Fukumoto Friday: Week 29

This bad boy was my nemesis on Tuesday: A couple of months ago, I signed up for the Dirty Donkey mud run, figuring it would be a fun little obstacle course to do during the summer. I also decided to sign up for some obstacle course racing training through Fukumoto Fitness as an added bonus…

Gracing our way through Summer

Aaaaaaand we are officially in summer mode. I’m suddenly being transported back to my youth and the inevitable “I’m booooored” or “Now what???”. It could potentially be a very long summer. I’m hoping it will be a good one. I have to say, preschool graduation was beyond adorable. My heart was pretty much bursting from…

Fukumoto Friday: Week 28

This is getting written a bit later than usual on account of one very special 5 year old having his Spring concert and preschool graduation this morning (I seriously can’t….the cuteness…gah! It was too much. But no tears, just a lot of beaming pride that translated into too many hugs and kisses to thoroughly embarrass…

This year, we got snow. Snow!!! *weeps* Thankfully, we don’t mind using heat in our house so we made the most of it. This past week was tough. After my CFSC…

Fukumoto Friday: Week 26

And just like that…we are halfway there. Or halfway done this little journey I set out on back in November. If you’d told me where I’d be right now, I’d have laughed in your face and said no way, no how. I would not have had the courage to start pursuing a dream over 3…

Polar M400: A Runner’s Dream Watch

Disclosure: I am a Polar Ambassador and as such, was provided with the M400 as part of my ongoing ambassador role and training at no cost to me. All opinions are my own. Let’s talk watches. There are no shortage of them out there. Between all the activity trackers, sport watches, heart rate watches, gps…
