Currently… Finally Fall But Feels Like Aug-Tober

October 15, 2017 at 9:44 am

Currently… A post on “things of the moment” for me (#18). [Inspired by Marcia and other bloggers.] State of things: The last six weeks has been super busy with travel and events. It’s been tough to coordinate everything and at times has been a bit overwhelming. I’ve been taking things one day at a time. I’m trying to enjoy work travels as much as possible…

Try It Tuesday: Join Me For Run 10 Feed 10!

October 10, 2017 at 6:26 am

A few years ago, I saw an ad in Women’s Health for a new run series called Run 10 Feed 10. The aim was simple – to raise money to feed millions of Americans who are hungry. For each runner who signs up to run 10K, ten meals are provided to hungry Americans in the runner’s community. This is an easy way to make a…

It’s Friday, so I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for Friday Five 2.0. The theme this week is scheduling. I’m horribly over-scheduled and way too busy at the moment, so I’m going to go off topic. I’ve spectated at the Chicago Marathon 10 of the 11 years we’ve lived here. I’m kind of an expert! This weekend is the 40th…

Tried It Tuesday: Something Old + New From Redd Bar #Giveaway

October 3, 2017 at 5:52 am

You may remember my rave review of Redd Bar after Expo East last year. I was all energy barred out and they knocked my socks of with plant based, oatmeal superfood bars are high in protein, gluten free and non-GMO. They contain 11 superfoods and 23 vitamins. They include high quality ingredients that are best for performance. Redd Bars contain 36mg of natural caffeine. They’re…

3rd Quarter 2017 Running Round Up #Giveaway

September 30, 2017 at 10:45 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 here is my running recap of the third quarter of 2017. As I mentioned in yesterday’s Runfessions, I didn’t run many races this quarter. In…

Runfessions are running truths or “where runners bare their souls and soles.” 1. I runfess… I’m running the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon on Sunday. Why…
