What are the best running apps? I get this question a lot, and it’s not an easy one to answer because, as you probably know, there are many, many running apps to choose from.
The good news is, even though I can’t use all of them all of the time and I typically stick to one just for the sake of consistency (and my sanity), I have personally tried many, many of these different running apps and can at least help give you a better idea of which of the best running apps will actually be the best one for you … Read More
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.

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

Me in my Skirt Sports Jette Skirt during the 2014 NYC Marathon.
No matter what the weather forecast or what time of year, trying to figure out what to wear for a marathon can be a huge source of stress. Not only do you have to spend 16 weeks training to run a 26.2-mile race, but you have to decide what to wear on race day, too? That’s just bonkers! No one needs that much stress in their lives.
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.)
