The Ultimate Coffee Date June

Good morning welcome to another weekend of coffee and chat.  Come join us and link up your coffee related post and make sure to visit Deborah and Coco. If we were having coffee, I would tell you  that I am actually out very early this morning participating in a training run for my up-coming Napa Valley Zooma half marathon.  I am hoping to take some time off my last year’s race and am looking so forward to running again this year.  If you ever get a chance to run in the Napa Valley I suggest you do so.  What a fabulous place to spend a long weekend, eat amazing food, drink fabulous wine and run. If we were having coffee, I would tell you  that the kids are officially out of school and summer vacation is on.  We have our vacation planned and can’t wait to spend some time in…  Read More…

A Day in the Life …

Well so much for sticking to the task on hand.  I had planned on blogging more regularly at the start of this new year and as I see, I am failing at this already.  I am however, keeping on task with my workouts {bringing me back to the first problem, blogging} as I wanted to track my progress via blogging and stay connected and motivated, all while hopefully inspiring others out there as they inspire me. Bringing us up to date with this latest post thanks to Katie and her blog.  The Day in the Life … I love this link up and am enjoying working my way through reading about fellow moms, fitness fanatics and women just like myself.  We all have different lifestyles, yet we are all very similar.  Just getting through each day the best we can and taking care of our family and ourselves at the…  Read More…

The Ulitmate Coffee Date 5

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 would have many hills.  I guess I could pull them both off, but that might be a bit nuts.  Make sure to check back here next week as I have discount codes for both of these races.  You never know, maybe you or some friends might want to make a trip out this way and run them. ♥ If we…  Read More…

The Ultimate Coffee Date #4

Good morning, happy Saturday and July!  Wow, this year is really moving fast for me.  I was just in the car this last week with the family and said to my hubby {just randomly} that Christmas was only five months away.  Okay, that’s enough of that, let’s get down to business and take some time to sit and catch up.  Let’s have coffee ♥ If we were having coffee, I would tell you that … I completed my first half marathon {finally} and I could not be more excited to do my next one.  I could just still be on cloud nine and just have not realized how crazy I am to want to do another. LOL If we were having coffee, I would tell you that … We decided to do a “staycation” last week and took the kids up to Healdsburg for a getaway.  About an hour north…  Read More…
