June 18, 2014

Nothing feels better than coming home, cracking open a box of new running shoes, and then heading out the door. I mean seriously…. Ok, yes.  My idea of great shoes are from brands such as Mizuno, Nike, and Under Armour.  Sneakers over stilettos So that is why I’m sharing my top 5 favorite summer run […]

Why I Got a Running Coach

June 16, 2014

This summer is all about building my base for the Marine Corps Marathon.  This will be my 2nd marathon.  Marathon #1 wasn’t quite the experience I was hoping for.  The 2011 Pittsburgh Marathon was kind of a disaster.  Ok, yes, I crossed the finish line, but that was about the only victory happening that day.  […]

The Run that Shouldn’t have Been…

May 22, 2014

Over two weeks ago, I ran the Pittsburgh Half Marathon.  It was the fourth time I’ve run the half and the fifth time I’ve been involved in their series of races (2011 26.2).  Each year, I loved it.  Despite three years of rain, a terrible 26.2 experience, and many black toenails.  It’s the city of […]

My Favorite Breakfast

May 6, 2014

I used to be a peanut butter toast kind of girl.  Only because it was quick and also portable.  During my internship I needed something I could grab and take with me for a one hour commute. But now that I’m in an office and also have a shorter commute, I have the time to […]

Giving Up on Superfoods

April 24, 2014

Kale. Avocadoes. Goji Berries. Chia Seeds Quinoa. These foods are hot trends because at one time someone dubbed them a superfood.  What exactly is a superfood?  Does it impart super human powers?  Give us spidey senses?  Help us fly? Unfortunately there is no medical definition but Google states that a superfood is “a nutrient-rich food […]

We Carry On

April 18, 2014

I can’t help but think “How appropriate that the weekend before the Boston marathon is also Easter weekend “– an entire weekend to reflect on renewal and new life.  Even if you’re not religious, you can see how the season of spring shows us this by allowing our surroundings to slowly renew themselves into bright […]
