Saturday, May 4, 2013 marked the third time I have run the Cap City Half Marathon and the 13th Half Marathon I have run over the past 4 years. This year the Cap City course was a little different than it was in years past. This change was made before the Boston Bombings, though there [...]
My last half marathon of the spring season is 6 days from today. The Cap City Half Marathon will be my 3rd half this spring and 13th half overall. I have learned a lot about myself and my body over the past 4-5 years of running, but there is always more to learn. My current [...]
A few weeks back I shared my fascination with a baked sweet potato topped with almond butter. While I was running with my friend, Melissa, she suggested a way to make that meal even better…bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup! Duh, why didn’t I think of that? It wasn’t long before I gave the [...]
Would you like to have more hours in the day? I sure would! While there is nothing I can do to give you more hours in the day, I do want to share a new protein shake, Evolve, for women that is packed full of vitamins and easy to grab and go. Refueling on [...]
I had plans for a post today, but like many other bloggers, I don’t feel that anything is more important than keeping those affected by the tragedy at the Boston Marathon in our thoughts and prayers.

Half marathon #11 is in the bag! This race also happened to be the first of 6 half marathons that I have on my race schedule this year. Xenia, Ohio is roughly an hour and 20 minutes away from Fleet Feet Columbus, where I met up with 5 Run DMC girls to head out.
Sometimes I wish I had an on/off switch for my brain so I could quiet the madness. My brain is busy enough on any given “normal” day, but throw half marathon tapering into the mix and I have a whole lot of noise going on. Last month I shared my review of the book “Life [...]
An early morning coaches breakfast with running legend, Bill Rodgers, and 12 miles was going to make for a long morning. Historically my 12 mile runs haven’t been too bad, but when I woke up and my legs were sore from BodyPump yesterday, I knew it might be challenging. Being part of MIT Marathoners affords [...]
Most runners prefer to run outside and not on the dreadmill treadmill. Since I am one of those runners that much prefers to be outside, Aaron questioned my sanity when I purchased a treadmill a couple of months back. “You hate the treadmill!”, he said. Yes, I do, but I hate not running more. So, [...]
