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. This couldn’t be more true. This year has been such a radical change in […]

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. […]

MILE AFTER MILE

Y’all….after running 11 miles and biking 19, I am officially pooped. I can’t believe I’ve been training for this half marathon since May. When people ask me if I love running I always shrug and say it’s more of a love/hate relationship. I don’t think I’ll ever the type of runner who is experiencing some […]

TOO DRY TO CRY

CUTE AS A BUTTON

Happy Friday everyone! Are you excited for the weekend? I most definitely am! This morning I was in a hurry to get ready, so I threw on my favorite oxford. Wearing a button up when I don’t feel my best (or feel like doing my hair) always makes me feel more put together. What’s your […]

RUBY

This week has been the longest, gloomiest week! I feel like anytime there’s a long holiday weekend the next week just drags. The constant rain we’ve been having here doesn’t help, either. I snagged this fun dark ruby top from TJ Maxx last week! Usually when I go into TJ Maxx I get really overwhelmed […]

TIP OF THE HAT

Spring is bloomin’ all around me and gets me real excited for fun hats and light sweaters + skinnies. We are still having some of that in between weather (this morning it was in the 60s!) and on top of my office feeling like a meat locker, I always tend to try and wear something […]

RUN JESS, RUN

When you have your photo taken, do you immediately freeze up or become Betty Spaghetti and not know what to do with your hands? This happens to me every single time. You would think someone who works with models on a daily basis would know what to do with their hands and body but as […]
