    Ganeeban Runs Shamrock'n – Week 6

    Is it race day yet? I just want to get it over with! HAHA, I still have four weeks, but I just want to get the damn run over with. Seriously, I let training get into my head way too much.

Monday Schedule: Cross Train or 3 Miles Easy Monday Actual: Indoor Soccer in the PM Tuesday Schedule: Fleet Feet Fun Run or 30-45 Mins Easy Tuesday Actual: Nada Wednesday Schedule: 5 Mi Easy Wednesday Actual: 5.02 Mi…

    Rose & Thorn [51]

    Glorifying busy with a grateful heart! Rose: Lotty receiving her Master’s degree & a weekend of footy! Thorn: Losing our co-ed semi final game on Sunday 🙁 We knew it would be a busy weekend, but we were prepared for it. A soccer tourney for J, meant that lots of soccer and time at the Pub were going down. Mix in a concert, graduation party, another graduation, and more soccer…you pretty much have our weekend nailed down. Although it was jam packed with FUNsitivites, we did get spend some quality time with the three of us each day. That’s whats most important on our weekends with L! Friday I came…

    A full heart..and belly! Rose: An entire weekend with my family! Thorn: Relationship stuff with. I had no idea this weekend would so wonderful. I was able to spend the whole weekend with my immediate family and our little family. We definitely kept ourselves busy all weekend, out and about, but it was time well spent with those that I love. The high and low of this weekend was extreme, but feel renewed today with a full heart.   This has the potential to put you to sleep with its length, feel free to just skip the text and look at the pics 😉 Friday I was really hoping we’d…

    Rose & Thorn [37]

    The long weekend I’ve been longing for…No pun intended…Rose: Valentine’s Day and celebrating one year as J’s lady! Thorn: Not doing the long run that was on the training schedule :/ How did we luck out with a long weekend to celebrate Valentine’s Day and our one year anniversary? Since originally I hadn’t put any, and I am any, emphasis on celebrating either this year…we didn’t have any grandiose plans. However, we made do with the last minute planning that we could and it turned out to be a very amazing weekend! Obviously, this post normally goes up on a Monday, but I’m one of those ‘bloggers’ that doesn’t blog on…

    I really could have used an extra day this weekend… Rose: A fun weekend with L and running a few of my long run miles with Haley! Thorn: Only 12 miles for my long run and 6 of them were in pouring rain! Our weekends with L are always a little brighter. Her and J are spending the day together, because most schools have it off 🙁 I could have used an extra day off today, but oh well…just means next week’s three day weekend will be that much sweeter! Friday  So I think this recent storm should have been dubbed the #HellaStorm , it’s been going non-stop since the…

    My body is still screaming from this weekend… Rose: Our Family Friday Date Night & our belated Girl’s Holiday Outing! Thorn: The shittiest long run this training cycle, well…to-date! Friday I came home to the BEST piece of mail ever. I don’t think I mentioned it in earlier posts, but I wore a fun faux fur vest, from Tarjay. I pretty much took it off once I walked in the door and left it on a chair. As I was upstairs hanging out, my cousin found it and THEN my entire family decided to try it on and take pics with it. Then I came down and we all had…

    Rose & Thorn [13]

    I’m made for summer weekends… Rose: It’s a tie, between our Friday night park date or our Saturday morning Railroad Museum adventure. Thorn: Being poolside with gloomy-ish weather… It seems as if the weekend progressed, my picture taking did the opposite. Per the usu, it was a busy one, but I was also able to sneak in moments of a little R&R! Spending time with one of my best friends (from here on out, I will just reference to as Wench – I hang out with her enough and she’s on here, so instead of always writing ‘best friend’ I’m making it easy on myself) and her little lovebug is…

    How Ganeeban Got Her Groove Back!

    Yeah, I just third person’d myself! Stem selfie   Day 8 of 2014 ANNNND I finally got my first run in. Blah blah blah, excuses, excuses, excuse – I just didn’t do it. Being sick was my scapegoat, but I should have known better. My run this AM gave me the biggest runner’s high ever, I’m still feeling it! Note to self: try to remember this feeling for those days you just don’t want to DO IT! Recently a runner friend, who’s acquaintance goes back pretty far, asked if I’d like to help start a little mini running movement in our lovely hometown of Sac! They are a plenty around…

    'eeeeef Friday

    It’s Friday. Its Fabulous. Five Fabulous “F” things going on in my life… Fleet Feet Fun Run: Every Tuesday our local FF offers a fun run. Most of the time they are sponsored, so you can try out shoes, get some freebies, win something, or have a drink or bites. This week happened to be sponsored by Nike. I’m slowly jumping on the Nike bandwagon, but all of my friends have been riding this train for years. So I reached out to a few and we got a small group together to do this run. From the store to McKinley Park and back is perfectly 3 miles. This is the…
