Vanilla Rhubarb Jam (Foodie Friday #2)

I love food, pretty much all kinds.  I also love to make food, all kinds.  Today I want to share with you guys a recipe I found and tweaked to make an AWESOME jam.  Jam is actually pretty easy to make and is way better than what you can buy in stores. Vanilla Rhubarb Jam…

Dogs will be Dogs

Another day visiting hotel partners means I got to “sleep in” again for this run.  Sleep in means 6:30am but thats way better than 5am.  I was really tired today for some reason and once I started running I realized why…super tired muscles from this week’s workouts.  My legs arent really sore, just tired and…

So That Happened

I have been running with a GPS run tracker water for about 2 years now.  Today was the day it happened.  I forgot to re-start my watch after I stopped for the dogs to go potty.  Half of my run was missed 😦  I was super pissed, but luckily I also use the Charity Miles…

Cross-Training

I thought I would take a second today and let you know what I do when Im not running to stay in shape.  I am really lucky to have my gym (Health Club at Travis Place) 3 blocks from the office so I can workout on my lunch breaks. Monday is a tabata class.  Tabata…

Up Before the Sun

Another Saturday another pre 6am wake-up call.  After the last track session I decided to get out a little earlier and get in as many laps as i could before the sun came up above the trees.  Today was 10 sets of 800’s at a little faster than race pace.  My goal today was to…

Butterbeer and Butterbeer Cookies (Foodie Friday)

We interrupt these running posts to bring you FOOD!  Or more specifically butterbeer cookies and butterbeer!!!!!  Its Harry Potter weekend on ABC Family so it seemed only fitting.  These recipes are in no way healthy, gluten free, sugar free or anything like they.  Just good old-fashioned delicious food that makes me happy. Rather than copying…

On the Road Again

Another Thursday another run day.  I am around Houston taking photos today so I didnt have to get up before the sun!  Its the little things people 🙂 I hate to say this but I am really struggling getting used to these Hokas.  I have worn them on 4 runs now and am not loving…

What I Wore Wednesday

Its a twofer Wednesday!!  Since my training recap didnt get done until today its double the posts!! My life isnt all running, sometimes I do things like go to work 🙂  Today I have a meeting with the Houston CVB and wanted to look a little nicer.  The great thing about my job is if…

Slow and Stead

Tuesday felt like a tortoise run to me.  My legs are still super tired from the 11 mile run and running in new shoes 😦  Its ok though, the first step is getting up and getting out and I did that!  I would have run longer but remember the post about listen to your dog…yeah…

Getting it Done!

How was your weekend?  Mine was pretty busy hanging out with friends, oh and you know, running 11 miles.  No big 🙂 Saturday was a mileage builder so the goal was to do 11 miles.  I finished just shy at 10.25 miles.  My feet were done, I think the rest of me could have kept…

Rise and Shine!

Note to self…dont wear a cheap target sports bra on runs anymore.   Boy it was humid today, sweat pouring off of me and the sun wasnt even out!  Im getting ahead of myself 😉  Im awake I swear Step one, get out of bed.  Step two, put your running clothes on.  Step three, get…
