It’s Fitness Fashion Friday and I have to formally apologize to all the guys in the room, I have another sports bra review today. Sorry boys. Hopefully a company will send me some tighty whities soon and I’ll have something for you. As part of my relationship with Brooks they gave me four sports bras to choose from this month. I chose the Women’s Epiphany Bra II because I … [Read more...]

I am a Brooks Run Happy Ambassador and recently the company contacted me with a fun offer – In the spirit of Valentine’s Day I could outfit someone and take them out on a “Run Happy” date. Being a running shoe nerd, I was super excited to pick out a pair of Brooks running shoes for Ben. I took into consideration – his size, potential mileage and crazy high ballerina arches. I … [Read more...]

Hello! This morning I woke up around 5am with Ben’s early alarm (he’s on an early sched this week). So, I was up and ready to run a few easy miles before the sun. I’m always hesitant to run before the sun (mostly because I’m scared of the dark) but Brooks recently sent me the perfect piece of gear for this - Brooks Nightlife Vest The most obvious thing that makes it great … [Read more...]

RooSport Giveaway

IMG_4769-800x600.jpg

Today is Tuesday and according to my scrappy marathon training plan I’m supposed to do mile repeats for my run. I still do not like them at all. Even after I’m done I’m not like, “Yah! I’m so glad I did that!!” No. I’m more like, “That was unpleasant. I’m glad it’s over.” In the grand old race of the tortoise and the hare I am the tortoise.  Exhibit A: my tortoise … [Read more...]

wlEmoticon-smile.png

First off let me say that I've had my Garmin 305 since November 2008! So, I’m very partial to it It’s seen me through hundreds of runs and many many races. Good, bad, ugly I wore the Garmin. But, it’s on it’s last legs and when a MOTOACTV rep recently sent me their GPS/Fitness Tracker/MP3 player I was super excited to give it a spin. One of my Garmin’s side buttons caved in … [Read more...]

Zensah Compression Socks Review

You’ve probably already heard of Girls on the Run around the blog world. It’s an organization the works with pre-teens to encourage self respect through running. I’ve wanted to get involved with them for over a year now, but there is no Orange County Chapter. I met with a few locals to start a chapter last year, but it fell through. Well, the organization is still very much on … [Read more...]

mile-markers.jpg

The holidays are just around the corner and I’ve come to realize that not everyone rushes out on December 24th to buy gifts (just me?). But, just because you shop early doesn’t mean you know what that runner in your life wants (they’re probably too busy carb-loading to tell ya anyways). So here is a list of the Best Gifts for Runners this season: 1. Books about Running! … [Read more...]

Champions Shaping Active Wear

I was recently contacted by a rep from Champion about their new line of Shaping Active Gear. I was super excited because I heard about this line from a co-worker and really wanted to try it! My guess is when Champion heard I dress like a broken down tragedy to work-out they offered to send me over a whole new wardrobe! This is perfect for me since I’m a personal trainer now, … [Read more...]

Long Run Running Shoes

wlEmoticon-winkingsmile.png

Happy Monday! I started my day with a 5 mile run. I specifically didn’t bring my ipod since this was a recovery run and music sometimes makes me go faster (at least on the good songs). No. Since I did 19 miles on Saturday I knew I should pay attention to my body not Katy Perry telling me I’m a Firework I get a lot of questions about running shoes and really believe everyone … [Read more...]

New Running Shoes

I get excited over new running shoes like Carrie used to get over Manolos. For real. After deciding I desperately needed new ones I did some internet research to compare and contrast my two all time favorites - Asics Gel Nimbus & Adidas Supernova with a new brand - Mizuno. Today I went to the mecca of running shoes to get a new pair - RoadRunner Sports... I am super … [Read more...]

Gear: Neck Gaiter

I tried a new piece of running gear from Target this morning - A Neck Gaiter. It is $14.99. I don't think the weather was cold enough for me to really appreciate it so I'm going to give an update when it gets a little colder. Even though it was sprinkling on me this morning it wasn't that cold and I could have went without it. But, I know some day soon I will be thanking my … [Read more...]

Gear: Target Running Pants

IMG_2290

This morning I took my new Target running pants for a test "run" - ha, get it? I am in serious need of cold weather gear since I never ran with capris or tights in California. I loved them! They were a little thicker than my other tights I got from a dept store (JC Penney?) and I like that they are full length. Pros - Full length Long zipper at bottom for easy … [Read more...]
