GOT TEN MINUTES?

#FitnessFriday

GOOD NEWS!!! IT REALLY DOESN’T TAKE MUCH TO GET FIT FOR SUMMER! If YOU HAVE TEN MINUTES, I’VE GOT YOU COVERED! I struggle daily with prioritizing and decision-making for family, business, and personal activities. Even for ME, exercise is often the item that gets put on the back burner! It’s so hard to dedicate a daily … Read More

LOWER BODY BAND TRAINING, PART ONE

#FitnessFriday

IT’S OFFICIAL! My marathon racing and pacing season are over, and I’m rejoicing that I can pick up my “pace” with strength training again. These warmer summer months are an ideal time to transition and to focus on improve strength and muscle tone as well as to increase your pace with faster, shorter runs. These two … Read More

RUNNING BOSTON

#TransformationTuesday

For a runner, there really is no other feeling in the world than running a World Class Marathon, and one of the six Marathon Majors is the granddaddy of them all, the Boston Marathon. My second Boston run in 2012 handed me my “PW” or Personal Worst, when the temperatures rose to 90 degrees at … Read More

BOSTON STRONG!

#MotivationalMonday

When I’m pacing a marathon, I choose a “focus” point for each mile. Around mile 19, with only 7 miles remaining, I encourage runners to focus on what they were doing just 7 YEARS prior to the race.

DON’T THROW OUT THE PLANT!

This is important when you’re trying to get healthy, gain energy, and lose weight, because all of the aforementioned create ONE … Read More

SWEET POTATO BROWNIES

#WednesdaysWeCook, Dessert Recipes, Recipes

I LOVE BROWNIES! I’m not going to lie…In my “previous life” there was really nothing better than a large Diet Coke and brownies. I recall many a Fourth of July picnic that consisted of NO real food…only my “Dream Team” of chocolate goodness and sugar free fizz. But then I got smart and realized my … Read More

SORT TO SAVE YOUR LIFE!

#MotivationalMonday

If you’re like me, you own way too many running shoes and too many “things” in general. Intuitively, we know this isn’t a smart move for many reasons, yet we cannot seem to help ourselves, right? CASE IN POINT: take a look at my closet! I actually own more running and athletic shoes than fashion … Read More
