Rock & Roll While You Run

I recently returned from Nashville where I witnessed the planned mayhem of the 10th annual Country Music Marathon & 1/2 Marathon. CMM is one event in the series of Rock & Roll running events, aptly named due to the numerous live bands throughout the race course. While some races, such as the Boston Marathon, are […]

Pssst…Wanna Win a Surf Safari?

I’m a big believer in luck, and as such I’m convinced that I have a great chance to win the sweepstakes I recently entered. But in case my name is not drawn, I hope one of you will be the lucky winner! Ever since I first heard about Las Olas and their surf safaris for […]

Keeping Pace with Magda

I recently had the pleasure of catching up with US Olympic Marathoner Magdalena Lewy Boulet. You may remember Magda from the months leading up to the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Hers was the Cinderella story of the 2008 Olympic Team selection. Having placed 5th in the 2004 Olympic Team Trials, Magda was dead-set on representing […]

Give Bandages

You know the cute bandages you buy for your kids, with cartoon characters like Dora the Explorer, Curious George or Hello Kitty? Well no need to envy your children – now you can dress your own owies with custom bandages which not only look cool, but which promote awareness of the ongoing need for blood […]

Just Keep Moving!

On occasion, I enjoy posting quotes from real women runners. Whether barely a beginner, an experienced elite, or any level in between, all of us gals are bound together by the common themes of our running experience. I had always wanted to run but was never able due to poor health – until medicine improved […]

For example, if you have a running team or club, you can create your […]

Movin’ Moms

A friend of mine who is a new mother recently started her own franchise of Stroller Strides, a nationwide fitness program designed for moms and their babies. As a fitness instructor prior to giving birth, her new business is a natural extension of her pre-baby life. Her motivation to get back in shape while inspiring […]

Take Control

Stress doesn’t have to wreak havoc on your life. Make it work for you. Tight deadlines, unpaid bills, angry coworkers.  In today’s 24/7, go-go-go world, stress is unavoidable – but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. “The body’s stress hormones, particularly cortisol, give us the power to get up and go in the morning,” says […]

Real Women of Running – Running to Improve

On occasion, I enjoy posting quotes from real women runners. Whether barely a beginner, an experienced elite, or any level in between, all of us gals are bound together by the common themes of our running experience.   Sometimes I feel that I do not think while I am running. I am sort of in […]

Beantown on the Horizon

For most people, April 1st is a time to brush off the practical jokes and silly humor. For more than 20,000 runners, however, the advent of April signals the build-up of nerves in anticipation of the annual Boston Marathon. Whether you’re among the elite group of athletes qualified for Boston, or you’re on hand to […]
