What type of runner do I want to be?

As I figure out my fitness plan for the next 3/6 months, I need to ask myself, what type of runner do I want to be? I’m currently at the lowest weight I can recall for years, and I set a PR last weekend just coming off injury. But I love the strength training I’m doing, looking and feeling strong. […]

Boston Qualifying

Yesterday Frida and Queen from RMRG completed their 90 Day Total Body Transformation program. I’ve been following their progress way back since November, and it’s been incredibly inspiring.

Tracking – day 26

First off.. A few folks have expressed quiet concern that my tracking may be a sign of too much of a fixation. I really really appreciate the sentiment.

Healthy Banana Bread?

Remember when this blog used to be about running? Yeah… I have nothing to say about that :-/ Today’s culinary adventure was “healthy banana bread”. As I’ve been trying to buy a lot more fresh fruit, I don’t get to all of it in time so I needed to do something with my over-ripe bananas. I found this clean eating […]
