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 …

10 Things I’m Not FALLing For

10 Things I'm Not Falling For - cherierunsthis.com

You know I mean business if I’m willing to end the title of a post with a preposition and just leave it like that. 😉 Anyhooo, Happy First Day of Autumn! I’m so not a summer person and quite thankful that it’s gone for three whole seasons now. I also don’t care for the term “fall.” I …

Januarians at the gym & the people that hate them.

With only a few days left in 2012, the time is near. JANUARY. But not just January…a group that some of you like to refer to as THE JANUARIANS. You know, the mass of people that purchase a gym membership as part of their New Year’s Resolution and in hordes, flock to their local gym …

13.1 = Half Marathon. Period.

I don’t want to call this a rant. It’s more of a scratchin’-my-head-things-that-make-me-go-can’t-we-all-just-get-along thing… but after the many Tweets, Facebook statuses, comments, other blog posts, vlogs and random conversation I had to throw in my two cents.

You pity my running speed. I don’t.

I am now a half marathoner. Unofficially. Actually, it’s not “unofficial” to me. It wasn’t a nationally or regionally or locally known half marathon. It was my own. Let’s call it the “Cherie Woke Up On Friday And Decided To Run 13.1 Miles On The Bolin Creek Trail To See If She Could Half Marathon.” …

I am enough.

I subscribe to way too magazines that I never seem to have time to read. So, to make time, I either read on the porcelain thrown {yeah, yeah TMI} or in bed at night as I try to get sleepy. So two night ago, I was reading Fitness Magazine and I saw this right before …

Face to Face: The teacher who called me Precious.

I wasn’t ready to write this post. Not yet. I wasn’t ready for yesterday to happen. But it did. When the time came, I wanted it to play out just as it had in my head a million times over. But this chance meeting came and went, out of my hands and out of my …

A run is a run.

I’m not a mushy, weepy, emotional gal. There’s nothing wrong with being one, but it’s just not my general make up. Oh don’t get me wrong; I am a highly spirited, excited, fiery chick. But few things will get me to be all “boo-hoo“. The Steelers, my Mommy and this weight loss journey were the …
