2013 Weekly Workout Round-Up (July 15-21)

In case you missed my last post, I’ve suspended other posts until I catch up on my Weekly Workout Round-Ups.  If you’re uber-curious about what my workout weeks look like, they are all Categorized under 2013 Weekly Workout Round-Up (two vacation weeks end June/early July are missing – I’m working on those, too). But for […]

2013 Weekly Workout Round-Up (July 8-14)

Better hop to this, before I get any further behind. I know I’m missing a few vacation weeks; hopefully I’ll make them up in a (probably boring and vague) post eventually, but for now, let’s focus on what’s gone down since we returned from the US. [By the way – new friends from Trail Running […]

What do you get for spending the weekend at the gym?

I spent almost 24 hours in a Fitness First gym this weekend.  My results? LOTS of sweaty clothes… At least 50 repeats of Danny Byrd’s “Daydreamer”… [And we’re all daydreaming now – dun, dun, dun – dun, dun, dun!] More bottles refills than I care to count… [You know your sweat glands work in overdrive when the […]

Good Mornings for a Friday (July 19)

Well, it’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these, now hasn’t it?  So let’s hop to it! Does anyone even use that expression anymore?  Ah, well. I do, apparently! [For those who are new, “Good Mornings” is a recurring feature at RWH – it’s basically my way of doing a light and easy photo-dump post of […]

For anyone who missed the announcement this weekend: I’m running the City to Surf Marathon in Perth! [In less than 6 weeks!] First of all, Jean asked a (very reasonable) question: Why did I wait so long to blog about this?  I am a running/blogger, after all.  Shouldn’t I be telling you all about my running??

It’s About Freaking Time! (aka What I’m Training For*)

*Please, someone, tell me how to rephrase this parenthetical into a short, snappy phrase that DOESN’T end in a preposition.  Please. I made a secret promise to myself (and to you all) that I wouldn’t speak another word about my training until I shared what, exactly, I’m training for.  [There it is again.  Stupid preposition. […]

Back (to ‘Where-My-Bed-Is’) Home!

What a difference a day makes:  At 1 PM Eastern Standard Time, KMN and I were unloading our bags from my Mom’s car at the curb at Newark Airport.  Twenty-five hours later, we were in the Taxi queue at Changi Airport (Singapore).  Add in a twelve-hour time difference, an hour of decompressing when we got […]

Lovin’ on Rochester – and – The Best Chauffeur EVER

Our Fourth of July celebrations were awesome.  Things started off right with a fantastic run, and the good times just kept rolling.  I partied (gently, responsibly, and while wearing compression sleeves) with a few dear, dear friends.  These are ladies who I’ve known since I was in fifth grade.  The intervening 20 years have included LOT […]
