Refueling on-the-go is a way of life these days. In a perfect world we would be able prepare a meal to refuel after every hard workout, but we all know the world is far from perfect. The next best thing is a bar you can eat on-the-go that is packed full of the important nutrients [...]
Everyone seems to dread Mondays. It’s back to work or school and the hectic schedules that keep us on our toes. My Monday morning started at 5:00 AM, when I got up for a 4 mile run. I ran errands until 1:00 PM, but I found some pretty rockin’ deals to make my Monday pretty [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]
