Disney Princess Half Marathon – Escape from Chiberia

Where's the most magical place on earth? Why, I do believe it's Disney World! My best friend, T, and I ran the Disney Princess Half Marathon this past weekend, and I'm so glad we planned to run this race together.

Chicago Half Marathon

This Sunday I completed my third Chicago Half Marathon! This race has a special place in my heart because it was my very first half marathon in 2011. Since then I've completed six half-marathons, and I'm totally hooked. I've learned that I prefer smaller races with fewer participants, but since this half is held on Chicago's… Continue reading Chicago Half Marathon

Ch-Ch-Changes

This summer has been a time of transition. With my amazing husband's encouragement and support, I quit my established career to pursue my dreams. I like to call it my quarter-life-crisis...and it happened right on time, just months after my 25th birthday.

Here are some highlights from Days… Continue reading #100HappyDays: Days 76-100

Dog Park Exploration

Recently I've discovered the beauty of the off-leash dog park. I'm so glad to live in DuPage County with its six off-leash parks. Millie's finally had all of her required shots, and now that we have our dog park permit we're free to roam the trails. We've visited the Blackwell Forest Preserve twice now, which is good for… Continue reading Dog Park Exploration

Running Central Park

Last weekend we surprised Hubs' dad in NYC for a belated Father's Day weekend. His girlfriend organized the whole thing, including Hubs' brother and his wife joining too. What a sweetheart! We started the weekend off with a Yankees game. The Yankees won with a home run in the bottom of the ninth with two outs.… Continue reading Running Central Park

I'm thrilled to have been nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award by Rob at Weight2Lose2013. How exciting!
