#SeaKatyWheeze: Week 3 Recap

Three weeks in, and I'm still standing! While I still have a long way to go, the cobwebs are (sort of) shaking themselves out, and I'm working harder on getting the mind-leg connection going. This week's focus? No more sandbags for legs when running 400s at CrossFit. Do my best to get comfortable opening my… Continue reading #SeaKatyWheeze: Week 3 Recap

Check Your Email, Seawheezers

The "we're shipping your shorts" emails were sent out to Seawheeze registrants today! Last year, the pattern had already been teased, and I was able to figure out the source code to get the full-size images to share here. This year, no such luck - the only part of the 2017 Seawheeze shorts pattern that's… Continue reading Check Your Email, Seawheezers

5 Faves & a Dud: Lululemon’s 4/25/17 Upload + My GEC Success Story

If I had $1 for every rainy morning I've woken up to this month, I'd be able to buy myself a half decent meal at Panera. My preference for fast food dollar equivalence in the weather is generally down in the "fries & a frosty" off the value menu. I'm not even sure that sentence… Continue reading 5 Faves & a Dud: Lululemon’s 4/25/17 Upload + My GEC Success Story

#SeaKatyWheeze: Week 2 Recap

2 weeks down, many more to go. At a glance, there's a lack of blue... meaning this week's mileage total was pretty low. Work, weather, all around crankiness, it was simply not my week. Here's what things ended up looking like: Day 8 - Sunday 4/16/17 RW Plan: Run 5mi | Actual Workout: Chasing my nieces around… Continue reading #SeaKatyWheeze: Week 2 Recap

The Fitting Room: Lululemon Mind Over Miles LS & Mind Over Miles Crop

If Wednesday's mood could be characterized by any character in the history film, it would have been Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory's Veruca Salt. I was annoyed by anything and anyone that crossed my path for absolutely no good reason. So, what's a girl to do in a huff on a random Wednesday in an… Continue reading The Fitting Room: Lululemon Mind Over Miles LS & Mind Over Miles Crop

5 Faves & a Dud: Grapes, Currants & Rainbow Sherbet

Writing this intro before even checking lululemon's weekly upload, and giving myself a mental pep talk: Don't. Go. Crazy. Whatever appears that you may think is super cute and a half, realize that you need to buy your wannabe-runner self a Garmin watch and those aren't cheap! Fiscal responsibility is cool. *deep breaths* *loads page* *loads… Continue reading 5 Faves & a Dud: Grapes, Currants & Rainbow Sherbet

#SeaKatyWheeze: Week 1 Recap

Hey look, it's been 7 days and I'm still standing! Here's how each day will get broken down: 'RW Plan' means what the RunnersWorld training plan says I should be doing, and then the 'Actual' is what I brought myself to do that day. Depending on schedules I may end up flip flopping some rest/work… Continue reading #SeaKatyWheeze: Week 1 Recap

6 Lessons I Learned (the Hard Way) While Training for Seawheeze

In 2016, I learned a lesson upon crossing the finish line of the Seawheeze Half Marathon. I learned that my first-ever half in 2015 was fueled by novelty and endorphins. Having stopped and walked a few times in the latter half of Seawheeze (I ran my first half nonstop), I finished my second race at… Continue reading 6 Lessons I Learned (the Hard Way) While Training for Seawheeze

WMTM Alert: 4/13/17 Upload

Only 6 new adds to the lineup this week, for 104 items in total. I secretly like days like this when there isn't too much to drool over. Saving money is fun. WMTM Alert - 4/13/17 Upload The grainy look of indian ocean/black didn't go over so well on team Swiftly, so both the Swiftly Tech… Continue reading WMTM Alert: 4/13/17 Upload
