Tips for Your First Group Run


This summer I’ve been training with a new marathon training group. This is my first time running with groups in about a year and a half and I’ve been enjoying the group setting.

May Blog Stats and Income Report

Welcome to my monthly series where I share my blog stats and income with you. I was inspired to do this because I know of some bigger bloggers (like Pinch of Yum) who share their blog stats and income but I really didn’t see any smaller bloggers (like me! and maybe you!) who do so. I […]

  Recently, K and I packed up our bags and our dog and headed to Charles Town, West Virginia to celebrate one year of marriage. Charles Town is just 90 minutes from DC and it’s home of the super cute Hillbrook Inn, where we set up home base for a few days. The inn was […]

Wineglass Marathon Training Recap Week 2

2015-06-21 08.38.04-1

Well, I made it through another (hot, humid) week of training. Barely. This past week was a bit unusual because I spent the beginning of the week in WV with K, celebrating our anniversary.
