2017 Great Lakes Bird Camp (WI) Recap

HELLO!! I took almost one year off from blogging (my last blog post was a recap from Bird Camp last year). I’ll go into this more in a future post, but I’m in a much different place these days when it comes to my running, diet and overall health, so I’ve decided to start blogging… Continue reading 2017 Great Lakes Bird Camp (WI) Recap

Recap: Fall Great Lakes Bird Camp (AKA the greatest weekend ever)

Man, I’m coming down off of my bird camp high and it’s not pretty. So I stayed up late last night to write this and relive #allthememories. Sorry in advance that this is so long: Friday I rushed around all morning finishing up some last minute work, dropping off the little guy at daycare and… Continue reading Recap: Fall Great Lakes Bird Camp (AKA the greatest weekend ever)

Race Recap: 2014 Building Strength 5k

This past Saturday, I ran the Building Strength 5k for the third year in a row. My recaps from 2013 and 2012 are here and here. The race benefits South Metro Human Services. The funds supported South Metro’s programs that benefit their clients (people who have mental illnesses or chemical dependencies). It was warm at… Continue reading Race Recap: 2014 Building Strength 5k

Race Recap: 2014 Blubber Run + Flock Meetup

This past Saturday, J and I ran the Blubber Run, the inaugural 5k that’s a part of the Stevens Point Brewery’s Pointoberfest. I had no plan going into this — all I could think about was that the day I decided to stray from my Couch to 5k app and run a straight .5 miles on… Continue reading Race Recap: 2014 Blubber Run + Flock Meetup

FAB Fitness: Cabin Workouts

After a minor setback (more about that, later), my return to running has been going really well. I’m still doing the Couch to 5K program since I’m terrified about doing too much, too soon. I looked at my calendar the other day and realized that my first postpartum race is less than 2.5 weeks away!… Continue reading FAB Fitness: Cabin Workouts

2013 Top Ten Gifts for Runners

Since my post from last year is still one of my highest viewed posts ever, I decided to do another list this year. (and yes, I know you’re probably so sick of seeing gift guides.) In no particular order: 1.       Garmin (it’s making the list again this year): I have the Forerunner 10. 2.       Nuun is a great stocking… Continue reading 2013 Top Ten Gifts for Runners

Fun Run Recap: Girls on the Run Twin Cities 5K

I had been crossing my fingers for no rain so I was thrilled to wake up to dry skies and a zero percent chance of precipitation for the next few hours. For my outfit, I settled on capris, my Oiselle singlet and arm warmers and a headband. After a Picky Bar and some coffee, I… Continue reading Fun Run Recap: Girls on the Run Twin Cities 5K
