Hi there.

I’m back from a weekend relatively offline. I had a lovely weekend filled with running, hiking and even a little time spent down at the Jersey Shore strolling the boardwalk and enjoying the classics like mini golf, skeeball and ice cream!

I’m keeping up with my training and Saturday I ran 5 slow miles. It’s the longest distance I’ve run since the San Francisco Half about a month ago. I’m really excited that my foot is holding up. YAY!

Summer Running!

Summer Running!

Yesterday I didn’t run but I hiked for + hours and then took a 2.5 mile walk later in the day.

Late this afternoon I set out for a 3 miler but before I even got to the first mile I realized I was missing a very important part of running gear (especially on a sticky and hot summer day). The compression shorts that go under my running shorts. I was feeling a bit of chafing and immediately turned around (walked back) to re-dress and set back out again. Crisis averted!

In total I covered about 4 miles. 3 1/4 of running and 3/4 of walking. It’s been so hot and humid the last few days that I just didn’t want anything hot for dinner tonight. I ended up making the most beautiful and healthy meal.

So September is here and I couldn’t be more excited! It means that my favorite season is just a few weeks away. And in just 2 weeks I’ll be headed out west—first to visit family in Arizona—and then to San Francisco for the Ragnar Relay to Napa! I’ve also got the Autism Speaks 4 Miles of Hope this Saturday.

What do you look forward to in September?

What’s your favorite Season? 


  1. My bday. And oh, does anyone ask if you’ve seen snooky before? 😉

    • Cool! TSA is having a birthday this month! Woot! Oh I hate when people bring up Snooky….Luckily I’ve never seen her. I have seen some of the Real Housewives of NY though…

  2. September for me means I am back at work which is both good and bad. I do love teaching but love my summer afternoon naps! My schedule looks a lot like you….funny thing. I have people coming from the east coast to run Ragnar with me! I will get your room ready and tell Gus to expect you soon!
    I got in some good runs this weekend but was too lazy to round off my miles for August…95.5. Just seems like I should have gone out for the extra 4.5

  3. September = new weather, new school, new schedule, and new goals. 🙂
