Let me tell you a little personal story. I've always known that a good, solid running shoe is really important. I know that the right kind for you foot is important. Right size, same deal. I also know that skimping on money isn't really what you should be doing with a running shoe. When I… Continue reading Get Fit (Into Good Running Shoes)
I'm not a doctor. I'm not a doctor. But I do have asthma. And I did think I had asthma for quite awhile before I went to a doctor. And I did struggle from it. And I knew there could be something more serious. But...I did nothing? Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com All right, let's… Continue reading Do You Have Asthma?
Hello! This article is a little fluffy but a lot of fun. I'll be doing these twice a year; once for the cooler/cold weather and once for the warmer/hot weather. 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?

To be fair, I am not saying treadmill running is exciting. Or interesting. It feels like nothing other… Continue reading Running Is Boring

And it makes me want to rip my legs off most of the time. Sometimes though, it's not good exercise. It isn't relaxing. It agitates me and I leave… Continue reading Running Shoes and Injury
While running. I probably just lost half of you since you'll be guessing that I run without music. But before you knock me as crazy and leave this blog, hear me out at least a little. I often run without headphones so that I can find a sense of silence. I've found that without headphones,… Continue reading Finding Silence
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.
