Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Winter half marathon: CHECK! 😀

Spring half marathon: CHECK! :mrgreen:

I just registered to run Boston’s Run to Remember at the end of May, so now I have two out of four half marathons on the calendar for 2011. Yay!


I ran the Run to Remember back in 2009 when I was injured, so it wasn’t a very good race for me. Hopefully, this year’s will go a lot better.


Caitlin also signed up for the Run to Remember, so I’m sure that a (virtual) training buddy will help me too!


Mal and I enjoyed a tasty crockpot dinner at Dave and Marie’s house this evening. We had Baked Potato Soup! Mmm!



Soup toppings: bacon, shredded cheddar, and sour cream.



On the side, we had garlic bread made with Garlic Gold, which was a Christmas present from Mal and me!


And cupcakes for dessert!


A.R.T. + Cambridge, 1. Giveaway

Thanks to everyone who entered this morning’s giveaway! Here’s your winner:


I love Cambridge 1! It was one of my favorite parts of living in Harvard Square last year. I like the one with tossed baby arugula, fontina, and parmigiano (#7). Gotta love the “pizzasalad.”

Congrats, Erin! Please email me at to claim your prize!

We’re getting a huge snow storm tonight, so Mal’s school already canceled classes for tomorrow. Snow day! Wahoo!



  1. Alright. I’m inspired. How do you go about training and then entering marathons and half marathons?
    Geeze, I wish I had a snow day!
    Jess : )

  2. I’m running that race too! It’s going to be my first half marathon so I’m excited to have you and Caitlin for inspiration!

  3. Hi Tina!
    This is my first time commenting, but I have been following your blog for a few weeks now.
    I ran to the Run To Remember last year, and seeing this post both reminded and prompted me to sign up again! It was great last year, and now I cannot wait for May. That would be so awesome to see you and Caitlin there, probably difficult though as there will be thousands of people participating! Haha
    Are you going to the expo the day before to pick up the race packet and such?
    And I am live near Boston as well, yay for snow days for my family as well 🙂

  4. Yah Run to Remember! I’m excited to run it this year too. 🙂

    Snow day for me; I’m staying at the hotel since I’m working tomorrow morning.

  5. I love Baked Potato Soup – I wish my husband liked it! So creamy and warm.

    Lucky that Mal’s school is already cancelled. My husband’s is but mine isn’t yet. Grr.. it better be when I wake up in the morning!

  6. Some of the the girls I work with and I were just talking about the Run to Remember last night! I definitely want to do it this year, it’s a great run around the city.

  7. I’m running the Run to Remember too! It will be my first half marathon!! I’m excited and nervous. So fun that you and Caitlin are running it too!

  8. Congrats girl! I really do want to challenge myself and run a half marathon one day ; ) I think next year, this year I have so much going on with me teaching dance trance now, and my wedding!

    lol at Mals face in the pic with him getting soup! His facial expressions sometimes are too funny and priceless!

  9. I love the Run to Remember! I didn’t know registrations was open. I have to say I’m excited to do a race “with” you and Caitlin!

  10. I’m running it, too! It’ll be my first half marathon and I already started training. I’m a new runner- since June, but I’m totally hooked. A friend talked me into it- she said it’s a fantastic course. I’m psyched!

  11. That soup looks so warm and comforting! We got about 3-4 inches of snow overnight last night but, it’s business per usual today. Only a few local schools were on a delay but none were closed.
