Well well well, the holidays are coming to a close. Jason and I went to Fort Wayne, IN for the holidays and hung out with his brothers, parents and tons of neices including the newest addition to the family, Caeli. We have not seen Jason’s oldest brother Andy and his wife Lysa (pronouned Lisa) (Parents […]
Yesterday brought a busy day full of finding camera battery chargers, getting an eyebrow wax, getting a hair cut (see pic on right for cuteness factor of a million), and then of course…making the cookies. I have 8 types of cookies that I want to make for the year and last night I was able […]
Yesterday was the first Lactate Threshold run of the training cycle. In my opinion these are by far the hardest runs on the schedule. I get nervous and have a slight stomach ache the day we are doing them, similar to if it was a race day. During the summer, I think we ended up […]
Egg nog or hot chocolate? Egg Nog is 50% gross and 50% inexplicable, so I’m going with hot chocolate.

Another long day where my office mate pointed out to me yet another error I have in my code. It’s not that I don’t know how to code, but rather I am missing a fundemental understanding of what I am doing. Which you know….is awesome.
I get frustrated because at this obscenly old age […]
Or maybe running with a hangover and after another shitty day at work makes it so hard.
Either way the plan was 8 miles with 10x100m strides in there. We split the workout into three parts as follows : One lap around the ring = 3.7 miles Walked out 100m, strided back, walked to start […]

awe-some to say the least.
Jason and I played volleyball for about an hour and a half and headed home as soon as our games were over (and we won a game!!!!). We went out to our favorite bar, Small Bar, which we frequent on Monday […]
