90 Days to Thanksgiving

Where, oh where, has Angela been?  Around and busy.  What else can I say?  I wasn’t as Nicely Settled In as I claimed in my last post.  Just the next week, my commute turned into chaos and I realized half my clothing essentials were still packed!  But I am getting there slowly.  I am starting to get a feel for routine, and it is relieving

Nicely Settled In!

Hello everyone! This past week was a whirlwind! Monday wasn’t so bad but the rest of the week was crazy!

Monday, I got home from work a little “early” and decided to head out for a quick run before dinner. It felt SO REFRESHING! In the sweating-your-butt-off kind of way. I only ran for 15 minutes, 13 minutes for a mile, but it felt good

Running in Nature

Yesterday was a day full of boring tasks:

I washed some dishes I did laundry I wrote a blog I hunted for jobs online I went for a run I finished reading my book

That’s pretty much it! I need more interesting days, I feel like I am boring myself to tears. I even read a part of a physics book yesterday for some mental

Starting Over Running Style

Now that school is out, I have plenty of time to get fit, right? But, like most people, I feel a little paralyzed without a plan. I was also feeling overwhelmed by the options to get fit. Do I use my workout DVDs? Do I just run a whole lot? Where do I start?

Finally, I decided I really like to run and would like

Review: Newton Fate Running Shoes

I have actually been a long time fan of Newton Running, not just because it is named after a physicist

I originally heard of them when I read this article in Runner’s World Magazine. I was completely intrigued by their ideas and kept a look out for the sneakers (I even called nearby running shops but no one had them). Finally, I saw them

Broad Street Run 2015

This past weekend was the 36th annual Blue Cross Broad Street Run! I ran this race in 2010 and 2011, back when it was 10,000 people smaller and a bit simpler.

2010

2011

You could just register for the event back then and show up on race day. After, in 2012, it sold out in 5 hours, they went to a

April Fool’s Day Fool’s Challenge 7K & Half Marathon

I ran 17.45 miles this weekend.

Technically it was a run/walk but still, I can’t believe it ! I’m not even that sore surprisingly. But more on that later…

This weekend, I ran the Atlantic City April Fool’s Day Fool’s Challenge which consisted of a 7K on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday. There was also the option to do the Jester’s Challenge

Slushy Run

Why on earth did I see this is my driveway this morning and think “looks like a good day for a run!”??

I think it was the lure of the 37º showing on my weather app. I drove 1 town over to see if they had plowed their bike pike like they usually do and all was good! There were only a few sections
