Get Lucky 7K 7

I am a runner. It has taken me a long time to say those four words. Even after taking far too long of a break from running, I can still call myself a runner. When I look back at this time last year, I was struggling to run for 5 minutes straight. It hurt, my… Read More


It’s cold out. I’ll run tomorrow. It was a long day. I’ll run tomorrow. I have too much to do. I’ll run tomorrow. I am tired. I’ll run tomorrow. I sat on the couch tonight, making every single excuse I could think of NOT to run. It was already 8:15 and I needed to start… Read More


As I sit here to write this post I think it is only appropriate to start with the truth. That 9.3 mile race was one of the hardest things I have ever, EVER, done outside of childbirth. I had trained strategically for this race, I had built up my miles slowly to prevent injury…BUT the… Read More


Last Friday afternoon I wsoke up to a crazy busy day. I knew I had to stay on schedule to get everywhere I needed to be that day. I also knew that I had a 7 mile run hanging over my head that had to be done Friday, Saturday or Sunday. I was running a… Read More

This afternoon as I was thinking back on my lunchtime run I was replaying a scene in my head.  One of my co-workers was at the gym and when I finished my run said, “How many today?” My response was, “Just 2 miles, today was my easy day.” I keep thinking about my response… I… Read More


Ready for another healthy week in the Thue house. It is a little quieter week this week for everyone so hopefully we can have a few more meals where everyone is at the table at the same time. I went grocery shopping and my cart had a huge personality conflict. I am trying to slowly… Read More


So the challenge has been over for a week. I am done drinking meal replacement shakes for breakfast. I still start my morning with Spark because it is a great refreshing drink to get me going. I am limiting my dairy, not drinking soda and staying away from dessert. I still have cauliflower, broccoli, etc.… Read More


So I made it past Day 24 of my challenge. With very few little cheats. I had a little piece of cake to celebrate my Dad’s 69th Birthday and I did end up eating a hot dog at the concession stand on Day 24 because I was in a hurry and starving. But, no alcohol,… Read More
