8 Miles Before 8 a.m.

IMG_1000

When my alarm went off a little after 6 this morning for my running date, I REALLY wasn’t feeling it. I’m tiiiiired, I whined to myself. I probably shouldn’t have had those 2 glasses of red wine at happy hour last night, either. I checked my phone: freezing rain and 27 degrees?! Great. I debated texting my buddy Sokphal to see if she still Continue Reading …

Track Tuesday & Triangle Area Blogger Wine Tasting Meetup!

Good morning, friends! I made it back to the track yesterday morning for a great workout — Tobacco Road Half Marathon training continues! I can’t believe the race is only a few weeks away. I convinced Elle to join me for the early morning workout. We were pleased to see that the sun was already up to join us when we arrived! Continue Reading …

A Double Workout: Track Training & Walleyball!

Good morning, friends! Yesterday’s workout was in two parts. I had an intramural walleyball game at 5:45, so I decided that instead of getting up to run before class, I would combine my workouts and do a track workout in the evening before walleyball. Efficiency AND a chance to sleep in? I’m sold. I arrived at the track around 5:15, so I only Continue Reading …

Dear Sunshine

Dear Sunshine, I’m so glad we’re morning workout buddies again. Love, Anne Good morning! Can we just talk for a second about how amazing that whole clock change thing is? I’m back in Chapel Hill and met my friend Genna for our usual Tuesday a.m. track workout this morning — and it was so gloriously bright and sunshine-y when we Continue Reading …

Track Tuesday & Dressing for Winter Running

Good morning! I hit the track this morning for my usual early Tuesday a.m. track workout! Brrr it was a cold one again this morning — NC is weird because it gets just as cold (if not colder) than areas farther north overnight, but then gets a lot warmer during the day. It was 35 this morning when I met up with Elle — and it’s supposed to Continue Reading …

My New Favorite Dinner & Track Tuesdays

Good morning! I have a new favorite dinner — remember how I made Fresh Thai Summer Rolls over the weekend with my friend Ashley? I had a TON of leftovers so I made it into a yummy noodle dish last night. In the mix was leftover: rice noodles, spicy Thai peanut sauce (homemade and AMAZING — recipe at the end of the Fresh Thai Summer Rolls Continue Reading …

The Return of Track Workouts & How to Set Mile Splits on a Garmin 305

Good morning! Training for my 3rd half marathon (Vegas Rock and Roll!) has officially begun! Early yesterday morning, I met my new friend Genna (remember her?) for a speed workout at the UNC track. I LOVE that I have found another person that is on board for meeting me so early for workouts. Speed workouts alone = not awesome. I think we’re Continue Reading …
