The Fairest Week In Review: 8/10

Hey guys! Quickie intro this time around; I’m at a conference AND Pat gave me a cold just in time for said conference, so I’m not going to lie: I’m phoning it in a little here. But at least I can tell you this happened: More on that later of course. New week in review format continues with a few minor changes – let me know if you have any thoughts on it! Sunday | ran 4.45 miles on the treadmill in 50 minutes Monday | ran 7.03 miles on the treadmill in 1:10 Tuesday | walked 2.15 miles...

The Fairest Week In Review: 8/04

I’ve mentioned previously that the week in review seems kinda blah without Moon, so today I’m going to try something different. Instead of general chit-chat, I’m going to do a review of the previous week’s workouts. I find myself often reading such entries on the blogs of others, so I figured I’d give it a shot. The roundup will continue as usual. Please let me know what you think! Sunday, July 24¬†| ran 2.07 miles outside in 20 minutes I was at Pat’s brother’s house and didn’t have access to the treadmill, so I braved the great (hot) outdoors...

In Which Jenn Has A Grand Floridian Dream

I had the craziest WDW dream a couple weeks ago! And for once it didn’t involve me missing/almost missing/generally messing up a runDisney race! Okay, so the first thing that’s weird about this dream is that I was staying at the Grand Floridian. This is stange enough, because there’s no way in hell I could afford that, but it gets weirder: I was there with my parents. My parents would NEVER drop that kind of money on a hotel regardless of their financial situation, and also, their interest in WDW is cursory at best (although I’m working on it...

In Which Jenn Tries The Short Run

This week marked two strange runs for me. Indeed, these runs were of a style I almost never employ outside of mitigating circumstances. I’m talking about… THE TWO MILE RUN. I rarely do a short run outside of a taper or vacation. Less than five, maybe¬†four miles is extremely unusual for me. Most of my runs are in the 9-10 mile area. But when dogsitting in another town meant I had no treadmill access, I had no choice but to run outside during a week with temperatures inching close to 100 degrees. And I forgot my headphones. No music....
