Chelsea Collective: Where Fitness + Fashion Come Together

Chelsea Collective Ross Park Mall Lorna Jane Spiritual Gangster I Cherie Runs This

This post is sponsored by Vocalpoint and Chelsea Collective. All opinions are my own. When I heard the good word that I was going to have the opportunity to attend an invitation-only event before the opening of a brand new fitness and fashion store, I just about went nuts. I really did go nuts when …

13.1 Reasons Why The Pittsburgh Half Marathon is My Favorite

13.1 Reasons Why the Pittsburgh Half Marathon is My Favorite

Two weeks ago today, I ran my second Pittsburgh Half Marathon. Now, it didn’t take running it a second time to realize that it could very well be my favorite, but it did definitely cement it as such. It also didn’t take two weeks to come up with 13.1 reasons; I knew those during the race. Heck, …

St. Patrick’s Day Gifts for Runners

Gifts for runners for St. Patrick’s Day? What? You didn’t know that was a thing? Okay, maybe it’s not a thing. But if we can have “Great Valentine’s Day Gifts for Runners!” or “Christmas Gifts for Runners!” posts floating out there, I surely can add St. Patrick’s Day to the mix. It’s one of my …

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 …

The Mizuno Wave Rider 17: Get Ready for a Runtastic Rungasm!

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Mizuno. It’s official. I’m about to go through another breakup. But this time, it’s with all of my running shoes that don’t begin with “Mi” and end with “zuno.” I own 35 pairs of running shoes (Let’s not discuss my addiction right now, okay?) …

One Happy Little Personal Trainer.

I’m just going to say it–In my wee old opinion, I think I was due for some awesomeness in my life lately. Between dealing with all of the “Hey, guess what, ‘I’m baaaaack, Signed, Depression” stuff taking front and center in my life, it was just time for some rainbows and sunshine. This past weekend, …

What does yoga mean to you? #ShareYourOM for National Yoga Month!

I’ll admit it. It’s been far too long since I’ve gotten my body into the Downward Dog, Warrior, Rabbit or Headstand Poses. Okay, not the Headstand–who am I kidding about that one? I think about all of this from time to time while I’m at the gym. I’m there, squatting, dead lifting, benching, curling and …

Bikini Progress Pics & a New Tattoo!

Hello Friends. I do believe I owe you a post! This is the one I should have written on the first day of Summer, but thanks to a cray cray couple of weeks in my personal/work life, I was in no shape for a big debut. After the three weeks settled down and I buckled …

I Got 100 Problems Because Now a Bikini Is One.

This post is late. Along with everything else in my life the past three weeks. The quick version: Work life. June is normally a rough mental month for me anyway with the anniversary of my mother’s death, but work life and things related to it that were out of my control, took me to a …

Race Recap: Running of the Bulls 8K, crying at a race AGAIN, and coming full circle.

“And when all this is through, I’m planning on coming back better, stronger and faster than ever and taking the test in a few months.” Quick–who said that? That’s right–me! I’m testing you CRT readers that have been with me since way back. WAY back. It came from this post. And that picture came from …
