Let’s Get Serious

I’m going to begin by listing out why I prefer to workout/run in the morning. I know. There are already 361,286,895 posts out there like this. This has a point though, just bear with me. 1. I get it done and out of the way 2. It’s a great feeling to have worked out before … Continue reading

Mundane Mandi

Sometimes I think I should rename this blog to Mundane Mandi. I seriously do not lead an exciting life. Unless you consider having an unhealthy obsession with Asian food (sushi, in particular) and running in the mornings as exciting. I love how about 80.435% of my posts begin with or contain the words, “intend” and … Continue reading

I Am A Rugged Manaic

Yesterday I did it. I did the Rugged Maniac 5k! I had a lot more fun than I thought I would, to be honest… I’m usually such a weenie and failure, I thought I would suck ass at this. I only skipped two obstacles: the huge logs to jump on/over and the islands, because I … Continue reading

Let’s Catch Up

Guess who would be fired if blogging was a job at this point? This girl. Well, probably not. The reason I haven’t logged anything lately is because of being busy with real work and life stuff. Chyeah, I actually have a semi-social life. I rounded out last weeks running with 17 miles and 3 miles … Continue reading

Okay, New Plan

Just Run

If you are a runner, it doesn’t matter how far or how fast. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run. – John Bingham I love this quote. … Continue reading

Three Cheers for New Stuff!

Hip-hip-hooray! Hip-hip-hooray! Hip-hip-hooray! I love getting new stuff. Last week, I got my SPIbelt in the mail and I was so excited to use it! I loved the way it worked. As promised it didn’t move…and its cute. Duh. Cute things always work better. See, told you its cute. I got home from work yesterday … Continue reading

Running and Weights?

So remember in my last post I ended saying that I was going to run maybe 3 miles and do some cross training. Well I ended up doing 5 miles and lifted some weights. Hey the weight lifting counts as cross training, right? I went home feeling great..as if I had swag. That just makes … Continue reading
