Color Me Rad… {sneak peek}

Last weekend I ran a race…and got colored corn starch thrown at me! Eventually I’ll get around to telling the whole story and I might even be able to find some GoPro footage that isn’t puke inducing. For now you’ll have to settle for a few photos… {group photo kidnapped from Lena!} If you really want to read about the race you can check out Lynne’s recap – she had an experience very similar to mine. Or take a peek at Heather’s recap who had much better luck than I did! … [Click Here For the Full Story]

Panerathon 10…or 5K!

This past weekend I ran a race. I actually ran hard for this race and it hurt. Quite a bit. This was my first actual “race” where I ran with a goal since the marathon in May. Running hard was not my plan but I tend to make impulse decisions. The Panerathon 10K was on my calendar for a few months. I started out with high hopes for the 10K but eventually I settled with having just a fun, easy run that ended with free Panera food. Well, until race day.  You see, Erin, the speedster behind EfoRunner, was also running the race. Emphasis on the speedster, no emphasis on my ability to resist a challenge. Now I know I’m not nearly as fast as she is but being around a competitive, fast runner does something to a person. It … [Click Here For the Full Story]

{Fargo Marathon} …internet strangers + steamy 5K

Thursday’s Workout Wanda: Not a darn thing, just a day of legit laziness! I’ve taken a week to digest everything and it all still feels like a jumbled mess in my tiny brain. I really want to be able to remember this entire experience myself – which I am already failing to do – so this here is going to be a lame attempt to write it all out when my head and hands can’t agree. Enjoy, or something like that. After our farm visit and finally meeting Lisa we got back on the road to finish up our drive to Fargo. The plan was to arrive by 4pm, change into 5K walking clothes and then head to the expo. Much to my surprise that plan happened almost exactly. That never happens for me, I’m always late for everything, just … [Click Here For the Full Story]

That Dam Run–Half Marathon {recap}

Workout Wanda: A 2 mile warm up in 19:52 + That Dam Run half marathon in 2:10:06! I got to sleep in this morning. It was awesome. I’m not saying the alarm didn’t get snoozed for 20 minutes but 6:21am is far better than 4:21am! I am seriously loving these 10am race starts. Not sure what I’m going to do for the Get Lucky 21K when I have to be up, at ‘em and driving at 3am – it might kill me. I got up, got myself put together, ate breakfast and headed out the door. The race was only 15 miles away but I wanted to get there early enough to throw down a solid warm up before it started. I wasn’t planning on actually racing the race…instead it was going to be part of a 15 mile long … [Click Here For the Full Story]

A half marathon?! Sure…why not?!

Workout Wanda: A 3 mile run with Chris biking along…still slow but I didn’t want to cut my legs off at any point, I consider that an achievement. I’m going to apologize in advance…actually, nevermind. No apologies. This is going to be a random post and I take back the almost apology because my life is pretty random in general and what I life is what you get. {luck you…} ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies really are as good as they look. Like most everyone out there I have seen the photos of the Oreo surrounded by a gooey chocolate chip cookie. The other day when I wandered through the snack aisle I grabbed a package of Oreos with the intention of creating these cookies. Boom. I totally did it. I used my go to chocolate chip cookie … [Click Here For the Full Story]
