Pre-Season Training and Scary Goals!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday! My attitude towards Mondays has gone 180 degrees because at work, they provide us with bagels on Monday morning. This is probably one of the best perks you could give a runner-employee. Pass the carbs, please.

As we are nearing the middle of summer, I have definitely become more conscious with the amount of running I am doing/was doing..and by was…

Tips for a Successful Beach Run

20140715-110453-39893226.jpg
I am pretty lucky that my roommate is from the beach originally so whenever we go back to her house to visit there are major perks involved: salt water taffy, New Jersey peaches, homemade ice cream and beach running. Growing up my family never went to the beach (because we would go back home to Finland during the summers) so beach running is a fairly new endeavor for me.

This past weekend, I had…

How to gain speed in the pre-season

Hi folks!

Writing to you again from the wonderful world of Helsinki, Finland! My trip is just coming to an end as I am soon wrapping up my last day here. Tomorrow I will be getting on a flight and landing back home in the – arguably – best city in the world. I can’t wait!

Rawxies Raw Cookies!

20140611-123406-45246305.jpg
A few weeks ago I was sent a few samples of a raw cookie with undeniably cute packaging and design. I mean the cookies are even shaped like little hearts! And it was perfect timing, I was about to go on a mini trip Upstate and then was heading to Finland the following week. I am hungry ALL THE TIME so easy snacks that I can bring with me that aren’t filled with bogus are a must!

The company,…

Run another half marathon!

Here’s a mini recap into Brooklyn Half!
Two days before the half I was stuck in bed, coughing my lungs out and blowing my nose with no end in sight. I had no idea what was going on but I knew I wasn’t sick with the flu. It…

Long Time, No Blog

[new post] Lessons Learned in my new “Long Time, No Blog” post! #jobs #running #life #help #omgimgraduating

Hi wonderful beings!

So, as maybe you have noticed, or maybe you haven’t, I haven’t updated in a while. I’m in my last semester of college and things have gotten way out of control – well that might be an exaggeration, but things have certainly taken precedence over blogging and more unfortunately, running.

So many unexpected things happened in the past few weeks and months.

1. Got through to a…

Safe Running in the Dark

Safe Running in the Dark with @GoneforaRUNcom #giveaway #runnersafety #runchat

March has been so long overdue! Seriously, despite being the shortest month, February will by far be the longest. Snow and cold weather can get atta here.

I started my training for Brooklyn Half sort of last week, sort of this week. I’m excited for the weather to become a bit warmer so that I can start going out in the mornings and not freeze to death. That being said, I feel like it isn’t…
