2 Months To Go

In just about two months I will (hopefully – on target as of today) be cleared to run again! Until then my plan is to take it easy, try not to obsess over spring races, walk as much as I can, try not to obsess over fall/winter gear, keep doing yoga 2-4x a week, try […]


As I’ve made it VERY clear I can’t run, I’m not allowed, forbidden, it’s a big ole NO-NO and this SUCKS! For a while I tried to avoid other runners, race recaps, new gear, colorful sneakers, everything really. I thought it would help. I thought it would be easier. I thought it would make not […]

Lebert SRT Barbell Review

As I’ve made it super clear… I have been sidelined from running… for a while now, it been tough however I have found other ways to work out and discovered that I may like more than just running <gasp>. I’m also hopeful that when I can and do start running again my efforts with strength […]

Can I Complain?

I just want to complain… complain about not being able to run, not being able to justify trying new products and buying new gear, complain that I can’t using running to combat stress, complain, complain, complain.

There are A LOT of plant based foods out there… the below ones are some (not all) […]

No Running

Tomorrow is National Running Day… this makes me sad. It has been 254 days since my last run. Well… that is not true, I can’t tell you when my last run was, It was sometime late last summer/early last fall. I didn’t know, didn’t think and couldn’t have imagined that it would be my last […]

Winter Running?

Do you run outside in the winter? In the dark? In the snow? I’m going to again this year, last year was miserable and I’m looking for tips to make it more enjoyable, safe and something I can just get through. This is what I know so far: – Dress in layers – Dress 10-15 […]
