A #chewsday in my tummy

Funny story, I found myself in a group of ladies who are keeping each other accountable for healthy eating. Thanks, Lisa. So here’s my slightly delayed #Chewsday reflection. I feel like if I help keep other people accountable, that means I can go home and have fries and feel less guilty because I helped other … Continue reading

Buying Points

I was raised by people who were convinced that vacation clubs were basically giant ponzi schemes and I personally have enough commitment issues (and financial issues) that joining the Disney Vacation Club never really seemed like a good idea to me. Though I think we all know that you’re officially a mature adult when the … Continue reading

Trends in Running Advice

Have you ever noticed that in a given month there are about 5 different places you’ll read the same kind of running related advice? The running advice trend I noticed this month is that we should all shower with our running clothes one. Apparently, it saves you money on your laundry bill and it makes … Continue reading

You can Shang me anytime

You can Shang me anytime

I recently related to you that Prince Eric is Disney’s dumbest Prince and that generally speaking the Disney Princes are an interesting group of guys. Today, we’re traveling to China for a Disney movie that everyone knows is amazing but no one knows what the fuck to do with it because: The main character is … Continue reading

Seize the good weather: Marathon Training Week 2

It doesn’t feel like a wretched inferno outside!!! It’s a miracle! Here I was, walking around thinking how great the weather was and some people were here from San Francisco and they immediately started saying how disgusting it was and I said, “wait? What? no, no, no, it’s gotten better! This is great!” Anyway, from … Continue reading

Pee Drinking Crap Face

We’re getting ready for a rowing scrimmage in two weeks against another group, so naturally I was under the impression that we were going to do the most important thing in any sporting endeavor: talk shit. I can’t do this in running because to be honest I’m not a good runner and I’m not particularly … Continue reading

I’m weak of will, I know it.

I’m weak of will, I know it.

I signed up for the Princess 1/2 Marathon. I know, I said women’s races weren’t my thing and I hate wearing tutus and this is the one race I was always all, “I’m never going to run that because, bo-ring.” So I signed up for the Glass Slipper Challenge. And the 5k. I did this … Continue reading

Okay, I’ll run it

I never wanted to run the Princess 1/2 marathon. I always said it was the one I never wanted to do because I’m not big on women’s races or tutus or princesses. So naturally when someone somewhere on the internet said the theme this year would be Frozen, I decided I’m doing the Glass Slipper … Continue reading

I’ll run it, I’ll run it not

I’m emotionally torn right now between registering for the Princess Half Marathon and not registering. The thing that gets me is I keep thinking maybe the 5k or 10k will be Frozen themed. Plus my parents plan on spending the winter down in Florida again this year and for some reason I think this makes … Continue reading

On the Sunny Side of the Street

On the Sunny Side of the Street

I love summer. It’s seersucker season in DC. Summer in DC really fulfills my constant desire to just be enveloped in a hot, wet blanket made of itchy material that I can never get away from. Even when I’m indoors, I find it so refreshing that I’m constantly feeling a film of moisture everywhere and … Continue reading
