I prefer dumbbells to dumbasses _ Cherie Runs This

Golly. I’m being a bad girl with blogging lately, amiright? One, like I said before, now that I work as a Communications Specialist for my day job and I write ALLLLLL day, I’m completely typed-out by the time the weekend hits. And let’s be real, blog posting during the week isn’t happening either.

Pittsburgh Marathon Nutrition

So let’s talk nutrition. I’m pretty sure I should be sharing what I eat while training for the Pittsburgh Marathon Half. Here’s the deal: I won’t tell YOU what to eat.

Group running: I’m a fan now.

The past two Saturdays, I ran with other human beings and I actually enjoyed it. This was a special moment, as y’all know how I most enjoy my running solo because it’s my “me” time. I get lost in my thoughts, rock out to my tunes, and don’t have to worry about slowing anybody down. I …
