This past week of training runs for the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon were interesting and I have had to be flexible and just go with it. Plus, last week I was just in a “funk” energy-wise so I had to fight through that as well. I was reading various running articles and I came across the affirmation, “embrace the suck” and […]

I hope your weekend has been a good one! Friday I was supposed to go for a 7 mile run but it ended up being 6.45. I figured teaching a 1-hour Spin class later in the day would make up for the .55 miles! I headed to the Tidal Basin (the Cherry Blossoms should be blooming soon!) and here are […]

We always have a great time in Myrtle Beach and of course, we always have great food! I try to eat healthy 85-90% of the time but […]

We took a little winter break down to Myrtle Beach this weekend and I was able to get a 7-mile training run in on the beach! It was perfect weather and I could have ran forever! I didn’t worry about the pace on this run: I just wanted to enjoy the scenery. I started out running past one of my favorite […]

A new week is here and I am so happy to be typing this post from Barnes & Noble! Usually one Monday out of the month I come here to check out all of the new magazines that have come out (my guilty pleasure) but now that Chris got me a lap top for my birthday, I can “work” a […]
