Do you remember the day you became a runner? I do, like it was yesterday. I can still smell the early morning air and feel the sticky cotton T-shirt clinging to my sweaty back as I hurtled myself to the stop sign at the end of my street, signaling that I had run AN ENTIRE MILE […]
Good morning and Happy Monday! It’s that time once again where we check in with Laura from I’d rather sit on the couch about our weekly goals! It’s actually been two weeks since the last time I posted a Monday Motivator, and that’s because I received some annoying medical news in the days following my last […]
Looky there, it’s Monday again already! And that means it’s time for Monday Motivators – the weekly check-in (and link-up with Laura, who would rather be on the couch) on our fitness goals. Check out the link up and feel free to join in! Foam Roller goal? Met! You may recall that last week’s goals […]
Monday Motivators (on a Tuesday)
My girl Laura over at I’d rather sit on the couch (BTW, the lack of title case is directly from her blog. You may or may not be surprised how much it’s bugging me to leave it that way.) has a new link-up that I’m joining this week – Monday Motivators! I, obviously, was not […]
(Mostly) Wordless Workout Wednesday
Except for the fact that I really have to explain this. Yoga. Totally outside my comfort zone, people! But I have been so very inspired this past month by several of the bloggers I follow on Twitter and Instagram (with a special shout-out to Wendy, who takes the long way home!), who have been posting […]
Weightlifting Wednesday – Dumbbell Exercises for Runners
Like so many important decisions in my life, I have to tell you that I don’t remember the exact moment I decided to film workout videos and post them on YouTube. I vaguely recall having some extra time on my hands – if only I had appreciated it at the time! – back when I […]
What Exercises Do You Really NEED?
I follow a lot of running and fitness accounts on social media and I’ve noticed that the language of a lot of posts is very… demanding. Specifically where nutrition and cross-training are concerned, there seem to be a lot of titles of articles like, “8 Foods You Should NEVER Eat,” or “The 6 BEST Exercises […]
Is it too late to add a resolution?
Actually, it doesn’t matter what your answer is to that question, because it’s been done. Added! And not a moment too soon. You know how everybody says, “You’re only as old as you feel”? Well, I’ve been feeling about a million years old lately. I’m stiff, I’m sore, and my bones feel creaky. And yet, […]
Pull-Ups are Really Hard
And in other breaking news, scientists have recently discovered that water is wet.I don’t know why I thought it would be easy to learn how to do pull-ups. The fact is, I’ve never done a single one in my entire life. Last year, after UltraIronHubs gave me the indoor pull-up bar and assistance band for […]
Update: My YouTube Channel and a 14-Mile Half Marathon!
In my real life – you know, those silly hours I spend doing something other than training. Whatever. – I work in my own business as a personal trainer. It’s pretty much the most awesome job in the world. Mostly I go to people’s houses and kick their asses for an hour. Seriously, can you […]
