End of the Year Thoughts

With the New Year right around the corner, I figured it was a good time for this post. As many of you know, I have suffered on and off with anorexia for many years. I believe that I am in a better place in my recovery now than I have ever been before. I may [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–December 9, 2013

Welcome to the second week of December! Our weather has been more like January with snow and ice storms.  Kids had their first snow day last Friday and mom got to run on the snowy trail early Saturday with some friends. 

What a great day for a run!!

What is that saying?  [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–October 14, 2013

Only 6 days to the Nationwide Columbus Marathon & Half Marathon.  This will be my 4th time running the half and I can’t wait!  There is such an amazing atmosphere and crowd support throughout the entire city during the race.  This is one race that I don’t bother with headphones/music…I simply enjoy the sound of [...]

All Good Things…

All good things must come to and end, right?  My time as a Verizon Health & Fitness Voices blogger/participant is coming to an end next week.  I thought today would be a good time to recap the devices I have been able to try out.

It was just about 6 months ago when I [...]

ER, What?

Last summer I discovered that drinking water wasn’t enough to keep me hydrated when exercising in the heat and humidity.  I would fight dehydration after each and every long run or hard workout.  That telltale headache would start to creep in and the rest of my day would be spent fighting to rehydrate myself.  Once [...]

But I Would Walk 500 Miles…

I just hit the 500 mile mark with my Fitbit One this morning and received this awesome badge, and reminder of a great song (and movie – Benny & Joon). 

And if you don’t already have the song in your head, check this out. 

In all fairness I haven’t really walked all [...]

What Not to Do

Today’s training plan called for speed work.  I had plans to get out before the sun came up, but weather and staying up too late contributed to that not happening.  I headed out around 10:00 AM to do my prescribed miles – 1 mile warm up, 2 x 2 miles at HMP (half marathon pace), [...]

The Real Wednesday Post

Yesterday morning I sat at my laptop and cranked out a few blog posts, including this “Wordless Wednesday” post, only to realize a few hours later that it wasn’t Wednesday.  Nope, it was only Tuesday.  I guess I was really excited to get that post up, huh?  That or maybe I am in a rain-induced [...]

I Am Enough

Sunday mornings are spent browsing blogs and Facebook as I drink my first cup of coffee and begin to wake up.  This past Sunday I happened across Jill’s post about the “i am enough project”.  This post really hit home with me.  Why?  Part of the reason I have been struggling on and off for [...]

The Spirit of the Marathon II

I was offered a unique opportunity to see Spirit of the Marathon II on June 12, 2013, but was unable to make it due to a prior commitment.  I was bummed because I really enjoyed the first Spirit of the Marathon movie.  I asked a fellow MIT coach (Chris Kelley) if he would be interested [...]
