Running, Reading, Ghosts, and Tomatoes

I don't have much for today. It's been non-stop raining/sleeting all day so I stayed in bed until 3pm listening to and finishing that book I started last night - Pines by Blake Crouch. I liked the first half better than the 2nd half, but it was one of those books that I couldn't stop … Continue reading Running, Reading, Ghosts, and Tomatoes

50-Day Run Streak #writeandrun31

I hit a pretty awesome milestone today - 50 days of running in a row! And in these 50 days (started 11/23/14) I've ran 171 miles. That's 3.42 miles per day on average. I'm pretty sure there were only 1 or 2 days in which I only ran 1 mile (one of those being yesterday, … Continue reading 50-Day Run Streak #writeandrun31

New Shoes! #writeandrun31 Day 9

From the 305 (enormous) to the 210 (big), and now the 15 - finally they made one that fits my tiny wrist! And because it also has a step tracker, I'll be able to get rid of my broken Fitbit too ;) Just need to wear it (the Fitbit) one more day to check the accuracy … Continue reading Day 8 #writeandrun31 – My new Garmin came today!

2014 Mileage Total (Day 6 #writeandrun31)

I got an email from DailyMile this morning that had my total mileage for 2014. There were a few months where I was either sick or injured, but overall it was a good year! I think this total also includes walking though, because my 2014 total running mileage was more like 900-something miles. So for … Continue reading 2014 Mileage Total (Day 6 #writeandrun31)

My Running Journal (Day 5 #writeandrun31)

Anyone have a hard time finding the "perfect" running journal? I've been through something like 10-12 different journals/logs and I always end up either not using them at all, or scribbling down a few days worth of entries before deciding that I just don't like it. I do log all my mileage on the computer (in an … Continue reading My Running Journal (Day 5 #writeandrun31)

Meatless Monday – Pueblo Pie (Day 4 #writeandrun31)

That Pueblo Pie I made last night... it was DELICIOUS! I thought about waiting until tomorrow to post this, but since I tend to blog later in the evening Meatless Monday will be almost over. So here you go... Pueblo Pie (Tex-Mex Lasagna) -adapted from a Dr. McDougall recipe Ingredients: Sauce: 1.5 cup veggie broth … Continue reading Meatless Monday – Pueblo Pie (Day 4 #writeandrun31)
