Week 1: November Abs Challenge

November 3, 2014

Why an abs challenge during a month that leads into the busiest of holiday seasons? Well, why not? I honestly can’t think of a better time of the year to host an abs challenge right when we’re starting to become slightly more sedentary (um, hello! no more sun after 5:30pm) and eat a bit more […]

Mizuno Wave Rider 18: There is no finish line

October 30, 2014

September 9, 2014

Hi, my name is Melissa and I’m a recovering marathon drop out. It’s been 17 days since I made the decision not to run the Marine Corps Marathon. [post beach run – where I ran without training on my mind] This sounds like a joke and I wish it were, however deciding to “quit” training […]

Marathon Training = Lots of Shoes

July 29, 2014

Even if I weren’t in training for the Marine Corps Marathon, I would probably still have an excessive amount of workout shoes – especially running shoes.  It’s an Achilles heel. Just a week ago, I broke out a new pair of Mizunos to try out for LOOONNNG distances – the Wave Enigma.  This pair has […]
