All Good Things…

All good things must come to and end, right?  My time as a Verizon Health & Fitness Voices blogger/participant is coming to an end next week.  I thought today would be a good time to recap the devices I have been able to try out.

It was just about 6 months ago when I [...]

What Not to Do

Today’s training plan called for speed work.  I had plans to get out before the sun came up, but weather and staying up too late contributed to that not happening.  I headed out around 10:00 AM to do my prescribed miles – 1 mile warm up, 2 x 2 miles at HMP (half marathon pace), [...]

The Spirit of the Marathon II

I was offered a unique opportunity to see Spirit of the Marathon II on June 12, 2013, but was unable to make it due to a prior commitment.  I was bummed because I really enjoyed the first Spirit of the Marathon movie.  I asked a fellow MIT coach (Chris Kelley) if he would be interested [...]

For the Love of Brooks

Once I find a running shoe that I like, I am fiercely loyal to that brand.  If you are a runner, you are well aware that proper running shoes are very important pieces to running pain and injury free.  It took me a while to find the right shoes, but when I did, there was [...]

Six Days…

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 [...]

Gluten-Free Eats

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 [...]

April Fool’s Day & Running Chat

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 [...]

Gluten-Free Protein-Packed Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  I am sure you have heard that before, right?  I used to skip breakfast and looking back now, I don’t know why I did that or how I made it through the morning.  Now wonder I was starving my 11:00 AM!  Now that I am older [...]

Half Marathon Training Update

It is just about a month now until my first of six half marathons in 2013. I have settled into a good training routine and have tweaked some numbers pertaining to my heart rate zones to help ensure I am recovering properly between my workouts. There are a couple of key components to my recovery [...]

Simple Steak Salad

I have been participating in some evening exercise classes recently which makes my dinner time later than the rest of the family’s.  I can’t very well eat a full meal and then go run or to an intense exercise class.  I found what works best for me is to fuel before hand with a gluten-free [...]
