Friday Five: Some of My Favorite Running Races

August 4, 2017 at 6:32 am

It’s Friday, so I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for Friday Five 2.0. This week’s topic is “My Favorite Races.” I’ve run well over 400 races, so this is a doozie of a topic for me. I can’t really pick only five faves. However, if you’ve been around here, you know I have some faves that I repeat year after…

Friday Five: My First Runfessions

July 28, 2017 at 7:10 am

It’s Friday, so I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for Friday Five 2.0. July is a “free” month, so I’m doubling down and linking up with Marcia for the July “Runfessions,” too! Runfessions are running truths or “where runners bare their souls and soles.” I runfess that… I just realized that the NY Marathon is less than 16 weeks away…

Currently… Summer Time Edition

Currently… A post on “things of the moment” for me (#17). [Inspired by Marcia and other bloggers.] State of things: Another year is flying by! I typically write these posts every other month, but this is the first since March. We’ve been on the go a bunch and loved our trip to Berlin. I loved Amanda’s (runner and product tester extraordinaire) wedding in Rhode Island…

2nd Quarter ’17 Running Round Up

June 28, 2017 at 12:03 pm

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 – not even close! That said, here is my running recap of the second quarter of 2017. Like 2Q16, it was a fun quarter but not a fast…

Rock with Me! Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago #Giveaway

June 25, 2017 at 7:27 am

Chicago is a great running town – especially in summer. We have tons of groups training for the Chicago Marathon and a bunch of awesome races. The Rock ‘n’ Roll series comes to Chicago every July for a 1/2 marathon, 5K and 10K. It’s an awesome course and always has great swag and kick-butt post race party. The only challenge is that on July 15…

The Sky’s the Limit – Mizuno Wave Sky Shoe Review

June 8, 2017 at 7:44 pm

I love when an email comes through asking if I want to try new shoes from Mizuno. Do I? Of course, I do! I tried the Wave Rider 20 last fall (review). I’m a big Wave Rider fan and the 20s are a very good fit for me. I’ve been rotating them in ever since. As a Fitfluential Ambassador, I was offered the opportunity to…
