A few weeks ago we ran the Marysville Strawberry Fest 5k. Those of you who are CRAPT runners (crappy runners are people too) will totally relate to our motivation for running this race. The reason was simply because we were pretty sure we'd be able to place in our age group. That's a hard one … Continue reading Well, That Was Berry Nice
So, the other day, we were working out (mostly chatting) and started talking about what makes a great race. Is it just getting a good finish time? Great swag? The weather? The company? We thought it would be fun to write about each of our favorite races thus far in our running "careers". Lydia's Story … Continue reading Favorite (or just least hated) Race So Far
Um, wow and ouch. Let's just start there. This challenge is, well challenging. For those of you who have stuck with it, we're awesome. Can I get an "Amen"?

Lunges are really hard, and just guessing, but we're probably … Continue reading Butt, Gut & Leg Challenge Week 2

So we ran another half marathon. That's right, you read that correctly, we (Lydia and Annie) ran another half marathon two weeks after the Everett Half *gasp*. Skeptical? We don't blame you, but we'll explain: We have this amazing friend, Jessie, who had a miscarriage and lost her grandma all in the same week. She … Continue reading The Ups and Downs (Literally) of the Whidbey Half Marathon
Last Sunday, April 8th, we ran the Everett Half Marathon. If you're a Pacific Northwest local, or have ever spent very much time here in the Greater Seattle area, you'll know "spring" actually means "rain". Sunday did not let us down. It rained. A lot. Other than that, the course was well marked, the volunteers … Continue reading Everett Half Marathon…or Full Rainathon
Welcome to another edition of The Favorite Things Club!! Every so often we get overly excited about some product or another and feel the need to share it with the world.
