Playmobil Mom and Stroller 4

I’m always on the hunt for cute running related gifts – I was VERY excited when I found this little lady! I bought her and a couple others for gifts on amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Playmobil-4697-Special-Mother-Stroller/dp/B00316YO16/ I love her so much I did not give her to my kids {though she does go missing frequently and show up […]

Powercap 4

Panther Vision sent me one of their POWERCAPS lighted running hats to test out on my early morning runs! I wasn’t aware that I was wearing a men’s hat {blame it on my large-for-a-girl head}. It’s adjustable in the back so it fit my head fine and was comfortable while running. The detailing on the […]

Fit Buds 1

I was sent two headphones from the Dara Torres collection to test out. I’m a big Yurbuds fan and haven’t found many earphones/buds that can compete with them in terms of being comfortable and staying in place during long distance running. I decided however to give these a try because I’m a big fan of *back ups.* […]

July 26 3

I’ve been trying new things lately, realizing more and more than if I want to feel stronger running then I have to pay attention to all the details that aren’t running. Running is what I will call the *easy* part. In the past 6 months I’ve tried Spin, Pilates, Zumba, Body Works {with abs} and now […]

Good Runs Happen

Last Friday I did something I don’t typically do. I quit. 3 miles in to my run I couldn’t take it any longer. The heat and humidity were making me feel like I wanted to throw up. I tried to push through and remind myself that summer running is hard but it didn’t work. I […]

Stop Slacking 1

Running is hard. There isn’t a person I have ever met that has not at some point thought to themselves, this is really hard. That being said, there are runs that even though they are more work than sitting on your couch watching tv, are still relatively easy as working out goes. This is your comfort […]
