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 …

Gear Up and Go with Runner’s World and Mizuno Running at Dick’s Sporting Goods!

The long time readers of my blog know that I used to work as a Certified Fitness Trainer at Dick’s Sporting Goods. These same long time readers also know my very good reason for leaving that company! {If you’re itching to know the final straw that broke my back as to why I left that …

Confession: I Hulk out when I can’t run.

What’s that I was saying about running plans? Yeah, sometimes sh*t just happens & you have to deal with it. I made a deal with myself never to skip a run just because I’m tired. It’s like, “Oh, you’re tired, Cherie? Oh WAAAAH. Cry yourself a river. You work part-time, you have no kids, and …

Dropping weight. Literally.

Now I’m reeeeally procrastinating on this whole packing-for-my-roadtrip-thing. It’s a good 24 hours since my last post and is anything in my suitcase yet? Haa!! I have at least done some mental packing. That’s where I think about what outfits I want to bring and what I can mix and match to save space in …

Confession: I’m addicted to workout clothes & running shoes. So what?

There are a lot of vices out there, folks. Choose your addictive poison: drinking, smoking, gambling–these are the common ones. Not your style? Nah, me either. Well….okay, I have been known to spend some quality time at a casino twice a year or so, but it’s totally under control. Though I love it, I most …

Brooks Pumped Up Kicks & BOSU Ball Fun!

Back in the not so very merry month of May, I learned the hard way about not wearing proper shoes/old shoes/non-supportive shoes {RE: stress fracture from Hell} and just over training in general. I’m not one of those minimalist shoe wearing-barefoot running-Vibram donning kind of chicks. My over pronating feet and I like support and …

FYI: A heart rate monitor is not just a bulky watch.

This past weekend, hubby and I went to my workplace to take advantage of the Family Discount Night! I bypassed the welcoming table full of goodies {okaaaay, I snatched one cookie} and headed straight for the heart rate monitors. Somehow I managed to lose 70 pounds without one time even knowing if my heart rate …

Trail Running + Crazy Workout = Inversion Table

A few days ago, we were having quite the magical weather here in North Cackalacky. It’s usually still decent way into November, but even for this time of the year, it was beyond awesome outside. Being that it was my day off from work, I had already tackled grocery shopping earlier that morning, and time …

Power Tower = Tower of Love

Some girls like flowers; some like candy. I like exercise equipment. So to congratulate me on passing both of my personal training certifications, hubby bought me a Fitness Gear Power Tower! I had my eyes on this puppy since we assembled it in the store. I’d watch the customers try it out–men who could and …
