Keeping myself fueled and hydrated during my long runs is a top priority. Over the last couple of years I’ve munched down and spit out various kinds of fuel, gels, bars, blocks, gummies, etc… and I’ll be the first to say that what works for one person will not necessarily be the thing that works best for you. Really, trial and error is, unfortunately, the only way to go. Having said that, I’d like to introduce you to one of my very favorite tasty, Continue reading →
Okay guys, here’s my very first “What’s In My Bag” post. This bag is one of my favorites from Lululemon and I pack it around with me non-stop! It’s roomy interior is large enough for me to stash away all of my running gear, it has two water bottle pockets, interior pockets to stow away small, easy-to-lose items like jewelry and hair accessories and it even has a separate compartment for my Continue reading →
Here’s my 2nd installment in my “I’ll Show You Mine” series. People often ask me what I wear during races and why, so I thought this was a great way of listing what I wear, why I love it, and what keeps me fueled during specific races.

Not only does he write one of my favorite running blogs, he’s also a HUGE inspiration to me (he finished an Ironman with a destroyed knee!!!). On top of all that he’s also been incredibly generous to me and I wanted to share with you guys some of the awesome goodies I’ve received from Punk Rock Racing! Continue reading →
First off, a big ol’ apology for being so out of the loop lately. My ankle injury has really taken it’s toll on me and honestly it’s made staying motivated a real challenge. But enough of the boo-hooing, let’s get down to business!
So, a very loooong 14 weeks ago I made one silly little misstep *doh* while trail running that has now resulted in me being out of the game nearly 3 months! *ugh* During the time that I’ve been injured it’s definitely been an uphill battle, I’ve been in constant pain, my ankle puffs up like a blowfish from time to time, and some days it’s a struggle just to Continue reading →
