Going on a #SummerSweatStreak 

Going on a #SummerSweatStreak 

The Runner’s World Summer RunStreak is one of my favorite summer running “events”. It’s a great way to stave off the summer patio drinking weight gain, and is an easy way to get mileage in for fall races.  This year, I’m not able to run, or even walk or bike, potentially through July 4th, but … Continue reading

How often do you make goals? 

How often do you make goals? 

Last week, I started putting my goals on FB each morning as a way to stay accountable.  As the days passed, I found myself being more comfortable if I did not meet every goal.  I was happy to be making better choices, and have something to reach for each and every day.  So, oddly, the … Continue reading

My February Test

My February Test

Several weeks ago, as I was planning my February goals, I set out on one that I didn’t publicize. Purposefully, I told no one, I wrote it no where, and within a few days, realized how important it was. For the month of February, I went Selfie Free.

Wouldn’t it be Nice?

Wouldn’t it be Nice?

As I watched the marathon trials on Saturday, in addition to being in awe at the way those athletes move, there was longing. Wishing for their strong strides. Their high knees. Their seemingly effortless glide over 26.2 miles.  Galen Rupp ran his first marathon, in the hottest Olympic marathon trials ever. And won. Actually, he … Continue reading
