Snowy Week in Workouts (One Run + Lots of MWH Method)

freedom tower

Writing a recap of last week’s workouts feels so weird at the moment. Like to even think that we had over 16 inches of snow early on in the week actually blows my mind. That was only last week? My days are blending together a little too much. I wasn’t able to run all week […]

I’m Trying A New Online Workout Platform (workout recap)

MWH Method

The title of this post might be a little misleading. I am trying a new online workout platform but the platform itself is not exactly new, it’s just new to me. After moving away from my Pure Barre On Demand subscription in the last year, I knew at some point I would likely sign up […]

Thinking Ahead To Winter Running (plus weekly workout recap)


While I’m in the midst of enjoying my favorite season for running, I’m also thinking ahead to winter running. Even though I’m totally someone who lives in the present and really knows how to NOT to overthink things before they even might happen, I am giving thought to what winter running may look like this […]

Sometimes We Need To Run On Autopilot

car temperature

  It made my day yesterday to find out that I was included in this list of top 75 running blogs to follow in 2017! I was so honored to be recognized and included with so many other amazing running bloggers that my heart was warmed immediately, which by the way, was most definitely needed as my car read 5 DEGREES. […]

Workout Recap (12.5.16 – 12.11.16)

lululemon winter running accessories

  I ran six days this week and of the six days, four of my runs took place outside! Granted I have needed to bundle up and wear my layers but running four days outside in the fresh air is a good balance for the days indoors on the treadmill. My lululemon winter running accessories […]

Having Control And Carbon Monoxide Scare

  I wasn’t supposed to run yesterday but I woke up to warm weather (warm is a relative term here) and the sun shining. No runner is giving up a brief hiatus from this Polar Vortex, rest day or not. My last four runs have taken place outside. A rainy run I don’t mind all that […]

Thinking Out Loud- Pretzel Spoonz And An Ah-Ha Moment

  In honor of Amanda, our Thinking Out Loud host, check out the newest pretzels from Snyders: Pretzel Spoonz! Click on the image or here for the link to the Hungry Girl article all about these new perfect-for-dipping Pretzel Spoonz. I love a fun utensil but I never really cared for the pretzel. Are you a pretzel […]

Mighty Maple Is Back In My Pantry

  Thank goodness Spring is really only a few weeks away (in my mind that is) because my 11 mile run outdoors Saturday morning was just down right horrendous due to the weather conditions. This was one of those runs where you mentally battle to keep yourself going. For some reason, I had it in my mind that I […]

Sometimes I Am A Pitbull

  Well good morning. I was a very lucky girl today. The temperature when I woke up was a balmy 32 degrees signifying the return to my running path. I am pretty sure it had been a good two weeks since I went for an outdoor run. While two weeks doesn’t seem all that long, […]

Today’s Long Run And The Fitfriend App

39 degrees with sunshine this morning certainly made 13.1 miles comfortable and almost summer-like.   I had my usual long run partners with me: The worst part about my run today was dropping my last jelly bean. I never sweat the small stuff but I will admit losing the last bean bothered me more than […]
