Wireless Headphones Review

IMG_0467-800x600.jpg

Hello! First off let me make an announcement…. Run Eat Repeat is now an official registered trademark!!! I'm pretty excited about this. Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to do with this lil' website... I started my day off with a little run to the gym again. And this time I brought along a piece of running gear I’ve been playing with for the past few weeks - … [Read more...]

Brooks Nightlife Vest Review

IMG_8288-800x600.jpg

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...]

Pumpkin Spice Bagel Thins and Ragnar Swagnar

IMG_8009-800x533.jpg

So, I heard a little rumor that Thomas’ made PUMPKIN bagel thins and I got a little too excited about it. I was on a mission to find them and went on the hunt this morning. I decided to do an easy 3 mile run and stop by the store on the way back. I did 2 miles out (past the store because they weren’t open yet) and came back around to check. This isn’t my ‘usual’ store but I … [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...]

Bliss Beauty Board Box Vlog

IMG_6275-800x533.jpg

Happy Thursday! I was very happy to use my Thai food leftovers for today’s lunch. But there wasn’t that much left (over), so I added some of this Sesame Garlic tempeh. This is way better than the other bacony kind I got last time. I recently got an amazing box of beauty products from Bliss. I was pretty excited to bust them open, but haven’t gotten the chance to try the skin … [Read more...]

Lipton Tea to Go Packets

IMG_4687-800x533.jpg

This morning I headed to my mom’s to work (I work from home) and took an early lunch to watch my little brother’s promotion. He is “graduating” 5th grade! The ceremony was short and sweet. Sadly, Matt was super bummed when I went to get him in his classroom because ALL his friends are going to the local middle school and we’re sending him somewhere else next year. (Read: … [Read more...]

Kara Goucher’s Running For Women Review

IMG_9591-800x600.jpg

Happy Thursday! Today is a rest day from running so I took a little walk and am going to hit up the gym for some strength training later. Last night I used crockpot salsa chicken to make enchiladas. I don’t know where it came from, but I’ve had a mean craving all week! I also finished off the last of the cinnamon crunch cereal. Yep, that lasted me all of 2.5 days. I should be … [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...]

July 2011 Goals Reviewed

IMG_6661-800x533.jpg

I have been craving couscous in a crazy way. Is that weird? Good. Because it goes along with all my other weird characteristics. For dinner I made a massive bowl of couscous, chickpeas, green onions and a made-up sauce (it involves hummus, almonds and tons of salt). It was amazing. It’s July 31st. This month completely raced by for me! I guess I should review my July Goals… … [Read more...]

Other titles for this post: The day Monica ate 4 granola bars in 10 minutes. In preparation for my new busy life I recently bought a ton of granola bars for snacks on the go. Only, I don’t eat them on the go. I eat them randomly between meals when I’m bored. But I digress… I’ve always been a big granola bar fan and thought I’d let ya know which ones rock. 1. The Luna Bar … [Read more...]

Running and Make Up

wlEmoticon-sadsmile.png

I was considering hitting the gym when the clouds parted at 10am and I raced out the door to get a few miles in. This week has put a major damper in my training plan Today I was able to do about 5.5 miles, but I had to walk around super muddy areas and debris. I didn’t even take my Garmin because I knew that would be the case. One of the underpasses I run through was flooded … [Read more...]
