Half Marathon Training Week 1 & Upcoming Races

A few weeks ago, I went into a fugue state and registered for a shit-load of races. I’m pretty sure I will regret this by the third or fourth race, but the price was right on most, and a deal is a deal, amirite? My upcoming races are: Night Nation Run – Orlando: July 28…

Runner Struggles: Runner’s Trots

Guys, I’ve been struggling. I’ve been going back and forth as to whether or not I wanted to share my story, and make myself vulnerable. But I’ve decided to let down my walls, put on a brave face, soldier forth, and put it out there for all to judge. Because, quite frankly, it’s pretty fricking…

Race Recap: Best Damn Race Orlando 10K 2018

So before I get into this race recap, let me start off by saying that I’m super tempted by the idea of geocaching, because I like the idea of finding buried treasure. And not-so-buried treasure. However, my hangup is that if I do it, and spend my valuable time in the outdoors looking for something,…

My Hobby Lobby Experience

So when I logged onto Squarespace, I was distracted by the ad that popped up on the homepage talking about how Keanu Reeves built his website with Squarespace. I was like, My ass Keanu Reeves built a website! then proceeded to watch two minutes and thirty-two seconds of Keanu sitting in front of a campfire, waxing…

Beauty Junk Round-Up: Maple Holistics Argan Oil Shampoo

Happy 2018! I feel like I’ve heard a lot of people lament about how 2017 was a crazy, hard year with everything going on in the world (just how they lamented 2016 was hard). I’ve got news for ya: it’s not gonna get any better. Things will still be rocky politically, and Kim Jong-Un and…

Beauty Junk Round-Up: Maple Holistics Tea Tree Oil Shampoo

Hello hello hello! Look at me, getting back to blogging on a regular basis! #humblebrag For those of you who used to read That’s What She Said or One Random B, you may know I periodically had a feature called, “Beauty Junk Roundup” where I reviewed various beauty products (makeup, skin care, hair care –…

IT for Thirty-Something Women

Last weekend, my sister and I saw the IT remake. And while I didn’t particularly care for the snooze fest that was the book (it’s called editing, Stephen, ever heard of it?), I thoroughly enjoyed this reboot.  For those of you living under a rock and/or who hadn’t been traumatized by Tim Curry’s Pennywise as…

Wedding Details

I thought I would share a bit about my wedding here, since I’ve been M.I.A. from blogging for years, and when I finally do get back into it, I’m all, “I’m married lolz!” So here’s a bit about what went down, and why we decided to elope.  T and I got engaged back in March,…

Feelin’ 33

Earlier today, a colleague of mine and I got into a discussion about all of the shit that goes south once you hit 30. It was spurred by my decision to abstain from alcohol and sugar after 5p.m. on weekdays and exercising more regularly, because I’ll sleep like butt otherwise. Then I watched the music…

A Life Update

So, I’m back. I feel like I’ve posted a ton of these “I’m back” posts before, and I’m hoping this will be the last one due to regularly scheduled blogging. Basically, I’ve been M.I.A. since I decided to go back to grad school. I’ve checked in here and there, but all but abandoned my passion…
