The Little Things

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.…

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…

Running For Real Podcast Series

Today is a very exciting day for me, after months of pushing my pregnant mind and body probably a liiiiittttlee too far, I can finally announce that the Running for Real Podcast Series are now live! What are they? Well, after I had some success with running podcasts, I realized that sometimes people skip episodes…

Strength Training for Runners: Are You Wasting Your Time?

By now, most runners are aware that strength training (resistance training, lifting, “core work”) is going to make it much more likely that you will be able to stay injury free. Most runners also know that following a strength training for runners plan is going to help you run more efficiently, meaning your running technique…

The Ultimate List of Running Rehab Specialists, Experts, Therapists

I often get asked about what running experts I can recommend for injury, running gait assessment, and treatment. You know I have been to UVA Speed Clinic three times, and I made it pretty clear which experts I trust through my mentions of Team Ice Cream, but I know I have friends all over the…

Why Your Best Is Never Good Enough

Now I have had many great guests on the podcast before but the podcast episode with Dr Bhrett McCabe was one of the most eye-opening podcasts I have ever recorded. He said so many things that were so applicable to us all, to every single one of us, regardless of what stage of life we…

Athletic Amenorrhea: How Does Running Affect Your Period?

UPDATE: Since writing this article, I have taken EVERYTHING I learned in my journey to get my period back, and wrote a book on the topic, so you have everything I know about amenorrhea in one place. This book is written for runners who have lost their period, but regardless of what sport you do,…

Why I Recommend Every Runner Uses Inside Tracker

Inside Tracker gives you a score for each marker that you are tested for (magnesium, vitamin D, cortisol ect). That part is pretty standard for any blood test, obviously dependent on what the physician (or whoever is requesting the result) asks for, but inside tracker takes it one step further. They give you a graph…

Inside Tracker and Thinking About the Future

Everyone knows that most elite runners will do absolutely everything they can to be the absolute best they can be. Often that means finding ways that are not morally or ethically correct to get that advantage. With more and more cases about cheating, our sport is headed in a bad direction, and I am sure we have…

Redefining the Word Team- Introducing Team Ice Cream!

You may have noticed that I have been talking a lot recently about my “team”. It got me thinking about the word. For the longest time, I thought I didn’t have a “team”. Of course I am part of the Saucony Hurricanes team, but I very very rarely even see another Hurricane, let alone interact…

UVA Speed Clinic 2.0- The Reflection

On Wednesday I covered part one of my return to the UVA Speed Clinic, and since then I have been able to get two workouts with Drew in to implement some of the new exercises, and have now had a week to do the ones I need to do up to 3x a day(!) at…

UVA Speed Clinic 2.0- Part One

I don’t even know where to begin with this experience. I feel like I write this a lot with my blog posts, but this time…..I just….my mind is just all over the place, shooting in many directions as I try to absorb as much of it as I can. As I sit writing this in…

Back to UVA Speed Clinic

Happy Friday! I am afraid I do not have anything new and exciting to share with you today as I am currently in Charlottesville, VA. Steve and I decided it was a good time to go back and see how my form compares to the last time I was here, and then see what we…
