I’ve been lazy lately with my running playlist, opting to hold my phone while I run and listen to Pandora. Pandora is great for short runs, but skip too many songs and you are left listening to some tunes you might not enjoy on a long run. If you are more on top of things […]

This morning I’m hopping on a flight and making my way to Vegas for the third year in a row. I’m excited to represent Mazda this year as a Game Changer via their partnership with Rock N Roll Marathons.

Reading through the entries for the Saucony 26Strong marathon team has been amazing. Literally, I wish I could pick all of you, or have a blog post monthly where you all shared these types of stories – it’s so motivating and inspiring to me. I don’t love the word INSPIRE as silly as that sounds. […]

I firmly believe in my head and heart that I GET to run rather than HAVE to run, yet I often have to remind myself of this fact. Lately running has felt like something I have to do instead of something that I make time for because I enjoy it. At night I always go […]

On November 20th, 2011. I registered the blog name www.dreambigrunlong.blogspot.com  and the website URL www.dreambigrunlong.com and both have sat there since that day waiting for a big dream of mine to come true. As someone who used to work for and closely with Ellen and Elizabeth the founders of Moving Comfort – I have been inspired […]

Way back when I first joined facebook – notes were popular. I had almost forgotten about those little things, when someone recently commented on the only note I ever posted. {Note: Apparently I skipped #18 – I probably had it in my head but didn’t type it – my mind works much too fast for […]

This morning I got a VERY exciting tweet from my friend and coaching client Tess. I love it for many reasons. One of the reasons is because through coaching, Tess and I have become friends, it felt extra special that she was the one who told me. She is a beautiful soul and I feel […]

Prior to Columbus Marathon I put it out there that I had BIG DREAMS of one day running a 3:10 marathon. When I decided on that DREAM I didn’t think I could or would even come close to it for a VERY LONG time – it seemed like a BIG DREAM [and a huge goal]. Then decided to go […]

I coach myself each training cycle. I am my easiest client because I don’t really have a set in stone training plan. I found early on in running that having a laid out plan before me does not motivate me – in fact it does quite the opposite. I stress the night before about the […]

This may just be one of the most fun reviews I have done. As most of you know my tag line is DREAM BIG RUN LONG. Those who know me know that these four words sum up how I feel about most things in my life. Hubby got me an ipod shuffle for Christmas engraved […]
