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 …

10 Reasons I’ve Been a Sh*tastic Blogger Lately

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. So it’s like 7:45pm on …

What I Eat While Training for the Pittsburgh Marathon Half

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. I’m not a Registered Dietitian or Nutritionist so I have no place doing so! I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, but even as a trainer …

Sh*t People Say on Instagram

Sh*t People Say on Instagram

After taking a two month hiatus from Facebook, (kind of like Rihanna, but without a nude picture scandal), I spent more time with the types of social media that personally make me happy, laugh, and keep me inspired–Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram. I carved out more time to make the recipes I salivated over (and could actually …

Nutri Ninja Review…Time To Shake Things Up!

Fruit

Remember how I was all excited back in June to go to my first Fitbloggin’ Conference? But then I up and moved cross-country which depleted my bank account and any available vacation time to take such a trip back down south for said conference? Well, some good came out of it—even though I couldn’t make …

Friday Night Foodie Night: Bowl of Ramen Noodle Goodness

Ramen Noodles_

When I’m craving a food, I lose all a good bit of ability to concentrate on anything else but said food. This happened last Friday afternoon. As productive as I tried to be, ramen encompassed my entire mind. I don’t know if it was the weather—it is starting to be the kind where you want to …

Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes & other scrumptiousness!

Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes -- Cherie Runs This

While I’m down (not out–NEVER out!) with the sciatica, I’m making sure to stay on point with my food. You see these little “inspirational” posters all over Pinterest: {My boobs would look like that, too, if I held them up–just saying.} I’m a believer. I’m not able to go all H.A.M. in the gym at …

If it’s not one thing, it’s sciatica.

injured

  I feel good. Really good. {Yeah, my mirror’s not dirty. They’re paint spots, okay? Haa.} Well, except for a diagnosis of sciatica this past Tuesday. Sweet baby goodness gracious, does that sh*t hurt. Sciatica stems from something else, and in my case, it’s stemming from the herniated lumbar disc. Yes, that same injury from …

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, …
