Bad Blogger, Bad Runner, Great Cookie Maker

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 […]

Oh Cookies…

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 […]

LT, Cookies Phase I & Blogger Beta?

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 […]

Christmas tag, Part Deux

Egg nog or hot chocolate? Egg Nog is 50% gross and 50% inexplicable, so I’m going with hot chocolate.

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Wrap. Does anyone just set them under the tree? Maybe Christmas in a flop house? Colored lights on tree/house or white? Leah got […]

Running and Relaxing

or “My favorite way to spend the weekend”

We had tons of things to do this weekend and managed to get all of it in. On Friday we went with our favorite Chicago Running Bloggers Mike and Barb to a Bulls game. Which they won which is always nice to see. I lived in Chicago […]

9 Miles on a Thursday Night

Jason and I ran at Fermilab last night around 4:30pm. Instead of doing multiple loops around the rings, we decided to do about half of the miles on other parts of the Fermilab campus. The picture is from the new program TrackRunner. I think I am need of new shoes because I can always tell […]

Physics…..is Like….Really Hard


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 […]

Running …is Like….Really Hard

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 […]

Tuesday Headache….


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 […]
