I probably run with something on my head for 9 out of 10 runs these days. It's part of my emsemble. So, when asked if I wanted to test out and review a new material, I jumped on it! Enter BUFF® CoolNet UV+®
This week in Running – Hey yayyayyayyy, Run Miles Everyday
Happy Friday! The title of this post should ring a bell with some of you 2000s music fans (2001 specifically, there's your hint). Somebody needs to comment with the right answer or I'm going to lose faith in my readers! Either way, I hope you're all having a good morning so far and a great weekend ahead.
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!
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 …

Product Review – I’m Attached to Detach (Coconut Water Evolved)
Happy Friday to you! This is fantasy football draft Friday, which is like a combo of the 4th of July and Thanksgiving. My co-workers and I are pretty excited. I'm going to be one co-worker short though, as my great friend and now running buddy Lil' Code is moving on to bigger things. I've been mean to him all week. It's how I cope. Facts about me...Things that I hate: Black Olives (any olives really) Pickles Coconut
Product Review – COROS PACE Multi-Sport GPS Watch, Hangin’ Tough! (New Kids on the Block)
As a BibRave Pro, I get to try out all KINDS of things. I've tried food, I've tried shoes, and now I've tried fancy GPS watches! If you're a runner and you like socially interacting, running races (and reviewing them) and STUFF you should feel free to apply here and feel free to tell them Randy sent ya.

Post Achilles Surgery Week 14 – He’s Not a Machine! He’s a Man!
Good morning! I'm a little late on this one, but better late than never. This week's post title comes from a movie that most of you have seen. My wife hasn't seen it...yet. We watched the first three of the series, so this one is on deck (that's a pretty good hint, I think). So …

Post Achilles Surgery Week 13 – Things are Going to Start Happening to me Now
Hey hey! This week's post title isn't from a song (crazy, right?) but it's from a movie. If you guess it, you are awesome and deserve a prize (probably won't get one though). I can't believe it's been 13 weeks since this adventure began. I've posted at least one update a week and as I …
