Cheering on Boston

On Monday, I celebrated the 123rd Boston Marathon by wearing my 2010 Boston hoodie. I had the TV on in the background so my clients and I could keep an eye on the race, but by the time the elite runners were finishing, I’d driven to train clients at another location and they had 70’s music playing on the gym TV. I recorded the race to watch later, but have yet to find time…


Light at the End of the Tunnel

Our master bath remodel is 90% finished and we’ve moved back into the master suite (if I wasn’t with clients this past week, I was either cleaning or moving stuff back into our bedroom and bathroom). I’m hoping that the mirrors will be installed this week and the final punch list items will be addressed. The most notable punch list item is the reversal of the hot/cold pipes to the shower faucet – something that caused a major shock on that first shower!

To say that this remodel has been a stressor for me is an understatement. I consider myself a relatively calm person; however, I’ve fallen into fits of sobbing on more than one occasion as this project extended much longer than expected and left our house in chaos. I’m happy to say that things are close to back to normal and I’m hopeful that life can settle down a little moving forward.


My Favorite Picture from the Week

Bill took last week off from work to complete some projects around the house; however, on Wednesday, he treated himself to a beautiful ride along the Potomac on the Mount Vernon Trail. This is just one of many gorgeous pictures he captured, but it’s my favorite and I had to share!


Easter with our Family

Our family celebrated Easter together yesterday afternoon, and we were thrilled that in addition to both of our sons, our daughter-in-law, our son’s girlfriend, and Pablo; Bill’s sister and her husband were able to join us as well. Pablo loved his Easter basket and immediately sniffed out his treats in the plastic eggs!


Injury Update

Sooo, the earliest appointment I could get with my spine doctor to go over my MRI results is May 15th…


And Now on to a RunDown of this Past Week’s Workouts…



Once again, my mileage total hit 16 for the week. All runs were solo, but at least Saturday’s was in the daylight so I could enjoy the beautiful scenery in our neighborhood!



I failed to find time for a single ride, not even a 5-miler. With our Bike NY Five Boro Bike Tour two weeks from today, I need to find time to get outside on my bike!


Strength Training

I will always do everything in my power to find time to lift, even if I have to do it at 5 AM…



I barely found time to get in three yoga sessions, but cobra pose has become part of my daily routine right after I get up.


It’s on the Blog

In case you skipped checking in on my blog this past week, here’s what you missed…


In addition to the workouts I mentioned above, here’s a complete rundown of my workouts from this past week (completed mostly in our home gym)…


  • Questions:
  • If you celebrate Easter or Passover, were you able to celebrate with family?
  • What are stressors for you?
  • Did you race this weekend?


And that’s my run down… Have a great week!
