Got Goals? My Plans for the New Year.

It’s that time of year when everyone starts looking forward to the calendar flipping over to a whole new year, a new number, a fresh start. Whether your 2015 has been magical, or you’ve advised it not to let the door hit it on the way out, a new year feels like a good time […]

Even Coaches Need Coaching – January Reset for Runners

There’s a common misconception that fitness professionals are always in peak form, always have it all together when it comes to working out and nutrition and don’t need any help – after all, if they’re a trainer or a coach, they can just use their expertise on themselves, right? Wrong. And I need help! My […]

3 Accidental Healthy Habits

Sometimes it seems like making changes for a healthy lifestyle can seem overwhelming and just too hard. I’ve heard it so often from clients – it’s like they have no idea where to start, or what to focus on. There are so many ways of approaching eating healthy, moving more and staying active – it can easily […]

Running Tips: How to Become a Morning Runner

It’s easy to believe all the people you know who are just getting back from their run as you stumble bleary-eyed to the coffee maker are born morning people. If you took an informal poll of the runners in your life, though, I think it would surprise to you to find out there are a […]

Real Life Bucket List

I LOVE bucket lists. Love them. If you are a blogger and you write a bucket list, I will read it closely. I want to see what you want to do, what drives you, your dreams and aspirations…and then I will crib off you and pick things off your list to add to my own.  For as […]

The Run Report – 26.2 on my horizon

Okay guys, run report time. Confession (and it’s not even time for runfessions yet!) – I haven’t been doing a lot of running. I’ve been doing a few short runs, like 3 miles or less, along the river, or on the trails near our new place. But honestly, with the unpacking/organizing (we’ve finished unpacking but […]

5 Ways to Organize Your Week (and Beat Procrastination)

I am a master of procrastination. If something needs to be done, I will find a way to distract myself and then curse myself at three in the morning trying to finish on a deadline. When we decided to move to Vermont within a five-week timeline, procrastination wasn’t going to cut it. Not with two kids […]

The Run Report: Running Bucket List for NYC

When we made the decision to move to Vermont next month (that is officially a weird thing to write, by the way – I don’t think it’s sunk in completely!), we talked about stuff we’d miss in New York and Brooklyn, as well as what we were looking forward to in our new home. My […]

Nobody is Doing it All

We compare. That’s what we do. You can read that quote “comparison is the thief of joy” a hundred times, but I doubt it’s ever yet stopped you from sizing yourself up against somebody – a friend, a relative, a celebrity, the person in line in front of you at the store. But what are you […]

The Trouble With SHOULD – Throwback Thursday

Who’s ready for a holiday weekend? I am looking forward to spending time with some family and friends, enjoying some good food, good times and yes, probably running too! For this week’s Throwback Thursday with Brittany, I started thinking about all the pressure we put on ourselves based on what we think we should be […]
