Morning, friends! I’m so glad you liked the looks of my Oatmeal Raisin Energy Bites recipe from yesterday! Let me know how you like them if you try them out – either as an afternoon snack or as long run fuel! :) So, you know what’s awesome? Fall has officially arrived as far as the weather is concerned. I had two great morning runs so far Continue Reading …

Good morning, friends! Thank you for the great feedback and discussion on my “How to Eat Intuitively – A Guide to Mindful Eating” post from yesterday. Please keep it coming! :) A couple other things I wanted to mention before I get into today’s post – a few of you commented on my Blog Brulee recap post asking for more information on Continue Reading …

Hitting the Ground Running

Gooooooooooooooood morning! Dragging my butt out of bed this morning to run was well worth it for this: As I always say, waking up early to run sucks big time when that alarm goes off, but just remember how awesome you’ll feel when you’re out there/done. :) That, and having someone to meet really helps!

Return to Track Workouts!

This morning marked the start of operation: get my running speed back! My friend Sokphal and I took our standing Tuesday a.m. run date to the track. We ran the 1.75ish miles to get there, and once there, we decided to do a 2 mile workout. For 8 laps, we jogged the curves and ran hard on the straights. I love this track workout – it’s one I Continue Reading …

8 Miles Before 8 a.m.

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 …

Track Workouts Are Back!

Early yesterday morning before the sun had come up to join us, Elle and I made our return to the UNC track! We’re both training for the Tobacco Road Half Marathon, and it was time to get back on track (literally) with speed workouts! Obligatory sweaty/tired un-cute photo We had a great workout! Here’s what we did: Warm up jog Continue Reading …
