Training While Traveling


Maintaining your training or workout routine can be difficult when you’re not in your typical day to day environment.  With a little planning ahead of time, you can still get in all of your scheduled workouts.  My recent travels to Philadelphia were a great way to practice training while traveling. With a little advance notice […]

Injury Update With Some Training


I’ve spent the past week slowly coming back from this: I use pictures to describe my injury because I have yet to figure out what it is.  Yesterday, at my appointment with the podiatrist, he found that same sore spot on the top of my foot.  What is causing this ONE spot to feel like […]


Treadmill workout in the Saucony Virratas

A while ago, I shared in this POST about a special Valentine’s Day gift.  Since then, I have slowly worked my way into, wait for it…treadmill workouts! Believe me, I’m the last person who thought I would ever be talking about or actually doing a treadmill workout.  I’ve never been a huge fan of treadmills.  I […]

My Feet and Good Eats

My right foot

Did I share my news from the weekend?  Here’s a clue from how it went… I’ll rewind. The day started out like this… A great day with friends, touring around the beautiful Seneca Lake. This picture makes me laugh…a bit distracted and busy. Apparently we remained distracted for the rest of the day.  I say […]



Ever since I got my new car, complete with Sirius XM radio, my music taste hasn’t been the same. My favorite has been channel 35, Sirius XM U Indie Rock. After obsessively every day, I have so many NEW favorite bands, so why not share them?  I won’t throw them at you all at once…that […]

My Heart and Soles


I don’t know what it is about Valentine’s Day, but I just love it! AND, now, I have an even bigger reason to love it… My Valentine comes up with the best gift ideas.  Tadaaaa! OR maybe it’s because he wants me to stop complaining that I can’t run when it’s icy outside.  Either way, […]

Wordless Wednesday


Round 2!

My snowshoes

More snow could only mean one thing…round 2 of snowshoeing! I had some great snowshoeing questions from my previous POST: Advice for first timers?  I’m fairly new to snowshoeing myself, but I can offer some of what I have learned so far. 1.  It’s a good idea to know how you expect to use the […]

“Cool” Running

Trying to show off my snowshoe jumping skills

We finally got some real snow!  Miss out on running?  No way…just put on those snowshoes and hit the trails! My husband  and I own the Model 121 Racing Dion Snowshoes, so they are very lightweight and easy to wear for running in the snow.  The type of frame you choose for your snowshoes will […]

Big Events Coming…

Next month...

In a few weeks something big is happening… I’m turning the big 3-0!  In preparation for this event, I’ve decided to attend other 30th birthdays to see how I like it. One way to help your loved ones celebrate turning 30 is to throw their surprise party two weeks early.  That way they get concerned […]
