Weekend Warrior: Mind Prep for the Week

To put it in spinning terms…I’ve been on a slow steep climb up a massive mountain at work. There is a specific project that has been a year in the making and we are about to hit the peak and begin the incredibly speedy ride down. My days have been long, and my weeks even […][...]

Making a Runner Out of Him

Today’s post comes courtesy of my husband, someone I am determined to make a runner.  When my wife asked I wanted to review the latest and greatest shoe from Saucony, the Virrata , I was filled with mixed emotions.  I was excited to have the opportunity, but was nervous, because I’m [...]

Sleeping Patterns & Exercise

I have a cut off for exercise. If I haven’t done it by 7:30 pm then it just isn’t going to happen that day.  It just gets too complicated with eating dinner and getting home to shower and all that jazz. Plus I was convinced that if I exercised too close to bedtime (and I […][...]

It’s Nutrition Month!

When I was working on a campaign for a diet company, we tagged March as the month diets die.  February is just disgusting when it comes to weather and  keeping track of what you are putting in your body has just become tedious. So it seems perfect that March is National Nutrition Month. You are [&[...]
