Hump Day

I have never need to celebrate hump day so much in my life. [Well, that is probably not true, but it feels that way right now] I’m so glad that I am over half way done with this work week 😀 Today was much of the same, but overall the mood at work was better.…… Continue reading Hump Day

Some days…

… you just come home feeling defeated. Today was one of those days for me. It was only Tuesday and I felt like I had worked a whole week, and I felt like a miserable failure when it come to a work and personal life balance. I could have worked for a couple of more…… Continue reading Some days…

Where did the day go?

I left the house a little after six o’clock this morning, I got home at 7:30 and finally sat down to dinner at 8 o’clock tonight. I have no idea where my day went, and I am exhausted. But it feels good, I guess. I feel like I accomplished a lot. I got to work…… Continue reading Where did the day go?

A few days in Burlington, VT

Hi there – I am just back from a trip to Burlington, Vermont. I have to tell you – I love Vermont, and especially Burlington. I spent most of my time at a conference this week, but I still had a little bit of time to re-explore the city after the conference concluded each day.…… Continue reading A few days in Burlington, VT

Breakfast · Running


I always tell myself that recovery and comebacks have to start somewhere. I guess my road back into serious training started on Friday night. On my way home from work, I stopped by Dunkin’ Donuts and ordered a small coffee with milk and no sugar, in hopes that the caffeine would help me get to…… Continue reading Somewhere
