Aerodaks Review

Today, I’m briefly reviewing Aerodaks, Australian all-weather running briefs, also known as runderwear (the runner-created contraction for running underwear). Disclaimer: I received Aerodaks running briefs to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more...

Sunset Dog Walk

Let’s continue the exercise with dog theme today. At sunset in January (last month), I took Misty for a short beautiful dog walk, a “sniff walk” and recorded it on Meerkat. Enjoy!

Bronzed Middle Ages

Racing through the Middle Ages…I mean my middle ages… First of all, I hope you are not upset at me blending the Bronze and Middle Ages together. I’m not trying to be historically confusing. But I’m middle-aged and well, more about the bronze… Saturday, I ran the Energy 5k as part of the Cornhusker State […]

Happy National Running Day!

Happy National (international?) Running Day! Some of you may be asking “what is that?” Well, it’s a (recently designated) national running holiday (that means you run on the holiday as long as you are not injured) to celebrate the joys of running, to make your run fun. Just running as far as you can. See […]

Vacationing R&R Tips

Writing about some of the hardest things for me: 1) rest & relaxation (R&R) and 2) the importance of getting away, escaping even if it is just for a weekend. Rest and relaxation is very difficult for us type A personalities, we don’t like to slow down and stop unless we are sleep-deprived and/or sick […]

May the 4th be with You!

Howdy pardners! How are you? It’s Lincoln Marathon weekend and I forgot to taper (HATE TAPERING!), so no marathon running for me this weekend. My daughter and I are volunteering to help for several hours so I’ll be on the giving end of water, sports drinks, gels, and “runner snacks” instead of the receiving end […]

What #IfEverybodyRan?

As a runner who wears and loves Mizuno (Wave) running shoes, I’m really excited to hear about the Mizuno research and movement centered around “What if EVERYBODY ran?” There is a Twitter Chat with FitFluential and Mizuno about this tonight at 8pm Central. See link for more. What do YOU think life would be like […]

RUN like a BRAZILIAN!

Forgive me for my excited exuberance for the beautiful country of Brazil but I ran there virtually today for 12.71 miles and had a blast! This is how we Midwesterners beat the polar vortex-we run inside (in warm, tropical locations if possible) when it’s just too cold or impractical to run outside every day. So […]

I LOVE YOU RUNNING

Happy St. Valentine’s Day! It is a wonderful day for loving others and yes, for loving running. When did I discover I truly loved running? Probably when I was in my teens (maybe younger), shortly after a doctor told me in junior high no more football, you’re too thin, you’ll get hurt. I was angry […]

REELING IN THE YEAR

What a wild ride of a year it’s been! The year began on the treadmill and ended on a new, improved treadmill.  It was a year of boosting and crushing challenges and running with abandon.  Here are the highlights for me: in March, I ran wild while marathon training, running a self-supported “Braveheart” full marathon. […]
