This Month in Running – I’m all about (maintaining) that base…

Hello and good evening to ya. It seems like it's been a long time since I posted something just because I felt like it, so here we are! For months now, we runners have been waiting for our chance to get back to training for our main events. I've run a few virtual races and …

The America Runs Virtual 5k – I’m a sucker for the red, white and blue.

Here we are...August. It's crazy to even read that. 2020 has obviously been a year like no other and most of us are ready to put up the holiday decor and get this one over with. Normally, I'd have run several races by now and I'd be itching to rev things up for fall. I've been in a rut when it comes to my running (which isn't ALL bad). I've wanted to get to work with track and tempo days, but the nice and easy miles are just so nice and easy. With nothing on the calendar, it had been too easy to just stay easy. I was given the opportunity to sign up for the America Runs 5k and to be honest, the first reason I signed up was for the SWAG. I truly am a sucker for the red, white and blue.

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!

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 …
