February Runfessions
Running
I’m linking up with the lovely ladies today for Friday Five 2.0 and the fabulous Marcia for Runfessions.  February sure did fly by, but not without some things to come clean on! I wasn’t really planning on adding another half marathon to my race calendar this spring, but when the hubs decided to go out to the hunting club this …
Workouts – Last Week Today – February 19
Running
I’m still just running as I feel like it, 4 days a week with one long run.  My weeknight runs have been on the short side at 3 miles so that I don’t have to leave work early to get it in before it gets dark.  I’m looking forward to the time change so I can increase my distance.  I have been adding a progression run …

Running
After my long run on Sunday, I took it light this week.  I was up in the air about running on Saturday… but sleeping in and being lazy enjoying a couple cups of tea and reading won out. Today I ran the Galveston Half Marathon… I’ll recap it later this week – spoiler alert: I beat my time goal and …
Workouts – Last Week Today – February 5
Running
Another easy week this week.  My next race is the Galveston Half Marathon next Sunday.  I’m just keeping my running to 4 days a week with one of them being a long run. Although I do have a race on the horizon, I’m not too worried about it.  I am actually thinking about running that race as a “fun” run. …
February Coffee Date
Running
Today I’m joining the Ultimate Coffee Date for some catching up!  I don’t regularly drink coffee any longer, but I do drink tea… so let’s sit down and have a nice warm beverage and do some catching up! Over tea, I’d tell you that I had a really great time last Sunday at Southern Star Brewery for Paint on Tap.  It …
Fennel, Leek, & Mushroom Pasta with Artichoke Hearts
Running
This dish is a creation from remnants from my fridge.  I had the leeks left over from the spanakorizo and the fennel left over from my sweet potato and white bean stew.  The pasta and artichoke hearts were already in the pantry and I had mushrooms on hand. This pasta dish is how I like it… heavy on the vegetables, light on the pasta. …

Running
This week, I eased into running one week post marathon.  I am taking it slow and easy…  best way to recovery, I think.  I didn’t feel any soreness or DOMS after the race., and for that I am thankful. I am enjoy running easy, and although I do have a race on the horizon, I’m not too worried about it.  I …
January Runfessions
Running
I’m linking up with the lovely ladies today for Friday Five 2.0 and the fabulous Marcia for Runfessions.  First of all, how is it already the end of January! I have a few things on my mind to Runfess… To tell you the truth… I’m still living on my “marathon high” … and sometimes in disbelief that I ran 26.2 miles.  …
Workouts – Last Week Today – January 15
Running
Last week was my final week of training before running the Houston Marathon. Today, I set out to accomplish that big scary goal that I had set out to do a year ago – and I finished!  I’ll be posting a recap of the race in the upcoming week… stay tuned! This week was an easy week for me, as I finished …
Workouts – Last Week Today – January 8
Running
I’m heading into my FINAL week of training for the Houston Marathon. Race day is in 7 days away. I’m hanging out in the taper now. My mileage was a little low last week as I ran my Sunday long run on Saturday due to the holiday. I made it to two yoga classes this week, which felt awesome!  I’ve been foam rolling …
