Daily Affirmations

I’m sitting in the Oakland Airport waiting for our flight to Portland. I got a horrible night’s sleep last night because I couldn’t stop thinking about the race! This is the first time (granted, I’ve only ran 3 races) that I’ve felt nervous for a race. It’s pretty clear that that’s because this is also […]

The Final Countdown…

Okay, so “The Final Countdown” always reminds me of Gob (pronounced Jobe haha) on Arrested Development…probably my favorite character.



Anyway, the race is in 4 days! I think it actually hit me last night laying bed (of course, what a convenient time). I started to realize that this Sunday I was going […]

Panko Crusted Apricot Pork Chops

I bought a box of Panko, which are Japanese bread crumbs, a while back assuming we might need some delicious bread crumbs one of these days. Panko tends to be lighter than standard bread crumbs, but still provides a nice crispiness to food. I sort of rediscovered our box of Panko bread crumbs last night […]

High Intensity Circuit Training

I got through my final long run before the marathon. It was an 8 miler, so nothing too crazy, but it was still tough to get through. I had another late morning (by late, I mean 9) so by the time I got outside to run, it was pretty toasty. The humidity here yesterday was […]

Funny Friday

Happy Good Friday everyone! I’m pretty excited for the weekend mostly because it’s one step closer to this next week! Next week is going to be a BIG week for us. It’s my last day of work (I’m really broken up about that…not! <— yeah, I’ve decided to bring that back), we’re moving all of […]

Home Workout

Yesterday I completed my 3 mile run for the week. I love the training in the next week. The mileage is so low, it’s great! It actually seems doable! All I have left this week is 8 miles (which actually sounds annoying…I know it shouldn’t after 20 miles!), and 4 miles. Today, I might do […]

Pumpkin Black Bean Enchiladas

I realize this sounds a little funky….but I promise, it works! I’ve never been an enchilada person, but for some reason in the past few months, I’ve grown to love them. I’ve made them a couple times and ordered them at restaurants, I guess I’ve discovered enchiladas a little late in life? I made this […]

Marathon Training: Week 17

The race is so close now! I am really looking forward to it…mostly so I can stop training :). As much as I love running, I’m definitely ready for a break. I’d like to get back to the gym and start taking classes again. I’m missing the variety in my workouts. The past few months […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Okay, so remember a few weeks ago when I said I was going to eat less carbs? Well, what I meant was, exactly that. But unfortunately I have zero self control and am pretty sure if someone asked me what my favorite food was, I’d say, “bread.” So, as you might imagine, when I checked […]

My Goodies

Whatever sport you’re into, there are always accessories that can make the experience better. My husband’s pretty into surfing for example (been hard here in Dallas), and I remember him always wanting to check out accessories for his surfboard ranging from high to low end. The same goes for any sport including running. I try […]
