These are my words

mostly about food and running

7 Weeks Post-OP

Today I am exactly seven weeks post-op. Not much has happened really since my last update. I visited Dallas, walked 3 miles, and prepared my training schedule for Dopey in January, which includes the Dallas Marathon. Between my four-week check in here on the blog and...

Not running anywhere

I haven't been running much this year, although I did eat all the food in New York City for my birthday. My endometriosis finally became too much to live with and I had a hysterectomy immediately after I returned from NYC. When I find a moment, I'll post some amazing...

Aloha

We go to Hawaii every year for Spring Break, not necessarily by choice, but it's what it is in life with Artboy. This trip was a blur of Lava hikes, tiki drinks, amazing food, and great friends. While normally, our Hawaii vacations revolve around amazing dinners, but...

Fish Taco Craving

I spent a good part of my youth in San Diego, where fish tacos apparently bleed from our veins, but I truly hate fish tacos. Granted I went from my childhood protest of refusing to eat another fish stick at a fancy restaurant around age 5 to not eating fish until I...

Inside Kristie update…

Since my biggest traffic draw is not favorite restaurants, a race I ran, or even pug photos, but the posts on running with dermoid cysts, I figured a TMI update was due. So in the midst of a shitshow of a January full of pain and suffering, I found a new doctor and...

Love is in the Air

Last week, Artboy and I ventured out for our Anniversary and an early Valentine's dinner at local favorite El Gaucho. To be honest we had a $75 credit that was expiring so we went and spent $600 (after the discount) on steak and wine! I know, I know, that makes no...

Where did 2016 go?

Seriously, where did 2016 go? I'm positive I did so much, but it's all a blur of food, running, tequila Sundays, traveling, and friends. Looking at my 2016 focus, I clearly stated I wanted less running, more life. Check! Having started the year still battling whooping...

Several months ago, I was working on a project, and the publisher objected to a single phrase in a fully written manuscript. The exact phrase doesn’t matter as much as the sentiment. He objected to us mentioning terrorist attacks, mass shootings, and gun violence. He...

My Voice

If you are  telling people to relax, perhaps you need to realize this isn't just another election, just another president, for women, PoC, non-Christians, LGTBQ, or anyone deemed different. I have stayed silent recently, because there have been more pressing world...

The Ultimate Buzzkill

I waited to share this story until I was sure no one was reading...so two weeks ago, I went out for an easy Monday afternoon run. I believe I was running four miles at a 1/2 mile run, 1/4 mile walk intervals. I was about a mile in, about half way though my second 1/2...

Culture Club Cheese Bar

We finally made it over  to Culture Club Cheese Bar in Capitol Hill to enjoy our Kickstarter awards. Two pairings. I chose white and Ricky chose red. Culture Club has been holding special events like flaming parm, raclette night, and meet the cheesemakers. Head...

Tuesdays on the Run | Wear the Race Shirt???

I'm in the middle (really just the start) of crazy work, race, wedding, birthday, work, travel, race, travel, work something or other, but wanted to chime in on today's Tuesday's on the Run hosted by  Erika, Marcia and Patty. As Patty so delicately said, "Race shirts:...

Coachella ’16 Exploration: MELODY’S ECHO CHAMBER

I deviated from usual Coachella exploration today, as every musician I hit with my finger was a DJ (or a DJ group, why do we need so many of those?), and I just wasn't in the mood for any type of overly produced and mixed computer music with guest singers crooning, no...

Missing Chewie

It's been a few year since we lost Chewie to the ravages of old age, but I miss him every day. [gallery type="rectangular" link="none" size="medium" ids="2241,2242,2243,2244,2245,2246"...
