What Am I Running In?

And it's spring up here which means I'm running in less than I was a few weeks ago. The most, most important thing I run… Continue reading What Am I Running In?

Running and Writing on Vacation

Onto another post about vacations! If you aren't interested in vacation material you might want to check back next week. Or you could just save this post for when you take a break this summer.

Running With A Foot Injury

Can anyone tell that I recently had a (running related) foot injury? What gave it away? Was it last week's post and this week's post? In all seriousness, we don't pay enough attention to our feet.

Running Tips For Beginners

Happy New Year! Though I'm not a huge fan of resolutions (I blabbed all about here), lots of us are going to be flocking to the gym today with both goals and resolutions. And a fair chunk of us will be hopping on the treadmill to run. But we don't know how. Running or any other physical activity means… Continue reading Running Tips For Beginners

Snowy Weather Running Tips

I am excited about writing this one! I love running in the snow. It's one of my most favorite things in the world. It's beautiful. It's cold. It's challenging. And it's riveting.

Cold Weather Running Tips

And no. I do not mean forty to fifty degrees. Since I'm from Chicago, cold means below freezing. Cold means a nice, freezing wind chill. Cold means below zero. So if you're an outdoor runner like me and enjoy being outside no matter the elements, let's took a look at some tips and tricks for running in… Continue reading Cold Weather Running Tips
