Second Quarter Fitness and Running Haul

Second Quarter Fitness & Running Haul!

Earlier this year, I thought it’d be fun to start doing quarterly fitness and running haul blog posts and videos! I had some great things to share in my First Quarter haul blog post, and video on YouTube, but since my new doctor didn’t cleared me to run until June 12th, I didn’t think there’d be enough for a second quarter haul.

Yeah. Not true. Turns out, I bought even more. Lord help me for the third and fourth quarter!

So here you go, the fitness and running goodies I have received from April to June. Please be sure to let me know what you got in the comments below! [click to continue…]

Summer Running Tips | Friday Five 2.0

Tips for Running in the Summer!

Ah, summer, sweet, sweet summer, bring on the lazy days … after our runs, of course! And now that my injury is FINALLY healed, I’m even more excited about doing lots of awesome summer runs for Dopey training.

Of course, summer running, can be a blast … but if you’re not careful, it can kick you in the … ahem.

2017 Broad Street 10 Miler from a Cheerer's Perspective

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I’ve already chatted about the 5 Reasons why I loved the 2017 Broad Street 10 Miler in Philadelphia last month, but it’s taken me a while to put together my video recap. (Keeping up with content has been quite a challenge lately … I still have bonus Princess Half material to do something with!)

Anyway, if you’ve ever been curious about what a race looks like before the start and with the leading wheelchair athlete and runners, here you go! I had an absolute blast cheering, but next year? I’m running this bad boy once again. The weather will be amazing, I will be healthy, and it will be awesome. Which reminds me of another thing I need to write about very, very soon: [click to continue…]
