music

All I find myself doing these days is dreaming of warmer weather. Music is about the only thing getting me through long runs – that and thinking about laying out on the beach sometime in the near future. If you need some new music to help you make it through your runs – check out this […]

Valentines Day Gifts

Looking for something special to give the runner in your life? Here are some of my ideas! For my 26th marathon my husband gave me the Lagos Heart of Las Vegas Necklace to remind me of the Rock N Roll Vegas Marathon. It holds a special place in my heart {pun intended} because it reminds […]

My part of the #PathToFit campaign with Garmin and Whole Foods is coming to an end this week. Each week they have given us topics to talk about and we get to “run” with them and make them ours. It’s been nice having someone give me a topic to think about rather than getting lost […]

Whole 30 1

I survived and THRIVED on Whole30 this past January. My weight stayed right around where I was in the fall but I lost over 4 1/2 inches. A solid inch from each thigh was the icing on the cake, that I won’t be eating This Whole30 challenge was very different for me than the last […]

I’m less active in winter, there is no way around it. I enjoy snow, but not being cold. I’d prefer to look at the fresh snowfall from the comfort of my couch with a cup of tea in hand, than get all bundled up and head outside. During the summer I can’t spend enough time […]

Whole Foods 3

Before I started working on the #PathToFit campaign my opinion of Whole Foods Market was GREAT food but expensive prices. I had this opinion without ever trying to shop for all my groceries there. It was a store I went shopping at when I wanted to splurge. What I learned by trying to shop Whole Foods on […]

blogposts

I’ve been thinking about this topic for a while now…..should you delete old blog posts? I’ve heard arguments on both sides, both make sense. I’ve read a bunch of articles I found on my trusty friend google, and can see from an SEO point of view why you might not want to get rid of […]

I’m a big fan of fitness DVD’s. For starters, they are less expensive than a gym membership. Secondly you can do them in the privacy of your own home. You can make all the mistakes you want, and not feel the same pressure you would in a classroom filled with other people who seem to […]

Ran 4 miles on the treadmill this morning before Colton came downstairs and told me that Simon was gone. I told him not to lie to me, or I was going to get upset. He said Chloe was crying, he was gone, and he wasn’t lying.   I still didn’t believe him – he is […]

No just 2

Over the past 10 or so years, I’ve worked more race expos than I can count. There is one takeaway that comes from every single expo that continues to blow my mind. The word JUST. Me: What race distance are you running this weekend? Runner: Just the half marathon. I know it’s not the marathon, but it’s long for me, […]

Today is Day 13 of Whole 30 and I will admit I “cheated” by weighing myself. I 100% understand why you aren’t supposed to weigh yourself during this program. Day 1 you take photos, measurements, and weigh yourself and you aren’t supposed to do it again for remainder of the 30 days. BUT….this morning I felt […]

Marathon Monday 2

“The highlight of this month’s workout music round-up is the balance it strikes between perennial favorites and relative newcomers. By veering between the two, the mix manages to send both familiar and fresh at the same time. Starting with the hits, you’ve got a pair of collaborations uniting Jessie J with 2 Chainz and Wyclef […]

Time On The Clock

Once upon a time I loved writing race recaps…..I loved talking about the highs, the lows, the points where I pushed through and the times I wanted to hang up my running shoes forever. This was when there were all of 10 people reading my blog, all of whom were my friends. Friends have a […]

Best of 2014

“With few exceptions, workout songs can be distinguished by two main attributes: popularity and speed. If a song has cracked the Top 40 chart and has a tempo above 125 beats per minute (BPM), there’s a good chance you’ll hear it in the gym. In this look back at 2014, you’ll find lots of songs […]

Finally synched up my Tom Tom watch with the My Sports program on my computer! Once upon a time I was ruled by numbers when it came to my running, now I’m lucky when I remember how many miles I’ve ran that week. In 2015 I plan on finding a happy medium between tracking and […]
