Back-to-Back Long Runs, Switching Up The Sneakers And Other Smart Moves

  I did something smart. And cost-effective. My Asics Gel Nimbus 15’s (on the left) are quickly wearing thin. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised – increasing one’s mileage will increase the frequency of purchasing new running shoes. Don’t get me wrong – I love a new pair of shoes but spending big bucks right now to get THE […]

Weekend Recap – Sweet, Savory and Soles4Souls

I would like you to meet my newest pair of Asics Gel Nimbus 15’s. It is said that you should replace your running sneakers somewhere between 300-500 miles. Normally I decide around the 300 -350 mile mark that my shoes are shot. This time around however, my Gel Nimbus 15’s held out closer to 400 miles. I knew the end was […]

Weekend Recap and Mixing Up The Menu

Well hello!  I almost didn’t wake up on time for me this morning – between the sun rising later and later and my new cable box which lacks a clock on the display, I woke up in the dark and without seeing the time, assumed it was 3:00 am and went back to sleep. It was not 3:00 am. […]

Fascinating Things Friday

Good morning!  Welcome to Friday. I am quite excited that it is the weekend even if this heat wave is still going strong. I have had just about enough of the oppressive heat, I swear it is hotter here than in Florida. As hot as it is though,  I am truly enjoying waking up to sunshine and heading […]

Don’t Jinx It!

I must say this week is flying by. At least for me. I ran again yesterday morning, stopping myself at 4.60 miles for two reasons: 1- I am afraid to overdo it this week  2- I really needed to get my day going. I ran those miles in negative splits, feeling as though I could have […]

It’s The Thought That Counts

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend and a Happy Father’s Day. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to gifts, I am all about the thought put into picking a present over the dollar amount spent. I like to buy special gifts for the people in my life and for the most part, […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Compromise

You are correct. Those are not my Brooks Glycerins. I haven’t given up on them completely, I just decided to try out the Asics Gel Nimbus 15’s. First on a 4 mile walk this past Sunday (with a destination of Dunkin Donuts). My friend who accompanied me on the walk was amused by my testing out of the sneakers. […]

Cinderella

My run yesterday was nowhere near as glorious as the last few have been. The conditions were perfect, even after the flooding rains from Tropical Storm Andrea. I blame my sneakers. I just don’t know about these Brooks Glycerins. Some days they are great. And then some days, they hurt the tops of my feet. […]

Run, Read and Eat Happy

Oh rainbow shoes how I loved you. Lesson learned. Do not judge a book by it’s cover. Although on a side note, I always seem to gravitate towards the novels with the pretty covers that have a picture of a cupcake, brownie or ice cream cone and they usually come through for me as great […]

Mid-Week Report

Where did my spring go? The last few days have been cold and windy. I had been planning to retire my  Uggs to the closet this week as well as run a few hilly miles outdoors this morning. This is why I try not to plan ahead: 30 degrees plus wind chill was not part […]

Matzoh Monday

I can’t recall the last time it snowed on Passover. It is becoming quite clear that Mother Nature missed the memo that my spring began March 1st. I won’t even complain that I can’t run outdoors today. My feet need to rest after running the last two days. My Navicular bone needs the rest actually. […]
