Thoooose Days

Do you ever have those days?  The ones where your body and life feel like oatmeal, thick, hard to move, unchangeable, and usually rather boring?  Or those days where anything and everything is wrong, nothing is how you felt your life was going to pan out, being an adult is hard, and all you want … Continue reading Thoooose Days

Weekend Recap!

Recap on a Tuesday?  Yep, its happening!  I feel like life has gotten crazy over the last week or so and I just don't have enough hours in the day for everything.  It can be stressful, but sometimes all you need to do is take some time out to smell the roses, and life looks … Continue reading Weekend Recap!

Rewind and Refocus

Hmmmm...  Set backs suck, but you know what?  That's a part of life.  This may be the horse show girl in me talking, but I almost appreciate being set back a little bit, even if its a minor injury, because you learn something about yourself and how your body works (or your horses' lol).  Why … Continue reading Rewind and Refocus

Where has the time gone?

I can't believe that we are already so far through July! I only have 4 more weeks until my first race, and I am so excited. I feel so much stronger and fitter right now, I'm still working on getting a bit faster, but I know that is not going to happen overnight.  This week … Continue reading Where has the time gone?

Honk If you… Actually, No, Please Don’t Honk

Does this ever happen to you all? You are walking or running outside along the road and some random person who you don't know decides to honk as they drive by? This happens to me aaaallllll the time. I must say that I find it incredibly rude, here I am exercising, bettering myself, whether I'm … Continue reading Honk If you… Actually, No, Please Don’t Honk

On Wednesdays We Workout!

Its been a long week! I successfully finished my 2nd week of training with 4mi on the 4th. Friday's run was a little rough though, the miles came quick but mentally I was just not in the game. Do you guys ever have those days? I was so glad to get off the treadmill and … Continue reading On Wednesdays We Workout!

Really? You Actually LIKE Running?

I read this article on runner's world a week or so ago, and it was about why people run.  Why do marathoners, after going through that pain and struggle, keep doing it?  Why keep torturing yourself? They compared marathoners to women giving birth, no matter how much pain you are in during it, at the end … Continue reading Really? You Actually LIKE Running?

Overnight Oats, Yes Please!

I have always loved oatmeal ever since I was a child.  I was so happy when it finally started to cool back down, became fall and winter, because then I knew that my parents would start buying oatmeal again!  Of course, back in the day it was just Quaker Instant Oatmeal, but I loved it, … Continue reading Overnight Oats, Yes Please!
