1st full week of 2016 training is finished. I’m excited to get serious about training again! Though I don’t love winter training it actually works best with our family schedule right now. My kids don’t have sports on the weekends and overall we “do less” and are at home together more. Because it gets darker earlier, […]

Friday the 13th Eric and I headed to Las Vegas for one of my favorite race weekends all year. I started the morning with a basement workout. Occasionally I feel crazy when I get up at 4 something to do a workout, but I always feel better on days I workout or run, so if […]

I can’t believe it’s been a week since I was in Vegas. RNR Vegas always seems to come and go in a flash. While I would certainly love to hit rewind on the whole weekend and do it over again, I am looking forward to the next two months. Related: 10 Packing Hacks For Your […]

My eldest two littles have had the day off of school the past two days because of teacher work days, which happens to coincide with voting. Voting is awesome. I understand the need for some schools to be used as places to vote. I also think that by giving kids the day off from school […]

I wrote out a whole blog post rambling about how wonderful and crazy life is. Filled with so many twists and turns – highs and lows. It was fun to write and even more fun to delete. My journal has been my best friend lately and all the nonsense I wrote was probably more for my […]

This month’s top 10 list is as eclectic as they come. From the Top 40, you’ll find a slew of collaborations featuring Enrique Iglesias, Macklemore, and Shakira. Beyond the pop charts, you’ll find a college radio hit from Grouplove, a country anthem from Jerrod Niemann, and a club rocker from Martin Garrix. No matter what kind of music you […]

It’s hard for me to believe but this year marks the 7th year of running with a running stroller. My BOB Running Stroller is by far the best gift I received when I was pregnant with Chloe. I wasn’t aware at the time of the numerous options when it came to strollers. I googled what running stroller was […]

This morning I got a VERY exciting tweet from my friend and coaching client Tess. I love it for many reasons. One of the reasons is because through coaching, Tess and I have become friends, it felt extra special that she was the one who told me. She is a beautiful soul and I feel […]

Each year Running USA surveys runners just like you and I to gather up to date information and develop stats on the state of running in the USA. If you want your voice to be heard and would like to be a part of this year’s survey click on this link to be taken to […]

This story (http://running.competitor.com/2011/10/news/marathon-cheat-expelled-from-his-running-club_40158) in the news today reminded me of the day I was told point blank by another runner that he had cheated at a marathon. There are some terrible things people can do in life. In running I would say cheating is one of the worst. I was recently at a party and was […]

Overwhelmed. It was the topic of a blog post a couple of weeks ago and this one word still seems to sum up my life right now. The tip that helped the most from reader comments, and is still helping, was about breaking up tasks/accomplishments in to small things. On days I do the dishes, I […]

This thought has been on my mind ever since I opened a pack of gum and found this…. Try explaining the taste of bubble gum to someone who has never tasted it. I have contemplated in my head how I would explain running to someone who has never felt the exhilarating feeling I get from running. […]
