december cheers!

can anyone else believe that we are in the month of december already? i feel like this year has passed us by so quickly. and as i think back on the year, we’ve done so much…multiple half marathons, a european adventure, and more! i believe sometimes we forget all of the great moments and we…

#ouchalf recap

whoa guys, i can’t believe i am saying this but i have officially finished five (i repeat, 5) half marathons this year. my 2017 goal is finally complete?! it seriously has felt like a long time coming until i could reach this goal…but I DID IT! with that being said, it definitely didn’t come without…

it’s holiday season

it’s holiday season, and what better way to celebrate than with a glass of wine and decorating the house! seriously decorating for christmas is probably one of my favorite things to do…i will admit, we got back from our thanksgiving trip and putting the tree up was the first thing i did when we got…

t-1 week to #ouchalf

holy smokes, i can’t believe orlando’s hometown half marathon is only a week away! this race has definitely snuck up on me, but alas it is almost here. thankfully yesterday, i was able to get in a good 5 mile run to get prepared…and trust me, after the holiday i was extremely impressed that even…

north of the bay

another shipment has arrived from the grand tour…and can anyone guess what our next destination is? we didn’t have to travel too far staying in the united states, but focused on a region that everyone knows – north of the bay (napa valley, sonoma valley and green valley). as much as i love trying wines…

back at it…

well, if today’s run could have a theme it would be “clear your mind.” over the past few weeks, so many things have been going through my brain…all summing up to that key phrase, “am i doing enough?” or “am i enough?” this is something that i think about a lot, and i think it’s…

universal staycation

who doesn’t love a great staycation?! and that’s exactly what we were able to do this past friday and saturday with some of our closest friends, staying at the loews royal pacific resort at universal orlando. now this staycation was a little different than our previous ones, filled with jam-packed fun at the universal orlando…

#ucanfinish 2017

another race has come and gone. it always amazes me how quickly those days go by…and then it’s on to the next race to train for. and this past weekend was yet another great race from track shack. i still can’t believe that we are half way through the running series. unfortunately, my sickness from…

it’s finally fall…

for probably only a few days, but hey?! i will take it. and with cooler temperatures FINALLY comes running in cooler weather. it’s about time. it’s amazing how big of a difference 20 degrees makes during a run – if only every day was like this. and while i didn’t plan a very long run,…

tuscany tuesday

family dinner resumes! after a ton of travel and crazy work weeks, a fun night with our crew was definitely a must. and last night, we decided to make one of our favorites that reminds us of cooler weather. fitting since we are supposed to get “fall” weather in the sunshine state this week. can…
