Heatwave and three days off.

I totally walked out of the gym tonight into the 37-degree air and thought – “Woah. Heatwave.” It’s supposed to be 50 degrees tomorrow! I can’t wait! Additionally, this three-day weekend could NOT have come at a better time. Literally, the best timing ever. Workout: So my workout today was a 7mi. recovery run. I slept through my alarm today (or, somehow managed to turn […]

Long run Saturday and a Smoking Coconut.

HAPPY THREE-DAY WEEKEND! It’s been such a great one so far! Workout: This morning I ran my 19-mile long run and the first 10 of it with a big group! The weather was beautiful today, but since we started at 6:00 a.m., we didn’t really get to reap the benefits of the heat. However, the sun was amazing. I am hopeful for an early break […]

All I Can Think About Is The Speedwork.

Guys seriously, I can’t believe it’s 6:30 p.m. right now. I literally remember ALL things that happened before 6:30 a.m., and I’m sure to remember all things that happen this evening, but all things in between are simply a blur right now. So let’s talk about the BEFORE 6:30 a.m. stuff. WORKOUT: SPEED WORK. Crazy, crazy speed work. So proud to have nailed it! RX: […]

Instructions for kicking off Super Bowl Sunday.

MIMOSAS!!!!! I kid, I kid — although strictly speaking, I am not opposed to kicking off any holiday/special event with a mimosa… But really: 1. Run 10 miles at 5 a.m. 2. Take a Body Pump class with Lorie. That’s it. Okay okay — I’ll elaborate! So, strictly speaking, today was supposed to be my “off day” BUT — I have to work this afternoon […]

Return to normalcy and a departure from the norm.

What a title right? Some things are going back to normal, and some are just departing in the best possible way! So first things first — SIGNING DAY! Congratulations to my honey Steven and his fellow coaches for recruiting and signing a TON of new guys to our football program! The #BirdGang looks promising next year and I am so so happy for them. In […]

A Weekly/Monthly Update…

Hey guys, hope everyone’s doing great. It’s been about 10 days since I posted, so I figured it was time to catch everyone up on life in general. A big topic of conversation this month has been “monthly miles.” When you spend enough time around the people I run with, you basically have no choice but to set some sort of crazy goal for yourself […]

Beauty Products

I am beyond obsessed with this hairspray, and for good reason! This spray is pricy but well worth it. I can put my hair in a top-knot, spray it down, and literally wear it through a full day, a full night, and a morning run without it so much as MOVING. Solid. Especially for when you’re feeling a little bit more on the lazy side. […]

A story about Layla.

Good morning to you all — I definitely have a case of the Mondays today and the weather is not doing much for pulling me out of the Monday slump. It’s hot and muggy, but very overcast and drizzly at the same time. Workout: NONE. Off-day, and a much-needed one at that. I am starting to taper for my races (ugh, tapering) so I’m seeing […]
