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 …

Reunited with the UNC Track

Good morning! I hope your weekends have been fun! Yesterday morning, Matt, my friend Lauren, and I headed over to UNC in the morning for a little workout action! Matt and Lauren hit up the pickup soccer game (always happening on weekend mornings at the UNC fields): And I was reunited with the UNC track! I haven’t been out here since training Continue Reading …

An Endurance Speed Workout & the Long Run Fuel Debate

Yesterday marked the return of the need for speed! Since our half marathon is looming (3 and a half weeks and counting!), we decided to mix up the sprinting a bit this week and do a more long distance endurance sort of speed workout. Instead of doing a series of 400’s at a 6:30 pace (more details in this post), my friend Jillian proposed Continue Reading …

Walleyball is my new favorite sport

First things first: last night was absolutely hilarious. My grad school friends and I have decided to act like we’re undergrads and have signed up for a number of intramural sports, including the epic Walleyball. Hahaha. What’s Walleyball, you ask? Well, apparently it’s volleyball, but in a racquetball court so you can use the walls! Continue Reading …

A Non-Winter Breakfast & UNC Track Workout

Gooooood morning! So, it’s randomly 70 degrees and super humid this morning in North Carolina. Wtf?! I feel like I’m in Florida! Weirdest winter ever. It was cold yesterday! I decided the only way to deal with this was to have a smoothie for breakfast :) I made my favorite — a green Banana & Spinach smoothie! Sounds gross, is Continue Reading …

Yesterday marked the second week of Tuesday morning half marathon training speed workouts! As you all know, my friends and I are training for the National Half Marathon in D.C. in March. (check out the UNC women’s field hockey team doing sprints behind us!)  It was FREEZING and pitch black yesterday morning when I met my friend Jillian Continue Reading …
