What I’m Loving Wednesday

I missed blogging last week due to sheer craziness and no time! Now, I’m back on track and ready for this week’s edition of What I’m Loving Wednesday! I’m loving the fact that I was able to spend a week in Houston with friends and family! It’s weird being 1300 miles away for most of […]

Running: Pittsburgh vs. Houston

This morning I took off for a 7ish miler at 6:15am and it was already 76 degrees in Houston! I mean, come on, the sun wasn’t even out. Granted, Saturday’s high was a whopping 109 degrees and was a record breaker. During the run, I got to thinking about the differences in running up north […]

Maggie’s big surprise was a night on the town! Well, not really, more like a night downtown at the ballpark. Either way, it was her first time to go downtown and her first baseball game and she had a blast! The Pirates hosted Pup at the Park nights once a month this summer and it […]

Tie Dye and Running

Clever title, I know. There really isn’t much correlation between tie dying and running except for the fact that I did both this past weekend thus, no witty title from me today. However, I do have a lot of fun stuff to tell you! After JP and I got back from our breakfast and veggie […]

Mmmm…breakfast!

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. Not only is the food the best, but it is the most important for many reasons! It revs up your metabolism and fat burning ability. Think about it, after 7-8 + hours of sleep, your body is going into starvation mode and needs this nutrition […]

Football and Fouett├ęs

Today is a very big day! A very athletic day to say the least. I started off my morning with a wonderful 45 minute run and I managed to pack 5.3 miles in! Since this Sunday is our 10 miler and I didn’t run in Vegas (I wonder why), I feel a lot better after […]
