Today is day four of my early to bed and early to rise routine. I’ve set my alarm for five and haven’t been hitting snooze. One thing I learned the first time I transitioned to early morning wake ups was that hitting snooze was the death of me. I never went fully back to sleep […]

I’ve been lacking motivation lately when it comes to marathon training. This happens every single winter and every single winter I forget all about the fact that I really don’t like running in the cold. I’m a super sweaty person, as in even when I’m cold I’m sweating. I’ve been to doctors about said sweating […]

I’m at the point in training where I’m questioning why I signed up to run a spring marathon. I’m tired of being cold. Despite my house being a lovely 71 degrees, I walk around wearing a hat and finger-less gloves. The thought of running 18 miles outside this weekend is enough to make me want […]

As a runner, who doesn’t always listen to music, and who mostly trains alone for marathons, I have a lot of time to think. I think about anything and everything. Some days the thoughts can be maddening other days they feel invigorating, as if the run is giving me a gift. A gift I would […]

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 […]
