Maine Half Marathon

Sunday morning was the Maine half marathon, and it was such a special race for so many reasons.

There were six of us running: Allie, Jen, Jes, Sandra, Carrie and I. With our busy weekend, I had little time to think or worry about the race – we chatted Saturday evening over pizza and […]

Run Rise Retreat Recap

This weekend is not easy to summarize. I’ve gone to a lot of blogging conferences and events, but this retreat was completely different.

It was perfect. The pace was relaxed and full of fun activities but not over-scheduled. The setting was stunning. And best of all, it was a warm, inviting group of women. […]

Workout Recap + Meal Planning from Run Rise Retreat

Hi friends!

I thought I had this post scheduled for Sunday morning but it never went up- oops! I didn’t realize until I got home late last night.

I have lots of catching up to do from our amazing running retreat in Maine.

There were ten of us, all running bloggers, and most of us […]

Natural Running Fuel + Free Personalized Running Plan!

Hi friends!

I’m super excited about this. Since I began working with runners, I’ve wanted to find a way to combine running coaching with a giveaway of products that can support them to run their best, recover well and feel their best.

You know I’m passionate about natural foods, including training fuel, and I’m really […]

Why I'm No Longer Running High Mileage

First, I guess I should say high mileage is all relative. Right?

But I follow quite a number of runners who will hit 60+ miles in training, some closer to 100 miles per week. And although I still find this incredibly inspiring, I no longer compare myself. Partly because I’m realizing I no longer have […]

What we made this weekend + another 5k

It was a busy Saturday here… how was yours?

Mine started with another 5k, this time with a perfect cool morning. I shaved a few seconds off from last week and was happy with the effort. I may have to make the sub-20 a spring goal!

I felt good today, but realized I’m not […]

To snack or not to snack

How often do you or your kids snack?

Our schools had off yesterday and I find that when we’re home, my 5 yo will ask for a snack an hour or two after breakfast, an hour or two after lunch, and again (always!) as I’m cooking dinner.

The fewer activities we have, the more she’s […]

Junior League 5k Race Recap

We had a super busy Saturday, with the 5k (and my vendor table) all morning and a school carnival all afternoon. I was lucky enough to have my whole family at the race (aka husband with the camera).

The 5k was okay.

Of course, the night before was the one night that our baby girl […]

First of 8 Fall Races + Meal Planning

Yes, 8 races in the next month. This is so unlike me… it will be an adventure, at the very least!

The first one was a local 5k yesterday. I had a great time, as in fun! Not great as in the race time I wanted but those days come. Details soon… I did however […]

A simple, effective playground workout

This weekend, we spent quite a few mornings at the playground. Baby J is now old enough to toddle around and has discovered she can climb the steps and go down the slide herself!

Rather than stick in a dvd or do a strength workout alone in the basement, I’ve been combining my workout (when […]
