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 …

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 …
