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 […]

Summer Running 2014

Summer running is nothing new to me, i’ve been dealing with the yucky NYC area heat and humidity for my entire live and running in it for years. I’ve come to expect the ick, the gross and the super uncomfortable,  I’ve even written about tips for dealing with it  here and here but this summer I have a different […]

New shoes, New start

Injury, injury, injury… that is ALL I seem to talk about, well not anymore. I’m over it and i’m back in action… well as soon as these brand spanking new puppies arrive. 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 […]

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 […]

Run This Year

I am slowly coming out of injury fog. My legs (and foot) isn’t what is use to be – which was a slow and steady runner who loved the 3-5 mile runs yet I am back! I am re building, re training, regaining stamina (hopefully) all while attempting to RUN THIS YEAR   If you […]

New Year, New Goal

Goals can be funny things. What is a goal one day (or week/month/year) like PRing at a 10k can seem so crazy the next. I’ve been injured since august, 4 months of non running, 4 months of watching others acheive their goals, 4 months of sitting on the sidelines. I’m back now. Slowly but back. […]

Injuries Suck

I am injured. I am hurt. I am down for the count. I am not allowed to run. I am sad. All runners will most likely have to deal with some kind of a injury and all runners know that injuries suck… I had to cancel 3 races, the remainder of my 2013 races. I […]
