Speed Work…. BOOOOOO.

It’s official. I’m so immersed in the digital age that I really wanted to put a thumbs down emoji at the end of that title. No, but really. Really, about the thumbs down, and really about a bad day of speed work. Workout Today we were supposed to run 6-8 x 800m at some crazy pace that I clearly couldn’t hack. Apparently according to Angie, […]

Perspective.

Hi guys, TGIF! No but literally, T.G.I.F. I haven’t been this happy to see a Friday in forever. Like, usually I’m happy for Friday’s BUT this one, I genuinely could not be more thrilled for. Mostly because of my desperate need for some relaxation. Workout NONE. I woke up at 2:36 and immediately decided that I wouldn’t be running this morning. Steven was set to […]

SHOOT.

I had an entire blog post written. A long one. It took me 30 minutes. It just got deleted. This is all you get now. #ihatetechnology (I ran 20 miles today in 2:40:50 averaging 8:03mm pace. Huge thanks to Angie for leaving me wonderful treats in her mailbox. Huge thanks to God for making sure I didn’t get arrested for a federal offense by “tampering” […]

A re-building morning.

Re-building of my confidence, that is. This morning, I finally pushed through a run that actually gave my (self-inflicted) bruised ego a bit of a boost. Workout Yesterday I ran 20, so I was originally planning just an easy 10 today. But last night Jeremiah mentioned that he might want to try for a few miles at marathon pace because he’s running the Winchester Marathon […]

Monday Rhymes With Funday, But It’s Never Quite As Fun as Sunday…

Hey Frans, I hope y’all had a great Monday. Mine was jam-packed with work, work and work, but it’s actually been a pretty good day. First off, it was great because it was an OFF day, and once again I have found myself in desperate need of such a day. I think it was especially helpful today because I worked until 6:30 p.m. and didn’t […]

What Sleeping In Means At My House.

Hey all – welcome to the very first edition of “A morning in the life of Kate.” Today was a pretty crazy day at work, but crazy these days is par for the course. What’s NOT par for the course is sleeping in! It’s been a while since I completely disregarded the alarm function on my phone, and made plans to actively sleep in. I […]

Titan’s Tailgate

Sunday Funday consisted of a trip to the Titan’s game for an MBA and Engineering Alumni tailgate! Seriously though, how great is my job? I get to do the coolest stuff. Who doesn’t have time for a selfie at LP Field? The tailgate was great — the staff at LP actually prepared a lunch buffet for us that was set up just inside the entrance. […]

Disparaging Weather and Baby Phish.

It’s days like today in Cookeville that send me scurrying into the abyss of depression (aka. under all the covers pigging out on meringues from Kroger). Those suckers right there. Yup. Pure sugary deliciousness. The only thing I want during the month of January, or on days like today when it’s technically 55 degrees, but it feels like 45 degrees and it’s gray and misting […]
