…And Take Names.


Hello and Happy day to you!

Every few months I feel like I write one of these posts…

The post where I realize I am slacking (no offense Fallon!), decide to pick myself up by the bootstraps and get my sh*t together.

Also known as this post, this post, this post and this post.

The post where I decide to start kicking a$$ and taking names.

This post is a little different though.

Foodie Friday: The Lazy Runner Edition


Hello and happy day to you!

Today’s edition of “Foodie Friday” is going to be a little bit different.

Don’t freak out.

Instead of sharing a recipe that I like, I have a few quick and easy meal suggestions for you.

This post was inspired by a conversation I had with one of my best friends a few weeks ago.

She was complaining commenting on how she never has time to cook dinner because she is so busy working,

taking care of her family,

cleaning the house,

and of course,

working out.

And I, being the absolute laziest meal-prepper on the planet…

gave her a few suggestions that I use to make my meal prep Monday as short and sweet as possible.

I thought it would be a great idea to share those tips with you…

So here we goooooo!

Why Do YOU Run?


https://www.eyecarespecialties.com/ecs/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/ECS_run_newsfeed_14.jpg

Hello and Happy day to you!

Last week I challenged you to share with me the reasons why you do this crazy thing called running.

The response that I received was overwhelmingly awesome!

It was so cool to read everyone’s reasons, because they are all so different.

Looking for some motivation?

Read the stories below and I bet one of them will light a fire under your caboose.

I know it has for me!

So let’s get to it…

I think I can, I think I can…


Hello and Happy day to you!

As many of you know, I just (praise the Lord!) recovered from a minor hamstring injury that forced me to pull out of Rock n’ Roll San Diego.

Boo!

But! I am back running and haven’t had any problems with my hamstring since.

WOO WHOO!

I do, however, feel as though I have lost some fitness.

Or maybe it is in my head?

Who knows.

I am feeling a little off this week. Continue reading

Things That (As A Runner) I Can’t Stand!


Hello and Happy day to you!

bathroom

As a runner, there are certain things that really piss me off!

I am sure most people don’t understand, but maybe you (being a fellow runner) will agree with me…

1. When some moron sprints ahead and then stops in front of me in the middle of a race.

Pull your head out of your ass, man! I mean come on! It’s called peripheral vision, use it and check out your surroundings before you come to a complete freakin’ stop. I understand that you are tired, but really? Continue reading

They are quickly becoming one of my favorite pairs of shorts.

Hello and Happy Monday!

 

I am back from my fantastic vacation in San Diego.

I had such a great time that I really didn’t want to come back.

 

But, alas… I had to.

 

As you can see from the picture above…

 

We are going to talk about chafing today.

 

Chafing is my arch nemesis.

 

About a month ago, I was complaining on Instagram (if you don’t you should)…that my running shirts were making me chafe on my chest.

Weird, I know.

I proposed to ProCompression on Twitter so you could win a pair of compression socks!


I admit it. I did it.

I proposed to ProCompression on Twitter.

socks
Why would I do such an ridiculous thing?

Because I LOVE ProCompression socks that much. If I had 7 pairs, I would probably wear them every day.

That is true love right there, my friends. Continue reading

Bestowed Box Product Review


I found out about Bestowed through Twitter, as I do most products that I receive to blog about, and I contacted them because I think Nutrition boxes are so cool.

I have a tendency to eat the same thing, every singe day (so not kidding on this one), mainly because I am single and too lazy to cook something extravagant.

Nutrition boxes, like Bestowed have been a game changer in my boring life!

Before I get into my review, I need to mention that they did not pay me to do a review, but did provide me with free product to sample. Continue reading
