it’s back to running

as some of you may have seen on my instagram feed and stories, i decided to take a little break from the “running” portion of my 26 day challenge. after day 6, my knee was pretty swollen and hurting more than normal – so i decided to not be stubborn and listen to what my…

prost! part 2

and the journey through germany continues…and this time with a delicious pinot noir from our latest grand tour shipment. so delicious, that i haven’t shared it with anyone yet – whoops?! and since i’ve been the only one to try it thus far, i’ve been able to pair this wine with a couple different meals…

just keep swimming

well, i have survived the first 5 days of my 26 day challenge. holy smokes, am i starting to get sore already. but, it has totally been worth it to start getting more consistent with my running. and while i’m not going out and running 5 miles everyday – i really think these quick runs…

prost! part 1

and the next stop on our grand tour is…GERMANY! i’m not going to lie, one of my favorite parts of this wine club is trying to guess what part of the world we will be traveling to next – through wine of course?! and my initial guess before opening our box was france, but when…

26 day challenge

hey followers! so i was recently challenged by my former bama gymnastics coach to take part in a 26 day challenge. but what does that mean, you ask? well, it can really mean anything you want it to. for me, it’s focused around “what inspires me to get out and moving!” and naturally (if you’ve…

track tuesday

start strong, finish stronger. i’d say that was the perfect mantra for yesterday’s track tuesday session. there is something about a track workout that gets me extremely nervous, but yet also extremely excited at the same time. i think like any run, you just never really know, leading into the workout, how you’re body is…

winter park staycation

wow, it’s amazing how a staycation can really feel like you are a thousand miles away from home – even in a location where you’ve visited before. and that’s exactly how we felt during our time at the alfond inn at rollins in winter park, florida. this was my first time staying at the property,…

it’s a celebration

holy smokes, i cannot believe that the first race of the track shack series is already complete. it seems like yesterday when i signed up to become a fanatic for the year, AGAIN! and let me tell you, it was the best decision to sign up for the entire series for a second year in…

wine down wednesday

well, wine down wendesday was definitely in effect last night. sometimes after a long week (yep, 3 days already seems like a long week), you just need to open a great bottle of wine and relax. and that is exactly what happened last night – breaking into our of our grand tour wines. now this…
