  • Welcoming 2015 + NYE Outfit


    Happy Friday and Happy New Year! I kicked off my New Year’s Eve by teaching a 6 a.m. hot yoga class at Charlotte Yoga. It was 28 degrees when I left for class so the monkey hat was a must! :) I spent the rest of the day working on the computer, cleaning, in meetings [...]

  • Salted Fudge Brownies (The Best Brownie Recipe Ever!)


    When it comes to desserts I tend to gravitate more towards fruity flavored things rather than chocolate. When I look at a dessert menu I can always pass on things like chocolate cake and chocolate mousse. I like chocolate in things but I don’t like strictly chocolate flavored things.

He brought is super cute golden retriever puppy, Goose. He’s only 7 months old! Goose and Sullie have been playing (in the dirt, of course) since his [...]

  • Embracing the Taper


    Well, it’s been a long road but I’ve finally reached the point in marathon training that I’ve been working for the last 14 weeks – TAPER TIME. And as to be expected, I’m only two days into the taper and already losing my mind. Can’t I just squeeze one more long run in? Why can’t [...]
