Home Sweet Home

After a solid 8 days in paradise

I am back at home trying to get reacquainted with the real world. You know, the one where I have responsibility and do not get to lay out all day. I don’t quite remember where I work or what my job is but I am pretty sure I have to show up tomorrow. Although vacay is officially over there are some perks to being back home.

My two favorite little ones loving their Hawaiian hurricane popcorn.Ā 

Cooking a pot of sauce. I am not a meat eater but this is the exception to the rule! There is nothing like it. Nothing. So blessed to have grown up in an Italian family.

Baking cookies. I came back from vacation down 2 pounds so that alone justifies these babies.


Because that is what this blog is about right? Sadly it hasn’t happened in a week now. After the Warrior Challenge I figured I would take a few days off and just crosstrain. A few days turned into I didn’t run the rest of the time in Hawaii. Oooopppsssss. I planned on getting back on track YESTERDAY and then the whole time change thing happened. It is crazy how wacky 3 hours can be! Buuttttttt this is rest is good for my achilles right? It is mostly sore when I wake up in the morning and then fades away. I feel like I am ready for a good long run but will start off slow with low mileage tomorrow. Ā 

In AWESOME news I was selected to be a Nike Product Tester! Yeehhhaaawwwww! I am super excited about this šŸ™‚ Maybe it’s a sign that I should be going up to San Fran in a few weeks to run the Nike Women’s Marathon?? Hmmmmmmmm. Something to think about šŸ™‚

Fall Is Here

And I see a giveaway in our future…

  1. What is a Nike tester? I got an email last week with two codes to run the Nike half or full. I thought about it. There are $49 flights up Sat morning but flights were expensive coming home. I am torn. Hmmm.

    1. I will have not yet released products sent to me to run in and do surveys. Unfortunately no pics of the goods allowed (totally understood) but at least when something is released I will then be able to discuss/review for you all! YEAH!

      I got the code too but the last minute flights are expensive! What happened to $39 each way in Cali?!? LAME!

  2. Sweet a Nike product tester!!! How awesome!! And I’m all for a giveaway!

    I bet you are loving being back with the cuties! And that sauce looks awesome! You dropped 2 pounds on your vacation… who does that?! Great job! I’m sure the rest is exactly what your achilles need… Hopefully when you’re on them again they will love you for it and not hurt anymore! šŸ™‚ (Wow… I realize those comments were all over the map with no segues… sorry. )
