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…

t-1 week #ucanfinish

oh man, i can’t believe there is only 1 more week until the u can finish 5 mile and 2 mile race. and am i behind on some training?! it’s amazing how crazy work weeks and traveling can really set you behind a bit. but with that being said, i was able to get out…

the journey through tuscany continues…and let me tell you, just WOW! the next wine we tried was absolutely incredible. the perfect amount of flavor and it had an incredible finish with persistent tannins (in my opinion the best finish to a wine). but which wine am i talking about? none other than the cerbaie 2012…

training galore begins

oh man, and it’s back to training after taking a week off. after our long vacation, and then jumping into the lake nona 5k, my hamstring started to get really tight and sore. so i didn’t want to take any chances and decided to rest for a week. and let me tell you…while it was…

ahhh, our next shipment from the grand tour wine club came in and i am so excited about the region focus…tuscany! i am a huge italian wine lover, so needless to say i was ecstatic when we opened the box. it’s always fun to see what wines are included. and honestly i’ve realized the first…

lake nona 5k

another weekend, another race is complete. and man, i was a little bit nervous for this one. even though it was just a 5k race, after not really running on vacation i didn’t really know how well the run would be. granted 80+ miles of walking on vacation still probably counts as a little bit…

dublin: top 5

wow, what an incredible trip. i am so sad that our vacation is already over, but alas it is and back to the normal routine. however, although the trip is over it doesn’t mean that i have forgotten all of the amazing places we visited on our trip. so with that, i am giving you…

an irish adventure

sorry it’s been a few days since i’ve posted. it’s been quite a fun and wonderful adventure the past couple days with flying over to ireland and then taking a grand driving tour around the southern part of the country. now granted, we definitely haven’t seen everything this beautiful country has to offer – but…

we will rock you

and the battle of the bands 5k is now over. it’s always so surprising to me how sometimes it can seem like you are waiting forever for an event, and then poof it’s done. that’s how i always feel about running races, well aside from half marathons, i can definitely feel the duration time during…

ready to rock

well, only a couple more days until the battle of the bands 5k. i can’t believe how quickly this race creeped up on us, especially since we lost all sense of time with the hurricane that came through. it’s amazing how staying in your house and not going to a physical location for work can…
