Team runDisney February Challenge

Last month Team runDisney did a Photo-A-Day Challenge…well, the fun continued into February. I still managed to complete the challenge, but I wasn’t as enthusiastic about it this month as I was last month. It’s surprising because I was actually doing a runDisney race this month, but I think it was just losing it’s thrill…

StrideBox Update

A few months ago I wrote about an awesome subscription service for runners called StrideBox. Over the past couple months the delivery had been getting slower and slower and I was starting to get annoyed. When I first signed up the box would arrive no later than the 5th of each month. Around November I…

Disney’s Princess Half Marathon

I finally did the race that motivated me to start running! In 2011 my boyfriend and I were visiting Disney World during our Spring Break and as we were heading to the park we saw tons of people returning to the hotel in fluffy tutus, sparkly crowns, and big shiny medals. Immediately I wanted to…

Striiv Pedometer Update

Back in November I mentioned I got a pedometer and I’ve been loving keeping track of my steps. That was until I moved. When I was a student and living in New York I was walking every where all the time. I had no problem hitting 10,000 steps a day. Just getting around the city…

Sharks Tooth 10K Training

I’m running my first 10k in April called the Sharks Tooth 10K in Venice, FL. Amazing that I’ve been running for over two years and I hadn’t done an actual 10K race before. Time to do it I guess! Today marks the first day of my 10K training program. It is also the last week…

Princess Half Training: Week 16

Happy Valentines Day! This week I changed my running schedule a bit to be Monday, Wednesday, Friday instead of Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday because tomorrow morning I leave for New York! Since I have President’s Day off on Monday I decided to take a quick trip back to chilly New York to get some more things…

How to Workout Like an Olympic Champion

Are you ready to workout like an Olympic Champion? This is the full body workout you need to start doing NOW! The winter Olympic games are among us and as we see one chiseled athlete after another competing at what they do best, it makes me want to reiterate to the fitness community what it…

Princess Half Training: Week 15

We are finally in February with only a couple weeks remaining before the Princess Half Marathon. That means is crunch time and I have to do my best at getting every run in. This week started as any other with a short 30 minute run on Tuesday. I decided to try out my new Brooks…

Milestone: 500 Miles

This morning’s run wasn’t as long as I planned on it to be, but it was long enough for me to reach 500 miles on Nike+ which I’m very happy about. In my 400 miles post, I mentioned I wanted to reach 500 miles before the Princess Half Marathon. In the words of How I…

The Busy Dad and Busy Mom Workout

No matter what technological advances come out to make our lives more efficient and effective, we seem to have less and less free time in our daily lives.  With the daily responsibilities of being a parent, it seems nearly impossible to consistently make time for the gym.  But don’t worry; there are exercises you can…

Princess Half Training: Week 14

I had a hard time getting back in the swing of things this week. Between starting my career at Feld Entertainment and settling in in Florida, I hadn’t been running. I skipped my long run on Week 13, which means I had to make it up this week and I didn’t even get my first…
