The Art of the Long Run

IMG_9015

The long run is the cornerstone to any long distance training plan (marathon and half marathon especially). Often times the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of the long run are ignored with the simple instruction to “run far.” There’s a bit more to it than just tacking on miles and with fall training plans in full swing, [...]

Making Your Running a Family Affair

Running the CHaD Cam's Course Fun Run together in October 2013.

I’m in the running to be on the cover of Runner’s World Magazine and I’d love your vote! When I step back and tally up the amount of time that goes into my running, I realize it is a lot. And it’s not just the time on the road it’s the cross training, the running [...]

I have most definitely been loving summer lately. It doesn’t matter how hot it gets or how humid it is I’ll always be a summer girl. I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve been loving lately this summer. Gear: MPG Shorts from TJMaxx. While browsing TJMaxx recently for picture frames I took a quick peak [...]

A Second Chance

One of the great things about running is that when you come off a disappointing run or race, redemption is just a foot step away. In most cases all you have to do is lace up those shoes and head out for another run or sign up for another race, beat down those doubts and [...]

ProCompression Marathon Sleeve Review & Giveaway

IMG_2064

I’m a huge fan of compression for recovery. In my last marathon training cycle I used compression religiously after long runs and my 20 mile race. I think it made a big difference in speeding my recovery between hard efforts, enabling me to run higher mileage. I’ve tried several different pairs of compression socks from [...]

Training Update: July Week 1

Screen Shot 2014-07-07 at 8.29.35 PM

I thought I’d do a little update on my training sice real life training took place last week. Not just two mile runs back and forth over a .63 mile stretch of flat road next to my house until my knee started getting cranky. No none of that nonsense. I made it into the 30′s [...]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Popsicles–Summer Fun with Stonyfield

Screen Shot 2014-07-06 at 2.28.13 PM

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are my own. There’s something about summer that makes me feel just a little nostalgic; recalling childhood summers filled with endless hours on the swing set, trips to the beach and picnic lunches. Of course the old stand-by picnic food was peanut butter and jelly. [...]
