3rd Quarter Running Round Up + CEP Compression Giveaway

September 30, 2013 at 6:04 am

I always say that I am more of a “blogging runner” than a running blogger. I do like to write about running, races and tips/tricks for running but that is not enough to call this a running blog. That said, like I did in Q1 and Q2, here is my running recap of the third quarter of 2013. Races run this Q– 12! 4 more half marathons (yup, that…

Start the Day Right! On-the-Go Breakfast Reviews + Giveaways

September 24, 2013 at 5:46 am

As I have said before, eating healthy on the go can be a big challenge – especially for breakfast. And now since I am eliminating gluten, eggs and dairy for the short term, healthy “on-the-go” breakfasts (well any breakfast for that matter) can be a challenge.

Liz Lovely is Lovely AND Delicious! Review + Giveaway!

September 19, 2013 at 5:35 am

When I started my elimination diet 64 days ago (who is counting?), I vowed not to search for gluten free, egg free, dairy free (onion and bean free, too) “junk” food.

On the Road Often? You Need an Ohyo Bottle (Review+Giveaway)

September 12, 2013 at 5:40 am

I love to travel and I love products that make being on the road easier. So, I was delighted to receive an Ohyo bottle for review. What is an Ohyo bottle? It is a “collapsabottle” (collapsible water bottle) that’s easy to take anywhere. When it is empty it “squishes” down to about 2 1/2 inches high. When you are ready to use it, you can extend it (think…

Swirlgear is a Chicago-based, women-owned company focused on making running gear that women want to wear. Swirlgear has embarked on a fundraising Kickstarter campaign to enable them to launch their new line.

Yet Another On-the-Go Snacks Review + Giveaway

September 4, 2013 at 5:41 am

As I have said before, eating healthy on the go can be a big challenge. It is so easy to grab whatever is around. I find this is especially true for airplane flights/airports and long work meetings. And now since I am eliminating wheat, gluten and dairy for the short term, healthy snacks can be a bit tough to find on the go. I was fortunate…
