Dopey Challenge 2017: Day 1

Dopey Challenge 2017: Day 1

I headed to Orlando as has become my norm on the earliest JetBlue flight of the day from Washington to Orlando on Tuesday. I used to work a full day and then take an evening flight on Tuesday but since I started doing the Dopey Challenge, I’ve grown to really love being able to have … Continue reading

Fun things to do in NJ: No, really.

Fun things to do in NJ: No, really.

I talk about DC a lot because that’s where I live now, but I’m a native New Jersey girl. People always talk shit about New Jersey. When we native New Jerseyans leave the state, we sometimes feel like expats in foreign, hostile lands where the bagels taste terrible and the natives are not at all … Continue reading

The Power of Suggestion

The Power of Suggestion

I enjoy reading running blogs, it’s a subject I find myself very interested in and unlike other pursuits runners really like blogging about running. I once perused the web for a blog by an equestrian and guess what? Kind of limited. But as you can imagine, the healthy living and running genres tend to blend … Continue reading

Working out the kinks

Working out the kinks

This past week has been busy. As some of you may have picked up on, I had a house guest. I hadn’t seen her in 3 years (we met when I was a PhD student in Minneapolis) and it became increasingly clear that our friendship was… well, let’s just say I’m not in a rush … Continue reading

Eating for Dopey

Eating for Dopey

Typically, if I’m home in my apartment over the weekend I like to plan out food for the week. Since I really only feed myself, I can make one regular recipe of something and then just portion it off for 5 lunches or 5 dinners to get me through the week. If I’m not home … Continue reading

Marathon Weekend: I’d Eat That

Marathon Weekend: I’d Eat That

As we all know, you need to eat to fuel your runs and it’s very important to get proper nutrition after a run (hence why I kinda sorta maybe had Jenn go into Krispy Kreme after a very taxing 5ish mile run). So naturally, I’m all about planning out where I’m going to eat for … Continue reading

Breakfast of Unhealthy People

I found a way to take my arguably healthy 100 calorie packet of oatmeal that I ate plain and made with just water and turn it into something sugar filled and unhealthy. That’s the kind of innovation we’re missing in America these days. My secret: Add cocoa mix. And chocolate chips. Because I think we … Continue reading

There. I said it.

After waiting in line at Trader Joe’s (for a mere 5 minutes) I think people who insist that they love sriracha and talk about it all the time are pretentious assholes and just like saying the name over and over and over again because they’re trying to prove they have a refined palate or something. … Continue reading

Tower of Terrifying Food and Wine

Tower of Terrifying Food and Wine

Tower of Terror and Wine & Dine have something in common beyond just the running of 10 miles: FOOD AND WINE! So, let’s start talking Food & Wine festival. I could tell you all about how much I love Food & Wine but there’s a better source for it that I will just point out … Continue reading

Savor it.

Savor it.

If everything else about this week sucked, I can say that the entire week was redeemed simply by the weather today. It was, in a single word, perfect. I wasn’t sweating like a pig just walking out a door and given how the summer’s been going I’m definitely putting that in the win column. We … Continue reading
