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

July 22, 2017 at 5:46 pm

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…

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…

Welcome to the 6th Ultimate Coffee Date link up of 2017. This year continues to fly by. It’s mid-year already. Crazy – right?

Friday Five: Ways to Beat the Heat This Summer #Giveaway

June 2, 2017 at 7:02 am

It’s Friday, so I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for the new Friday Five 2.0. The theme this week is “Summer Workouts” and they ask the question “how do you modify your workouts in the summer?” The toughest thing for me is dealing with heat and humidity. We’ve been pretty lucky here in Chicago so far this year with only…
