6 Miles and Sauvignon Blanc.

You know race day is quickly approaching when the the mileage ramps up considerably on the training plan. Today called for 6 miles and it could have been really easy for me to skip these miles. However,  I met up with a running friend, who was running her long (and I mean loooong as in…

Fundraising, Training and lots of Rosé.

Thanks to some very generous neighbors of mine, whom I've only "met" through the app NextDoor, I raised upwards of $100 in bottle and can returns towards my fundraising. I had to make multiple trips into the store, there were too many cans and bottles for just one cart! And when the machine malfunctioned and…

10K and Sparkling Rosé.

Run for the Hills is the first race I signed up for when I began running in 2014. I had no idea what to expect from a race and was very nervous and unsure that morning as I arrived and saw runners of all kinds congregating at the starting line. I ran the 5K that…

6 miles and Ruby Red Rosé.

This Saturday I was on my own for the week's long run, so I decided to listen to a podcast instead my usual playlist of music. I've just started listening to podcasts at work and couldn't help but think how they'd help pass the time on a solo run. Let me just say, what a…

I’ve been saving loose change and bottle returns since the start of the season and finally took an inventory of what I have so far. Surprisingly, I…

7 miles and Rosé.

I got up with my alarm at 6:17 AM on Saturday morning. I know what you are thinking, that’s really early for the weekend, but when you’re a runner, early morning long runs just come standard with the training season. Since I’ve been injured after my last half marathon in April, I haven’t been able…

Gone Running.

If you are reading this blog, you’re either a very nice friend or a really bored stranger. Either way, thank you for taking some of your valuable time to read my first post. I started this blog on a whim the other day to understand basic website setup on the WordPress platform and in the process…
