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 [...]
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 [...]
Running in the heat and humidity that we have had this summer has definitely taken a toll on my body. In my quest to stay hydrated this summer, I found and sampled a new-to-me coconut water last week. Hannah and I took a road trip to Cleveland last week to see my Grandma and I [...]
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’s MIT workout run was cancelled due to excessive heat. Temperatures are supposed to soar to 103 degrees with a heat index of 110.

Who likes free stuff? I do!! I have a pretty awesome giveaway for you guys today, but first I need to tell you about my love for Sharkies.
First and foremost, how cute are these snacks? Okay, so I am getting close to being 40, but I can still act like a [...]
Saturday mornings seem like the perfect time to talk protein bars since I am normally doing my long runs as my posts go live. As a runner, I have learned that what may work for one person, doesn’t always necessarily work for another. As long as a product is gluten-free, I am willing to give [...]
Just because I was “on vacation” didn’t mean that I didn’t get my miles in. My mom & sister snapped this picture on their way to take my nephew to school. Fortunately they caught me before I hit the killer hills and felt like dying.
After my tour of the hardest hills I have [...]
I was the “lucky” recipient of a So Lucky Gifts Active Box full of Honey Stinger products the other day! I love Honey Stinger gels, so I was excited to try the protein bars & organic energy chews. Check out this beautiful packaging from So Lucky Gifts:
I didn’t want to ruin it [...]
