Dopey Update

Dopey Update

It’s official, after a few phone calls with Central Reservations at Disney World, I managed to secure a discount for January with my very own special pin code. 30% off a Deluxe hotel and after consulting with my sister we decided it was time to return to our original favorite… The Polynesian!

Marine Corps Marathon

Let’s be honest, I was kind of blase about the Marine Corps Marathon. It’s in DC. It’s on my regular running routes. Blah blah blah. Then I found out something that made this race incredibly magical. A girl in my running group said the magic words that will get me through the marathon. Dunkin’ Donuts … Continue reading

Nothing Like It

There is nothing in this world that compares to the feeling of total disappointment when you wake up and realize it’s Monday.

Television to Run to: Suits

Okay, you’re on the treadmill and you need a little motivation. Something to get you through the run so you start flipping through the channels and realize that the news puts you to sleep when you’re hopped up on caffeine, so you really don’t need something to bore while you’re already bored. Turns out, the … Continue reading

Two Words: Nordstrom Rack

Two Words: Nordstrom Rack

If you’re looking to buy some workout clothing (or like, regular clothing I guess, but why would want that?) Nordstrom Rack is the most amazing store ever. No, EVER. I went in this weekend to see if I could pick up some shirts because I realized that when I run 5 days a week, I … Continue reading

Pinterest

Announcing that I do in fact have pinterest. It’s addicting and, just so you know, I’ve never actually made any of the things I have a recipe and/or tutorial for, but it’s been an endless source of inspiration for that day when I have a ton of free time on my hands and an endless … Continue reading
