Thanks to the Pineapple Express, which the massive storm that’s been hitting Northern California for the last two days has been named, it’s been raining non stop here for over 24 hours. No flooding in this area and the winds have not been as bad as predicted, so we’ve been lucky! And getting all the […]

Good morning! I’m up early trying to prepare myself for a 7-mile training run while tweaking my running playlists. I saw this 10-minute video on Facebook yesterday and got mesmerized watching it. Philip Wollen does an amazing job of summing up all the issues in the world related to eating meat and how illogical it […]

It’s hot again, triple-digit heat all this week. And it’s getting to poor Skipper who has been crashing froggy-style all over the house.

Thanks to my job, I usually have two and sometimes three smartphones with no pocket options for carrying them. Guys can run in baggy shorts with huge pockets, but we’re lucky if women’s running leggings or skimpy shorts […]

I am sooooo glad tomorrow is Friday and it’s a 3-day romantic Valentine’s weekend because it’s been a long and exhausting week with loads going on at work and me dragging a little from stress. It hasn’t been a stressful week for Skipper, he’s been having a blast. It’s become a ritual for him to […]
