2014 Year in Review: On my own & running through this thing called life

2014 Year in Review _ Cherie Runs This

Some wise person once said, “Sometimes you just have to look back at your past and smile about how far you’ve come.” Seems legit. As a lot of you know, my husband and I got separated in the Fall of 2013. So my 2014 was my very first year in about 10 years that I was …

Sh*t People Say on Instagram

Sh*t People Say on Instagram

  I feel good. Really good. {Yeah, my mirror’s not dirty. They’re paint spots, okay? Haa.} Well, except for a diagnosis of sciatica this past Tuesday. Sweet baby goodness gracious, does that sh*t hurt. Sciatica stems from something else, and in my case, it’s stemming from the herniated lumbar disc. Yes, that same injury from …

If you click your heels together enough times, it’ll work.

Long time no type! I assure y’all yinz (I guess I better bring back my Pittsburghese!) that I didn’t fall off the Duquesne Incline, into one of the rivers off one of the many bridges, choke on a Primanti Bros. sandwich, or die from a heart attack upon meeting Big Ben (I didn’t find him yet. …

13.1 Reasons Why the Pittsburgh Half Marathon is My Favorite

Two weeks ago today, I ran my second Pittsburgh Half Marathon. Now, it didn’t take running it a second time to realize that it could very well be my favorite, but it did definitely cement it as such. It also didn’t take two weeks to come up with 13.1 reasons; I knew those during the race. Heck, …
