If could go back in time and tell my non-runner self a few things, here is what I would start with… You will not look like a gazelle running. Run anyways. Move to the right when someone is passing you. A nod of the head serves as a hello when you are to out of […]

Colton and I ran 6 stroller miles together this morning. He wanted to know why I wasn’t running faster, all while I could barely muster up enough breath to tell him that I was running as fast as I could. The kid is a mini drill Sargent. 6 stroller miles with this guy! I was […]

Last Friday I spend a good part of the day filming with Voice Of America. The TV show they were filming for is about women expanding upon their traditional roles as caretakers of their children and their husband and adding fitness/running to their lives. I am all for anything that promotes women’s running and health, so […]

1. I believe in the power of a run. 2. I believe that there is more good than bad. 3. I believe that life is about putting one foot in front of the other. 4. I believe that even putting one foot in front of the other may be hard at times. 5. I believe that […]

Wentworth Miller

I’m not someone who usually clicks on the what’s trending section of Facebook but today I did. I loved watching Wentworth Miller in Prison Break, so I was curious what about him was trending. What I read was nothing short of amazing and I’m sharing it’s entirety here because I believe more conversations need to be […]

Last week I shared with you that I’ve been a bit stubborn about my food allergies. So stubborn in fact that after I wrote that post my mind reasoned that maybe giving up the foods was enough, surely coffee was not causing me any problems. I mean it’s one thing to be allergic to carrots […]

I typically like Monday. I’m not one of those people who dreads the start of a new week, in fact I quite like it. I like new beginnings, a weekly fresh start. These days 5 AM alarm on a Monday is tough. I dragged my butt out of bed at 5:30 and was ready to take […]

I Have A Runners Body

Oh wow you run? You don’t look like a runner. What sport did you play growing up? Hockey? Oh gosh, I thought marathon runners were super thin….so you really run marathons? How many did you say you have run? I’m willing to bet the vast majority of us have had an insult or two about our […]

Hi friends! I can’t believe this week is almost over. My kids are on spring break, so it’s been a bit more hectic around here! This morning we went and picked up new I Run This Body shirts and sweatshirts and then made a stop on the way back home for a little outdoor walking […]

One of the most frustrating things I encountered when I was a new-ish runner is that everything was targeted either at individuals who just started running (as in they may have just gotten off the couch last week) or towards die-hard experienced runners.   Here are some speed workouts for those of you who find yourself in […]

I’ve fallen a time or two while running, literally. One of the most memorable times was while I was pregnant with Chloe and Eric and I were on an early morning run together, I tripped on something and he quite literally caught me. Before that fall, I was mostly fearless while running pregnant. That fall […]

Sunday’s race convinced me that I have to get serious about what’s going on with this dizziness/vertigo/whatever the heck it is. I can’t take living like this anymore. I want to look {and feel} this happy every day of my life. Two years ago when I had my allergies tested, it came back that I […]
