Post run

I only ran twice this week but still hit close to this week’s mileage of 22. Mike and I had plans after work every night this week and then were tired in the morning. SO… we didn’t get in that third run. We needed the sleep this week! Monday – Joggers & Lagers Run Club […]

SO excited to try out the new flavor!

Last Saturday, Mike and I stopped into the Nike store in Georgetown during our run so he could exchange his tank top. I love both the style and colors of their new running tank tops and t-shirts! They remind of Lululemon’s Run Swiftly line. – Nike Dri-Fit Knit tank – Nike Dri-Fit Knit Short-sleeve – […]

Mike with the growler outside Port City

Port City Brewery in Alexandria hosts, with local running store Pacers, a Joggers & Lagers run club every Monday. Apparently these runs used to be just once a month but were so popular that they decided to hold them every week. These runs are not metro-accessible (you’d have to get a ride from the closest […]


A recent neighborhood e-newsletter announced that Target was going to be at the Yards Park this past weekend promoting their C9 line of fitness apparel and giving out free stuff! So on Saturday, Mike and I planned to finish our run at the Yards Park, near our apartment, to check out the Target event. Ambassadors […]

Perfect day

I didn’t really follow this week’s schedule exactly according to the training plan. I was supposed to run a total of 22 miles over 3 days but I ran 26.5 miles over 4 days. Next week will also be a little bit off from the plan because we’re planning on another run club during the […]

Potomac River Running in downtown DC is the ONLY store that sells these cool Run DC shirts! I love Next Level brand for the super soft broken-in feel of their t-shirts. The shirts come in both unisex and women’s. This is just a sampling of the styles and colors. I can’t decide which one to […]


The Potomac River Running’s Birthday Bash 5K celebrated their 11th “birthday” and was held at Fairfax Corner outdoor shopping center where the Heroes vs. Villains 5K was held back in April. Mike and I really liked the paved wide course (we’ve done several trail-style 5Ks in the past) and are always impressed with PR races. […]

Finishing on a very hot day!

Week 2 was more rest than I had planned. I’m experiencing some weird tingling (more on this later) in my calves and feet so wanted to take it easy. One thing I learned from last year’s training is to listen to your body and not to stress if you miss a few training days. Monday […]

New colors for men and women

I saw these Superfeet for High Heels in a local DC running store. Mike and I both have Superfeet in our running sneakers and they make a huge difference for us. My hips and knees bothered me quite a bit before using Superfeet – they’ve really helped with my running alignment. These High Heel Superfeet […]

LOVE my new shorts! Pre-run on Saturday

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect pair of running shorts. I basically rotate my favorite three pairs: Lululemon black pace shorts (discontinued), Nike Rival navy, Nike Rival black. I need some colored shorts and another pair to add to the rotation. I wanted to like the Oiselle Roga shorts that get rave reviews […]
