Training for a Marathon – with your Significant Other

(2013 Country Music Marathon) (2013 Country Music Marathon) (Hot Chocolate Race – Chicago) (Brett came out to support me run the Women’s Half Marathon – Chicago) In my opinion, training for a marathon is so much more fun when you do it with someone. You have someone to not just run with but vent to, compare runs, talk about all things running related, and the extra support is super helpful. It gets a little more interesting though when the person…

Review: Orangetheory Fitness

(Logo from Orangetheory Fitness website.) Since I moved to Nashville, I have been searching for gyms that have similar workouts to the ones I fell in love with in Chicago (hence my last post). I really love the high intensity interval training (HIIT) classes and began a search immediately when we moved here. I stumbled upon Orange Theory Fitness and decided to try it out. They have quite a few locations throughout the country and 2 locations specifically that are…

Where to find your next RACE!!

It’s no secret I LOVE running races. The whole experience is great to me. I have run numerous races and I have to say one of the hardest things about planning my races each year is actually finding them. When I was living in Chicago, I would get some serious winter blues so I would start planning my races in January for the summer and fall. I would have to search around online to find different ones. To be honest,…

Early morning summer runs are here!

Summer is really here! I think I’m still stuck in the Chicago mindset where summer is sort of a tease still. You get these great, beautiful days but then a few cold days suddenly strike. I remember wearing a coat one year in June. You never really know when the summer temps are there to stay. But I’m happy to say that here in Nashville, they are indeed here to stay. And I’m so excited! Summer is my favorite time…

Mother’s Day 2015

I had such a great Mother’s Day yesterday. It was just such a good day to spend with my family and I really, really enjoyed it. Plus, I discovered some new spots in Nashville, possibly the best brunch I have ever had, and found out my little girl is going to be quite the water baby. Brett and Ady woke me up with a cute little card. Ady was holding it in her hand waving it at me. It had…

Country Music Half Marathon 2015: Race Recap

So I have to admit how nervous I really was for the half marathon I just ran last weekend. It’s silly, I know, because it’s not like I was going to win the race. I wish! But it was a big deal to me. It was my first race after having my daughter (10 months after to be exact) and I had no idea how I was going to do. My current PR is around 1:45 so I decided to…
