Remember when you came back to school and had to write a little story about everything you did over the summer? I always thought it was so much fun to share all my success stories with my friends, and hear everything that they got to do. Usually all I did was go camping, but it … More How I Spent My Summer Vacation
As I’ve said before, I took a brief hiatus from running so that I could focus on my wedding. I remember saying how much I missed running throughout the months of May and June, but every night was filled with seating charts and “oh-so-necessary” DIY projects that I found on Pinterest that took way longer … More Wednesday Wisdom: How to start running (again)
BIG NEWS: I bought my first pair of “real” running shoes today! Yes, I fell head over heels in love with those beautiful blue Mizuno Wave Inspire 9s that I tried on this weekend (see pic below). Now, there is no way I wanted to pay $115 dollars for running shoes, but these things were … More Shoe Success! (but GPS problems…)
So I’m a relatively newish runner, so I think I can get away with saying that for the longest time I had no idea that you needed special running shoes based on the way you run in order to be a successful runner. The first pair of shoes I ever ran in were Under Armor … More Overpronate much?
So no run for me today – work wins again tonight. Instead we are having a relaxing night in watching The Fox and The Hound on Netflix. My husband has never seen it so I obviously had to change that! Anyways, when I came home today I had a package waiting for me: part of … More My New Running Outfit!
I know, I’m a terrible runner – today was my first run since Milwaukee on Saturday! But I’ve got some pretty legit excuses. On Sunday our flight out of Chicago got cancelled, and it took us forever to get home. And this week I’m totally swamped at work, so it’s a miracle I even got … More Back to Philly Running
Hey everyone! Keeping this blog updated has been tricky while in Milwaukee, mostly because we are having a great time here! Yesterday we weren’t able to fit a run into our schedule, mostly because we spent most of the day either in traffic or waiting for my parents to get to the hotel so that … More Road Trip Running: Day 4
Greetings from Chicago! Today is day #2 of our Midwest road trip and we are having a blast! Update on day #1: we arrived in Pittsburgh super late but still had time to fit in some “dinner” at Eat N Park (I got their amazing grilled stickies of course) and then stopped on Mt. Washington … More Road Trip Running: Day 2
Hey everyone! Today is the start of my mini vacation with my sister! She’s going out to the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee to get her Ph.d, and the only way to get her car out there is to have a road trip! So last night I drove to my parent’s house in Reading, which is … More Road Trip Running: Day 1
I’ve only been running for one year, but I’ve actually had running goals way before I even started running. That might sound crazy, but I’ve always dreamed about running and just thought that I was too slow and out of shape to even try. In high school I used to walk the mile during the … More My Secret (or not-so-secret) Running Goals
