You may remember from my holiday runner gift guides and many pics, I dig my sweat activated Ts from ViewSPORT. They make t-shirts, tech tees and tank tops with fun sayings on the front and sweat activated (see photos for explanation) messages on the back. These are perfect for the runner (or Crossfitter) with a great sense of humor! My first two said, “Run More…

May Happenings FI

It’s May Day! It feels like October here, but I am hoping that too will pass. The Husband and I are having a quiet weekend after some travels last week. I was thinking about some things I have coming up in May that I am excited about. You will definitely hear more but here are some on the thing that I have coming up in…

Tried It Tuesday: Body Glide #Giveaway

April 26, 2016 at 5:14 am

If you’ve been around here, you know I have been running for well over twenty years. Despite that, I sometimes still make mistakes and need to go back to the basics. If you saw my LA Marathon recap and SLS3 review, you know I got pretty chafed up. Chafing is the such a bummer and it’s also preventable. I have tried and liked many anti-chafe…

Running on Mind FI

It is Boston Marathon weekend, so like many runners, I have running on the brain. There have been a few interesting running stories on my mind and some running related questions on my Blogiversary Giveaway. [Did you enter?] So here is what’s running through my mind on running at the moment: I haven’t run Boston since 2007 (my 5th running). Don’t get me wrong, I love…

Erica Finds is 4! Blogiversary #Giveaway

April 12, 2016 at 6:16 am

Time flies when you’re having fun! This blog just turned 4! I think back to how little I knew about blogs and blogging when I started. Heck, I’m sure that I still have a lot to learn. Last year, I wrote about some lessons learned and I think they all still hold up very well. The most critical ones are to write about what you…

Currently… It’s Supposed to Be Spring

That's not pollen. It's snow!

Currently… A post on “things of the moment” for me (#12). [Inspired by Marcia and other bloggers.] State of things: I hate to talk about the weather because it’s boring, BUT we had ice and freezing temps on our run yesterday on April 9. WTF!? I was very grateful not to have signed up for the Chitown Half Marathon or worse yet the Lakefront 50K.…
