Running, Sitting, and Low Back Pain {Guest Post}

Today I am sharing some words of wisdom from my chiropractor, Dr. Blake Kalkstein. I have been seeing Dr. Blake for about a year for adjustments, ART, and rehab exercises. If anyone in the northern Baltimore area is looking for a chiropractor I would definitely recommend him! They even take walk-ins so I can just […]

Weekly Wrap: Bridal Shower Weekend and Half-Marathon Ready

A few weeks ago I started thinking about maybe signing up for a half-marathon in May. It would be two weeks from this past weekend, so I didn’t want to do a long run or hard workout next weekend. However, I haven’t really been doing long runs and I figured I would feel better about […]

Port to Fort 6k Race Recap

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I signed up for a last-minute 6k last weekend. I had run the Port to Fort 6k once before (in 2009) before I was really into “racing”. It’s weird to think back on that race, because my perspective on running was so different. It was only a year later that […]

A Last-Minute Race Week

I must have been hit by the racing bug after my 10k last weekend because a few days ago I decided to sign up to run a 6k on Saturday. I’ll share my race recap tomorrow, but because it was a last-minute decision I didn’t do anything different during the week to prepare for the […]

Sole of the City 10k Race Recap

I have been itching to set a new 10k PR for a few years now. I’ve only done a few 10ks over the years, and most of them were not PR opportunities. Like the Dreaded Druid Hills…I was lucky I survived that one with the steep climbs after being sick! My best 10k was set […]

A Crazy Week and First Race of the Year

The past few weeks have involved quite a bit of traveling, but this weekend I was finally home. I was excited to run my first race of the year on Saturday (a 10k) and also spend some time relaxing and catching up on things I haven’t done on the weekends when I was away. However, […]

Total Body (30 Minute) Strength Circuit

Last week I came up with a strength circuit that I though I would share today! I was getting bored with all of my usual routines and felt like I was rushing exercises when I did them on my own, so I decided to create this circuit based on time. If I know I will […]

Another Weekend Away And Weekly Workouts

This was one of those weeks where running just had to take a backseat to everything else. It wasn’t really planned, but as the week progressed I realized I would just do what I could and not worry about it too much. I got back from Arkansas on Sunday evening, and then jumped right into […]

6 Weeks Without Coffee and 1 Year In Our House

It’s one of those days where I woke up at 3:30am and couldn’t fall back to sleep. This doesn’t happen “often” but enough that it’s annoying. I feel like I always wake up super early on days I can sleep in a little bit. Does this happen to anyone else? Well, I think I have […]
