What I’m Loving This Month: June 2016 – Celebrating Progress

Three months ago tonight, I found myself hobbling to a cab in a ball gown and pair of Yves Saint Laurent platform pumps uttering the words: I think I broke my foot. A few hours later, it was confirmed, I was in increasing amounts of pain, and figured I'd be off my foot for a …

Nike Run Club+ LunarEpic Launch Party & LunarEpic Review

A few weeks ago I posted about being invited to participate in a group run and launch party with Nike Run Club+ here in Chicago.     When the day arrived, I was less excited, because it was cold (around 25 degrees), windy (gusts of over 30 mph), and snowing. Those are not ideal running conditions! …

Last fall I signed up to do a cross-training run one evening with Philadelphia Runner, Be Well Philly, and Unite Fitness. A huge group of runners literally ran through the streets of Philadelphia stopping at different tourist attractions to do push-ups, squats, burpees, and walking lunges. It was fantastic. I sweat a ton, and made …

So you want to go running in the snow… What I Wore Wednesday

I had lots of questions about my outfit and various tools that kept me warm and dry although I ran for almost 3 hours in the snow on Sunday. Thankfully, I'd planned well, so while I became miserable, it wasn't because my gear didn't stand up to the challenge. While there are probably dozens of …
