What Can You Learn During Training?

January 28, 2016

Training for any race, whether a 5K or a marathon, leaves a definite mark on a person.  You learn a few things about yourself.  Sometimes you learn that you’re more equipped to hit the snooze button than you originally thought.  Sometimes you learn that you have a little more to give than you ever knew.  […]

Winter is Here + A Workout

January 26, 2016

Holy cow!  We’ve almost dug ourselves out of the over 2 feet of snow that got dumped on us this past weekend.  I have to admit it was kind of fun being stuck inside and braving the storm with Devin :)  So many firsts for us this year! We tried to shovel often to keep […]

A Warm Winter Weekend

December 13, 2015

It’s been in the 60s and 70s all weekend and I couldn’t feel more blessed to have the windows open while still enjoying the Christmas lights.  After last year’s artic winter, it’s nice to think this year might be just a bit more mild. (Fingers crossed) Devin and I started our weekend off with a […]

Run Coaching

October 11, 2015

Last spring I took the RRCA Run Coach certification course.  It was a weekend long intensive.  Between the running fundamentals I learned that weekend and the tools I have from being a registered dietitian and group fitness instructor, I knew that I would love working with individuals towards reaching their running goals. Therefore, I’m excited […]

My Favorite Books of 2015

October 8, 2015

One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2015 was to read 1 book per month.  Guess what number I’m on?  5 Ok, so I’m a little behind.  But, I’m not upset.  I’m reading a lot more this year than I was last and I think that’s the whole point of resolutions – improvement.  Maybe next […]

Running in the Dark

October 6, 2015

Here in the DC area, we’ve been dealing with a lot of weather change.  This past weekend brought Hurricane Joaquin.  Then the temperatures dropped to the 40s (it was just in the 80s I swear!), and now it’s dawning on me that it’s pitch black out until almost 7am When you prefer to run outside, […]

Grilled Caesar Salad

September 22, 2015

Fall is here. Half of you probably have your hands in the air saying “Amen”, while the other half are dodging everyone else and their pumpkin spice lattes. I love Fall, but I also love Spring, and Summer too.  So Fall presents this weird “I love you, but I also know that you bring something […]

Stair Workout

September 9, 2015

So you know I love to run…right? But when I’m at the gym, the treadmill looks like a torture device.  I’d much rather see scenery passing me by than stare at a TV screen.  So when I’m there, I will either choose the elliptical or stairclimber (not a fan of the elliptical either – try […]

End of Summer Harvest Pasta

September 7, 2015

I can’t believe it’s officially the end of the summer!  While I probably enjoy fall and spring like weather a little more, ending the summer always feels like we’re welcoming winter – which I like for about 2.5 days (aka the holidays…). The good part is that we still have more time for great weather […]
