouragement. Brilliantly, on Friday night my friend Ned told me to call him when my alarm went off on Saturday morning. My alarm was going off at 6:30 in the morning so that I could get up and get ready to run early in order to beat this…… Continue reading Encouraged to have a good day…

Training & Food

The first unofficial week of half marathon training was a success. Here is a brief recap: Tuesday: over one hour of cardio, 30 minutes of strength training and a couple of wall sits (I’m hoping to avoid runner’s knee this time around and wall sits are supposed to help) Wednesday: half an hour of cardio…… Continue reading Training & Food


Cafe Nuovo

Last night I got together with my friend Mary Alice. We decided to take advantage of the second week of Restaurant Week in Providence and hit up a well known establishment, Cafe Nuovo. I had never been, but my family and friends are always raving about it so I was eager to go. Mary Alice…… Continue reading Cafe Nuovo

Ok, so I do realize that I have been away from the blog for a long time – over a week.  I guess it is mostly the usual problem that I run into in the summer. It’s hot, I am busy (who knew watering a garden and two lawns could take up so much time!?),…… Continue reading Tuesday



So far this weekend has been so much better than I thought it would be! I had plenty to keep me busy, and I did not mind being on my own. I concentrated on working out, eating good food, and cleaning the house! What a combination. 🙂 Thursday and Friday I went to the gym…… Continue reading Weekend


Sunday Morning…

Last night I set my alarm for 7:30 so that I could get up early, eat something and go for a run. For some reason at 7:30 this morning I decided to give myself a treat – a Sunday morning! I reset the alarm for 8:30 (if I did not set an alarm, I would…… Continue reading Sunday Morning…

Back to work…

Well, the mini-vacation has come to an end and it was back to work today for me. Sort of sad. I have been feeling weird most of the day, not sure what exactly is going on – but it is 11:30 at night and I am fairly wired, and I really need to be sleeping.…… Continue reading Back to work…


The Best Day Off…

Today has really been one of the best days off! Ever since I have been back to work after months off from being so sick, I have not had a day off during the week. I am so happy that I scheduled a mini-vacation for myself over the 4th of July weekend. Instead of having…… Continue reading The Best Day Off…


July 4th – Another 10K

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! I don’t know about you – but the last couple of days have been pretty hot here in the Providence area. Yesterday I went up to Gillette Stadium to pick up my bib number for the Harvard Pilgrim July 4th 10K. I was happy to see that some of the…… Continue reading July 4th – Another 10K
