5 Things You May Not Know About Me


I'm linking up for the Friday Five 2.0!  This week we're getting to know each other a little better by sharing 5 little known facts about us.

If you've read my blog for a while, you know a little about me... but I bet you didn't know these 5 things:

  1. I'm a lefty... although I throw and bowl right handed, my dad bought my a right handed softball glove, so I had to learn to throw with my right. lefty

  2. I love pink... I also innocently thought the Aerosmith song Pink was about love for that color, until the hubs informed me

  3. I'm married to a carnivore... sometimes that makes dinner planning difficult, sometimes I just don't tell him something is vegan and he doesn't notice.

  4. Speaking of the hubs... we met online, we are an online dating success story - we just celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary. find-love-online-dating-sites

  5. I was a band geek in High School :-) 11049591_10203552306118811_8329448503239700582_n

There you have it... 5 little known facts about me.

I'm linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup!



  1. Ha! I was a band geek, too (flute). I'm right-handed, but am pretty ambidextrous.....I actually bat much better left-handed. There's also a lot of things I just naturally do sweeping and raking...weird, huh!

  2. Hahaha your comment about Aerosmith totally made me LOL!

  3. Fellow band geek here -- clarinet and piano (in the "jazz" band!). I think a lot of the old rock songs had hidden (and not so hidden) meanings. I'm still catching on to some of them.

  4. I played piano until about Jr. High... then got too busy.

  5. I am a lefty as well. I only write with my right and bat. But I throw with my left. When I was younger my dad made sure I was going to continue to throw with my left because he didn't want to buy me the mitt and then I decide to change hands. Guess they were more expensive back then. I still throw with my left to this day.

  6. That is interesting... I had to learn how to write with my right when I was in 1st grade because I broke my left hand, but that skill has disappeared.

  7. Love these!! Pink is awesome! I'm also married to a carnivore, but he loves vegan food fortunately.
    Happy Anniversary! Congrats on 12 awesome years!
    Thanks for sharing these with us =)

2017 Chicago Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my second marathon... the Chicago Marathon. This is my 2017 Chicago Marathon Recap!

The week prior, the hubs decided he didn't want to go to Chicago... citing some pretty lame excuses.  I wasn't too worried about that as I am not afraid to travel on my own.

I flew into Chicago on Friday morning.  The plane from Houston seemed to be full of folks running in the marathon.  I sat by a young couple who were also running (his 1st marathon, her 7th).  After landing up in Chicago, I took the Orange Line into the city and checked into my hotel, then headed back out for some lunch and then to take in the Expo.
The Expo

The Expo was CRAZY! I retrieved my bib, shirt and wandered around for a bit.  I tried shopping in the Nike area, but after I was shoved a couple of times, I lost all interest.  With all the craziness, I decided I needed to find the Goose Island beer bus for a little sample.

I checked out several booths and then headed to the Runners World stage for the cour…

Brazos Bend 50k Recap

On April 7th, I ran my very first 50k at Brazos Bend 50.  The event was a Trail Racing Over Texas race located at Brazos Bend State Park outside of Needville, TX.  This is my Brazos Bend 50k recap.
I had gone into Houston after work to pick up my race packet ahead of time... along with my bib and race shirt, they also had bonus swag, for this race it was Altra Gaiters.  Race day-eve brought me a little visitor.... yup, Aunt Flo decided to come for a stay. This definitely put a little twist in my plans.  I took off work a little early so that I could get dinner at a reasonable hour, my clothes laid out, and to bed early.  My race-day eve fueling was my lucky veggie burger and sweet potato fries at Bella Green.

After some thought I decided to wear my hydration vest to carry necessary supplies instead of my handheld.  Once I got home, I laid out my clothes, got my supplies ready and headed to bed.  My wake-up call was 3am!

It was tough figuring out what to wear.  The forecast cal…

2018 Houston Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my third marathon... the Houston Marathon. This is my 2018 Houston Marathon Recap!

I ran the Houston Marathon last year, it was my very first marathon.  It was such a fun time, I signed up again as soon as early bird entry opened up.
ABB 5k
I chose to run the ABB 5k on the day before the marathon.  I figured since I had to be in Houston to pick up my packet, I might as well use it for my shakeout run.  The temps were mighty chilly that morning.  I bundled up and headed in early to pick up my packet.  After I dropped my bag (and jacket) off at the bag drop, I was very happy to see the convention center was open to wait in.

15 minutes prior to race start, I headed out to use the port-a-cans and line up.  I chose to line up with the 11 minute mile group in an attempt to keep my pace super easy.  They sang the Star Spangled Banner and we were off right on time!

I had to do a bit of bobbing and weaving as there were several walkers who lined up ahead of me.  Within a half mil…
