Matt’s New PDR: 12 Miles!

On Sunday morning, Matt set a new personal distance record for running: 12 miles!!


I’m so proud of him!

As you guys know, we’re currently training for the Pittsburgh Half Marathon in 2 weeks, which will be Matt’s first half marathon (and his little brother Drew’s first half, too)! My brother is going to join in on the adventure with us, too, as are a big group of our friends. It should be quite the party! This 12 miler was the longest run that we’ll do for training and Matt knocked it out with no problem.

Hi everyone! Anyone else watching the Boston Marathon coverage right now? It sure makes me want to go out for a run!

Hello, my friends! You know what’s crazy? A couple days ago, Matt and I were sitting outside on our porch in shorts and t-shirts, enjoying tomato, basil & mozzarella salads. And then apparently there were snow flurries last night, and when I woke up this morning my phone said it was 30 “feels like 13” outside. What the heck?! Mother Continue Reading …

Farewell, Cherry Blossoms!


Good afternoon! I hope you’re all having a nice day – it’s rainy and dreary here so I’ve been hunkered down getting things done, though I did give myself a lunchtime yoga break over at Edge Yoga. I was feeling strong and balanced today so I attempted headstand with the help of the instructor, and I did it! Proud. :) Now to work on balancing Continue Reading …
