Appetite Suppressants 1

Appetite Suppressants 1

There are few ways to really totally turn me off from eating something I otherwise love: pizza. I don’t eat my pizza with cheese on top, in fact the only time I ever consumed pizza with cheese is at Spumoni Gardens where the cheese is hidden underneath the sauce, thus playing my own kind of … Continue reading

Bad Ideas: Workplace Edition

Bad Ideas: Workplace Edition

Today, the gym at work announced the formation of a spring running club! Everyone said I should join it because it seemed like a really great idea for me, the girl who did the marathon, to meet other people with my compulsive, addictive behavior! This is a super bad idea and let me education you … Continue reading

Burgers, Taps and Shakes

Here’s an option for a post-race (or pre-race) meal in DC: Burger, Tap and Shake (which I can’t say without saying it to the tune of Cher’s opus, “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” her hair is huge in that video) After a Saturday long run (because all my long runs are on Saturdays) I habitually head … Continue reading

Sunday, Sunday

Wine & Dine Dilemma

The fall is quickly approaching, and by that I mean the time to register for fall races is quickly approaching. The Philadelphia Marathon was moved up a week, Marine Corps is the last weekend in October (Sandy knew not to f$#k with the marines and adjusted her landfall accordingly last year), the Staten Island ½ … Continue reading

Beach Dreaming

Beach Dreaming

This cold weather and constant wind has me dreaming of going somewhere warm and toasty that isn’t just my bathroom after I take a 40 minute shower because I came back from my run freaking freezing. Why is February so cold?! I have daffodils, Mother Nature, did you not get the memo on what that … Continue reading

Running Route

Running Route

I’m an after work runner and my route takes me past Trader Joe’s multiple times. So many times that if the security guy is outside he’ll occasionally cheer me on as I pass. The up side of this route is that Trader Joe’s is close enough that I can shop there, cool down, and still … Continue reading
