I had the pleasure of reviewing a pretty cool product over the past couple of weeks. I often speak about the importance of fueling properly before, during and after my workouts and I am always up for new products to help me reach those goals.
The coolest thing about CocoNutz Fuel is the nifty [...]
I can’t remember where I first heard about NOW Energy Bars and Snack Bar Manuka Newtons, but I knew that they sounded like something I would like. I was fortunate enough to receive some samples to review and I have fallen in love!
In an effort to make smarter food choices, I have [...]
I learn something new about myself on a regular basis. Something that may have worked for me in the past may not work for me now. I have mentioned in the past that I have struggled on and off with anorexia a couple of times in my life. There are days when I can’t fathom [...]
In my quest to find fuel that agrees with my stomach during my runs, I made the switch to Honey Stinger gels. I have tried the chews before, but not the gels. The first one I tried was the classic Chocolate. To be honest, I was not a fan. I didn’t let that deter me, [...]

Today I ran my 7th half marathon! Knowing that I wasn’t going to race this race, I offered to pace a friend to reach her goal of finishing under 2:15. I can’t tell you what a rewarding experience this was for me. This is the second time that I have paced a friend in a [...]
If you would have told me 2 years ago that I needed to slow down in order to become a faster runner, I would have laughed. Why would I do that? I was of the mindset that each run in my training plan should be run at a fairly fast pace, including my long [...]
