12 Races in 12 Months: A Marathoner’s Story


  12 Races – A story by Bekah, the “perky running partner” I made a race calendar for myself in January.

Forgotten Pictures I Find in my Phone


No, I wasn’t drunk. At all. And neither were they. Still, for some reason, I forgot all about this picture until I was scrolling through my phone, looking for things to delete to make more room for important things, under the advice and watchful eye of my smart IT girl at work, who I’ve adopted […]

Paleo Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Do you ever get sick of vegetables?


True Paleo Diet confession time: sometimes I just get tired of vegetables, and I want to eat a big bowl of Lucky Charms. Like today for instance. I was tired, hadn’t been running in a week, and man, a bowl of sugary cereal with ice cold milk sounded pretty good. But then I remembered it […]

Stand Up Paddle Boarding: how to have fun while working out on the river!


I tried Stand Up Paddle Boarding! It’s a hoot, and oh so good for the legs and the core and the arms, especially when you have to carry that heavy board to and from the car. Sheesh, a mom could get buff paddling around… image via KayakNature.com

Visiting the Healthy, Sexy Shoe Warehouse: Rows and Rows of Oh!


Yes, I did drive 100 miles to try on purple suede heels, pink python flats, and metallic platform sandals. Duh, who wouldn’t? So here’s my journey to the Oh! Shoes Warehouse, to pick up some happiness for my feet. I took the shoes to San Francisco, and I’ll tell you all about that next. Yes, […]

Scotch Tasting with the H&R Block Guy in California


Lining up for free drinks: The Spirit Mistress, Kristin, the cute waiter, and me! I drove to California last Wednesday to attend the BlogHerBET Women’s Entrepreneur Conference in Santa Clara, and to see my friend Kristin. Because I needed an adventure, and apparently driving 1200 miles in four days, through snow, sleet, and hurricane-like wind and rain […]

Running with Oranges: Paleo Style Half Marathon Training


Oh yes, we do rock, actually!. We just ran NINE miles! And, not only did we not die, but we actually felt pretty good. And, we both mentioned, right at about 8.5 miles, that maybe, just maybe we could do this silly Half Marathon in May after all.  And we will. This is the farthest […]

Let’s go bowling!


I went bowling today. I am terrible. Mostly gutter balls, but I got lucky once, and got a STRIKE so now I want to go again. We should start a bowling club! Anyone can join, just take pictures and share them with us. And tell us what your bowling name is. I think I’ll be […]

I Burst: Ruptured Cysts are my new Ouch!


Last night at 2:00 a.m. a big wave of pain washed over me while I was at the bathroom sink fiddling with the childproof cap on my pain pills. I said the “F” word, and the next thing I know, I’m lying down with my head on the floor of my closet and my husband’s […]
