August 2011

It was a good Tuesday. An entire section of clearance wine at Food Lion? The typical wine connoisseur would probably say, “What’s wrong with it?” I say “suh-weeeet” and grab 5. And “Who wants to come over for wine night?” Upon meeting homegirl Jamie at the gym for our usual workout date, she told me […]


I Win, IT Band.

August 30, 2011 · 19 comments

The sports massage for my hurting IT band? Heavenly. And I learned so much about my muscles, stretching, and how to prevent the injury. On tap for the rest of marathon training? LOTS of foam rolling. Probably more sports massages. And lots and lots of stretching. I skipped my 18 miler to be safe, but […]

Chloe and I fled Virginia Beach once an evacuation was issued for my area for hurricane Irene. So, where did we find ourselves at midnight last night? Arriving right here at my sisters house outside of Fredericksburg, VA. so happy to have escaped to safety. My day has been spent doggy-proofing Amy’s house (read: hiding […]


“HURRICANE’A COMIN!” Pop Quiz – What movie is that from? 😉 (source) Somebody’s mother (I’m not mentioning names, but she’s a hot mom) keeps sending text messages to her daughter telling her she needs to hit the deck, flee for the hills, evacuate the area, and batten down the hatches.

Since I have lived almost all of my life on the East Coast (save for my three years growing up in England), my Facebook was completely alight with status updates regarding our earthquake. (source) Since I’m a Virginia resident, all my friends and family members were completely blowing up my phone as I’m frantically trying […]


My Running Story

A reader recently asked me to explain how I started running. Believe it or not, I used to hate running. Absolutely hated it. I had to keep in shape for field hockey, the sport I played for 11 years and played in college. My first time running was for the 6th grade mile. I still […]

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t thoroughly enjoy the fact that I can see what search terms people type into Google to land over here. I’d be rude if I didn’t share, right? Some of my recent favorites: 1. “surprise disney fanny packs” SURPRISE! Clearly, you have come to the right place. You’re […]


When Swanson Health contacted to review their products, I was excited to take my pick of a variety of vitamins and supplements on their website. I was psyched to finally get the chance to try chia seeds! I’ve been looking all over for them to add to my fruit and yogurt bowls. They add the […]


Yesterday was no exception to this rule. Things I learned: Lesson 1: Justin likes to stretch for about 10 minutes before he lifts. I know this because I lifted with him for over an hour yesterday. Sigh. This was even better than running on the treadmill next to him. If you follow me on Twitter, […]
