Hey hey, it's Saturday! I finished up a great run this morning (more about that later), but while I was out running alone the whole TOWN was living it up at the Virginia 10 miler. I had some FOMO issues, but I chose to miss the race for several reasons. Such is life. I had run the Lynchburg Half Marathon a few weeks ago and I'm saving myself for the big event, the Runner's World Half & Festival Grand Slam! I seriously can't believe I'll be running that one in 3 weeks!
This Week in Running – What’s Cooler than Being Cool?
It's Saturday night and though some of you might be out having fun, I'm sitting in a comfy chair with a blanket (cause it's ALWAYS cold in my basement). This seems like as good a time as any to go over my training week. Monday I was able to get back to running with my …

Product Review – Nuun Rest, Runners…Rest Easy
Hello and happy Tempo Thursday to you, my friends. I'm in the middle of another summer-ish week of running that has had its good days and its bad ones, but they'll be more about that later.

Running Tip of the Week – Run with your Arms!
Hey there. You. Yeah you. It's a Monday kind of Tuesday, but I'm not letting it get me down. I'm heading out for a Fantasy Football Draft and some wings and beer, so life isn't but so bad today. 🙂 I went out for a 6 miler this morning and to be honest, I didn't …

This Week in Running – The Regret of Quitting on Yourself
It's Labor Day weekend! That means I get to avoid the feeling of the weekend slipping away on Sunday afternoon, since it's kinda sorta Saturday afternoon. 🙂 My vacation seriously messed with my running/training, so I ended up running a 10 mile long run on a Monday. Who does something like that (beside you, Alissa)??? I'll …
