I Run This Body Garmin Watch Face

The I Run This Body Garmin watch face got an update this month! We listened to your feedback and added step count as well as battery life to the face. Clockwise from top: time, steps, date and then battery percentage. The face is easy to download and easily removable if you decide you have had enough of it. Over 16K+ of you have downloaded it for your watch!!! The very first #irunthisbody photo that was posted to instagram was a picture of my original Garmin watch, so this watch face is … [Continue reading...]


I’m at the point in training where my feet are a hot mess. So from here on out I’ll be wearing one of these two nail polish colors {smokin’ hot & model clicks} in an attempt to hide the purple toenails as well as the lack thereof. I thought about going to the nail salon […]

Kona 2017

This week is likely to be my last monster week before NYC Marathon. I don’t usually like to taper or cut back this far out when I’m trying to be serious about things but I’m being realistic with myself. I started this training cycle back in July when I got back from our family vacation because […]

Long Run - New York City Marathon

It’s week #13 of marathon training and this is my first time writing here. I’ve written a hundred blog posts in my head but then didn’t have the time or shall I say MAKE the time to actually write here. At first it was a who cares anyways type of thing, but then I realized I […]

Dorothy Beal - Love Of Potatoes 1

As a 36-time marathoner and busy mom of three, I’m always on the hunt for quick and easy ways to feed my family healthy, minimally processed food. There are two items on my daily menu: coffee (can I get an amen?!) and potatoes. Growing up, I was always obsessed with french fries—who wasn’t—but it wasn’t […]

Dorothy Beal - Running - June 18

Hi friends! It’s been awhile since I popped in to say hello. Thank you to those of you who have stuck around the past five months while I didn’t write. If you are new and are randomly finding this post, welcome – I’m happy you are here! I’ve been debating what to do with this […]

New Carpet

Good morning! It felt good to write here yesterday. I’ve missed this place. Thoughts for today: Running sometimes sucks. That was the point of my video yesterday I posted to instagram. Does that mean I’ve ever regretted a run? Nope, never. Does that mean I want to run less than I’m running now? Nope, I […]

January 2018 - Mile Posts

I had every intention of writing here every day in January and then yeah….that didn’t happen. So I’ve already not met some of my goals for the month, but others are still going strong. I’m choosing to focus on those and not let myself worry too much about the ones that have already fallen by […]

Taking A Break From Facebook

At the beginning of 2017 amidst the whirlwind that was the election, I got into a somewhat heated discussion on my personal Facebook page. I was so frustrated with the entire discussion that I ended up deactivating my Facebook account for a while just to escape what felt like an increasingly negative place. I loved […]

Sponsored by ASICS. Spring marathon training started last week with my first local race {a holiday themed 5K} in what feels like forever! My mileage for the week was right around 25, which is lower than where I usually start at the beginning of a marathon cycle, but right where I intended to be for […]

Osprey Daylite Backpack Review - Mile Posts

Sponsored by Zappos My kids are home on winter break and I’m pretty excited about it! Yes, it makes fitting in a run a little trickier than normal, but I treasure these days where the morning snuggles have no reason to end and we aren’t tied to a time on a clock. I love when […]

Kona with Gatorade Endurance

I ran today. It didn’t go as planned. I hate plans for this reason, because often {or more than often} things don’t go as planned. Thankfully my coach is also my best friend and she helps keep me on a non-plan plan. It’s one of the many reasons I decided to hire her as my […]
