Hi, guys! I had such a great time at the Brooks Innovation Summit last weekend in Seattle. What a cool company! Seriously!! I’m so proud to be a part of their run ambassadors! Brooks is all about running. I mean, ALL they do is run – unlike a lot of other fitness companies on the market, who embody a number of different sports and activities. And, for that reason, Brooks has invested a lot of time…

Here’s a 5K Training Plan to Celebrate Global Running Day! I don’t know about you, but my love for running always seems to increase when the snow melts and the warm weather arrives. With Global Running Day (aka National Running Day) not too far away, I wanted to make sure I was fully prepared for this fun running holiday. Sure, I’ve run all winter long, but only on the treadmill. I’ve dominated Orangetheory-style workouts, but…

Hi, friends! Happy Hump Day! Does this week feel like the LONGEST week ever? My gosh, it’s crawlingggg by for me. I actually woke up thinking it was Thursday, so it was definitely a sad realization when it was only Wednesday. Whomp whomp. Anyway… I wanted to share some meals from the week so far as well as a pair of sneakers that I’m loving lately. And, for your viewing pleasure, here’s a photo of…

Hi, guys! Happy Sunday! I’m kicking off the week with the next edition of my Instagram Live series. If you missed the video on Thursday/Friday, here it is for your viewing pleasure! 🙂 In this episode, I chat about: OPEX – why I started and how’s it going Tips for getting more protein in you diet When my next book is coming out Why I’m not doing Orangetheory anymore My favorite sports bras (Juno +…

Hi, friends! I get soooo many questions about which sneakers I wear for which kinds of workouts, so I thought it would be helpful to put my all-time favorites in one blog post for you guys!  As you’ve seen on CNC over the years, I like to keep things fresh (and fun!) when it comes to my workouts. Recently, I love switching between running, CrossFit, and Orangetheory workouts, and I’ve learned that it’s important to…

Heyyyy, guys! I’m taking over the Brooks Women’s Instagram Stories (@brookswomen) all day TOMORROW, Wednesday, October 18th. Mark your calendars! Follow along to see my favorite running workout of the moment and how I fuel for it! Wearing: Brooks Ghost Crop (they don’t show sweat AT ALL) // Levitate  

Hi, guys! I ran my 5th Falmouth Road Race yesterday, and it was a total blast! I know I’ve said this in previous blog posts, but the Falmouth Road Race is truly the best race ever. The course is absolutely gorgeous, it’s well-organized, and the crowd can’t be beat – it’s basically like running through a party for the entire 7 miles! If you’re a runner, I highly recommend that you put this race on your…

Hi, guys! Happy, happy, HAPPY almost Friday to you! (I’m publishing this baby a little early this week.) We have quite the fun-filled weekend planned, and I can’t wait for it to get started! On Saturday, we’re planning to get our sweat on at CrossFit followed by some playtime at Hanover Day. We had such a fun time last year, and Designed to Fit Nutrition is actually one of the event’s gold sponsors, so I don’t…

As someone who enjoys running long distances, I often get questions from friends and family about why I like running so much. Why do you like running? How can you run for so long? Don’t you get bored? My short answer is always something like: “I dunno. I just do. It relaxes me,” which I’m sure makes people think I’m even crazier! Ha! I often elaborate about why I love it so much, but my response is…

Hey, hey! Happy Sunday! I’m kicking off the week with five awesome workouts that I’ve done lately. They’re, for sure, challenging, but a lot of fun, too! Four out of the five are a mix of running and strength movements (some with equipment some without), which, as you probably know, are my favorite way to work out. I really think the combination of running + strength gives you the most bang for your buck! The final workout…

DOWNLOAD THE FREE MARATHON TRAINING PLAN I always wanted to run the Boston Marathon, so when Stonyfield approached me about running it, it was an opportunity that I just couldn’t refuse. I was only 3-months postpartum and running just a few miles at a time– often with lots of walking breaks mixed in– so I really didn’t think I could run 26.2 miles. Obviously, physically, it was going to be a challenge, but, as a brand new…

Hello and happy Sunday, friends!! Ok, so my first week of half marathon training was kind of weird. It was great because I exercised a ton more than I usually do, but I didn’t do all that much running. *sigh* I planned to run on Thursday, but I had way too much work to do, so it just never happened. I figured I could run on Saturday morning, but then Mal wasn’t available, and Qman definitely had some energy to burn, so sitting…

This blog post was originally published on March 2015, but it’s topic that readers frequently contact me about. And with marathon and half marathon season upon us, I thought it would be helpful to share it again. Enjoy!  I get questions all the time from readers about how to best balance CrossFit with running, specifically long distance running, like training for a half or full marathon and, honestly, I never really knew how to reply mostly because…

Today’s the day! My winter half marathon is finally here! And by the time you read this blog post, I will have crossed the finish line after running 13.1 (chilly) miles. I’ll share my recap later this week! Wish me luck! WEEK 7 Sunday: 10 miles Monday: KFIT 28:49 Rx (my abs were sore for dayssssss!) Tuesday: Off Wednesday: CrossFit Used #95 for Squat Clean Thruster + worked my way up to #125 X 3…

Woohoo! It’s officially taper time! My wonderful and amazing friend Monica flew out from California to run my last long run with me. (Now that’s a GREAT friend, right!?) I had 20 miles on my training plan (well, technically, 3:00) and we thought it would be fun to do a race together, so we ran the Duxbury Half Marathon + some miles before the start. Rise ‘n’ shine, it’s running time! Monica and I were already running on the…
