Hungry Running Recap: Running for Fun with Friends

On Saturday I ran my first 5K race. You know, most people usually start off their racing careers with a 5K. A bearable distance. Something manageable to wrap the mind around and prepare yourself for mentally. But no, not me. My first race ever was a half marathon. And now here I am two years, two more half marathons, and a handful of 10K races later running my first ever sprint-distance race.

It makes total sense. I know.

How to Make Fitness Fun and Stay Motivated to Exercise + A Fun Fit Bodyweight Workout

The following post is sponsored by Fitfluential on behalf of Puma.

Finding the fun in fitness isn’t an easy thing to do, but it’s absolutely possible and something that I want to inspire everyone to do. I encourage others to find exercises that they love, activities and sports that will continue to keep them coming back for more on a daily basis. That way, keeping up an exercise routine feels less like a chore that you have to force yourself to do and more like a fun hobby that you look forward to.

The Experience


Back in May I announced my ambassadorship with I introduced you to the Kind Runner ways and then gave you the full 411 on their deal when they officially launched on June 1st. (I’m not going to take the time to explain the full gist of Kind Runner here because the two links above provide some very in depth details. So if you’re new here, click and read away!)

Their epic online running shop has been in full swing for almost two months now, but since I’m not in the market for a new pair of sneakers just yet, I haven’t had the chance to put it to The Hungry Runner Test. (But trust me, I’m DYING to order a pair of sneakers from them and you’ll learn why after reading some of the links I’m about to share.)

Hungry Running Recap: Queens 10K + Link Love

Today I ran a 10K. Today I moved one race closer to my goal of running the 9 New York Road Runner events that will qualify me for guaranteed entry into the 2014 NYC Marathon. I have 7 down (plus my 1 volunteer) and 3 more to go. That seems insane considering it feels like just yesterday that I was bundling up in layers, getting ready to run the Gridiron Classic in the beginning of February and checking off race number 1. 2013 is moving FAST!

Workout Wednesday: Yoga Stretch for Runners

It’s Wednesday and it’s time to workout, Hungry Readers!

OK, well actually, this week we’re taking it easy and keeping it low key with a yoga-based stretching routine. These are the series of stretches that I do after I get back from a run. And even if you’re not a runner, this is a great routine to incorporate into your fitness regimen for improving and maintain flexibility, which is equally as important as strength and endurance.

Hungry Running Recap: Oakley Mini 10K

To be honest, I was a little nervous about this race. Sure, I’ve run plenty of 10k races before, but never just after recovering from an injury. Never just after having taken a three-week break from running. Even though I had successfully run a few short, pain-free runs in the week leading up to the race, I was still nervous that I would agitate my hip and that my injury might return.
