Gummy Running with Nicholas Megalis

1

I sure do love that Nicolas Megalis kid, the 24 year old musician and Vine sensation. I just bought his new single “Gummy Money” and put it on my running play list. It’s a hoot. And it encouraged me to buy some Gummy worms to make my own Vine after a recent 4 mile run, […]

The Importance of Running Partners, Jingle Bells, and Santa

0

Remember when Bekah, my perky running partner, set a goal to run 12 races in 12 months, but then got snowed out of the December Jingle Bells Run a few weeks ago? And then tried not to panic, because she’s a goal setter and an achiever and omg what happens if she didn’t actually get […]

12 Races in 12 Months: A Marathoner’s Story

0

  12 Races – A story by Bekah, the “perky running partner” I made a race calendar for myself in January. It was an answer to the question “What do I do now?” A question that presented itself almost immediately after finishing the Portland Marathon last year. I was very disturbed by the sinking bluesy feeling […]

Running Hills with my Perky Running Partner: walking counts!

2

As a reluctant, fair weather runner, I can always think of at least ten reasons not to run. On cold and rainy Sundays, I can think of 100. Most of them have to do with how much I hate raindrops on my glasses. And being cold. And feeling lazy. And thoughts of potential bubble baths, […]

Goodbye Scale, Happy Thanksgiving!

3

I woke up the day after Halloween feeling like crap because I drank too much wine and ate too much chocolate the night before. Which gives me insomnia. Which means I don’t feel like exercising. Which makes me feel like crap. Which I did. I looked in the bathroom mirror. I wasn’t happy with what […]

Still happy to be here, as usual

I’m back in it to win it! And I brought friends…

Hello Dear Friends, Gosh it’s been awhile, huh? I know, I know. So much time, not enough to say. Wait. Strike that, reverse it. First of all, have you met Ken, my boyfriend? He’s a runner too! Hover over the top left hand corner of this video and press the sound icon to launch the […]

Jason Alexander and the Dangers of Motrin: My George Costanza Dream

2

Jason Alexander and I met at an interior decorator’s trade show, in the antler furniture aisle, in my dream. I’m not really into antler furniture. I’m not sure he is either, but the way he smiled at me made me think he was into me. So I went with it. I recognized him instantly, of […]

Forgotten Pictures I Find in my Phone

0

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 […]

What Not to Wear to Coffee (or how I get Stacy London to notice me!)

0

Yes, I do wear fun (yet quirky!) fashion ensembles such as this out of the house. But only on Saturdays, when I’m walking down to get my coffee from the adorable coffee girls who don’t seem to mind what I wear (especially since I give them good tips when they compliment my brightness.) Plus, sometimes […]

The Bloggess Book: Let’s Pretend this Never Happened (and how my life has changed!)

3

So anyway. I went to the Bloggess’ “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” book signing event on Friday night and it was marvelous. And I’m not just saying that. I was in the Bay Area with Pamela, my new best work friend, and we were done with our meetings in Mt. View by 4:00 at an […]
