Women’s Running Magazine awesomeness and Be Your Own Runner.

Hey all! I wish I had time for more of a post-post today, but well, yeah, nope…I don’t. I’m writing this on Sunday night and the Billboard Music Awards are taking most of my attention. I can’t miss a Prince sighting, y’all!! Anyhow, it’s the thought that counts and my thought is there at least! …

Recap: The Pittsburgh Half Marathon was full awesome!

It’s been exactly one week now, but I still cannot get the complete awesomeness that was the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh {Half} Marathon out of my mind. I wasn’t going to do it because I now tend to focus on weight training vs. cardio. I wasn’t going to do it because I just ran a …
