Running Terms Made Simple

adidas adistar boost

  The main reason I don’t plan my posts too far in advance is because I always end up having a random thought or experience which we need to discuss immediately. Tuesdays are typically topic/advice type posts over here and while I thought that I wanted to talk in one direction today, we are going in another. […]

How To Save Money Grocery Shopping Without Coupons

I don’t watch very much television. I mean, I have a few shows that I consider must-see-tv and I have no issue admitting to you that Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Long Island Medium and Honey Boo Boo are on this list. There is just something about that Boo Boo of a family that cracks me up. I know Mama […]

How To Become A Morning Runner

  I have a really great group of friends. I really like them. If you must know the truth, I think my friends should be honored I feel this way about them because if you know me, you know I have little tolerance for people. Forever my motto. It is actually nice to know that my friends feel […]

Boston Strong And Passover Recipes

I took a look back this morning at my post from April 16, 2013, written a day after the Boston Marathon bombings. I was in shock as the rest of the world was, unable to fathom such a tragedy, especially a tragedy so closely related to what I do every day. As you pause to remember those that lost their […]

Taper Week Workouts And Race Day Essentials

  I can’t help but think back to last year at this time as I prepare once again for this Sunday’s More/Fitness Women’s Half Marathon. You may remember that I had seriously and unexplainably injured my left shoulder exactly one week before last year’s race. I couldn’t lift my arm, didn’t sleep for nine days straight and experienced pain far worse […]

Vacation From Cooking?

  The little boy (who really isn’t all that little anymore as I watch him inch closer in height to myself) woke up yesterday morning claiming a sore throat in the same sentence as informing me that the first pitch for Mets opening day would be at 1:00 pm in the afternoon. Did he really think […]

Physical Fitness Tests and Building Up To Running

  I have come to realize how important it is to allow life to just happen and not worry so much about figuring out all of the details in advance. I very rarely plan out blog posts. I may have ideas in mind for the upcoming week or jot down quick notes on topics I want […]

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 – Cait The Arty Runner Chick!

  I realized yesterday morning that I kind of sort of ran seven days in a row. I know better than to do that (especially when I wanted to go easy last week) but since I don’t follow a strict running agenda and tend to go with how I feel, I guess I felt pretty darn good every […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Being A Friend

  One of these days I am really going to talk about Apple Cider Vinegar and the health benefits associated with adding it to your morning glass of water. Today is not the day. It was going to be the day until I decided we needed to talk about something else entirely, something that is […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Two Links + A Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

  I ran six miles yesterday on the treadmill. Simply stating this fact to you without including details really doesn’t tell you much other than the number of miles. See. Just telling you I ran 6 miles now looks totally different, doesn’t it? There is nothing wrong with breaking up your runs. I don’t always, […]
