This weekend was the second stop on my 3 halfs, 3 weekends, 3 states tour: beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. Continue reading “3 Halfs, 3 Weekends, 3 States: Race 13.1 Charleston”
This weekend kicked off a little mini challenge I have over the next 3 weekends: 3 Halfs, in 3 Weekends, in 3 States. It was going to be 6 back to back race weekends, but I realized that was a little crazy and decided to take it easy (haha).
And I’m sad to say it was probably my least favorite event to date. Continue reading “3 Halfs, 3 Weekends, 3 States: Race 13.1 Fayetteville”
I’ve been on a nonfiction kick lately. I blame this on the fact that when I go to the library I pick up about 10 fiction books before I think to browse around the nonfiction selections, so the nonfiction ones draw me in a little more when it’s time to pick a book to be sent for review.

Check out the guest blog I wrote over at Verderamade!
With an upcoming trip to Disney (in 15 days!) I’ve decided to do a few little DIY projects in preparation.
I did a
stupid thing today and signed up for my 3rd full marathon.
If you’ve spoken to me at all since I ran the Marine Corps Marathon last year, you’ll know how much I have complained about that race. So much so, that I swore to not run a marathon during 2016. I tried it in 2014, hated it. 2015, hated it. This year, I was not going to put myself through the torture of training just to experience heartbreak again. 2016 was the year of the half marathon, with a Race 13.1 Season Pass being purchased, and a registration for my first RunDisney race(s) happening.
And then I became a Blue Ridge Marathon ambassador. Continue reading “I Hate Marathons. So I’m Running My Third.”
The latest book I received to review was Rad Women Worldwide: Artists and Athletes, Pirates and Punks, and Other Revolutionaries Who Shaped History. To be completely honest, I only picked the book because it was the only one that looked remotely interesting in the list I was given to pick from, and the 2 reviews that had been posted about it on Blogging for Books were pretty good.

A few months ago I read this article where a BuzzFeed writer let her boyfriend dress her for a week. After reading it, I was inspired to try the challenge of letting Zach dress me for a week. Plus, picking out outfits day after day can get you stuck in a rut, and I’m always looking for ways to shake up my outfits. For some reason I kept pushing off asking him because I figured he would just think it was stupid and I secretly really wanted him to give it a try. Well, a few weeks ago I finally asked him and he said yes, much to my surprise. He actually might have been a little excited about it actually 😉 So all last week I wore the outfits he picked out for me, and I learned a few things about his fashion sense.
