Spring in February

So, I know it’s going to potentially snow later this week and this is all one huge tease, but you guys. It’s SO NICE in DC right now! Yesterday it was 60 degrees and sunny – it was even warm enough to enjoy lunch outside! I met a friend at Teaism, an old fave. Love their bento boxes! When I went back to the office after lunch I pounded through a Continue Reading …

Back to Track + Yesterday’s Eats

You guys – I finally made it back to the track again this morning! As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been having a hard time getting motivated for weekday morning runs lately – the cold and dark have just not been appealing at all. And since we’ve been gone on the weekends I’ve been missing my long(er) weekend run dates, too, which I don’t normally Continue Reading …

Random vs. Whole Running Miles

Hi friends! Popping in for some Wednesday randomness for you. First, we are still enjoying this crockpot chicken and veggie stew – recipe is coming Friday, get pumped. I had some more for lunch yesterday, this time with some arugula on top! Second, The Great Homemade Kombucha Experiment of 2016/2017 is still going strong! I mentioned previously Continue Reading …

Sunrise Track Workout + What Spring Races Should I Do?

Gooooood morning! It’s another really cold one here in DC – in the teens with windchill. But, I’m proud because I dragged myself out of my warm bed and over to the track this morning! This is my “I made it back to the track for the first time in ages!” pose, apparently. :) After the Marine Corps Marathon in late October I was reeeeeally burned Continue Reading …

Weekend Adventures

Hi friends! It was quite the wintery weekend over here – very cold temperatures and our first snow of the season, too! On Friday night, Matt and I picked up dinner at Lost Dog in Arlington and drove up to Bethesda to hang out with our friends Tom and Janice – they just had their second child, so we were excited to meet him! It was a fun night – Continue Reading …

Back on the Run + Recent Eats

Hey guys! I’m so glad many of you enjoyed my “Adding, Not Subtracting, For a Healthier New Year” post yesterday! I’m feeling more or less recovered from my cold now and was excited to get back on the run yesterday for my first official workout of the new year! 4.5 miles with friends under gray/drizzly skies. Felt really good to get out there! Continue Reading …

Reframing Makes all the Difference

Hi guys! Just popping in with a tip that sometimes reframing/changing your mentality about something makes all the difference. :) I was reminded of this a few days ago and thought it might be helpful to share! As you guys know, we spent the holidays this year in Pittsburgh area with Matt’s family. On the 23rd, Matt met up with some high school Continue Reading …

Thoughts on Running and Life

Yesterday, I went on a run for the first time in nearly a week and a half (the last one was my annual DC Christmas tree light run). I can’t even remember the last time I went so long without running, but I wasn’t craving a run (and over the weekend when I was, it was too icy), so I didn’t force myself to get one in until I really wanted to. I’ve Continue Reading …
