Disclaimer:  This post contains affiliate links…   It’s that time of year when trying to figure out what to give your favorite runner or active family member can leave you frazzled. Don’t worry, you’re not alone, and in the spirit of the season, I wrote a little song about why it’s easier to shop online… […]

Gift Ideas For Runners; Or Treats For Yourself

Let’s face it, Christmas shopping can be a drag when searching for the perfect gift for even the most special person on our list; and it can be even more difficult to come up with wish list ideas for ourselves. With this in mind, I’ve put together a list of gift ideas for runners, complete with links […]

How Blogging And Social Media Have Made Me A Better Dressed Runner

One day several years ago, my BRF decided it was time she sat me down for a running clothes intervention.  She gently introduced the tender topic by giving me a new pair of running shorts and a top.  Next she implored that I throw away the dingy white top, stretched out gray sports bra, and […]

Oh The Irony Of It…

Back in the fall, our local meteorologists were predicting a snowier than normal winter for us – something about El Niño, La Niña, El Snowman, or something like that. Anyway, Bill and I talked about getting a treadmill for our home gym so we wouldn’t have to miss any of our winter runs.  I stopped […]

Possibly The Best New Piece Of Running Gear, EVER!

My friend Erin just added the most amazing piece of equipment to her running gear collection, a selfie stick…  Yes, I said it, a selfie stick… complete with a Bluetooth remote control.

Running Safely and Avocado Safety

As if I didn’t already have enough reason to love Road ID since they gave me two $35 e-coupons to give away on my blog (I still have one saved for another lucky reader), my Cruiser friend Katie just told me about this new iPhone app! According to the founder of Road ID, as one […]

It’s A Runner Thing

We’re a quirky bunch, we runners…  We do odd little things and don’t think twice about it, yet our non-running friends think we’re nuts.  When I tell my friends something about a one of my runs and they don’t understand, I say, “Never mind, it’s a runner thing.”  So buckle your seat belts, sit back, […]

New Running Shoes = Happy Runner

I stopped by my favorite local running store today to pick up new shoes.  I was fitted in Asics before my first marathon, and I’ve worn them ever since.  My last several pairs have been gray or black, so I may be disappointed with how quickly these get dirty; and how big they make my […]
