The Land Of The Laid Back

For one full week, I was the most relaxed I’ve been in as long as I can remember. For seven entire days, I abstained from the internet. No email. No Facebook. No Twitter. Definitely no blog reading. In fact, for seven days, I forgot I even have a blog. During those seven days, I put […]

Thankful Things Thursday: It’s Been A While

Somewhere in between the madness of traveling, working and more working, I’ve seriously neglected the Thankful Things Thursday tradition. But the “holiday” lives on! And today I’m back with plenty of things to be grateful for. So without any pithy stories, let’s get on with it. I’m thankful this marathon taper isn’t making me crazy. […]

This weekend was good to me. In case you missed any of it: I ate an awesome meal and saw The Nutcracker on Friday. I went for a long run and saw an inflatable Snoopy on Saturday. I also visited with some hometown friends and checked out the tree at Rockefeller Center. I slept in […]

So I’ll start at the beginning to fill y’all in. (Y’all? That was weird.) Note: I was so honored to get […]

Opening night always falls in early November, so it gets me into […]

Bummer

Sad face. So I wasn’t lucky enough to be one of the first 50 people to get into the 2011 NYC Marathon. There will be another lottery drawing in April, which of course feels decades away! Until then I’ll obviously keep running as I have been (7 miles this morning—love that it’s light out again!). […]
