TotR: Airia Running Shoes

Today’s topic for Tuesdays on the Run is Treadmill Running.  I’m going to let Patty from My No-Guilt Life and Erika from MCM Mama Runs and the rest of our great bloggers tackle that topic because I just absolutely refuse to step foot on a treadmill.  I’ve tried and I just cannot stand it for more than fifteen minutes!  Maybe I’ll learn something from the rest of you that will help me figure out how … Continue reading

TotR: The HW App

I’m refreshing a post from about a year ago for our Tuesdays on the Run linkup with Patty from My No-Guilt Life and Erika from MCM Mama Runs featuring our favorite fitness apps.  There are some great apps out there for fitness, running and nutrition.  I remember having to carry around a little notebook in my purse to write things down and what a pain it was.  Having these apps (mostly free!) at my fingertips … Continue reading

TotR: Why I Don’t Run in the Dark

Today’s topic on Tuesdays on the Run with Patty from My No-Guilt Life, Erika from MCM Mama Runs and me is Running in the Dark.  While the Winter Solstice is behind us and the days are getting longer, it’s still dark when I leave for work in the morning and dark when I get home from work at night.  So how do I get my runs in when it’s dark outside? The short answer is … Continue reading

TotR: A Look Back at 2014

Last week, for Tuesdays on the Run, Patty from My No-Guilt Life, Erika from MCM Mama Runs and I did a walk through 2014 in photos.  Today’s topic is similar but with a slightly different take.  I’m going to go through my 2014 by the numbers. Races Run: 11 Miles Run: 360 (I’ve still got a few days left!) Pounds Gained: 17!  Yeah, I know, my eating was not ideal this year.  The good news … Continue reading
