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…

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…

8 Podcast Episodes If You Keep Getting Injured

Running injuries are so frustrating. Running injuries can make you feel depressed and alone (read this blog post if you are feeling that way). Running injuries make you feel like you may never run healthy again. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can and will run injury free…if you make some changes.…

Matt Taylor – Tracksmith: Be Successful By Being Yourself – R4R 188

You went out for another run this morning. It’s habitual, religious almost. Running is more than exercise to you. You often crave it (though sometimes you curse it). It can be difficult to explain to a non-runner how you feel—watching the sun peak over the horizon, listening to your steady breath or footfalls, inhaling the…

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…

Amanda Brooks: YOU are a Real Runner -R4R 178

At what point did you consider yourself to be a runner? Odds are, you were a runner long before you felt comfortable saying it out loud. Maybe it wasn’t until after your first 5K, your tenth 5K, or even your first marathon. Perhaps you still don’t call yourself a runner, or when you do, you…

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…

Alex Hutchinson: How Much Is Too Much Innovation? -R4R 173

If you live in a developed country, you likely enjoy the benefits of being able to rely on government systems that protect you. You can walk outside and feel safe in your neighborhood, put money in your bank and have faith it will be safeguarded, or voice your opinion and not be punished. You probably…

Beyond Running: Asthma and Breathing Problems with Dr John Dickinson – R4R 149

Breathing and Running You can argue that nothing is more important than learning how to breathe properly when you run. Yet, breathing exercises are often overlooked and shortness of breath is treated by increasing miles or speed. Without proper breathing, runners can suffer from side aches, mental distractions, anxiety, and injuries that are caused from…

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…
