Understanding Heart Rate Zones

By |

The month of January has absolutely flown by, and my primary goal of being consistent has been going well. This month I was mostly focused on getting back into the routine of working out. I wasn’t really focused on my times, mileage, or stats. As we head into February, consistency is still going to be […]

Ride or Die: Winter Running

By |

I’ve seen *~*beauty gurus*~* on YouTube publish “Ride or Die” videos with their favorite makeup and skin care products (and get overly excited when we have a product in common), so I thought it would be interesting to figure out what my all-time-favorite, can’t-live-without-it winter running accoutrement are. I’ve landed on my top five.

I’m sure […]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 2nd, 2019: New Year, New Us!

By |

With the new year, my number one resolution is to put real time and energy into the blog again. To do this, it really starts with the Weigh-In Wednesday posts. The whole point of this blog was accountability from the very beginning, and not doing the weigh-in post is not a very good way to […]

Christmas on Cape Cod! Happy New Year!

By |

On Christmas morning, Ellie, Audrey, and I piled into our new Subaru (woo new car!) and drove east to the ocean. This would be Audrey’s first time on Cape Cod, which has been a bucket list item for Ellie and me since we adopted her eight years ago. Finally we had the time off (or […]

50×4: Ohio! A Christmas Story 10K

By |

Welcome to the inaugural post of a new series by Ellie and me. We’re calling it 50×4, which is short for Fifty Bagels, Fifty Dates, Fifty Races, Fifty States! That’s right, folks. Ellie and I are going to attempt to race in all fifty states (and D.C. and maybe some other places)!

Baltimore City Turkey Trot 2018!

By |

On Thanksgiving, Ellie, Jeff, Adrienne and myself woke up to a brisk Baltimore morning and made our way over to the Waverly YMCA for a good ole’ fashioned turkey trot! None of us have been running, so expectations were low, but we had a blast!

Before the race, we did a quick tour of the inside […]

Run716 2018 In The Books!

By |

On Sunday, Ellie and I woke up bright and early for the second annual Run 716 race in downtown Buffalo. It is so refreshing running a race locally, and also not having to cart around a bike, wet suit, and everything else involved in a triathlon. So much easier!

Last year Ellie and I set a […]

Greek Fest 5k 2018 In The Books!

By |

This past Friday we ran the Greek Fest 5k. This year was pretty cool because it was a return for the race after a four-year hiatus. It is a great local run, and we are glad it is back. This year was also organized by a friend of ours, who did a fantastic job of […]

Balancing Triathlon Training

By |

Swim, Bike, Run. Three back to back workouts set up in that particular order to limit potential injuries due to fatigue. Or at least that is what I figure the reason to be. Getting ready for this type of event is an interesting way to get in shape because really, you actually do have to […]

Signs from Above, or My Girth?

By |

Today started out like any other day. Ellie and I were the usual 30 minutes late, and traffic was moving well. The commute in was uneventful, and I even got to run an errand before work. It was all fine and dandy until I sat down at my desk. The universe then sent me message, […]
