Shiny New (to me) Things – Runner’s World Half and Festival

Happy Friday, friends! It's been a dooooozy of a week, but the good times will soon begin. If you've been reading, you know that I'm in chill mode right now (does anybody say chill mode?) when it comes to running. I'm kinda sorta getting ready for my upcoming races in April, but running fast isn't all that appealing to me right now. I've been content with my running, but sometimes there's a fine line between being content and being bored. Something new would probably help...enter the Runner's World Half and Festival!

This Week in Running – Everything Zen

Happy Sunday! It was frosty cold this morning after a few days of muggy magic, so now I don't trust groundhogs anymore. It's so strange how just one warm weather run can make it so hard to going back to the cold. This week in running was a modest total of 21.4 miles. I'm taking …

Product Review – Zwift Run Foot Pod and App – Surviving the Treadmill

Good morning! For me, it's one of those Mondays that really just kind of connects to my last Friday. I feel like I never really had a weekend. It's weird and annoying when that happens, but we shall power through. As a BibRave Pro, I've tested ALL kinds of things! I've tested shoes, earphones, headwear, food, drinks and even pillows! Today's review involves a word that makes most runners cringe....the TREADMILL. The treadmill can be great for many things. I've said plenty about why I do like it once in a while (like this Tweet). That being said, it can get BORING. We're mostly looking for ways to kill time while we're on it. Zwift might just have one.

Product Review – Nathan Luna Fire 250 RX Chest/Waist Light – Light it Up Up Up

It's Wednesday, but it's Friday! I've been singing Christmas songs all day long. It's a happy time around the house and around the office. I'm a couple of pounds up, thanks to less running and more cookies (thank you, Brooke). This month, I had the opportunity to try out the Fire 250 RX Chest/Waist light from Nathan. Lights are kind of a big deal this time of year, since the sun takes a break at around 5pm and doesn't come up until I don't know when. I've used headlights and lights that you carry, but never a light that straps to your chest or waist.

Rehoboth Beach Marathon Recap and Happy Anniversary, My Achilles

Happy Friday! Today is my one year anniversary! No, not THAT anniversary (I've been married for 14 years now). It's the anniversary of that time I ruptured my Achilles tendon in a basketball game. I'm telling you, the injury was life changing. So one year later, here we are. I'm back to running. I'm back …
