Hey, hey! Happy Friday, friends! I’m so glad that the weekend is just about here! We’re celebrating Mal’s birthday this weekend, and I cannot wait. I love birthdays so much! Well, ok, I’m just meh about my own, but I love celebrating other people’s birthdays! 🙂 So, recently, I’m on the hunt for the perfect protein oatmeal combo that I can make in the microwave. I’m coming close to an awesome recipe, but I haven’t nailed it…

Good morning! Runner’s World recently reached out to me about their first-ever list of the “Best Packaged Foods for Runners.” And, of course, in a perfect world, we’d all buy the freshest food available, but we all depend on packaged foods, too, for quick, on-the-go options. Being an athlete and runner myself, I know that finding a healthy choice with a short prep-time is super important. Runner’s World selected an expert panel of registered dietitians to…

Good morning! Thank you for all of your wonderful comments and suggestions on my post yesterday. I spent the majority of last night pouring over them and making adjustments to our baby registry, so now I am feeling really good about things. You guys had so many great recommendations! Thanks, again! I’m lucky to have such awesome readers! So, I had a nice little Tuesday. I cashed in my Valentine’s Day gift certificate from Mal…

Hi, friends! Here is my first race recap! On Saturday morning, we all woke up bright and early and ready to run! Thank goodness, the hotel had complimentary coffee! Here we are waiting for the shuffle bus that Runner’s World provided from the hotel to the start line, which was about 20 minutes away. FYI: We stayed at the Courtyard Bethlehem. Both the 5K and 10K races were held on Saturday morning. The 5K started…

Helloooo from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania! I’m having a blast so far and the Runner’s World Festival & Half hasn’t even officially started yet! After a quick flight from Boston, I arrived safe and sound at the Philadelphia airport where I met Monica, Sarah, Brittany, and Janae, who I was especially excited to meet in person for the very first time. She’s as sweet and friendly as I expected! The five of us hopped in van and,…

I can’t believe the Runner’s World Half & Festival is THIS weekend. Whoa. It really snuck up on me. I feel like I had weeks and weeks to train for it, but now it’s just days away. Yikes. Man, I hope I’m ready for the Hat Trick. I haven’t run that many miles in years. If you’re unfamiliar with the Runner’s World Hat Trick, it’s a 5K and 10K on Saturday and a half marathon…

Good morning! Happy Thursday! You guys seemed to enjoy my first Photo Dump post, so here’s another one! I also need to delete some photos from my iPhone (so I can upgrade to iOS7), so this post has a dual purpose! Haha! An antique gas pump. I snapped this pic at Harbes on my way to the Hamptons. I just loved the way it looked, especially the colors. Ancho-Hibiscus Sparkling Sangria. I enjoyed this wonderful…

Hi, friends! My day started bright and early with a knock on my hotel room door from Monica, who arrived on a red-eye flight from California just 30 minutes earlier. I thought she might want to sleep after a long cross country flight, but she rallied for an early morning run. Monica said running helps her get back on schedule, so we put on our running gear and headed out for a run. Workout We…

Good morning! Happy Election Day! As soon as I finish this blog post, I’m heading out to get my vote on. I hope you plan to vote today, too. Maybe this pug will help you decide! Breakfast Yesterday morning’s breakfast was a Sweet Breakfast Scramble with a massive scoop of Teddie peanut butter. I went overboard with the canned pumpkin, so this batch is a little watery. For a less watery Sweet Breakfast Scramble, just…

Good morning! Happy Friday!! So, is it too early to start thinking about my race calendar for next year? Maybe? Well, I’m a planner, and I just can’t help myself sometimes, so I’m already setting the wheels in motion. The first race on my calendar for 2013 is the Rock ”˜N’ Roll New Orleans Half Marathon! Go big or go home! I’m running this one with my friends Monica and Chandra. The three of us…

After a late night celebrating Jen and Mike’s wedding, Mal and I slept in on Sunday. We woke up to a gray, rainy morning and no iced coffee. Oh, the horror! For me, I could have easily made a batch of cold Dandy Blend, but Mal didn’t want to wait for a hot pot of coffee to cool down, so we took a ride with Murphy to Starbucks. Muddy pug feet… oops! At Starbucks, I…

Hi, friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful Hump Day! Workout After breakfast, I got on my Summer Run Streak on and ran 2 miles, which was from my front door to the end of the street and back again. It was short and sweet, and I listened to Pandora on my iPhone and zoned out. I love runs like this because they totally clear my mind. Speaking of running and iPhones, I use mine to…

Hello, hello! After breakfast, I planned to go for a run, but I just wasn’t feeling it. I felt lazy and unmotivated, so I threw on my new Reach the Beach tech shirt with the hope of it psyching me up. (New workout gear is typically instant exercise motivation for me.) Even though I was dressed in my workout gear, I still struggled to get started. It rained overnight, so the morning was dreary and…

Last night while reading in bed, I came across a piece in this month’s Runner’s World about “All Too Common Mistakes” that runners make on race day. It definitely hit home, especially since I forgot to set my Timex watch before the start of the 10K yesterday and fiddled around with it for the first few minutes of the race. It was such a rookie move””and I’ve actually made the same mistake in the past, too!…

Another interesting presentation that I heard at the Dole Healthy Lifestyles Blogger Summit last week was given by Dr. David Nieman, Director of Human Performance Labs at Appalachian State University, about Immunonutrition Support for Athletes. Immunonutrition? Say what?!? Dr. Nieman’s presentation was very research-heavy and somewhat over my head, but his findings with regard to athletes, immunity, and recovery were quite fascinating. He explained that while 45 minutes of moderate daily exercise stimulates the immune…
