What I Ate And Did On My Day Off

On Tuesday I was off from work (okay so I only worked Monday this week, and before that I hadn’t been in since 12/17 due to being sick and traveling…) and it was really nice to have a day at home rather than using a vacation day for traveling. However, I have a hard time […]

Workouts 12/14-12/20 and Coaching Giveaway Winner!

I had high hopes of getting in some good workouts this week before the holidays begin, but stomach bugs and running just don’t mix well. So a few unplanned rest days happened. I typically find time to workout even when I am traveling so its not like I won’t do anything next week, I just […]

Meal Planning (and Not Much Prep) Week of 12/14-12/20

This was one of my biggest meal planning/prep week fails in a  long time. First off, I know I wouldn’t have much time to prep so I planned for meals that would be easy enough to make throughout the week. I also asked Rob to help out with a few things over the weekend while I […]

Fruits And Veggies And Weird Eating Habits (WIAW)

Do you ever pay attention to how many servings of fruits and veggies you eat in a day? I usually don’t, but once in a while I like to think about it. For some reason on Sundays I always struggle to eat more than a couple of servings, so Mondays are a good day for […]

What Helped Me Run A Faster Marathon

After the Philadelphia Marathon, a few people had asked me what helped me to cut 15 minutes off my time in 6 months. I had wanted to post about this for awhile, but really wanted to think about what is was that helped me. I realized it wasn’t really just one or two things, it […]

Year Of Running 2014

2014 was quite a year in running for me. Originally I had wanted to aim for running 2014 miles this year (tracking with Run This Year) but I realized around October that I wouldn’t hit that number. I’m really not even disappointed, because I still think I will hit close to 1900 which is by far […]
