I Love ProCompression

It is no secret that I LOVE ProCompression I post about them on Twitter and again, Instagram, on this Blog way back in 2012 before it was the cool thing to do, anyway I am a HUGE fan. I use the Marathon socks for longer runs (or I did when I could actually run longer distances, silly injuries) […]

Huma Gel

I am normally not a fan of gel nutrition for running/working out (probably because they tend to be full of icky ingredients and chemicals, Huma is not! I wrote briefly about Huma gel last year (HERE) and recently had a chance to try 2 of their new-ish flavors (thanks!) Blueberries and Mangos       […]

Chia Pudding

I am newly obsessed with Chia pudding. It tastes amazing and is super duper healthy and satisfying. What the hell is chia pudding you wonder…? It is a pudding like creation made from mixing chia seeds with almond (or i guess soy/hemp/cashew) milk. My latest recipe: 1 1/4 cup of almond milk 1/4 cup chia seeds […]

No more minimalist shoes for me, Doctor’s orders so instead ( of course i’m sticking with the always awesome Brooks Running)  going for the Ghost […]

Not running….

sucks! Injuries suck. Not running sucks more. It’s been a long long time since i’ve been able to run, actually run, enjoy the run and it just sucks. Running has gone from a daily hobby/habit/stress reliever/outlet to a depressing will I ever be able to enjoy the run again thought? boo hoo. I’m slowly coming […]

The Mile

Over the past few weeks I have slowly… more like    S     l      o    w    l    y       started running again, yippie! This may sound sad, weak, pathetic, awful, painful, etc to some of you, ok most of you, but I am VERY excited to be […]
