  • Weekend: Double Race Long Run + Good Food + Friends

    { 14 comments }

    Hello. How was your weekend? How's the week starting off for you guys? I was up around 6:30 a.m. to enjoy a quiet start to the day with some coffee and catch up before teaching yoga at 8:15. I was thrilled to walk into a buzzing classroom with over 50 yogis this morning. Everyone seemed [...]

    { 38 comments }

    It's a happy Saturday over here. I ran my first half marathon in four years this morning and not only PR'd but went sub-1:45 with a finishing time of 1:44:25. It was a seven and a half minute PR from my last half marathon in 2010 where I ran the same race I did today, [...]

    It's a beautiful Saturday in Charlotte. The sun is shining and I'm having a great day full of my favorite things - running, yoga, Starbucks, farmers market, cooking and Georgia football. I set a new 5K PR (which admittedly was not difficult given that it was only my second 5K ever). I ran my first [...]

    The Thunder Road Half Marathon completely surprised me today. Despite my lack of training and preparation, I still managed a 5 minute PR. I am so excited and in disbelief that I had such a great race. All the signs leading up to the race were pointing to a lackluster performance but once I got [...]
