August 23, 2016 at 6:10 am

Some days, it occurs to me that I’m not getting any younger. I’ve been extremely excited to have very few running related aches and pains lately. [Knock wood.] But not so fast, I did a pretty challenging yoga class and now I am achy and sore in funny spots. Luckily, the nice folks from Zim’s offered me a new product from their Max line to…

It’s really cool to see small companies grow and thrive. Stacy and I went to Cleveland to run Kim’s first post partum half marathon in 2011 and were introduced to Good Greens bars. At the time, they had six flavors. Since then, they’ve added non-dairy yogurt flavors and offer twelve thirteen varieties. They sent me a box of 12 plus and awesome t-shirt. Good news!…

Guardian Wilderness Backyard

There’s a lot of talk about mosquitoes this summer with Zika at the Olympics and all. I was offered the opportunity to test out two DEET free repellents from Guardian. Guardian DEET-Free Insect Repellents offer protection from mosquitoes and ticks with only plant-based, non-toxic ingredients. There are two levels of protection from Guardian: 4-Hour Backyard and 8-Hour Wilderness. Both versions are plant based, non-toxic, DEET…

Find Your Spirit Animal – Good Zebra #Giveaway

August 15, 2016 at 6:53 am

A good day is one that starts with the question, “would you like to try my friend Erika’s cookies?” That was a great Monday morning email from my friend, Ben. I thought maybe he meant Erika’s Cookies which I’ve seen in NYC. He was referring to Good Zebra Spirit Animal Crackers. I said “yes” sight unseen (because… cookies), but loved the Good Zebra vibe on…
