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

My 2016 Half Marathon Training Plan

half marathon training plan

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

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

The Best Podcasts for Running

About four years ago, I don’t even think I knew what a podcast was.

OK, maybe that’s a little bit of an exaggeration. I’d probably heard of podcasts and generally had an understanding of what they were, but the word sounded so boring and foreign to me that I had zero desire to find out anything more.

Little did I know, podcasts are basically the exact opposite of boring (well at least the good ones are). They’re entertaining, like a Netflix binge, but for your ears Read More

Healthy Dessert Options for the Holidays

This post is sponsored by goodnessknows. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you’ve been following Hungry Runner for a while now, then you know I’m an advocate of going all-in for the holidays.

What I mean by that, is that I don’t think you should worry about how “unhealthy” a certain dessert is or whether or not a decadent dish has too much butter or cheese or whatever demonized ingredient the mainstream media repeatedly tells us will “pack on the pounds.”

Especially at a time of year that’s about giving thanks and spreading love, no one should be worrying about whether an extra cookie will make them “fat” or if grandma’s oh-so-buttery mashed potatoes have “too many calories.”

Basically, I’m an advocate for enjoying the foods that you love. During the holidays and at all times of the year. It’s as simple as that. Read More
