Book Review: Stronger by Kara Goucher

It is no secret to those that know me that I love books.  Mostly Non-fiction books and self-improvement books.  There is just something about nonfiction-self improvement-running books that hit every single passion that I have.  Give me that and a strong woman that are being open about the mental struggles that she has, even as […]

Packing Your Gym Bag

Packing your gym bag can seem like an endless task.  Sweaty clothes in and out, making sure that there are fresh soaks in there.  Did I pack a hand towel instead of a regular towel for the showers?  Shit, I packed a change of clothes for after the race but I forgot a bra and […]

Review Trail Jenny Soaps & Body Products

As I write this, I am knee deep into my training.  While I was meant to be doing a marathon on December 1st, life does not always go to plan and I am bumping it up to November 18th in my hometown of Philadelphia.  While I am super excited about it it does put more […]

JayBird vs Jlab: Battle of the headphones.

I am a huge advocate of learning how to run in all conditions.  Rain, shine, cold, heat…all of it.  The thing that I didn’t think about when I first started running through was running with or without headphones.  I should have though.  My first half marathon was a learning experience.  That is to say that […]

Reasons to Run (That have nothing to do with loosing weight)

It’s no secret that I love running.  I dedicate a lot of time and energy to it.  But even I can forget during training just why I’m putting my body through 40 or more miles a week.  Of course, there are the physical fitness reasons why running is great.  Cardiovascular health, breathing, weight loss (though […]

Types of Cross Training For Runners

I love my running, sometimes a little bit too much.  If I could run for every workout, I probably would.  But the truth is that I can’t and I shouldn’t.  Over the past few decades running and science behind running has really evolved.  Pretty much gone are the days where we just thought that runners […]
