Bumbleride Stroller

In the spirit of being transparent, I want to begin by sharing that I was provided the Bumbleride IRONMAN Stroller and paid for this. BUT I only represent brands I believe in, and have turned down many many other brands in the past, even when they have offered payment because I do not feel good…

Runners Sunglasses

When I moved to the US in 2008, I didn’t really use sunglasses. I had a pair, for those special occasions where I was going to the beach or doing something I felt I needed to look stylish (ha, oh do I laugh at 18 year old me), but other than that, I didn’t them.…

The Heart of a Brand: Tracksmith

A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by a website which publishes stories about podcasters. Timber Media mostly focuses on how popular podcasts grew their audiences, and it got me thinking about the early days of Running For Real, and beyond that, my days at RunnersConnect. As much as I would love to say to…

Trouble Sleeping? This is What Helped Me Through Insomnia

UPDATE: I wrote this a few months ago, but I still feel the advice is helpful (maybe even more so). I would recommend adding to stay away from the news, twitter, or anything that talks about coronavirus after about 7pm. It makes a big difference! — There is a reason sleep deprivation is a form…

Finding Balance Within Your Nutrition

Let me start with something in your face. You probably won’t like this, but unfortunately, this is the truth: There is no quick fix. There is no way to cheat the system (at least not long term), and the word balance, is just setting us up for all kinds of failures. So why would I…

How To Learn To Love Your Body

Learn to love your body. Sounds so simple, but we all know, it’s not. It should be something we do automatically. Deep down we know how much our body does for us. We know it helps us to breathe and stay alive, carry children in our arms, give and receive hugs that can mean the…

Signs You Are Pushing Your Body Too Far

We live in a go go go world. The busier you are, the better. Who cares if you feel tired, that’s life, get on with it. It feels like everyone around you is cramming more into their morning than you get done in a day, so why are you complaining? Even if you know deep…

Be Confident For Your Next Race

When you are coming out of the deep heavy training, race day is just a few weeks away, you NEED your mind to help you, to tell you it IS possible and you CAN do this mammoth task ahead. Instead, this is a time when our heads can mess with us. Doubt, fear, and paranoia…

AfterShokz Review and Thoughts

Boston Marathon is less than a month away and it is funny to think about training for a marathon in this different place that I am in. Marathons used to be these GRAND events, that I would tailor my life around for months prior. I would place immense pressure on the workout days, feeling that…

Stretching VS. Foam Rolling: Is There an Ideal Pre-exercise Warm-up?

Many of you LOVED my interview with the absolutely wonderful Tom Michaud. He always leaves me speechless with his knowledge and research on topics that runners are just so confused about. Tom kindly offered to write up articles on a monthly basis to give us the summary of what he has found on topics that…

Let’s Celebrate The Women Who Inspire

International Women’s Day. A day that celebrates women making changes and bringing our rights closer to where they should be. For me, International Women’s Day is a day to think about those women who have inspired me. Of course, I know there are many, many women who have sacrificed, fought, relentlessly pursued fair treatment for…

Baby Led Weaning (Baby Led Feeding)

Quite a few people have asked me lately about the way we started Bailey on solid foods, as knowing when you can start giving your baby solid food (and what that even means), along with which baby foods to start with can be really confusing. I wanted to create this baby solid food guide to…
Finding gifts for new moms that are not for baby can be difficult, but here are some ideas, some under $20 to treat your new mama a present for the holidays.

What Are You Doing For Others This Holiday Season?

I love this time of year. I, a Christmas NUT who loves to celebrate the holidays, sing Christmas songs, and purchase everything in cute shapes, (I even got myself a pair of these Adidas How We Do Tights in a more festive color when I would always go for black tights!), but what I love…
