• About Me


    I'm a stay-at-home-mom who, as part of a mid-life challenge, decided to run a marathon for kicks. I didn't plan on it becoming a hobby, but it did. I QUALIFIED FOR BOSTON at my second marathon and slipped into the vortex. Join me as I fulfill my dream of running the marathon majors.

Favorite Things Friday Giveaway

Categories: Giveaways, GU, Running Fuel, Stuff I Love

You’ve probably seen me here or on Facebook talking about fuel. Mostly asking you what flavor of GU you like or telling you what flavor GU I’m digging.

Remember earlier this year when I tested Root Beer, Lemonade Roctane and Salted Watermelon?


For NYCM I alternated between Caramel Macchiato with Salted Caramel. I needed all the energy I could get to fight that ridiculous wind.

I still haven’t gotten my hands on any Peanut Butter/Chocolate GU, but hopefully soon. What better time than the holiday season to share some of my favorite GU with you?

Win It! One lucky reader will win an assortment of GU gels, Chomps, Recovery Brew, Electrolyte Tablets and water bottle.

Humpday Giveaway

Categories: Giveaways, Peanut Butter & Co., Stuff I Love

It’s December, my birthday month (don’t need anymore of those but it beats the alternative, right?) and time to start sharing my favorite things. You know I love me some nut butter. What runner doesn’t? My absolute favorite is The Bee’s Knees from Peanut Butter & Co. It’s the perfect mix of peanuts and honey. So good, I hide it in my private stash, because you know the Caveman has the nasty habit of taking “my” stuff. I love that there are no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils and no high fructose corn syrup involved.
The Bee’s Knees is just one of their amazing flavors. Mighty Maple, Dark Chocolate Dreams and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl are all fantastic too. Check out all the flavors here.

Because the folks at Peanut Butter & Co. rock, they wanted you to have a chance to enjoy some too.

Win It! One lucky reader will win 3 jars, you choose the flavor(s)! of Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter.
