week in review: rim-to-rim

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats Fast Feets for the week in review. I’ve been MIA for a bit. Too busy. But, since I last posted, I: -hiked the Grand Canyon, rim-to-rim, in less than 24 hours! (21 1/2 hours, to be exact). We encountered thunderstorms, 4 hours of rain, dropping temps, snow, and… Continue reading week in review: rim-to-rim

week in review: only one thing

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feetsfor the week in review. Writing this on Sunday afternoon, only one thing is on my mind: today we hiked 20 miles. I’m tired. My feet hurt and I have a huge blister on the bottom of my left foot. Pretty sure it’s bedtime at 5 p.m.

week in review: wildlife + workouts

Someone… Continue reading week in review: wildlife + workouts

week in review: from insanely busy to disgusted

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in review. I missed last week for a very good reason:  my parents were in town for a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon (when I usually write this post), and spending time with them and Baby Brother was more important. I’ll actually… Continue reading week in review: from insanely busy to disgusted

TOL: change is hard

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud. It’s the first week of January, so it seems like everybody is making changes:  to their diet, their exercise routine, to their life. It’s a little overwhelming, frankly. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge supporter of positive change, and, as a habitual… Continue reading TOL: change is hard

what my running motivation looks like on any given day

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons to talk about my running motivation–or lack thereof. Actually, I’m just trying to motivate myself into finishing the other half of my homework and getting a run in, since I was too swamped on Tuesday to run (bad runner, I know). These are the stages of my… Continue reading what my running motivation looks like on any given day

weekly workouts #4

I need an accountability partner. In my eating choices. My workouts. Life. That’s kind of the point of these posts: I’m basically physically lazy, and if I don’t keep myself accountable, I’ll totally slack off and slop around the apartment. Which is kind of what happened since last fall. I was doing great:  running regularly,… Continue reading weekly workouts #4
