The Rundown – Hot Mess
Those two words pretty much sum up how I feel after the Thanksgiving holiday — a hot mess. I have a holiday hangover, only a few short weeks to get all the shopping, wrapping, photo card, giving and party planning done and the boys had half days for what seemed like an eternity. It is […]

How To Become a Morning Runner

Suzy Favor Hamilton: The Double Life of an Olympian and Escort -R4R 036
If I had to choose the person who I feel has been the most real, most honest and vulnerable of any of my guests, it would be Suzy hands down. She is a three-time Olympian who has been diagnosed with ADHD, Bi-Polar, Anxiety, and OCD. I admire her for being so brave for sharing all […]

Favorite Marathon + Half Marathon Workouts #RunItWednesday
For the sake of SEO I guess I’m ok with using the word “favorite” to describe my pick for this week’s Run It Wednesday topic. However, saying this marathon workout is my favorite is kind of like saying having a c-section was my favorite way to have my kids. In both instances, the outcome was […]
