2017

2017 is almost here! Another year gone and another to begin. This is the time when bloggers (and mostly everyone really..) sets their yearly goals… the resolutions, the I’m doing this this year stuff, the time when people talk about their plan for the year, what they want to achieve, what they want to change, what they want …

Winter Plan

Winter is kinda sorta here, at least it is in my hood. I have love – hate, but mostly meh feelings towards winter (icy, snow, slush, darkness and temps under 25 degrees) and winter training (looking for Winter Running Tips? click HERE) It it tough to stay motivated and can be hard to stick to …

Streaking

I am not a streaker… nope, not me, not even a little at least not at this time… I’ve tried to (run) streak in the past, I think I maybe made it 32 days? I can’t remember but now… I couldn’t last 4 days, actually it was 3 days… I couldn’t even make it 3 …

Tis The Season…

It’s that time of year again… the time when the year is almost over… when we scramble to end the year on a high note, maybe that is just me 😉 I am ending the year with not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 virtual runs! Why? To kick start 2017, to avoid the …

Slump

Slumps happen, right? To all off us? In any sport? At any time? Even to the pros? I hope so. Well I don’t hope so but you know I hope it’s not just me. I’ve been in a running slump lately, not motivated, not at all, and I’m not sure what to do… I want …

Trying Something New…

So… I’m trying something new… kinda new… I’m trying a 30 day challenge (a combo of a few actually). I’ve never done one before, I have worked on cross training and general strength but this 30 day challenge is a little different because its every day and its what I am hoping will jump start …

Life

Life has a funny way of getting in the way… one thing leads to another and BOOM its been way too long since your last run. Life throws you curve balls, or nasty sliders, and you strikeout, maybe you even get the golden sombrero (3 strikeouts in one game) maybe you get lucky and bounce …

Running Sucks

Running sucks. Running sucks for a boat load of reasons, every changing, horrible, awful, dreadful, sad reasons. Examples include, injuries, laundry, expensive must have gear, blisters, missing runs, humidity, sore muscles, bad runs, dead GPS watches,  way too freeking early race starts, chafing, RUNger, ice, broken cell phones, lack of PRs, race costs – shall …

Treadmill Mixes

I don’t normally run with music…I like to be in touch and feel connected to my surroundings however with the icy, snowy and crazy cold temps of a northeast winter (and the crazy humid and hot summers) my asthmatic (currently formally? can you be former asthmatic? ) self sometimes must  run on the treadmill. When I …

Why I Run

These are some of the many reasons why I run: I run for the fun I run for the cookies I run for the gear I run for the bling I run for the socks I run for the  health aspect I run for the mental health aspect I run for the fitness part of …
