Fall, Is That You?!

You guys – it might finally be starting to happen. I think fall is on its way – and just in time because today is officially the first day of fall! Hallelujah – marathon training in summer has not exactly been fun. Bring on the cold weather! It was noticeably darker out when I arrived at the track this morning (boo), but also a bit cooler (huge Continue Reading …

Long Run + Weekend Fun

Hey guys! Matt and I had such a nice weekend – relaxing and filled with lots of friend time. My favorite! On Friday, we had a cozy night in on our own – Matt picked up a pizza for us from Lost Dog Café and I made us side salads to get in some veggie volume. It was humid but cool enough to eat outside by the time we tucked in around 8. We spent Continue Reading …

Weekend Food + Fitness

Anytime Kris is back in the Philadelphia area visiting family (she currently lives in Continue Reading …

The Hottest 10 Miler

I was originally planning to bag my long run for the week; I didn’t end up doing it while we were in the Outer Banks because, to be honest, I didn’t feel like it! Running for me is a happy, positive thing, and getting up crazy early on my vacation to run 10 miles by myself sounded like the opposite of fun. It was also insanely humid there. So Continue Reading …

Hiking in and around Eugene, Oregon

Hey friends! I’m back in DC after a really fun trip out to the west coast! As you guys know, I was there with Brooks for the annual Run Happy Blogger Ambassador trip, but I flew out a day early to see my friend Ashley who lives in Eugene, Oregon! I’ll be back tomorrow with a recap of the Brooks portion of the trip, but for now, let’s chat about Continue Reading …

Hi friends! I’m glad many of you enjoyed Alex’s guest post yesterday on the health benefits of meditation and why you should give it a shot. I wrote a guest post for her last week, entitled 3 Tips to Fall in Love with Exercise. If you missed it, give it a look! :) And now, my weekend recap! I needed a little longer than usual to write this one Continue Reading …

Mother’s Day Weekend Adventures

Hey friends! Did you have a fun weekend? Ours was nice and relaxing – a great mix of fun workouts and good food with friends and family. On Saturday, we enjoyed a relaxing morning and then met our friends Kathleen and Zach for a 10:30 boot camp class at Urban Athletic Club. It was an awesome workout, as always – Graham was teaching and his Continue Reading …
