Happy New Year!

What a wonderful New Years Eve! Now that all the festivities are over and the family and friends have headed home, school is approaching quickly. It blows my mind that this is my last semester of undergrad.

I absolutely love Christmas and I’m sad it came and went so quickly. The sad thought of taking the tree down and saying goodbye to all the Christmas treats is sad.

In the midst of all the festivities, I have been crafting!

For $0.75 I took this shelf and revamped it.

I just bought some scrapbook paper from Michaels and decoupage-d it to the backboard. We will gorilla glue it back sometime today.

Another project I will be constructing with my dad is a bib hanger and medal hanger for my future half marathon running bibs and medals. You have no idea how excited I am that 2013 will be the start of my road race career come May and the ability to travel over the United States to run half marathons and 5k’s! I do plan on attempting a marathon, but I will save that for 2014 probably!

Currently I am reading: Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run

Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run


I have always been fascinated with ultramarathons, starting with Bart Yasso’s My Life on the Run and then followed by Dean Karnazes 50/50 and Ultramarathon Man. Next was Pam reed and her book The Extra Mile: One Woman’s Personal Journey to Ultra-Running Greatness.

I have made it one chapter in Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run, so far and it’s already interesting.

I have also become addicted to Rocco Dispirito’s Eat This Now book collection. I have already purchased the Eat This Now Diet that I found extremely cheap and then rented the others from the local library to see if I want to buy them. The answer is YES! I look forward to trying the recipes and posting them for you all!


Hope everyone had a fabulous New Year!
