All proceeds are being donated to SASHA Farm- a farm animal sanctuary that offers a safe haven to animals in need of affection, social interaction, food, shelter, and lots of love! While I actually won … Continue reading 2014 Virtual Race for the Animals (Half Marathon #10)
Yeah yeah, I'm a terrible blogger, but this time I have a legitimate excuse ;) I was completely derailed with a 3-week bout of walking pneumonia AND an upper respiratory infection. I'm still not back to 100% but today was the first time I woke up almost un-congested! So of course I had to take … Continue reading 3- week unexpected hiatus, sorry!

Today I did a slow and easy 5k (3.11 miles) at lunch, then came home and made another batch of the Tahini Lime … Continue reading Earned my Resolution Run medal!
Last night I ran 8.6 miles as part of my Resolution Run and will get in the other 4.5 in about an hour - I registered for a (virtual) half marathon and already have the medal, so I have to finish earning it! I wasn't planning on splitting it between 2 runs, but my tummy … Continue reading Happy New Year!
