This never-ending winter is really starting to get to me. So much so that I don't want to do anything but eat and sleep. At this point I even dread taking Lucy for her walks because if I'm not slipping and falling on the ice on my own, she's so strong that any amount of … Continue reading Tuesday Tails

New Recipe: Southwestern Quinoa and Black Bean Casserole, and I made my Running Goal!
Before I get to the recipe, I wanted to share that I made my running goal for the month! 100.56 miles to be exact. I ran twice yesterday so I wouldn't have such a long run today.

Shoe Success, and Snowmageddon
You guys!! My shoe search is over! The Fastwitch's came today and after trying them on I immediately took them for a test run.

I take it nice and easy while watching (Doctor Who) Netflix :) And Lucy … Continue reading Sunday Runday
Caution: Dog Can’t Hold Her Licker
What weighs 90 pounds (of peanut butter) and has a 3-foot long tongue? Ok, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but she really does have the longest tongue I've ever seen! Anyone (human or animal) that gets within range of that tongue, will feel the wrath of Lucy's kiss attacks! As you can see, … Continue reading Caution: Dog Can’t Hold Her Licker

Perhaps it's time for an intervention? ;) In all seriousness … Continue reading Oops, I did it again!
