Runners: our bodies endure an astonishing amount of fatigue and afflictions.

Broken or lost toenails, chaffed skin, sore muscles and, unfortunately, sometimes even more serious injuries. Running is great (I know you don’t need to be convinced of that), but even though it provides so many benefits (a healthier heart, a happier mind, stronger muscles, etc.) it’s still a form of stress for our body too, which means if you run a lot taking extra care of your body (being KIND to it, if you will) is an essential ingredient for staying healthy and strong Read More

Team For Kids Charity Auction

As you probably already know by know, I’m signed up to run the New York City Half Marathon with Team For Kids on March 20th. (As if I haven’t been talking about this enough already, right?!)

Well, as you probably also know, in order to do so, I need to reach my fundraising goal of $1,310 (that’s about $100 for each of the 13 miles I’ll be running in March, plus $10 for that last tenth of a mile!), which is why I hosted my Holiday Giveaway Bonanza back in December (which you guys helped me raise about $250 through, so THANK YOU!!!) and why I’m now hosting this fun charity auction (inspired by fellow Team For Kids member Kaella On The Run) where you’ll have the chance to win even more prizes Read More

That Time I Thought I Had A Stress Fracture

Funny story: half marathon training might be driving me crazy. And by might, I mean it definitely is.

I’m not even in the taper portion of my training cycle and I’m already losing my mind. For the greater part of two whole days I was 100 percent convinced that I had a stress fracture Read More

A new half marathon goal, a new half marathon training plan!

It’s really crazy to think that the upcoming NYC Half Marathon (which I’m running with Team for Kids!) will be my SIXTH half marathon. It still feels like only a short time ago when I signed up for my first, which was on a total whim and supposed to be a one-time deal. HA!

Obviously that plan didn’t pan out how I had planned! Of course, that’s definitely a good thing. I can’t imagine my life without running now and I’m so excited to embark on my first goal race in a really long time Read More

January 2016 Running Playlist

I’m mad at myself. I used to do these running playlist updates consistently every month, but I’ve been so bad at keeping up with them lately, which is a shame because I don’t update my running playlists as often and listen to the same batch of songs over and over again for far too long Read More
