Mustache Running Club

“Run in places you love with people you like. Enjoying your surroundings and training partners will strengthen your commitment to running and bring out the best in you.” – Deena Kastor This is one of my all time favorite running quotes.

Pain in the CALF

1 month left. I have exactly one month left until the Mo Cowbell marathon. This will be my first marathon I have ever run. I really can’t put into words what this marathon means to me. I have worked so hard all summer to get to this point. I have sacrificed friday nights (no drinking […]

head up, wings out

Long time, no see! I can’t believe it’s been 10 months since I last posted to my blog. 10 months ago feels like a lifetime. I’ve had plenty of time to think about how I want to approach Jess and Tonic and had to think really hard about what I want this blog to represent. […]

LONG WEEKEND ARE THE BEST WEEKENDS

Another weekend, another Monday! This past weekend was especially nice because we had Good Friday off! I wish we had a 3 day weekend EVERY weekend. I feel like it gave me enough time to get everything done that I wanted- running, shopping, cleaning the house, etc. I feel like with 2 day weekends you’re […]

HALFWAY THERE

Wednesday is almost over! The week is halfway to Friday. How has your week been? I feel like mine has felt kind of strange. It feels like it has been both fast and slow. I have my Dale Carnegie leadership class on Mondays and I don’t get home until 9, which makes for a long […]
