Walk Your Way to Perfect Fitness

Our modern lifestyle involves less physical activity and more of sitting on the desk for hours together. We all know that this is potentially dangerous for health, yet we seldom take it seriously, until it is too late.We all want to be healthy and fit but are unable do so because of laziness and our day to day commitments that keep us busy.The idea of going regularly to a gym is something that we have many times but seldom implement for long. If we do have time, we try to postpone doing any physical activity....more

Run For Your Life

Let me tell you a little story, about a girl who has been afraid...This girl is a talented, not so little girl, she is shy, afraid to be embarrassed, looked at and seen.  She is orderly and strives for perfection.  She doesn't like to mess up, she doesn't like competition, she doesn't like new things!  She has been afraid.  Fear has kept her from trying, from being involved, from growing and stretching.We have encouraged, pushed, forced, given up, bribed... all of her life!Try something, anything!...more

2016 miles in 2016

Last year I participated in a challenge to log 2,015 running miles in a year. The challenge was sponsored by Run The Edge, a group based out of Boulder, Colorado whose mission is to get people moving while at the same time sponsoring charitable organizations that focus on helping others. These include virtual races for efforts such as Girls on The Run, Judi’s House, and Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs. There was also a VERY fun virtual challenge to post a running theme selfie every day in the month of July. ...more

Why I'm Glad I Pushed Myself to Run My First 10K

There's nothing like the feeling of crossing a finish line. It's empowering! So you'd think the most exciting part of finishing my first 10K would be crossing the finish line (which was really awesome), but it wasn't the most exciting part. For me, it was trekking across the Bay Bridge and running past each mile marker. That was my most exciting part was the journey. ...more

How I Became A Runner

I was never passionate about running. I mean, sure, I jogged the occasional 3 miles. I even got up to 7 miles at a time, but complained that my knees hurt.I wasn't passionate about running because I told myself I just wasn't built to be a runner. I'm already 40 and it's not smart to start running seriously now. My knees are weak. I'm a slow runner. I get bored. I could never run longer than an hour, yuck.Blah, blah, blah...It amazes me what we can convince ourselves NOT to do because it's outside of our comfort zone....more

Running Is NOT My Therapy

I used to think this about running too. I'd see "running is my therapy" somewhere and think, "Yep, it's mine too." But then the other day I was feeling down. I was sad, sluggish, unmotivated. I knew that going for a run would make me feel better, both mentally and physically. And yet at that moment, running was just about the last thing I wanted to do. What I wanted to do was crawl into bed, pull the covers over my head, and take a nap. Which is exactly what I did. ...more

Not everyday can be sunshine and roses

The one thing that you can be sure about in life is that no day is ever the same. Running makes that fact much more apparent. Yesterday I ran four miles... four, not fourteen. But you would've thought I was ending a marathon by the way I looked and how I felt. My legs felt like lead and my upper body felt like a wet noodle. My heart rate shot through the roof in the first mile, despite my slower pace....more
