I Am A Runner

lyndarun

Since the kids have been back in school, my early morning 5:30 a.m. run schedule has been moved to the 9:00 a.m. run schedule.  I knew this was going to happen, I actually caught myself coming up with excuses as to why this would suck {okay maybe a bit harsh, but I was bummed out}.  I knew that the later the morning got, I would have more reasons to talk my way out of going.  I would get caught up on my computer, posting on facebook, tweeting, reading fellow bloggers, going through both email Continue Reading...

The Ulitmate Coffee Date 5

2014-07-11 22.12.57

Good Morning and thank you for joining us for coffee and chat time. Let's dish shall we?  If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I am getting ready for my next half marathon.  I have two options coming up quickly one in September {the Lake Tahoe Marathon} and one in November {the Napa Valley Harvest Half Marathon}.  I assume I could pull them both off, but running in Lake Tahoe by September seems a bit aggressive, since I would be running in a different altitude and Continue Reading...

I am so super jazzed to be sharing the latest with you.  Okay listen, I am not the most tech savy gal out there and I am NOT really into gadgets or the newest and latest {I still have my Samsung Galaxy S 2 and the original IPod shuffle} so yeah, I am sort of behind.  However, I am up to speed with the app Runtastic Orbit and the Me App.   Thanks to Fit Approach and Runtastic who so kindly reached out and sent me this newest gadget.  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, as with most new things that Continue Reading...

We all have heard of it, we have googled it, read about, researched it.  Wondered why anyone would do it, thought about it, questioned it, tried to understand it.  Well, we are DOING IT ... Paleo.  The "Caveman Diet".  My hubby could not have been more thrilled when I happily announced to him that WE were "going Paleo for two weeks" and it would "be fun". Sure we eat very healthy, and we are aware of what we are shopping for, we prepare all of our meals, snacks, here at home.  But we were not Continue Reading...

Getting Away In Healdsburg

2014-07-03 07.10.15

We are smack in the middle of summer and I don't know about you, but this has been all about keeping busy right near our own home.  With baseball season going long this year and Noah starting football camp 4 weeks ago, it made it a bit difficult to get away.  Okay, we could have if we wanted to, but being in the playoffs was a big deal for us and Noah is starting is Freshman year this August and football camp is key {especially as a newbie}.  So, this means making the best of what is near Continue Reading...

Have You Tried Surf Set?

2014-06-20 06.52.26

I am always saying we need to "step out of our comfort zones and just try new things".  Well I put my words to the test last month when I attended the Fit Approach  Summer Solstice  event at Sweat Republic  in San Francisco. The event was introducing a  Surf Set class.  When I saw that my fellow "sweat pink" gurus were putting this on, I had to attend.  I love my sweat pink sistas  and am always up for meeting them whenever possible. ♥ First thing first, I had to make sure my hubby got Continue Reading...
