Life: For Real Though! (+ March/April Training Logs)

Life, Running

Hi Friends:) It’s literally been a month since I last updated. And what a month it’s been! As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been working through some pretty gnarly hormonal/health issues. I was honestly being a little too optimistic about my levels-of functioning back when I last posted about it.   At that […]

Book Review: How to Be Alone by Lane Moore

Life, Reading

Hi Friends! I’m FINALLY getting around to reviewing my first book of 2019! ICYMI, I made a goal to read 20 books in 2019, so I’m trying to keep a good 1.5-2 book per month groove going. This book appeared on a Buzzfeed list about self-help books that didn’t read like self-help books. Since reading […]

This Week in Workouts + Fave Music Right Now


Life, Running

Hi Friends:)   I’ve come to accept that my weekly workout posts are more about holding myself accountable than anything else. Aside from following a training plan, I’ve never kept a very detailed list of my workouts; typically I hit the gym and forget what I did there as soon as I leave that day. […]

Life, Running

Hi Friends:) I recently signed up for my first post-injury race (hooray!) I’ll be running a 5k on September 17th, and I’m pretty psyched about it:) I’ve run a whole lot of races; many 5ks, almost a dozen halfs, and a full marathon. I’ve run in five states, and I’ve used every mode of transportation […]

This Week in Workouts: Injury Recovery Edition!


Life, Running

Hi Friends:) So, now that I’m finally back home and (mostly) healed after so, so many weeks of traveling and moderating my activity levels, I feel like I have a workout debt to pay. Logically, of course, I know that a few weeks off from consistent workouts was what I needed to heal up my […]

Travel Guide: Seattle (aka Gluten-free heaven!)


Life

Hi Friends:) I was lucky enough to travel to Seattle last week after my 3 week stint working at a summer camp in California. I wasn’t up to running just yet when I was in Seattle, so I don’t have a whole lot of running tips for you. But I did REALLY enjoy all the […]

Getting Back into Running!


Life, Running

Hi Friends:) I went for my first run in over 8 weeks yesterday! YAY! In reality, it was more of a walk than a run. Per my doctor’s recommendation, I did 1 minute running/2 minutes walking repeats for the first 10 minutes. Since that felt good, I did 2 minutes running/2 minutes walking for the […]
