Yoga and Fries

Wednesday night, I went to yoga and ate a double-patty hamburger and fries for dinner.

5 Tips for Surviving Turkey Week

I sat in front of my laptop for over an hour this morning trying to figure out what to write this week. Over an hour.  And I’m being entirely serious.  It was an unreal waste of blog time.  Nothing was coming to me.  I fell asleep a couple of times, I wrote some poetry, but [...]

Last weekend I went up to Raleigh, NC, our state capital, for the 20th anniversary Rock ’n’ Roll half and full Marathon.  I only ran the half – I’m not ENTIRELY crazy.  However, I am a little bit crazy, because I did voluntarily choose to run 13.1 miles. Did I mention I paid to run [...]
