Summer Running Gear: The Most Important Accessory You’re Probably Not Using + a Giveaway!

You know when you know you’re supposed to do something, but you don’t?

I know you know, because we’re all guilty of it. Your mom tells you to clean your room, you watch TV instead. Your dentist tells you you need to floss more, you don’t. You think, “I should wash those dishes,” but you spend 3 hours on Instagram instead. That kind of thing.

Eventually not doing the things we’re supposed to comes back to bite us in the butt, though—which hopefully teaches us a lesson. Read More

Re-IGNITING My Love for Running: PUMA Ignite Review

Believe it or not, my longest run since racing the 2014 NYC Marathon in November only took place this past weekend.

On Saturday I ran 5 miles (to and over the Brooklyn Bridge then back) and even though it was super windy ( almost just as windy as it had been on the day of the marathon), I was instantly reminded of everything I love about both distance running and running in NYC.

Part of this was thanks to my new PUMA Ignite sneakers. I’ve been running in them over the past few weeks, but I’ll get to those in a minute, though, because first I have a few other updates to fill you in on. Read More

But if you sign up to run a marathon, you will eventually have to deal with choosing what to wear on race day, so let’s talk some general tips. (Oh and don’t worry, all of the stress is totally worth it in the end.)

Hungry Running Race Recap: 2014 NYC Marathon

2014-nyc-marathon

So, I finished my first marathon.

On Saturday when I wrote “I’m running a marathon tomorrow,” I said that sentence sounded crazy to me. Well, the one above now sounds even crazier.

I did it, and I’m still kind of in shock that I actually finished the race. A whole marathon. 26.2 miles.

Not that I ever doubted myself, but this was definitely one of the toughest things I’ve ever done and there were points during the race where my mind was telling me to give up. I definitely hit a wall around mile 17 and it took every ounce of my determination to keep going.

Tomorrow is Race Day + My Marathon Running Playlist

I’m running a marathon tomorrow.

Even though I’ve done the training and I’ve been planning this race for almost two years now, that sentence still sounds crazy to me.

If five years ago you told me I’d voluntarily sign up for a marathon, I probably would have laughed in your face. It’s still hard to believe that running went from a sport that I completely hated to an activity that is now such an integral and meaningful part of my life.
