  • What’s the best way to refuel after a tough workout, especially if I have no appetite?
  • The top myths about calorie counting, scoring, and tracking percentages

    I’d say I probably gained a couple pounds, but as far as I could tell it was all muscle. My thighs are definitely stronger! :) You’re right, though – all that running made me SO hungry and I had to make sure I wasn’t over (or under!) fueling!

    What is PiYo?

    Do you think you can email me the document with these so i can print them and use it to make my own training schedule? (for both cherry 10 miler and marathon) I really like it but the format prints as an image.

    What was your first race ever? what was your pace? How did you get faster?

    Anne, I’m running my first half marathon in two weeks and was wondering if you could point me to any posts you’ve written about pre-race eating (I’m really nervous about over-fueling leading up to the run and then having an unhappy tummy). Advice appreciated!

      Hey Kendall, I’ve been meaning to do a full post about this – stay tuned! But for now, I usually stick with a piece of toast with a little almond butter and a sliced banana. Test it out on your next run and see how it goes!

    Hi Anne, I was wondering if you’ve done a post on what kind of gear you recommend when training? Not only clothing, but things like your Garmin etc. I notice you wear a pack sometimes on longer runs. Is it a specialised running one? Thanks :)
