Unfortunately, my work training ran over today, so lunch consisted of 8 rolls of smarties from their candy bowl. I was sooo hangry when I got home. (I’d have snuck in a snack if I’d have known it would have went over lunch). You know those candies that you licked the stick and dipped it in the powder, the sticks were white. Lick-a-Stiks I think they were called. I didn’t care for the sugary powder but I could eat those sticks all day long. Seriously the best. Oddly, the taste reminds me of how the scratch n sniff Smurf stickers used to smell. I think it was the Smurf ones. I probably sound weird, but someone out there has to be able to confirm this.


My sentence for the day: First post-marathon run today! Only 3 miles, but I brought my dog and it felt great. :) I do not like Swedish Fish at all, and I cannot understand why people like it! :) I went to a lunch meeting today and they provided Jimmy Johns, so I had a vegetarian sub. And a cookie!


Only ran 4 miles today, but at least I got a run in today. Thanks for all your posts. Such an encouragement to me to keep running. I have a daughter just a little younger than yours. So fun! Also, are those really the ab work outs you do?


I have a few other that I do but my coach had me doing 8 minute abs forever ago (and sometimes 2 times in a row) and I have kept doing it. I’ll add more of the ab workouts that I do asap! Hope you are having a beautiful day and YAY for getting miles in today! Keep on running and enjoy the rest of your week:)


I bet your house smelled amazing cooking those apples.

I made my knock off version of Cubby’s buffalo chicken salad for my lunch today, but with a lot more lettuce ;)

I will have to agree with Andrew – chocolate covered gummy bears = no bueno. I don’t really even like them without chocolate. Ross likes Necco wafers though and we have somehow still managed to be married 12 years. I don’t know how. I must be a saint.

Homemade oreo cookie are the best.

What are abs? (please refer to my sentence above).


Great article. Amazing pictures. Fun reading it. Thank you for sharing with us.


I love DOTS! Especially when they’re frozen. Nobody else seems to like them which is so bizarre to me.
