NOTHING NEW ON RACE DAY. I’ve repeated this little nugget of wisdom to myself and countless other runners. Race day is not the day that you want to have a variable that could cause you unknown stress or make matters worse. You want everything that you can control to be controlled. There are VERY few companies […]

Saucony Burn Out LS 2

Just as I thought the mornings were getting cooler the weather threw me a curve ball this morning with its high temperatures and muggy humidity. My speedy running friend and I agreed the weather was miserable but decided we probably should not complain about it because in a few short months our runs will be filled […]


My early morning runs under the stars have been reminding me that fall is just around the corner. It is cooler in the mornings than when I was running with the stroller so it’s given me a chance to test of some of the new gear from Saucony’s Fall 2012 line. One of my instant […]

At the start line of B & A Marathon

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect black capri. You would have thought by now I would have found one that I was in love with but I hadn’t. There were plenty I liked – some I liked A LOT others I liked a LITTLE. Some I would even go so far as to say […]

Omron Watch 1

I’ll be honest with you and tell you that before I tested out this heart rate monitor/watch I didn’t really run with my heart rate monitor that much. The reason being I hate the chest strap and more often than not the times I am most curious about my heart rate are when I am not […]

August 2011 056

Introducing the Saucony Shadow Genesis….. I’ve been running in this gem of a shoe for months now, alternating it between my Kinvara’s. If you asked me 6 months ago if I believed you could buy an $80 running shoe and have it be a GOOD shoe I would have told you no way. [Insert foot […]

Saucony Beanie

The Run Vibe Beanie and the DryLete Loose-Fit Beanie are my two favorite winter beanies from Saucony. The DryLete Beanie is thinner than the Run Vibe but helps protect from the biting winter wind. It is tight enough that I can just put my hair in a ponytail or braid and tuck it up in […]
