Run for the dream..just don’t run out of gas!

This past Sunday I completed my third half marathon and the only one I have attempted in warm weather.  The weather and Vitamin P ( procrastination) are the two biggest obstacles to my running. I always come away  from these races with some good insights, a few chuckles and some new ( although often temporary) […]

The Worst Excuse Yet for Not Exercising..but funny!

I’ve heard a lot of excuses for not exercising and I’ve come up with many on my own.  Some of the excuses are valid, others borderline on “the dog ate my homework” “the dog ate my running clothes, shoes, water bottle..”  Wait , judging from the puppies I have had that one might actually be […]

If I rock the bike, why not the run?

I hate being fooled.  I especially hate it when I do it to myself.  Getting my bike set up with the bike trainer and actually enjoying training inside was such a surprise to me.  I loved it.  So much so I slacked off on my running.  I figured that if I was doing all this […]

Let’s play “Where is Jenn?” on her Virtual Tri to Florida aka the UNamazing Race

I think it might be easier to find Waldo than to find me.  Trying to keep all my plates spinning in the air has been quite a challenge.  This virtual tri is quite the opposite of the Amazing Race.  The only amazing thing about it is that I am still determined to do it. Hit […]

My life as a sitcom: Couponing at its worst!

Well extreme couponing has taken on a new meaning in our house.  I skillfully kept my husband from seeing the show of the same name for many months. My biggest fear was that he would see it and being the lover of a great deal I would soon be tasked with clipping coupons, looking for […]

Asking for a do over as I begin again on my virtual triathlon

Well I had good intentions of starting my virtual triathlon from Virginia to Florida  on Jan 14th.  Well as they say: Sh*&t Stuff happens, like life. Also had good intentions of posting my progress on a weekly basis.  (see above) Wish I could get a do over but lately I have been like a dog […]

Join me as I Virtually Tri my way to Florida!

As I write this I am  mourning the loss of the perfect weather we were promised for this past week-end and did not get.  All week long the weather guessers kept saying it was going to be 70 degrees on Saturday and Sunday.  Even for Virginia that is unusual. I pictured myself running and biking […]

My life as a sitcom…new ways not to shower!

I thought having two guys that worked out and all their smelly work out clothes had pretty much indoctrinated me to the world of manly smells. Add on the experience of three pre-teens who thought showering was optional and I claimed to be a smell expert.   Out of 2 daughters and  a son I […]

Auto correct, spell check and still the typos continue..enjoy all of mine :)

A dear friend of mine, Sherra has a wonderful weekly blog post called  Typo Tuesday at her website: Sherralifelesson.com She has an eye for typos and most are fall down on the floor funny. My latest favorite was found on a restaurant menu that stated: Pan fried Tilapia served over oven roasted tomato sauce on […]

Let’s Tri this again!

If you are a regular reader of this blog you may be wondering why the blog posts lately have not mentioned one thing about triathlons. Me too! It has been a season of fighting myself in regards to triathlons  and actually any kind of training. I had a great intentions of doing my usual tri’s […]
