I thought Friday would be a great day of food to share as I prepare for my 8th half marathon on Sunday. I will not be racing the race on Sunday, but running it more like a training run. I hope to PR in the Columbus Half Marathon in October.
When I know that I [...]
Ohio ladies, listen up! Sorry, gentleman, this one is for the girls. Have you heard of the women’s only mud run series called Pretty Muddy? Well, grab a beverage (coffee is my choice this early morning) and read on.
The Columbus area Pretty Muddy Women’s Mud Run will take place on September 29, [...]
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.

In an effort to make smarter food choices, I have [...]
Three days. I am so excited for the start of the 2012 Olympics that I can’t even put it into words! I have always loved to watch gymnastics – Mary Lou Retton was my hero back in 1984 when I was 11 years old. I remember getting up each morning and being glued to the [...]
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, [...]
