Take a Break – and Bike!

I know you love running as much as I do. But sometimes don’t you like to mix it up a bit? Try a change of pace, a break in your routine? Why not pack your bags and head to a three-day cycling camp to learn new skills, experience cross-training at it’s finest and best of […]

Imelda in the House?

Most women I know (myself included) have far too many shoes. And as runners, we’re doubly guilty of Imelda-Marcos-like tendencies. Since paring down our collections is hardly a desirable solution, perhaps the Shoe Wheel can help. The Shoe Wheel, a creation of husband and wife design company Rakku, holds up to 30 pairs of shoes […]

Brooks For Her – Performance Gear with a Purpose

At a time where charitable giving may be threatened by a shaky economy, Brooks Sports has eschewed this uncertainty and stepped up to pledge its support in the fight against breast cancer. With the launch of the Brooks For Her collection of performance running apparel, the company introduces a fitness and fashion savvy line accented […]

Real Women of Running – Run for the View

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 used to run competitively when I was in high school, the 800m and 1500m. Then I didn’t run again […]

Let it Snow!

photo courtesy Nils Nilsen/XTERRA In many parts of the country, it probably feels like winter will never end. And while Spring-dreaming is hard to resist, why not make the most of the cold and try something new while you have the chance? Last year at this time, I entered a snowshoe race. Mind you, I […]

Real Women of Running – Running Through the Why’s

On occasion, I like to post 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. “What do I think about when I run? Man, where do I start! Why turkeys are so ugly? […]

Mmmm…Maple Pecan

If you’re anything like me, you love to eat. In fact, I’ve oftentimes been known to boast a bigger appetite than my date. I’m just not an I’ll-have-the-small-salad-with-the-dressing-on-the-side type of gal. So when my schedule gets hectic and I’m rushing between workouts and work, I want a snack that makes a serious dent in my […]

Real Women of Running: Goodbye Woes & Blows

On occasion, I will post 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. “Running is what makes me tick. It gets me out of bed, it makes me more productive. It […]

Design your Own Race T-shirt

Don’t use a Sharpie to write your name on your shirt before a race or create outfits for your running group. (Who doesn’t like getting cheered on along the course?)  At spreadshirt.com, you can make your own custom T-shirt, choosing everything from the logo design to the fabric. Runners will love the ALOrunning shirt with […]

Fit Fashion Find

I’m a confessed shopaholic. I also love receiving mail – the actual, tactile, page-turning, envelope-tearing, surprise-bearing variety. So whenever I receive a new Athleta catalog I immediately get a little spring in my step. But the latest edition, which arrived last week, set my fitness fashionista heart a-flutter more than ever before. The cover image […]
