Ready to (Roshe) Run.

Athleisure is back on LSR, and this time I brought out my new red Nike Roshe Run sneakers....more

Just Do It 2015.

New year and all that jazz. Time to hit the gym, those bucket lists, and life generally hard. Right in the face. Bull, horns, grab 'em....more

The Ad Campaign that Nike Will Never Air

I'm sorry if the headline was deceptive and you think this is a biting expose of some ad campaign chronicling Nike's appalling child labor re...more

Sunday OOTD

This Sunday brought a chill to October, which I welcomed with warm layers and a walk outside with my doxie, Rocky. After feeling a bit under the weather for a couple of weeks, layering and keeping warm was a priority even if I was only out for a brief moment....more

Recycle Old Athletic Shoes

When it comes to material goods, I am a firm believer in reincarnation. (As for the human soul, I remain Undecided.) So imagine my joy when I discovered Nike's Reuse-A-Shoe program that takes your stinky old tennis shoes, war-torn running shoes and backdated sneakers and gives the material life anew while skipping right over the landfill.

The More I Run | After 30 Runs

As of today, I've logged: 30 runs for a total of 20 hours 40 minutes and 51 seconds, a total distance of 73.12 miles, at an average page of 16:58 per mile, and a total of 6,553 calories burned.

The Truth Shall Set You Free

I've been sick for the last few days and have not been able to add any miles to my running journal this week.  I NEVER ever thought I would regret or actually miss not being able to get out and get active.  After taking this week off I'm feeling frumpy and out of shape.  Now I know that in just one week that's not a rational thought, but it does give me motivation to want to get back out as soon as I feel up to it....more

CA Women's Conference, Awkward But Good: Men on Work/Life Balance

Among the 15,000 women at Maria Shriver's The Women's Conference, "Men Who Get It" were featured in their own roundtable hosted by news anchor Brian Williams. It may have been the first time four high-powered men awkwardly talked work-life issues while live-streamed over the internet. Williams self-consciously cracked, "Spanx are for when dad comes home at night"; missing were the usual complaints about menstrual pain. ...more
