It’s another snow day in my neck of the woods. Compared to the 32 inches {according to some sources – 40 inches} we got with the last snow storm, a couple seems like nothing at all. I don’t mind the dusting and really I enjoy snow days at home with my little people. I slept in, […]

I don’t know about you but I am ready for old man winter to pack up his bags and head elsewhere. I’ve endured {or that’s what it feels like anyways} enough cold long runs to last a lifetime. As I write this I’m checking the weather because there is snow in our forecast – again. […]

I post a lot of selfies on my instagram page. Not because I like looking at my face all the time, seriously I don’t – there isn’t even one solo selfie on my personal instagram page, but because those posts get the most likes. Hear me out….. I’m always dumfounded when I post a picture […]

Hi running friends! We experienced the storm of a lifetime this past weekend. We have essentially been snowed in since mid day last Friday! Here are some pictures I took during the storm and after…   TODAY ONLY all tanks are on SALE for $19.99 at www.dreambigrunlong.com – this is the lowest they have ever been! I’m […]

Happy 2016 my friends! I can’t believe it’s already the 13th day of this year. I had every intention of posting here every day in January. January is a big month in the health, fitness and running world and I wanted to be a part of that, but life has gotten in the way – […]

I happen to LOVE a lot of things…. I also happen to like to ramble as well as share what I like/love. I’m sure my friends are thankful I have a blog now, before 2009 they got a lot of emails. Hey did you see this? Oh this is cool, thought you may like it. Now […]

I really really don’t like dwelling on runs that didn’t go my way. I put them as far out of my head as I can, as fast as I can. Runners have to have a short memory when it comes to some things and a long memory when it comes to others. I don’t like talking […]

As I think back on some of my favorite memories of 2015 the Marine Corps Marathon kids race and really the entire race weekend – top out as one of my favorite “running” memories all year! Marine Corps Marathon is one of my favorite races and the weekend is truly one of my favorite weekends […]

In life most things can be looked at – as the glass half full – glass half empty OR that there is anything in your glass to begin with that you have the LUXURY of that decision. When I started looking at things in the 3rd way I started feeling more grateful and started complaining […]

Your Recovery Obsession Is Slowing You Down: An interesting read from Outside online about speeding up recovery and how could actually be working against you. Read the article and then tell me – do you agree or disagree? At first I thought – no way – recovery is vital – but after thinking about it […]

I’ve been lazy lately with my running playlist, opting to hold my phone while I run and listen to Pandora. Pandora is great for short runs, but skip too many songs and you are left listening to some tunes you might not enjoy on a long run. If you are more on top of things […]

When you run what feels like all the time, even a slight change in weather from the normal can feel fun. The fog/mist yesterday morning had me excited to head out for my easy recovery run. About a mile in to my run I ran into my friend Steve, who owns Transition Triathlon with his […]
