Cross Training Footwear

This morning as I was at my gym, waiting for my Body Pump class to start, I snapped a photo of my shoes and then got to thinking about them....more

Fueling With Real Foods, Part 4: Pocket Fuel Naturals {and a giveaway!}

I’ve written before in this series about how convenient gels are for fueling on the go, but unfortunately they just don’t agree with me.  While whole foods are a great alternative, they’re not always practical.  In my search to find foods to fuel with that are effective, yet convenient enough to take with you on your workout, a friend of mine recommended I check out Pocket Fuel Naturals....more

Fueling With Real Food Series, Part 1: Dates

In my relatively short running experience, one thing that I’ve learned is that as much as I like to fuel long runs with gels and sports drinks, they don’t always like me. They give me horrible stomach pains and as convenient as they are,  the hippie in me would rather fuel with foods that are natural and have ingredients that I can pronounce rather than something created in a lab....more

I’m in! I’m in! I’m in!

So I’m going to have to eat my words for a minute here. Ever since I got into running and had a couple of half marathons under my belt, I would constantly get asked when I was going to run a full marathon and my answer was always, “Never!” I had zero desire to run that kind of distance and put in all the hours of training it required....more
I've done two marathons in Pensacola, FL, in 2012 and 2013, and loved the experience! Good luck ...more

10km Footstock Race Recap

Right around this time last month, I participated in my first 10km race. It was raining, but I managed. For this race, we experienced torrential downpour. No word of a lie, there were times where closing my eyes and running was better than keeping them open and drowning my eyeballs. But, I did it....more

Workout Wednesday: Running Playlist

So obviously I talk about running a good bit, but people often ask me what I listen to when I’m running. I need music that is going to keep me going for a good bit and get my mind off of what I’m actually doing. So I created a playlist on Spotify (Spotify is not paying me to write this post) for my last half marathon and really loved the songs. So what do I listen to?Shakira – Hips Don’t LieShakira – Whenever, Wherever To get the rest of the list, visit: www.georgiapeachmommy.com Xo,J...more

It's Not the Same Race at All: How the Front of the Pack Differs from the Back of the Pack

This is not the recap I had planned on writing. I adore Runner’s World, that is clearly no secret around here. I’ve had nothing but fantastic experiences with them and their races. But the post I’m about to write isn’t just about the Runner’s World Heartbreak Hill Half Marathon. It’s about what I’m unfortunately going to assume is the reality of the majority of races out there. ...more
This is disheartening.  I've only done one 5k & since I was in the first wave of a large race ...more

Do Your Clothes Smell Before You Even Start Your Workout?

I have super sensitive skin when it comes to laundry detergent. In fact, I use Dreft (yes the detergent you usually use for babies) for all of my clothes. I have used it for years, and if I use anything different I usually suffer the consequences. I will refrain from the TMI that it causes me....more
