Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud. This has been a rough month for me, so I just have some random thoughts on things that lift my spirits. 1) I love the simple things that ease my mind, especially in the midst of trouble. Like my barely-a-craft light jar. Especially… Continue reading TOL: soul-soothing
Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets, as an excuse for my rambling… This week, I: -only managed to read one book, Paula Poundstone’s The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happinness. An interesting read, just wasn’t what I expected. But I liked it. -survived the first week of my… Continue reading week in review: progress
The joint workout did not happen yesterday, so I hit the gym by myself for the Week 1, Day 2 of the 10k training plan.

Today was the Mammoth Race, the 5k the BFF and I signed up for about 3 months ago, and our first goal race for all… Continue reading playing hobbit (weekend workout #11)
I skipped working out yesterday in favor of re-organizing my kitchen (the clutter was driving me crazy). And I was exhausted from work on Friday, so I slept 10.5 hours (wow!). Today, the BFF and I planned a long run. In reality we ran for about 1 minute, then walked the rest. Sigh. However…we did… Continue reading weekend workout #10
The week before last, I hiked the Grand Canyon with my best friend. The original plan was to do the Rim to Rim hike (start on the South Rim, hike down, across, and up the North Rim). That’s not what happened. Instead, I got dehydrated pretty bad on the way down—despite drinking 80 oz. of… Continue reading things I learned hiking the Grand Canyon
