The Evening “Runs”

The Evening “Runs”

I went out to run a short 3 miles on tuesday with Big Peach Running Company, our local running store. I’ve never usually made it out, but it was a short 3 mile instead of the usual 5 miles and my husband was home early, so I dashed over. The drive was where the dash ended. I wilted about 1.75 – 2 miles into the run. There was a ton of factors – it was my first run/movement in 13…

Mango Salsa with Harvest Grains

Mango Salsa with Harvest Grains

I LOVE mangoes. Love them! Then I wrote a post on some of my favorite mango recipes, Indian style. And when my husband came home with a big bunch of super sweet mangoes, I had a sudden hankering for mango salsa. But I wanted something more healthy than chips to eat with it. I was initially thinking of quinoa, but I spotted Trader Joe’s harvest blend in my pantry. The blend is a mix of Israeli Couscous, Orzo, Baby Garbanzo…

Fastinista – Summer Watermelon

Does it already feel like summer or do you wish for summer to get here?  Why not dress up cool like summer to get your wish? I wore this outfit on plenty of group runs to many compliments.

Skirt Sports’ Gym Girl Ultra in Pink crush paired up perfectly with a green Tshirt….

Pinspiration Wedneday – I’m Making Myself

I came across this collage that someone else had pinned. It looked like it was part of an ad-campaign, of what I don’t know. The pin itself didn’t lead to anyplace on the internet, so I have no idea about the context of the images. But it got me thinking – In all the 3 years that I have been running, this is the first year that I have not signed up for a race! While it has given me the…

We are in this together – Augusta 70.3

We are in this together – Augusta 70.3

Everytime our conversation brings up the word “Augusta”, my husband just nods.  I am nervous, excited and a bit anxious about how the next 20 weeks will shape out.  This is one of the times when I am glad that my husband is more level headed and takes things cool, without majorly showing any reaction or wearing his heart on his sleeve. Because I am reacting plenty for both of us! Did I mention that I am freaking out? I am…

Pinspiration Friday – Focus on Yourself

Pinspiration Friday – Focus on Yourself

Every Friday, I scout around that wonderful place Pinterest (which I refer to fondly as Facebook on crack!) for motivation and inspiration to share. This week, this pin popped up on my ‘timeline’ without me having to dig in at all. As I read this, I started thinking about how much we tend to think about the people around us, the influences, the one we are influenced by, the chaos, the environment, so many factors that we cannot control. Instead…
