Guys! We’re getting so close to the big day! I did my final long run (10 miles) this morning and then (hopefully) it’s smooth sailing to race day! I’m traveling for work next week, so I’m planning a couple of runs/workouts while I’m away. Next weekend, I’ll probably do a medium-length run with a couple of short runs during the week and then race day is Sunday. Holy cow. It’s coming up fast, and I really can’t decide whether I…

Hey, hey! Happy Sunday to you! Week 2 of my Fall Half Marathon Training was pretty good overall. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to fit in a long run with travel to Santa Barbara, but I did a couple of running workouts, including some speed work, in the hotel gym. Longer runs are definitely a priority next week! SUNDAY: Off MONDAY: 40-30-20-10 Bodyweight Workout at home Monday was a busy day, so I squeezed in this quickie workout during…

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…

Just last week, I shared my advice for balancing CrossFit and running because, like a lot of you, I have a half marathon on my calendar later this fall. Last week, I actually registered for the South Shore Half Marathon. And, of course, once I received my email confirmation, I immediately started to put together my training schedule. But when I started planning out my runs, I realized I wasn’t able to easily fit them all in. I rely…

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…

Disclosure: I was asked to participate in the CocoaVia® Live Your Life with Heart campaign. I was compensated for my time. Hi, guys! My friends who aren’t long-distance runners always ask me how I’m able to run so far for so long. Like a lot of runners though, I started out running only a mile or two at a time. In college, I got into a regular running routine, but I never ran more than 5 or…

Good morning! On Tuesday evening, my sister and I ran the Yankee Homecoming 5K in Newburyport, Massachusetts. It was a gorgeous night (and not too hot) and the location couldn’t have been more perfect. Newburyport is absolutely adorable, and I definitely want to spend more time there soon! The race started and finished at Newburyport High School. Parking was a little tricky, but, luckily, we found a spot on a side street about 5 minutes away….

In honor of Global Running Day today, I wanted to share some of my very favorite high-intensity running workouts to help you celebration this fun running holiday! If you don’t have plans yet to celebrate, the occasion is just days away. Be sure to schedule one of these workout into your day! High-intensity running workouts are my go-to form of exercise when I’m craving a tough, heart-pumping sweat session. I love the constant variation and intensity of these…

Good morning! I recently had the opportunity to interview, Angela Bizzarri, Brooks Beast and sponsored athlete, via email. She has quite the impressive running career, winning three NCAA national championships in Cross Country as well as the NCAA Track national championships in the 5000 meters (outdoor) and 3000 meters (indoor). It was such a neat opportunity to chat with her, and I hope you guys enjoy our Q & A below. Many thanks to Brooks Running for coordinating the interview!…

Good morning! I’ve received quite a few questions about my winter running gear, so here’s a little recap of what I wore on a recent long run. (FYI: It was 21 degrees when I started running and 25 degrees when I finished.) They’re items that I absolutely love and recommend 100%! Brooks Running Women’s Seattle Shell (<– on sale right now!)  The Seattle Shell is a great all-around winter running jacket. It totally protects you from the elements….

Good morning! I have a GREAT workout for you guys. It involves two of my favorite things– dumbbells and running— and it’s guaranteed to challenge you! Dumbbells instantly make a workout more challenging because they require so much more of your stabilizer muscles, which means you’re working even harder. And running… well, running is always tough, especially if you’re giving it your all! Outfit: Brooks Women’s Distance Long Sleeve/Brooks Women’s Streaker Capri/Brooks Women’s Glycerin 13/Bombas Ankle Socks/Oakley Overtime…

Hi, guys! Training for my winter half marathon has officially started! And I have to admit, I’m really enjoying cold weather running. (I know”¦ who am I?) I’m so not a fan of winter, but I really enjoy running in the “chilly” temps. Well, right now I do. We’ve had a fairly mild November and early December, so we’ll see how I feel about winter running come January. Anyway, my training is off to a…

Now that life has slowed down a bit, I’ve had a chance to stop and enjoy the little things in my life. I’ve talked in the past about how the little things are sometimes the big things and how even the smallest gesture can make a huge difference in someone’s day. Being home this week has made me realize this even more, so I wanted to share some of the little things I’ve recently enjoyed!…

Good morning! How’s the week going so far? I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. Gotta love those Monday holidays! My Tuesday started bright and early like it usually does with a “baba,” cuddles, and an iced coffee on the couch with my favorite boy while watching “Mutt and Stuff.” Quinn loves this show. He gets such a kick out of the dogs!   THAT HAIR. I know it’s just about time to cut it, but it’s so…

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. Good morning, friends! Last week, I received a great question from a reader about my experience with diet and exercise, and how they helped me lose weight. Over the years, other people (both CNC readers and real life friends) have asked me this same question, so I figured it was time to finally turn it into a blog post. Here’s the question that I received: Hey Tina, Longtime reader from Minnesota here,…
