No Excuses | Get Ready To Fly

It’s time to switch gears – on from Princess and on to Tink. It’s time to find my wings and get ready to fly. I’ve been in a bit of a running AND work out rut since I got back from PHM Weekend. That does me no good when I have seven weeks to a two race… Continue reading No Excuses | Get Ready To Fly

“I like time. There’s so little and so much of it.” [Pay Attention]

Some of you are probably well aware if you know me in real life. Haha. I think of the subject line quote (from one… Continue reading “I like time.

Learning The Galloway Way

The runDisney runners out there probably already know about the Galloway way (named for Jeff Galloway). I’ve also heard it called Gallowalking. From the runDisney website: Jeff’s quest for the injury-free marathon training program led him to develop group training programs in 1978, and to author Runner’s World articles which have been used by hundreds of… Continue reading Learning The Galloway Way

Cross Training Spotlight: BodyFlow™

It’s been awhile since my first spotlight, so it seemed about time for another. So, let’s talk about BodyFlow™. Fun fact: It’s only called BodyFlow in the United States. If you go anywhere else in the world, or are visiting this blog from anywhere else in the world (hi! welcome!), you’ll see BodyBalance™. So, Flow/Balance –… Continue reading Cross Training Spotlight: BodyFlow™

How’s the weather? [I’m Feelin’ HOT HOT HOT]

Let’s get one thing straight from the start: I live in San Diego. I grew up not in San Diego, but in another Southern California beach town (primarily). I am SPOILED as heck by the weather (I pay rather dearly to be spoiled by the weather in fact). My yearly seasons tend to look like… Continue reading How’s the weather? [I’m Feelin’ HOT HOT HOT]

The runDisney races are BIG. We’re talking thousands and thousands of people. In fact, this past weekend, I read that nearly 16,000 participated in the Disneyland Half Marathon and nearly 29,000 participated in some part of Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend (there was also a 5k, 10k, and several kids’ races – so CUTE!). Wow! Right????… Continue reading Proof of Time

Wow! Slacking on my blogging… I need to brainstorm some ideas. 🙂 Today, we’re talking hill repeats. Some of you reading this shuddered at reading it because you KNOW… and some of you are like, uh, what? It is exactly what it sounds like. Hills. Repeatedly.

Running Buddies [Accountability]

I had made a note a few weeks ago to talk about running buddies and accountability here on the blog, but I hadn’t figured out how to say what I wanted to say yet. Then, just the other day, a friend and I were chatting about training, running, and schedules. She’s doing Pixie Dust with… Continue reading Running Buddies [Accountability]
