Back To School Strength Circuit

As I have started training for my next marathon I am still trying to incorporate strength workouts when I can. I’m no longer taking body pump classes because I feel like they are pretty tough on my body and take up a little more time than I would like. I’m trying to focus everything on […]

Pre-Race Nerves

On Wednesday night I had my first dream about the Philadelphia Marathon. I say my first because I’m sure there will be many more to come. I mean, it’s still 12+ weeks away so I was a little surprised that I had one so soon. I was always one to have dreams about going back […]

Meal Planning and Meal Prep Tips Part 1: Getting Organized

Philadelphia Marathon Training Week 1

I survived the first week! It’s a good feeling, but at the same time, the first week was one of the easier ones and there is still a long way to go. As I mentioned, I had to switch the days around a little because I had to do my long run on Friday. I […]

Why Runners Should Give Yoga A Try

It seems that many of the runners I know also incorporate yoga into their routine. I have been trying to practice yoga at least once a week for about a year now, although I tried yoga for the first time something like 8 years ago. Lately I have found myself appreciating its importance more than […]
