With that, happy Sunday! I hope you’ve had a great weekend. On Friday, Dan and I packed up my car and headed 2 hours north to Columbia, SC for an early morning race. Saturday we had plans to run the Mountain In The Middle 12K. Normally, I would just drive up the morning of, but […]

Yesterday morning I did something I haven’t done in over 5 weeks. Speed work at the track! Katie and I took a hiatus from track workouts about two weeks out from Kiawah’s Half Marathon. With my foot recovering and with the holidays neither of us were able to make track training happen. And boy could […]

And that’s just what they’ll do… Yup, I did it! Yesterday I put on some layers and laced up my Mizunos for a 3.2 mile run. The first time running since the terrible Kiawah Half. I’ve been a good little girl, listening to my body and allowing my foot to heal before trying anything (anything […]

Oh Friday, how I love it when you come fast! Especially after a productive week. I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet but Dan and I have officially rented our first studio gym! We’ve been running boot camps in karate studios, gymnastics facilities, etc and now we have our very own gym to call home. […]

Happy Sunday! My morning started off perfectly with fresh baked Thanksgiving bread. Thanksgiving bread? Never heard of it? I made it up yesterday while playing around in the kitchen. It includes all of my favorite flavors of the month: cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, cranberries and even sweet potatoes. Oh and it’s gluten-free, vegan, packed with gut […]

This past weekend I participated in the 10K Mountain Goat Invitational. After a series of trail runs spanning from South Carolina to Tennessee, past Go Run Trail runners who had placed were invited to participate in this end of the series 6.2 mile event. I felt privileged to be included. Trail running is something I […]

Good morning and happy Friday. I am extremely excited for this weekend, Dan and I are going to pick up my mom and head up to Laurel Springs, NC for a trail run invitational. Source In January, I did my very first trail run and realized just how amazing of a sport it is. I […]

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt  I’ve fielded some very good questions about the concepts of “Autoregulation” and “drop-off” lately, so I think I’ll dive into a little deeper explanation and elaborate on these ideas using a couple of actual workouts.  I’ll also toss a couple of new […]

Yesterday morning I ran a 10K, the  James Island Connector Run. I actually set a new PR (personal record), and then I went home and cried, oh and slept. Let me back up, when my alarm started to go off. Something like this happened… BEEP BEEP BEEP Dan: Rolls over and asks “How are you […]

Yesterday I ran my 3rd official half marathon. I set a new PR (personal record) and while that feels great, I’m still a bit disappointed. More on that in a second.   Before I jump in to the recap of the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon, I have to ask you a question that was asked […]

In just a few hours I’ll be hitting the road with Dan and Amanda to run my 3rd official half marathon in Myrtle Beach, SC. It also happens to be the very first half marathon that I ran last year. Like all runs, I am already anxious and excited. I keep wondering if I set […]

8 out of 10 women are currently wearing the wrong size sports bra.  That’s a fun fact that I learned on Friday when I visited my friends at Fleet Feet for my very first sports bra fitting.  This is the “Vixen” the bra I ended up with! If you’re like me, you likely just try […]

Tomorrow officially kicks of race season. Over the next 5 weeks I’ll be running 4 races. If you’re curious and looking for a good run in the Charleston area, here’s my schedule: Oct 12: Crowfield 5K Oct 20: Mini Marathon (Half) in Myrtle Beach Nov 2: James Island 10K (Use “DiscountKindal” for $5 off registration) […]

Yesterday, I felt as if I was standing in the middle of the Olympic stadium with crowds standing, cheering, and tossing roses down towards my feet. I waved back, a proud smile reaching from ear to ear. Okay, so I might have been completely alone yesterday morning. And there was no one around to congratulate […]
