Product Review – Science in Sport Hydro Tablets – This summer I’m HYDRO powered.

In today's news: Summer is nasty. We all know it. It always is. Here in Virginia, I can choose between minimizing the temperature and sun exposure by running at 5:30am but with 99.99% humidity, or I can wait for the humidity to drop while hitting 95 degrees with a burning hot sun (oh, and it's still humid too). Pick your poison. I'm what you'd call an efficient sweater. My work juices start flowing sometimes before I even START my run. After a few miles, I'm just about soaked. I sometimes like to run long distances, so hydration is KEY. That goes for before, during and after running. When BibRave gave me the opportunity to test out a hydration related product, I jumped right on it!

This Month in Running: Six Mile Runs (and why they’re the best ones)

Happy Monday! I know it's a little harder to have a happy Monday than other days, but we can do it if we try. 🙂 If you've listened to me rant and rave, you probably know that I love six mile runs. I'll say that I can probably run six miles every day and some …

2020 Global Running Day – How bout a 24 hour relay?

Running has been an outlet for me for many years now. I can run alone to be with my thoughts. I can run with friends to share in deep discussions or endless joy/laughter. I can run easy to calm myself in stressful times. I can run hard to take out pent up aggression, or to see what I'm made of. Clearly, running is an important part of who I am.

Product Review – ROADiD Elite, for a little peace of mind

Hey hey hey! It's a Monday kind of Tuesday and there two ways of looking at it. If you're busy, you have less time to get everything done this week. If you're not busy, the weekend is closer than it seems! Every once in a while, I try out a product and review it as one of the perks of being a BibRave Pro. I'm happy to review products for a couple of reasons: 1. It's fun. 2. It's cool to find out what is available to boost our quality of life and enhance our active lifestyles and then keep my friends informed about it. I'm so helpful. 🙂

The Shoe Review that I had to Write – Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% – Woah.

First things first, I just want to be clear that I was in no way compensated for writing this review. These shoes are pricy, so I WISH that I was, but I'm writing this strictly out of my love for running, running shoes, and keeping my fellow runners informed. Also, I'm not an expert. I …

This Week in Running – When a PR isn’t JUST a PR…

What day is it? Oh, it's Sunday. That's right. I'm glad technology is tracking that sort of stuff, cause we're losing most of our reasons to care about such things. I did go to church on YouTube this morning, so we're adapting where we can to the current situation. One other way that we've had to adapt as runners is by coming to the realization that we aren't racing anymore for a while. I had big plans for Shamrock, but of course plans are changing. I decided to do the Dolphin Challenge virtually cause I DEFINITELY want to wear those awesome race shirts and I felt like I better earn them. 🙂
