Last week I broke up with Phil, my Garmin 405. We had been together for over two years but I’ll be the first to admit that our relationship was never healthy. My main complaint with Phil was that he was … Continue reading
This morning I ran a gnarly gnarly trail marathon. This evening I ate my weight in the best of Portland pizza, demolished an old fashioned glazed donut and several (six) Newman’s Ginger-O’s. Now I am sitting here with a happy … Continue reading
Every runner needs a source of motivation. It’s what makes us put on our shoes when it’s cold out and it’s what makes you run the last mile instead of shuffling it in. Recently my motivation has been a tiny … Continue reading
The Great Comeback of 2010 is on! Or as my mom told me today on the phone. “My fiesty footed fearless Heatherbeth is back!” Aw, Mom you’re so cute. Today’s race was my sixth half marathon. Unlike other races in … Continue reading

I have an odd habit of sneaking looks into other people’s fridges, cupboards and into their shopping carts at the grocery store. Yes, I know it’s strange, but I’m curious to see what other people eat on a daily basis. … Continue reading
One of my favorite places to people watch is the grocery store. I intentionally steer clear of the self check-out lines so that I can catch glimpses of what other kinds of food people are buying. I don’t own a … Continue reading
Last Sunday I competed in a local 10K fun run and was so damn proud of myself. All last week I couldn’t decide if I should even run the race. I’d never been to Gresham. I wasn’t feeling confident in … Continue reading
I don’t even have a great excuse for not blogging. Maybe it’s all the running I’ve been doing? Anyway, I’ll be updating soon – promise!
