Weekend + Last Week’s Workouts

I’m a little late getting to this post but better late than never, right? We had a great weekend and I thought I would share some of it with you guys. We are really getting out of the house a lot so that we can get to know our new city as much as possible! There is a lot to do here and we are learning the food is incredible. (Also, I couldn’t load all of my pictures for some…

When you run a marathon… and then find out you’re pregnant

I ran the Chicago Marathon (my 4th marathon) back in October. In my recap post I talked about how the race did not go as planned and I did so much worse than I thought I would. These things happen in any race and to any runner but there were a number of factors I identified that led to my poor performance. What I didn’t realize at the time was that one of those factors was that I was pregnant!…

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…

The Marathon That Won’t Happen

I signed up to run the full marathon in Nashville quite awhile ago. I was all pumped up about it, had my training plan ready to go, and was focused. Then… life happened. (Also, a reason I haven’t posted as much!) I wanted to share my journey of returning to run a marathon after pregnancy, all about my training runs, and how I was doing. But the truth is, life just got crazy. We moved (which was a lot more…

Buying a Treadmill for your Home

For a really long time, I have wanted my own treadmill.  Like a really long time.  Just ask my husband.  He’s heard about it… a lot. So when we left our condo in the city and moved into a house, I knew this was my chance to get one!  The only problem was that I didn’t know what to get.  So I began my research.  I thought it might be helpful to write about what I found along the way…
