Sarasota Music Half Training: Week 2

Despite a sleepless night on Sunday leading into Monday, I was determined to get my first run of the week in. Around 7:30pm I decided to go for a run around my neighborhood. Since I moved into my new house I hadn’t gone for a run through my neighborhood, so I figured it was time…

Turkey Trotting

It’s that time of the year again. The day that we give thanks, spending time with family, eat lots of food, and…run a race. This morning I did the Sarasota Turkey Trot again. Just one of many Turkey Trots around the country. It’s a great way to start out Thanksgiving, and then you don’t have…

Review: Pines Wheat Grass

I was lucky enough to receive a sample of Wheat Grass Powder by Pines International. What really hooked me was that it’s a gluten free product, which seem ironic since wheat is in the name. As I’ve mention before on my blog, my mom eats gluten free so I often try to do that too,…

Sarasota Music Half Training: Week 1

I had one week off between training for the Wine and Dine Half and training for the Sarasota Music Half. As I will now be running my fourth half marathon I decided to try a different training program…and not just because this race is outside of Disney so a training program hasn’t been provided for me….

My First 13.1

On November 8th, I did something I never thought I could do.  I ran my first half marathon.  About three years ago, my girlfriend, Muffy, got me into running.  We did some 5Ks that I really enjoyed, and I began to run those pretty often, but that was the extent.  I always looked at half marathoners…

Scheduling Workouts is Not a Walk in the Park

I don’t know about you, but lately I’ve found it extremely hard to schedule my workouts lately. Things have gotten really busy at work, which has certainly impacted my workout schedule, but at the same time I just find myself preoccupied with other things. I haven’t been to LA Fitness in over a month now….

Milestone: 700 Miles

Over the weekend I ran the Wine and Dine Half Marathon and during it, I hit 700 miles with Nike+. Only one problem…my Nike+ SportWatch GPS had died at one point, so the date had reset itself and it says my run took place on February 4, 2010. I’m pretty upset about that. I asked…

Wine & Dine Half Marathon

Back in 2012 I ran the Wine and Dine Half Marathon and it was my very first half. This year I ran it again and it was a completely different experience. It was wet. Yes, you heard me. It was wet…rained basically the entire time. And I can tell you right now, unless I have…

Wine & Dine Training: Week 10

It had arrived…the final week of training. The half marathon is tomorrow. Yikes! I started out the week with an OrangeTheory Fitness class…and that’s pretty much where it ended. I did back to back classes on Sunday and Monday, so I ended up canceling my session on Wednesday. I didn’t want to push too hard…

EveryMove: Rewards for Healthy Activities

A few months back I wrote about a cool app I found called Pact, which pays you for healthy activities. Well I recently found another awesome app called EveryMove, which rewards your healthy activities with discounts on products and services. Here’s how it works. EveryMove uses the health and fitness related apps you’re already using…

Wine & Dine Training: Week 9

The end of week nine means were just a few days away from the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. Ready or not, here we come! This past week was not great. I had another business trip and it was to Cincinnati so I stay through the weekend to visit with the boyfriend. Between working and…
