Just when I thought summer heat was on its way out…it came back! This week has been in the upper 90s with starting humidity in the 90-100 range!


Why can’t fall temps just be here to stay?!

I am not ready to pace in the heat…and humidity! Cool fall temps lead to fall PRs.

I am not on the hunt for a PR this fall..just enjoying the WEATHER when it decides to cooperate 🙂

gym time

On the plus side, they are soon going to be breaking ground on the new gym on the other side of town!

Yeah, it is a long drive (all of 10 minutes) but we are going to see about working out a carpooling situation for the few of us that go to the classes regularly.

bad dogs…

Once the remainder was licked clean, I threw away the container and went out for my run.

Once I returned, there was trash on the floor. My first thought, “Dang it! She got it back out of the trash!…” A little peeved, I walked over to the mess…

Nope, she didn’t get into the trash.

She got into my work bad on the floor and destroyed my new-ish Yumbutter almond butter! AH! I won this container in an Insta giveaway…and I was really enjoying it!!

Have your pets ever destroyed something that you were fond of?? Darn dog…

thought on my run this morning

Similar to “if a tree fell in the woods, did it make a sound?” If a runner fell on a run, did it make a sound? 

Um, yes…probably cussing up a storm!


Notice I didn’t call this a “diet”…

I have been decent about 85/15 eating Paleo for a little while now! I’m glad I have been having success with it.

Lately, I have been eating more grains…and I can tell because my skin has been FREAKING out. I need to be a little more strict for a while and see if it helps.

I was reading about another lady who stopped eating grains and it really helped both with her gut and her skin.

Now, if only I can get the rest of the family on board…then the true temptations might not be around. Oh well. My willpower is pretty weak at the moment…not good.

Does your willpower wax and wane throughout a semi-major lifestyle change?


Well…all I can say is that an awesome sunrise when out for a run (coining the term “runrise”) makes the morning that must better 🙂 Am I right? 


Check out the linkup with Amanda to see what everyone is thinking (out loud) this Thursday!
