Happy 2016 my friends! I can’t believe it’s already the 13th day of this year. I had every intention of posting here every day in January. January is a big month in the health, fitness and running world and I wanted to be a part of that, but life has gotten in the way – […]

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 […]

Second recap in a month. I feel like this is some sort of giant step for me. Two recaps, means two races. Two races that made me really happy even though they went nothing like I had imagined. I don’t really plan anymore for how things will go in races. I’ve been running races for 14 […]

Here goes nothing! Haven’t done one of these recap things in a while, I’m {finally} at a place where I can talk about races and not worry about what others do or don’t think. Growing up and maturing is fun like that. I’ll do a race review next week for those of you curious about […]

My latest post for Women’s Running is up on their blog HERE For those of you who love instagram {or are addicted like me}, the post is basically a list of popular running hashtags and why you should use them {to make new friends!}. Long gone are the days when it was something hush hush if you […]

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 […]

I’m back home from a whirlwind weekend in San Antonio at the Rock n Roll Expo and Half Marathon. My heart is full, my legs are tired, and it is back to all things mommyhood. Our elf on the shelf did not move last night, I’m blaming that on my tired legs and the rush […]

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. You can read about the partnership here — http://www.mazdausamedia.com/COMPETITOR-GROUP-AND-MAZDA-ANNOUNCE-EXPANDED-PARTNERSHIP I’ll be in the Mazda booth today […]

When my children are bad we typically take something away from them that means something to them. Today has been one of those days where Colton is a crank and then is super loving – up – down – up – down. The only positive to the pissy mood he is in, is that he keeps saying […]

Right after I ran Rock N Roll 1/2 for fun I headed to LA to meet up with 2 other 26 Strong teams that had been chosen for a Saucony/Competitor Magazine photo shoot. When I flew out there I had no idea that my cadet, Danielle and I would end up on the cover of […]

  If’ I’m being truthful, it wasn’t love at first sight. In my heart I knew maybe our paths crossed for a reason, but I’m old enough to know that things come and go. As days turned to weeks, weeks to months, and months to years, I felt like this was something that could possibly last. I […]
