W80: The Brussels Sprout Verdict

 Even during the holidays, I am constantly looking for challenges.
The whole idea of this blog is to push myself to try new things.

It's important that I give everything a fair chance
before deciding it's not for me...

even if that "thing" is a Brussels sprout...

W79: Playing Tourist...and More Running

Sometimes I get so bummed out about not being able to take trips due to limited funds or vacation time that I completely forget about exploring places nearby.  This week David and I planned a long overdue date night and tried a new local restaurant called Miga.

W77: Running, man...

Running is hard.

Despite completing six races this year, I still don't consider myself a runner...

When I saw the Runner's World holiday run streak on Facebook, I knew it was a challenge that I simply could not pass up.  One mile each day from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day?!  Yikes...

But I ran that first day (which I happen to believe was the hardest of all since it was freaking Thanksgiving!) and I have forced myself to get those miles in every day since.

Let's take a look at my progress so far!
