New year, big goals!

After last year’s ups, downs and big life changes, I’m itching to crush some major running goals. The first one: train wisely! After developing a bunion on my right foot and finally figuring out the right combo of shoes, KT tape (or not) and toe spacer to not have bouts of numbness or pain after…

December!

I cannot believe that we are already into the last month of 2016! This year has flown by incredibly fast. Granted, my day job kept me engrossed in a seemingly never ending political cycle. I work in the finishing department of a commercial print facility and was surrounded by some sort of political mailing of…

February Update

As the days of February are quickly ticking away, I’ve been busy! Training for Rock the Parkway has officially started and I’ve had a bit of overtime at job #1. I’m still spotty when it comes to getting my strength training in. However, I have been working on organizing the rambled mess that my blog…

Goodbye 2015!

As it is the start of a fresh new year, I’m going to reflect on all that has been 2015. This year my running has improved greatly and I tackled a whole host of new challenges. I made new friends. I started to believe in myself as a runner and a whole host of doors…

Chase the bird challenge!

Starting on November 1st, Oiselle issued the #chasethebird challenge. I started off the week with a bang! I ran 2 miles to the gym, did Oiselle’s Dirty Dozen core workout and ran 2 miles home. All of this after having had a few drinks on Halloween night. Ok, so it was more than a few…

Ahhh!!

I am five days away from my 33rd birthday. Six days away from running my first marathon. My tapering has been a weird mix of excitement, anticipation, fear and feeling generally unsettled. Today’s three mile run was ok, but my legs definitely felt like tree trunks. Saturday’s six mile run was a lot better. I tackled…

20 Minute Challenge & Hoka One One demo!

Yesterday was the annual 20 Minute Challenge for the Running Room, where I earn extra money to feed my running habit. We have finally started carrying Hoka One One shoes in the store but not in sizes small enough for me to try them on and get a feel for the shoes. Luckily we had…

May Day!

Goodness! I’ve been completely ignoring my blog! I wish I could say that my 90 Day Transformation has been going well…but it hasn’t. Though I am eating better, mainly as a result of moving in with Kyle, I haven’t really kicked my muffin top. A big part of this is likely due to training for…

Mid January check…

Well, last week was a bit better on the workout front. I managed to get in a few days of Beginner Shred and ran both days of the weekend. However, this week has been a bust. Been feeling run down exhausted and people have been passing around the flu at work. I dislike when my…
