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 [...]
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 the [...]
When I was growing up I really disliked all things coconut. I may even go as far to say that I hated coconut, though I don’t like to use the word “hate”. As we grow, our tastes change, just as our bodies do. Along with coconut, I didn’t like peanut butter or hamburgers. I was [...]

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 [...]
Today is April Fool’s Day! Do you like to play practical jokes on others or do you prefer to pretend that today is just like any other day? I have played some fun jokes over the years. The one that stand out as my favorite is the time I emailed an ultrasound picture to family [...]
I love when protein bars taste like a decadent treat! The FITzee Bars I sampled recently reminded me of apple pie and chocolate chip blondies! What better way to refuel after a hard workout or hold me over to my next meal?
