A Foodie Family’s SoCal Adventure: Pizza from Mars & Oceanside Donuts

This week Hannah the Wild and I were out and about thrifting and running some errands. In the middle of our stops tummies were rumbling! We checked in with our list of places to go here in SoCal provided by friends to find we were in the same strip mall as Pizza from Mars. And […]

Marathon Training Week 10

My runs this week have been slow and painful. I have had to pull myself out of focusing on the “I can’t do this” broken record playing in my head. But really…these runs are temporary pain. They take place in a mere blip in the timeline of life. Sure, they all build my body towards […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Checking back in

MCM Training Week 3

The last week in our home. I ran the streets one more time. These beautiful streets of the golf course. They have helped me train through countless races of countless distances. With summer runs that ended jumping in the pool… RAGNAR training runs done in the darkness with friends on the nature trails created by […]
