Our afternoon outing was fun and successful! We had a little time to kill so we ventured into the most amazing antique shop I’ve ever been in (mostly because they had tons and tons of stuff and it wasn’t all breakable!) But I did recognize some family heirlooms I have already! Blue Willow And I […]

August 31, 2010

A wee bit late, but I FINALLY made a running page!! You can find it on the KERF Favorites tab and it contains all of my race recaps (not that I’ve run that many!) as well as a whole spiel of information on my half marathon training like hydration, fueling, mile reports and my Camelbak. […]

Tikka tikka tikka. The sound of little legs on your arm. Compared to our house in Charlotte, this house has VERY VERY FEW bugs. Except for these guys: For some reason I’ve been calling them “potato bugs” my whole life, but after some Tweeting this morning, I’m pretty sure that’s a Brown Marmorated Stink Bug. […]

Luckily, I’ve still managed to get a lot done, but without enthusiasm. Mid-morning I attempted to correct whatever was off balance in my body with a wheatgrass pack […]

Third time’s a charm!!!   6 ‘cups’ water = 30 oz in the carafe A heaping 1/2 cup of grounds = strong, dark and handsome :)  Was very similar in body to French press! It’s funny that many of you commented that the French press is so romantic because I think of the French press […]

1337. Apparently there’s some nerd joke about that [says Matt]. But that’s how many miles we covered today. ~5 biking to our starting point, followed by 4 swift miles on a GREENWAY! Paved, scenic – perfect! Getting off of my bike was hard – total brick moment. But before I knew it we were running […]
