Where We Would Run

As I mentioned previously - and took way too long to put together - I wanted to take you all on a run (or walk) with me. The idea came from a post that Amanda (aka Miss Zippy) had done, and I just loved the idea, loved reading the other posts that came out of that idea as well.

So, here's where we'd go. We'd start off up hill, get that part out of the way first, well, until the return from the river, but I might not mention that part ;-)


Hopefully we'd have a beautiful sunrise as well. Even if we didn't, I'm sure we'd have a great run or walk though. If it was the first time we were meeting, it'd be impossible not to get lost in conversation. We do have some gorgeous architecture in the area, so I'd try to point that out.


And if you were new to the area, I'd want to take you up closer to the governor's mansion. It's a really nice section of the neighborhood with some of my favorite homes. 



I would definitely take you on a route that got us down near the river. Whether you're a fan of Bill Clinton or not, I'd definitely want to take you down near the Clinton Library. It's a really pretty area, lots of trees, great views, and views of the river of course.



The River Market area is full of restaurants, a few shops, some new construction as well. We'd end up having to make the ascent back home. We'd likely stop at this intersection, somehow we always end up stopping here. But sometimes, it's nice having to stop to catch your breath, especially when you're making the climb back home at the end of a run.


And there you have it. Our route together. Want to join me?

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Reintroducing Myself

We'll begin with the basics. I'm Heather. I started this blog in 2009 with the intent of sharing my love of exercise and healthy eating (and a little bit of personal stuff of course). I blogged, and blogged and blogged my heart out. Every.Single.Day.

I forgot how to sit down to eat without a) typing it up in the blog and b) photographing it. We didn't have hot meals for quite some time I might add. I was doing it all wrong of course. But, at the time, I loved it. I loved sharing my ideas for healthy, tasty, vegetarian foods.

Blogging also gave me an outlet to share my passion for exercise - lifting weights, HIIT workouts, running, even following along to DVDs at home. It was probably one of the boosts I needed to finally pursue my quiet goal of becoming a certified personal trainer.

My blogging style began to shift. My focus was shifting. My desire was shifting. The less I blogged, the more time I had. The more I felt I could breathe. I wasn't comparing my food to othe…
