The real reason I started running

Obviously, I talk about running a lot. I share information I find about it, my favorite running items, places to run, races I run, and on and on. But, I don’t think I’ve ever shared why I run. The most important reason I run. I run for so many reasons: my health, my alone time, to stay in shape, and to run races. But the main, and most important reason I run, is to control my stress. I have had…

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.

Running With Asthma

As all of my friends, families, and any readers of my blog know – I love working out and specifically love running.  I have run numerous races including 4 half marathons and 3 full marathons.  Well here is something some of you don’t know: I have asthma. I developed asthma while in college (in undergrad).  This sounds crazy, I know.  I had no idea this was something that could develop later in life but it did.  After breaking out in…
