The Official Start of Training [Three Weeks Later]

So, training for the Princess Half Marathon started officially about three weeks ago. I mentioned that I was debating different training plans awhile back and my plan is to mostly follow the time improvement official plan from Jeff Galloway for runDisney. My first run once training officially started was a beautiful sunset run. We talked… Continue reading The Official Start of Training [Three Weeks Later]

Can you guess where this post is going? Yup, BLISTERS. So, it’s a new revelation out of nowhere that socks matter. No, no. That’d be much too easy.

It’s been awhile since my first spotlight, so it seemed about time for another. So, let’s talk about BodyFlow™. Fun fact: It’s only called BodyFlow in the United States. If you go anywhere else in the world, or are visiting this blog from anywhere else in the world (hi! welcome!), you’ll see BodyBalance™.

How’s the weather? [I’m Feelin’ HOT HOT HOT]

Let’s get one thing straight from the start: I live in San Diego. I grew up not in San Diego, but in another Southern California beach town (primarily). I am SPOILED as heck by the weather (I pay rather dearly to be spoiled by the weather in fact). My yearly seasons tend to look like… Continue reading How’s the weather? [I’m Feelin’ HOT HOT HOT]
