It's easier to keep going than it is to stop and start again. The next time you're on your run and thinking about walking for just one second think about that. Think of yourself as a train. It takes forever to get going once you stop. Why is this though? I mean...to start with running and exercise is… Continue reading Don’t Stop Running
Running doesn't have that much in terms of fancy gear. Watches, apps, reflective clothes, and headlamps are all nice but not necessary, right? All we really need is a shirt (maybe), shorts, and shoes. Ding, ding, ding! That last one is very important. We don't have that much gear but that one thing, our shoes, is extremely important.… Continue reading Running Shoes: Your Best Friend
The short answer is yes. The long answer is a sassy question back at you: I don't know are you? Though it's a little reminiscent of a teacher asking a student "can you", it does bring up a good point. Do you think you are a runner? This is something a lot of people, runners… Continue reading Am I Runner?
Running is hard. We know that. It takes effort, our heart rate goes up, our breathing is labored, blah blah. We know that. But what if I said that stopping is the hard part of running? You'd probably slap me and tell me I'm a big fat liar. And I wouldn't fault you for that. Yes, running… Continue reading Break Through The Mile Mark

In our lives, it's very easy to allow a sense of obligation to domineer our activities. We easily allow our focus to shift from enjoying something… Continue reading Do It For Fun

But let's get into it before I'm persecuted. Okay, so you're a runner. Which means you run and you might even… Continue reading Running: With or Without Music?
Meet Avocado. This is my running mascot. He's actually an adorable dog toy my husband got me for Christmas. After moving him around from shelf to shelf, he landed on my running journal and I knew then that he was going to be my Running Avocado. He became my mascot! All right, I get it.… Continue reading Running Journal (And Mascot)
It’s Wednesday which means two things: I uploaded a video and I’m writing a blog post to go with it. Today’s special is…post-run yoga and why you should do it. To me, I discovered the beauty of post-run yoga a few years back through a Youtuber called Adriene. You can check out her very awesome… Continue reading Post-Run Yoga
I've said it before but I'll say it again. You thought of something when I said this. Maybe that should be your "sign", if you're looking for one at least. But this post is going to be about running. Actually, it's going to be about not running. Which is, to me, the hardest and most important… Continue reading Take A Break From It
