I Think I Want New Running Shoes (weekly workout recap)

brooks ghost 14

I don’t even want to have the running shoe conversation. Nope, don’t want to go there. Technically, I do not need new running shoes. My Brooks Ghosts 14’s are not burned out just yet. But. I don’t love them. There, I said it. The Ghost 14’s lack the level of cushion that I prefer and […]

Friday Favorites: Pizza + Shoes + TLC Shows

Oh, hi. I meant to check in on Wednesday but I didn’t get a chance. At the last-minute Tuesday night, we went to the Islanders game which left me tired come Wednesday morning to finish a post. Here I am though, and it’s Friday! Not only is it Friday, but it’s also Friday before Hanukkah […]

Weekly Workout Recap (7.22.19 – 7.28.19)

I don’t have a whole lot to say about my workouts this week. I ran a bit, did some Pure Barre, and walked a whole lot. Sometimes during my workouts, I still think about why I used to run as much as I did. Like, did I want to run as much as I did […]

Pure Barre On Demand Issues + Weekly Workouts

Brooks Launch Old Glory

A few quick notes before getting to my workouts from the week: Pure Barre On Demand had issues this week. As you know, I have been using the Pure Barre On Demand platform for over two years (and taking classes/using Pure Barre DVD’s for basically five solid years now). I’ve never had an issue with […]

Friday Faves + Brooks Launch + Fashion Finds

Brooks Launch Old Glory

I’m SO HAPPY it’s Friday! I knew this week would be somewhat of a struggle in that I had a lot of work to do which I had to balance with my son being home (school ended last Friday for him) combined with the excitement of packing him up to leave this weekend for his […]

Winter Weather Workout Accessories 2014

winter weather workout accessories essentials 2014

A few weeks ago I shared with you my Cold Weather Workout Essentials for 2014 which focused on my picks for women’s winter running apparel. It’s about time already that I follow that up with some Workout Accessories for this fast approaching (if not already arrived) cold weather workout season. But here’s the situation…. I have the basic accessories essentials part […]

Yesterday’s Run & A Stur Giveaway!


  If you are trying to build on your endurance and extend your runs, I am going to guess that one of your biggest struggles sometimes is getting through the first few miles. Making it through those first three miles, loosening up, working out the kinks and finding your groove is key to going longer. I often feel […]

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 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. […]

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. […]


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. […]

Comfort is Key

Rise and Shine! I hope it is beautiful outside where you live and that you are able to take advantage of the spring weather by doing something outdoors. I was up and out early for my run and may I just say, I am LOVING my new Brooks Glycerin sneakers. Foot pain? GONE! I was […]
