High Five Friday

Happy almost weekend! šŸ™‚ I have no real plans for the weekend and I’m psyched about it. The farmer’s market has started back up, so I’ll most likely be checking that out on Sunday. The places I take the boys for mini hikes are all green and shady and pretty again. Maybe I’ll take a yoga […]

High Five Friday

Hello, hello! I am off on my 22 mile long run this morning (fingers and toes crossed this is a little less miserable than my 20 mile turned out), so send me some good vibes! šŸ™‚ While I’m running, I thought it’d be fun to link up with Angela for High Five Friday. My Instagram […]

What a 4-Year-Old Thinks of Having a Mother Runner

Last summer, I read posts from Angela and Allie in which they surveyed their kids about what they really thought about having a mother runner. The answers were funny, adorable and surprising, so I was of course excited to try it with Roman. He was not, unfortunately, having a bar of it:   So, @vitatrain4life […]

High Five Friday – Beauty

It’s Friday, I’m in love. It was kind of a week here. Roman was sick and I kept him home from pre-K one day, I fought off getting sick all week and my running schedule suffered. I also had a couple of deadlines I had to work around my schedule.  What I’m giving a big […]

High Five Friday – Runtastic

What Went On in February 2016

February is normally the month when everyone is well and truly over winter and starting to succumb to winter depression. Not so much this year, thanks to the crazy-warm winter we’re having. I never get bummed out about February, though, because my birthday is at the end of the month! (No, not on the 29th – I just […]

My Spring Style With prAna is Strong

Maybe you remember earlier this month, when I took part in the spring style with prAna and Fit Approach yoga Instagram challenge. I bent over backwards doing the laundry: I did the dancer in my living room: BUT – my everyday style has been lacking. I admit it. It’s been a whole lot of lounge wear (okay, […]

3 Awesome Running Playlists for Your Long Run

The last time I was training for a marathon, once my long run got up to about 15 miles, I found it hard to run without music. It’s usually a pretty black and white issue for runners – they’re either for or against listening to music when they run. I find it to be kind […]
