Washington D.C. {travel}

**This post was a year in the making. Apparently I started it then didn’t publish it. So, here it is July 2019. Our trip was actually April 2018.   We recently took a family trip to Washington D.C. to attend our niece’s wedding. John and I hadn’t visited there since we were kids so we made […]

Our stay at the Valentin Imperial Maya {travel}

My husband and I love the Riviera Maya, (the area south of Cancun). We go any chance we can. There are lots of towns south of Cancun, sometimes referred to as Playa or Playa del Carmen as well. Our most recent trip was to the Valentin Imperial Maya. It’s an all inclusive resort so basically […]

Our low-carb life

I’ve touched a little bit on John and I eating low carb. Some people think we are crazy but it also surprises me how many people are eating this way and I just didn’t know. Besides the weight loss, we sleep better (he says I don’t snore), feel better, and no, I don’t have the […]

What’s new?

The date is May 16, 2017. I honestly can’t believe it’s been this long since I’ve written anything. So much has happened in the last few years. Good, bad and everything in between. I have so much to say, but where do I start? Injury, oh yeah, that. I started running in late 2011 and […]

Weekly run-down

I made a decision a while back to work on getting my pace down. I’ve been comfy at 9:30 for a while, it’s really become my easy pace. My body automatically goes there. So, I’ve been trying to break that since I want to break a 1:45 half this year. It may just be my […]

Weekly run-down

The last week was a blur, I’m not even sure I remember everything. Let’s start with the easy stuff: training. Recent posts you might have missed: Rock n’ Roll Dallas half recap The perfect time to train for a marathon Training last week: Sunday: RnR Half Marathon Monday: Rest Tuesday: Track, 12×400, 200 recovery, 7 […]

Weekly run-down

Last week was busy! Ally started middle school track. They only have 4 meets. The first one got snowed out and the second one almost got rained out. The field events did get cancelled. This week is the district qualifier, I’m not sure how that works since there haven’t been any field events so far. […]

Marathon Monday: training update

It’s just under 2 weeks until Rock N’ Roll New Orleans full marathon! A lot has happened in the last few weeks after Dallas. I finished Dallas not wanting to run New Orleans. I know that’s crazy to decide at mile 26 never to run another full again. But, oh well. So, here I am […]

The move!

To say this summer has been crazy is an understatement. We decided in late May to put our house on the market. It took about a month to get it ready. The dining room needed new floors and half the house needed to be packed up to stage it. We had way too much furniture […]

Weekly re-cap

Another week closer to summer! I’m sorry I’m counting down the days. So ready for 6th grade to be done. Ready to not have so much in our schedule. (is that even possible?) Ally had 2 games this week and she pitched her first whole game. I couldn’t be prouder! This week was also her […]
