Rock ‘n’ Roll DC 2015 Half Marathon Race Recap

Hi friends! As you know, I ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon over the weekend with my college friends Kathleen and Sarah! Despite the cold, rainy day, we had a blast.

Brooks Stocking Stuffer Giveaway!

The weather here has been so weird lately – one day it’s balmy, the next it’s frigid. What the heck, mother nature? Last Thursday morning was one of those frigid days.

Hello, hello! Matt and I are continuing to enjoy our vacation here in the Outer Banks, NC with family.

Good morning and happy Friday the 13th! Spooooookyyyy. I started my day off the best way I know how: with a friend running date. :) My friend Karen and I have done a lot of runs down on the mall together lately, so today we decided to mix it up.

A Sunrise 7 Miler

Good morning, my friends! I hope you’re all settling back into the workweek after the nice long holiday weekend! I decided the best way to get myself back on a work schedule quickly was to drag myself out of bed for an early run yesterday morning. This view was worth it, don’t you think? Continue Reading …

32 Hours in NYC

On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of spending the day in NYC with Brooks and my fellow Run Happy blogger ambassadors. How does your day start when traveling with a running brand? With a run, of course. :) A big group of Brooks staff, a couple ladies from their PR team, and the bloggers and I all met in the hotel lobby that morning, ready to go. Continue Reading …
