I Hear Portland is a Nice Place to Visit

No running or XT for me yesterday. I had three miles on the schedule, but instead I had two tacos and then went to bed early. I was sooo tired!

I know I wrote about the Portland Marathon a few days ago and then didn’t say whether I registered or not. I did not register… but I AM going to be running it!!!


Adam told me yesterday that he is going to buy me an entry for Christmas! He also told me that I better do my speed work because he doesn’t want to wait approximately 12 hours for me at the finish line! I really hope I can prevent that from happening ; )

All joking aside, I am not taking this lightly. I know that registering for my first marathon is a big responsibility and I have A LOT of work ahead of me.

Aside from running, I have been pretty busy lately because of THIS:


Those little packages are candles, candles, candles.

I am so grateful and THRILLED that people are buying my candles. It’s really fun hearing back from happy customers!


My candles are made with all natural soy wax and I have a special method for making them the best ever – I am thinking about applying for a patent. It seems kind of silly to do, but ….

I hope that you are having a great Wednesday!

Did you do all of your holiday shopping already?

– Nope. I am going to be rushing last minute like always!

Buy anything good on Black Friday / Cyber Monday?
