There are generally two kinds of runners. There are the runners who listen to music and the runners who don’t.
One camp claims the music helps them keep pace and stay focused, while the other says that they can focus inward and keep pace by what their body is telling them. Neither is necessarily better than the other.
I say this especially because this year, I don’t fall into either camp. I used…
The Gojo Ethiopian Restaurant in Nashville, TN is very much my kind of restaurant. Delicious food and #running decor? I’m in love!

Last year, I worked pretty hard to train for a half-marathon. I hurt my hip (#StupidBursitis) in late July, kept trying to power through it in August, and finally went to the doctor and was sidelined by September.

Over the past year, more messages like that have made their way to me than I ever expected. I mean, I started this blog to try to help people, but the reality of someone saying “You helped me” is actually pretty surreal…and…
Her #runningshoes are so much prettier than mine. Make the Nimbus in pretty colors for wide, #Asics! You hear me?? I want to go #running in gaudy shoes!
Yay! New headphones! The #nikePlus Vapor headphones are the only ones I’ve ever found that don’t come out of my ears while #running. My old ones gave out after a year of solid use, and I loved them so much I went out and bought a new pair. Only regret: these are black. I prefer colors. Ah well.
You’re a kitty! You certainly are! Look at you, lying there, just being a kitty! #crazycatperson
I may not have told you guys, but I was featured in the @runnersworldmag Big Book of Running for Beginners about my #weightloss and #asthma. Super excited to see myself in there today when my wife sent me this picture.
