WIAW – Lots of Sea Salt & Salad

cheesecake factory salad

Jumping right in to what I ate yesterday! Breakfast: Pre-Run: Coffee, water, small bowl of oatmeal with mashed banana. There’s nothing more satisfying to me than my post-run oatmeal especially when served in an almost empty peanut butter jar. Remember a few months ago when I sort of fell off the peanut butter wagon? Well, […]

Surviving Summer As A Runner

How I go about surviving the summer as a runner. It's not just about what you do during your run!

  It takes me some time to adjust to running in the warmer temperatures but overall, I just love running this time of year! There are certain adjustments I need to make to my routine though during the warmer months and factors I need to consider both when running and not running in order to survive summer as a runner. 1.

10 Healthy Living Tips: Do I follow them?

  I really liked  Amanda’s (from Run to the Finish) post last week where she addressed 10 healthy living tips that she doesn’t follow. I thought it would be fun to look at the 10 Healthy Living Tips she discussed and, almost like a survey, see if I follow them. 1. Drink Warm Lemon Water I don’t drink lemon water […]

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 […]

My New Favorite Fruit Infusion Water

I cannot begin to tell you how much I thoroughly enjoy reading all of your comments on yesterday’s post discussing all things cake. Some people have zero interest in the delicacies that interest others. I am not one of those people. I love reading which cakes, frostings and varieties you prefer and learning more about your favorite […]

More/Fitness Women’s Half Race Day

  Is it weird that I have never needed an alarm clock in my entire life? Like, if you tell me that I must be up at 4:00 am to give myself some time before getting out the door for a race, I will be up on schedule? I think it’s weird. Or maybe just one […]

NNM And Little Changes Lead To Big Results

  Pandora was really kind to me yesterday morning. I don’t know how Tiffany landed on a Pitbull station but I will certainly take it. Maybe Debbie Gibson will be next? 30 minutes on the elliptical plus a few minutes dilly dallying with weights for the biceps and I was done. Short workouts like this often leave […]

Three Tip Tuesday- Hydration

I just couldn’t help myself yesterday morning. I couldn’t resist the urge to go for an early run after I finished breakfast. I know I said that I wanted to get to Lifetime but I just could not ignore the itch to run. There are too many days, weeks and heck even full months  in the […]

Sunday Check-In

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I just wanted to pop in and say hello. The weather here in New York has been quite fickle with a mix of clouds, brief sunshine and random downpours since Friday. I woke up Saturday morning to a dreary, icky sky. Thankfully the overnight downpours stopped when it […]

Dunkin’s Doorstep

I didn’t drive thru. I walked. Well, I didn’t walk thru the drive thru (although I certainly would if necessary). I walked into the store. For an iced coffee. My intention yesterday was to take a full rest day. But it was gorgeous out when I put the boy on the bus that I decided […]
