Sharing my LOVE of sparkly soul headbands again today! Most of you have heard me rave about these bands – they are frequently in my pictures – and are one of my favorite pieces of essential running gear. I have an oddly shaped head and in comparison to most women my age, it’s large. I […]

My alarm went off before 4 am this morning. Hit snooze twice. Told myself I would run later. Admittedly I stayed up later than planned reading Endurance. I snuggled up to my husband and he nicely asked me if I was going to run. I said no I’d run later. He said there was no […]

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 […]

It’s no secret that I love Sparkly Soul Headbands – they are one of the ONLY companies who make headbands that actually do not slip off my head. What’s the secret? Unlike other headbands that use elastic at the bottom part of the band to make it fit around your head, these bands use the […]

16 marathons over 8 years has taught me that you ALWAYS wear less on race day than you want to. Here is a great article on the best temperature for a marathon!,Cold_Weather_Best_For_Marathon_Performance.html Here is what I will be wearing on Sunday. Saucony shorts and a sports bra. I’m bringing my hat if it gets cold […]

In this world of too many choices it is often hard to find products that work and weed out those that claim to work. If we were all millionaires this would not matter, we could buy with reckless abandon and not worry about wasting $15 on a headband. Alas, most of us are not millionaires. […]

It is no big surprise I like Saucony. I also like finding deals. Finding deals on something I am willing to pay full price for is one of those deals I never pass up. Saucony has this great section on their website called LAST CHANCE. There is limited stock of these items, so they typically […]
