Happy Global Running Day!

Hello my friends – and happy Global Running Day! Who’s getting out there to celebrate?! :) (Wish I could run with this gorgeous view again to celebrate – this pic is from my New Mexico trip in March!

Perfect Running Weather

It’s soooo nice out this morning – perfect day to make it back out to the track! It was crisp and cold – in the high 40’s – so I started in a jacket but quickly ditched it and just ran in a t-shirt with gloves. My favorite! Very fashionable. ;) It was so fun to see my running buddies – it had been awhile! I forgot to wear my watch, but we did Continue Reading …

New Running Buddies = Baby Ducks

You guys – it’s baby duck season right now in DC. So adorable!! It was also the most gorgeous morning ever to be outside and on the run! My girl Sokphal and I met up for some morning miles and we couldn’t have picked a better day. Hooray for the humidity breaking – it was crisp and cool out there! Continue Reading …

Spring has Sprung!

You guys – DC is so gorgeous right now. The flowers! The sunrises! The weather! It’s glorious.

I have written about this salad before, if you want more Continue Reading …

Cherry Blossom 10 Miler 2017 Race Recap

On Sunday, I ran the Cherry Blossom 10 miler, one of my favorite local races, with Matt and a big group of friends! I was really excited when my friends at Cabot, makers of my fave sharp cheddar cheese, reached out to me a few months ago about doing another partnership for the race this year, because I had a blast working with them for it Continue Reading …

DC Cherry Blossom Run, Take 2

Hey friends! I got in another fun DC cherry blossom run yesterday – my grad school friend Lauren didn’t fly out until late afternoon, which gave us plenty of time to get in a cherry blossom jaunt in the morning! I first ran the cherry blossoms over the weekend as part of my last long run for cherry blossom 10 miler training (it’s this coming Continue Reading …

Hiking New Mexico

When I have the opportunity to get in a beautiful hike – especially in 70 degree and sunny weather with no humidity – I jump at it. When we were planning out our travel for the Brooks Altitude Camp trip (<—check out that post first if you missed it), a few of us decided that rather than flying home first thing on Sunday, we’d stick Continue Reading …
