In Which Jenn Lives In Puerto Rico Now

¡Qué sorpresa! I moved to Puerto Rico! Yep, Pat got a job here and after much planning and packing and a very traumatic plane ride for the kitties, we are now San Juan locals. Luckily we had an assist from the federal government (and how often can you say that these days?). Obviously this will have reverberating life consequences. I need to properly learn Spanish, for one – no me recuerdo mucho español de mi escuela. I’m also going to have learn to drive LIKE A MANIAC. And while I’m teleworking with my old job for now, I may ultimately...

The Fairest Week In Review (Of Sorts): 3/27

Oh boy. Okay. I’m in the middle of a pretty big move (more on that next week), and like 90% of my stuff is gone and I’m sitting on an air mattress nervously eyeing two cats who are currently sleeping angelically but THEY BETTER NOT PULL OUT THEIR CLAWS. Please observing paws containing dainty claws. Also while I was sweeping the apartment for inspection I got a bunch of dust in my lungs and it triggered some mildly asthma which really wasn’t too terrible except it gave me a cough that made it SUPER hard to sleep and most...

In Which Moon Makes Her Move

GUYS GUYS GUYS you’ll never guess who we’re welcoming back today! MOON IS HERE! Hellooo! I’ve been off the map for a long time! In the event that anyone is interested in my life pertaining to running these past months, I’m sad to say that I’ve fallen out of my routine. Routines are so nice. Structure is so nice. Since 2009, I’ve worked really hard to establish a running routine. I’ve had some minor upsets, but I don’t think I’ve ever gone as long as I have this past year without running. Now that it’s been so long since...

The Fairest Week In Review: 3/24

JENN: Happy Marine Corps Marathon Lottery Entry Opening Day! May we all make it! In less potentially fun news… MOON: My boyfriend was placed in a hospital (as a doctor, not a patient, at least) so I’m moving to Boston. ;-; JENN: Which is sad because WHAT WILL I DO WITHOUT CLOSE MOON PROXIMITY? But then of course I hear Boston’s pretty cool. They have that marathon that’s supposed to be good. MOON: I’m sorry, but all positive things about the city are out of my reach right now. I’m bummed. Super bummed. JENN: You won’t be that far! I’ll visit you! MOON: I only live...

In Which Jenn Is Sick As A Dog, Probably

Oh my God, guys. What a mess. No, no. That’s needlessly melodramatic. Everything’s fine. I’m fine. I’m just a) sick as a dog assuming a dog is just sick enough to be miserable but not sick enough to get out of anything and b) stressed because c) I’m in the final throes of moving and ACK GOTTA GET ALL MY STUFF OUT GOTTA CLEAN FOR INSPECTION HELP HELP HELP. So. Yeah. Hence “Giveaway Week” turning into “Giveaway Day.” But never fear! I still have that other giveaway in the chute and will chuck it at your faces next week....

The Fairest Week In Review: Just The Roundup Edition, 7/09

Hi! As you may know, Moon moved into a new apartment last week, and she’s still sorting through the wreckage that inevitably comes with transferring a boyfriend, cat, and all one’s possessions across town in the space of a few days. As such, we’re skipping the full week in review experience for this week and heading straight for the roundup. Don’t worry, these guys’ll keep you company! – Running Through the Castle ponders DFL. – Need to work out in the Valley of silence? Peanut Butter Fingers has got you covered. – Theme Park Insider has an interesting take...

The Fairest Week In Review: 6/30

JENN: Did you get any runs in last week? MOON: Nope. But this is my LAST week of no running. Next Sunday I’ll be a gym member again. Super excited. How were your runs this week? JENN: They were perfectly okay but nothing inspiring. I got done what I wanted done – including a 4+ miles speed run on Friday – but there was none of the proverbial pep in my step. Ah well – status quo is better than nothing at all! MOON: Mmhmm! Doing better than me. XD JENN: Awww. Well, you’re doing exciting life things! MOON: Haha, I supposeeeeee. I miss running, though. Ah,...

The Fairest Week In Review: 3/31

JENN: How was your week? Did you run at all? MOON: Ja! I had two pretty good runs and yesterday I experienced a slow, excruciating run. JENN: Oh, those are always good times. Outside or on the treadmill? MOON: Ha, treadmill. The weather still plays with us. JENN: So it does. I demand 60 degrees morning minimum or nice outdoor dice. MOON: If the weather is still stupid by Cherry Blossom Run, I will be the saddest runner there. I mean, it SNOWED on Saturday. JENN: Did it? Missed that. But it was certainly cold. It can’t possibly be worse than the WDW 5K – it...
