Strong & Kind bars are a new line of protein bars by Kind brand featuring savory flavors like Roasted Jalapeno, Honey Smoked BBQ, Honey Mustard, Thai Sweet Chili and Hickory Smoked. This is an intriguing idea and fills a void in the market since most protein and energy bars feature fruit or sweet flavors like […]

Love the t-shirt!

The Potomac River Running store in downtown DC, last week, hosted the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon series kick-off event for DC’s March race during their own run club. We read on Facebook that there would be raffles and other fun stuff so we built the run club into our Wednesday long run. Now, with the […]

Fall has arrived! After an unusually hot and humid start to September last week, this week brought cooler weather, the start of seasonal allergies, earlier sunsets and my first pumpkin spice latte – it’s officially fall now. Monday – P90X Shoulders & Arms for 60 minutes Tuesday – REST (plan called for 3 miles at […]

Modeling our new jackets

The Annapolis 10-Miler will always hold a special place in my heart. It was the first race I ever ran. I remember being so nervous that I’d get picked up by the race vehicle for going too slowly and wouldn’t get my finisher’s shirt. Annapolis is where I realized I loved running races. We didn’t […]

Fletcher's Boathouse - Turnaround Point

Halfway through marathon training! This first week in September was extremely hot and humid. It’s hard to remember ever running with tights and long-sleeves, but I know that weather is not too far away. Next week we drop back our long run mileage and then pick it up to 17 the following week! Monday – […]

Strong yet feminine

Under Armour recently came out with the Get Going run shorts for women. I tried these on last week at CitySports and loved them! They reminded me of the Nike Rival shorts but with a little stiffer material. But at $35, these shorts are significantly less expensive than the Nike Rival and many other running […]

After months of debating what to spend my Lululemon gift card on, I finally decided to buy a hot pink Run Swiftly scoop neck tee in May. I loved the color, the fit, the fabric. I literally wore this shirt just 4 times including on our vacation in Italy hiking in Cinque Terre and for […]

Almost done with the 14-miler!

This week we really picked it up with a mid-week 8.5 miler and then a 14 mile run with a fast pace for 5.5 and slower pace for 8.5 miles on Saturday. Monday – P90X YogaX Tuesday – 3 mile jog (plan called for 10:29 pace) My legs felt pretty tired from the Annapolis 10 […]

Having had our Garmin Forerunner GPS watches for just one year now, Mike and I expect them to still be in good condition. However, Mike’s watch band has started peeling off the watch face over the past month. He has used super glue as a temporary solution to hold the watchband on. Last week, I […]
