Another weekend, almost gone. And tomorrow begins the second week of February – the year seems to be going by at warp speed. It’s good to stop and do these weekly reviews to savor what has been going on in my life. First, our house went on the market on Monday. We fell in love… Continue reading Week in review Feb 7
On Saturday, I ran in a 5k race and ran my fastest 5k yet. It was a great run! Yesterday, I was supposed to run 12 miles. It was a hot day yesterday, and I didn’t get out until after 10:00. I could tell as soon as I got through the first couple of miles… Continue reading From a PR to a bad run.
Sometimes I wonder why I love running so much. Yes, it’s helped me lose weight and get in shape. There are other ways to stay in shape, though. After a bad day, a run helps me relax and unwind. But a glass of wine or bubble bath does the same thing. I’ve set running goals… Continue reading The Reminder Run
Today has just been one of those days at work. I feel like a Zen hamster who is staring at all of of these other hamsters running franticly in their wheels. I just want to tell them to stop and breathe, but they’re looking at me like, “Dude, what are you doing? You need to… Continue reading Random thoughts.
I can’t seem to stop thinking about running. In fact, I think I’m a bit obsessed at this point. Is there a support group I can join? Is this just a phase I’m going through? I’ll be honest with you: a couple of weeks before running my first half-marathon, I was starting to fantasize about… Continue reading My name is Tammy and I’m a runaholic.
So the greatly anticipated moment finally arrived this past Saturday night: the season premiere of Doctor Who and the debut of the 12th (or is it 13th? hmmmmm……) Doctor. First, let me say that when Peter Capaldi was announced as the new Doctor, I was fairly disappointed. Part of me had hoped they’d figure out a… Continue reading Review of the new Doctor
I love the feeling on Friday afternoons when the work day has ended and the weekend starts, don’t you? I started out my weekend with a Bob Harper DVD workout. Nothing like spaghetti arms and legs that feel like they’re on fire to start a weekend! Friday night dinners usually mean going out to a… Continue reading Weekend recap
This weekend, I did what I thought was the impossible: I ran 10 miles! I’ve been training for a half-marathon and 10 miles was actually supposed to be my long run last weekend, but because of painful blisters and hot weather, I wasn’t able to do the 10 miles. I set out for my run… Continue reading 10-mile run in the books!
This past weekend I ran the Bix 7, which is a 7-mile race that has been a huge focus and goal with my running over the past year and a half. It was a race that I really, really wanted to be able to accomplish. I guess you could say that it has been my… Continue reading Have I lost my mojo?
The weekend started out with a 3.1 mile run on Friday night after work. On Saturday, my husband and I went for a 4.73 hike at one of our local state parks. This was our first hike of the year, as we’ve either been too busy or it has been too rainy. It was a… Continue reading Active weekend!
