I know. I know you’re all surprised at this, because so am I. If you know me, you know I am notoriously ANTI-Kitchen. Jut does all the cooking around here, and I have no desire to join him. Except, apparently I do, when it comes to giving up sugar, needing something sweet, and of course, […]

As I ramp back up into Half-Marathon training, I thought I would show you some gear I use as part of my fitness journey. I just bought a bunch of cold-weather wear, in order to spend the least amount of time on the dreadmill this winter as possible! I’ve already shown you the shoes I […]

13.1 Miles – Runners of Steel

by Lindsey on May 8, 2012

in J&L Get Fit

Scratch another one off the life list, we did it! Justin and I ran and finished the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon! (This is why Jut’s family calls me a “smidget”) In the days leading up to the race, I started to get really nervous and anxty about it. I even got teary-eyed in the parking garage before the race, because I’m […]

Some of you may know the background on this, but many of you don’t, so I’m going to start at the beginning. In November 2007, I went to the dentist, and the hygenist asked me if I had diabetes, or if I had ever been tested for it. Um what? No? Why would a dentist […]

8.1 Miles

by Lindsey on April 17, 2012

in J&L Get Fit

On March 31st, we ran our first race! It was the 8.1 mile portion of Just a Short Run and we were joined by Justin’s brother James, and his wife April. They are both regular runners, and this was their third year running this particular course, so they knew exactly what to expect. I, on the other hand, went […]

New Kicks

in J&L Get Fit

While I was gone, Jut and I went to get fitted for some new running shoes. We were both running in Nike Shox, and neither of us were having good luck with them. We decided that since we’re getting more serious about this whole running thing, it was time to invest in the right shoes! […]

On listening to my body

by Lindsey on February 3, 2012

in J&L Get Fit

So as most people know by now, I’m training for a half marathon. (To be honest, I think it kind of sucks, and when it’s over, my running career will probably be over too, but that’s not really what this post is about.) Along with the running, I’ve also started seriously getting into yoga, going about twice […]

Wow, it’s been almost a month since I last posted! I guess blogging falls down the priority list when you try to buy a house and plan a wedding within 6 months of each other! Also? We’re only 5 months and 10 days away! Unbelievable. So what have we been up to so far in 2012? The short answer […]

Half-Marathon Training

by Lindsey on November 28, 2011

in J&L Get Fit

Remember when I said we signed up for a half-marathon? We were so excited to start training and get serious about running. But then life happened, and we stopped going to the gym. Then we never got back into it. And now here we are, 6 months before the race, not able to run a mile. […]

Are we nuts??

by Lindsey on September 27, 2011

in J&L Get Fit

In an effort to occupy our time and minds, we have done something crazy. We registered to run a half marathon! In May! As in like 7 months from now! Are we crazy? Probably! May 6th, 2012, we will be participating in the UPMC Health Plan Pittsburgh Half Marathon. This will be a first for […]
