What Do You Do While Running?

I've recently gotten back into the running life, and so far I am enjoying it. What I am NOT enjoying is the sub-freezing temperatures, snow, sleet and wind. That damn wind can pierce anything! When I first started running seriously back in 2012, I used to listen to music. I created running playlists trying to... Continue Reading →

Resolutions… Anyone?

The new year is a time for life changes and resolutions. I've never really been good at this whole new years resolutions, because, let's face it, in the middle of winter, everything you can think to better yourself sounds like a good idea. But as the days get longer, it feels like you have more... Continue Reading →

Grounded

It's a little late, but allow me to wish all of you a Happy New Year, and a wonderful 2014!! As many of you know I recently returned from a 5 week orchestra tour through China. For 5 weeks I rode in busses, trains, and planes. I slept in very hard beds, ate oily and... Continue Reading →

Thoughtfully Checking In…

August is over half over, so my self imposed "no drinking and running/biking/exercising to get back on track" edict is nearly over, so I thought I'd check in. I miss drinking. I am so boring sober. My jokes fall flat. My witty cynicism is locked somewhere behind an anonymous bar waiting to be opened and... Continue Reading →

Stalled Out, Coast, and Restart

You know when you're just chugging along down the road and you look up and have no idea where you are and where you are going? You do? Good. That has been the past 8 months of my life. A little over a year ago I did my 30-Day Experiment by going vegan and running.... Continue Reading →

What will 2013 bring?

Ok, so it's been over two months since my previous post. There are several reasons why I haven't been posting, and I'll get into that in future posts. Believe me, you'll hear all about it. I was hesitant to write in the new year because I didn't want to write down some unattainable New Year... Continue Reading →

Race Day thoughts

Since this was my fist major race, I really didn't know what I was getting into on the brisk, nay FREAKIN' COLD morning of November 3rd. I was a tad nervous to say the least. As the time got closer to the 8am start, the temperature didn't rise like I was hoping and I couldn't... Continue Reading →

Run a Half Marathon…Check!!

I just got home from running, and finishing the Monumental Half-Marathon! According to texts my friends received (and then sent me), I finished in 2 hours, 11 minutes and 51 seconds! This race was cold, kind of dreary, and crowded, but hey, I finished it! When this all started I wanted to run races as... Continue Reading →

And now the Playlist!

Wow! I've been tweaking this playlist since I've started running regularly back in June, and I feel like I really have it poppin' right now! Last night, instead of relaxing and getting 10 hours of sleep, I stayed up and added the Beats Per Minute (BPM) for every tune in my list! Ideally, I want... Continue Reading →

It’s Here!

The half-marathon I have been training for is right around the corner, and I'm pretty excited about it! I'm also excited that I'm doing this as a Plant Powered runner! Speaking of Plant Powered, I got my 'No-Meat-Athlete' long sleeve shirt in the mail last week and have been proudly wearing it on the final... Continue Reading →
