I’m a big fan of the ladies at Another Mother Runner so I may have been a tiny bit giddy when they included me in their podcast round up post today!

Target Run Fast Shirt

Chloe and I spotted this fun little shirt at Target today in the girls running section. I love it so much that there is running specific gear for little girls now. It was not so long ago that many did not consider running a sport or something that could possibly even warrant a section in a […]

In a world that doesn’t often make sense I’d like the weather to – I know – I know – there are bigger issues. It’s been REALLY nice all week and now we are supposed to see a 30 degree temperature drop in one day. I can’t handle this - please get it together mother nature – […]

Look Back

In November when I was riding my high from Rock N Roll Vegas Marathon, I decided I was all in for RNR USA 1/2 or marathon {if I was feeling crazy enough to run 3 in the spring}. A lot has happened since November – big – small – good – bad – great and […]

This month’s playlist is dominated by club tracks. Fitz & The Tantrums appeared in last month’s Top 10 and have returned this month with the only rock song to make the cut. Apart from that, everything else is straight from the dancefloor: a fierce new single from Kylie Minogue, a riff on Instagram culture from The Chainsmokers, and a collaboration […]

Months ago I started Allergy Shot Therapy at my ENT for my year round seasonal allergies. It was three shots weekly, given at the same time, two in one arm, one in the other. At my ENT I was unable to make a weekly appointment but rather had to call on certain days and make sure it was okay […]

I love the treadmill. I hate the treadmill. I’m what I call a surge runner, meaning that I surge and slow down a zillion and one times during a mile. It’s fairly easy for me to hit a consistent average mile after mile but if there was a chart of the pace on my Garmin […]

It’s taking me a little bit to adjust to my new normal. I’ve made some mistakes and I’ve slipped up a couple of times but for the most part I’m on track. One slip up led to a raging headache with in 10 minutes and I vowed to REALLY take to heart that I can’t eat […]

The littles are home again, this time from an ice storm rather than a snow storm. I love how beautiful ice makes everything look, but it is really destructive. I swear I have spent a good portion of the winter outside trying to get snow and ice off the bending bushes in our backyard. I […]

I recently did the 7 minutes with Sima Hip Openers you tube video and highly recommend it. Sima suggested I try this video out pre or post run. I’ve done it post run and felt a difference the next day! I’m NOT a yogi but I am on my way to feeling more confident when […]

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 […]

Saturday’s 13 miler was the type of run that makes you remember each and every reason why you fell in love with running in the first place. It was not easy and it certainly was not fast but it was beautiful and it was OUTSIDE. After spending what feels like weeks upon weeks on the treadmill […]

Day 2 of the allergy elimination diet my allergist put me on was MUCH easier than day 1. I’m not feeling sorry for myself anymore. Today it seems fun to really know what it feels like to feel good from the inside out. My energy levels are up. I took day two off and didn’t […]

I made it through day one of the allergy elimination diet my allergist put me on. This is a victory in my book. It’s a struggle for me not to eat certain foods I am drawn too and certainly a struggle to not have caffeine of any kind. Yesterdays food consisted of: Dried Peaches Fresh […]

Use hashtag #pileonbraceletsnotworries on instagram and show us your ARM MESS!!! Piling on worries does nothing to make them go away. Piling on bracelets reminds me that it’s silly to stress about worries. What will be will always be – good or bad – worrying doesn’t help.

‘Tis a lesson you should heed, If at first you don’t succeed, Try, try again; Then your courage should appear, For if you will persevere, You will conquer, never fear Try, try again; Once or twice, though you should fail, If you would at last prevail, Try, try again; If we strive, ’tis no disgrace […]

Legs - Running

Five years ago I didn’t know there was such a thing as running blogs. I also didn’t know that people other than your friends and family would stumble upon your blog and start reading it. Call me naïve to the world wide web. In 2012 I started using instagram and loved finding new runners to […]

Hi Friends! One of the changes I’m making in 2014 is incorporating yoga into my routine. {I have taken classes on and off for years but nothing consistent and nothing past the beginner level} In 2013 I started doing pilates and spin for the first time, took bootcamp classes, body works classes and even a […]
