Sticking to your fitness routine when traveling

Last week, I traveled to Burlington, Vermont for work. I never thought I would visit Vermont simply because I don’t know anyone there and it’s also not on the way to places I would typically go. However, that is the region I do work for so I found myself there! I had a little bit of a chaotic day getting there. My laptop decided to stop working as I was leaving and my flight ended up being really delayed so…

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…

New Routine: How I’m fitting in my workouts

It’s a new routine, new beginnings, and a whole lot of chaos. I recently started a new job that I’m really excited about! As if we haven’t had enough change in our household lately with our move, buying a house, my husband starting a new job, and taking care of our little girl! I’m in my second week and it’s funny that I actually feel more organized now that I’m back at work and not staying at home with Ady….

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…

New favorite drink: discount included!

Hydration is such a huge part of living a healthy lifestyle.  It’s a necessary component to staying healthy, fueling a workout before and after, and helping you feel (and work) your best. I get asked about hydration a lot.  Friends of mine don’t know what they should be drinking before, during, and after workouts.  I also hear many people complain that water is boring.  While I don’t agree with that necessarily, I can understand where they are coming from. There…
