I just had my two year anniversary of practicing Bikram Yoga. I was sent a reminder email, and upon reading that email, I was reminded of how far I have ...
On Sunday, I ran 14 miles, a significant distance, especially since less than two months ago, I hadn’t run more than 6 miles since October. Based on Sunday’s outcome, I am doing too much, too soon. It was painful, everything hurt, but the worst part was my hamstring began to ache, which kept me from [...]

***Since the initial response was a little slow, we are extending the 6dollarbands giveaway one more week until next Friday, May 17 . Please share (click here to share the post).*** Along with a lot of marathoners, Boston 2014 is on my radar. According to my last post about it, I was running a marathon [...]
I love trying new products, and I really love trying new products that work well, and are priced really well! I was contacted by 6dollarbands and asked to review their headbands. If you’ve seen my hair (especially first thing in the morning), you know I desperately need hair control while running. 6dollarbands is pretty self [...]
It’s only been a week since the horrific tragedy in Boston, but thankfully the two responsible won’t be hurting anyone else. After the initial shock, then sadness, then relief I wasn’t there, came the thought, “Am I going to be too scared to race in a big marathon now?” As the week went on, and [...]
I am certainly not unique in saying yesterday, 4/15/13, was an emotional day. But maybe what is unique is how quickly my emotions changed. The days leading up to Patriot’s Day were tough for me. I had worked so hard to re qualify for Boston, to go back and run the greatest marathon known, and a stupid [...]
Thinking of the victims of the horrible tragedy in Boston today, and thankful my loved ones and I are safe at home.
Last year at this time, I was stalking the Boston weather (read about it here), and freaking out a bit a lot. Boston Marathon forecast 2012 (that 80 degrees changed to near 90 degrees). This year, the weather seems to be absolute perfection. I mean, seriously? Perfect running conditions on Monday. Boston Marathon forecast 2013 But, [...]
I recently got my final Boston Marathon packet in the mail. With 13 days until the Marathon, my emotions are a bit different this year than they were last year. I qualified, I registered, I am getting the emails, the mail…yet I am not running. I don’t want to open this envelope…yet. Although I know I [...]
If you keep up on Run Revolution, you undoubtedly know of my affinity for Brooks. I run in Brooks, I wear Brooks clothes, and they are just a really cool company. Being a local company doesn’t hurt either. You also may (or most likely may not) know of my lifelong dreams of being a model. [...]
I can’t believe I did this…I missed Run Revolution’s Birthday! On March 14, Run Revolution turned one! This little website has grown a LOT over the past year, and I want to thank all of you for stopping by. If you’ve come here for the posts, the training, the inspiration, the self-care tips, or just [...]
This was the first year (I’ve run) that the St. Pat’s Dash was ON St. Pat’s Day. And, the weather was actually nice! Last year it snowed. The year before it poured. This year was beautiful! Cold, but dry, and the sun even came out! LH and I decided our goal was: HAVE FUN! We [...]
And…I am back. As a runner, I am back. Over the past month, I have worked my way up (pain-free) to pre-training! After injuring my hamstring back in October, I thought, at times, that I may never run more than 4 miles ever again. I was hoping to run the Seattle Marathon in November, and [...]
February 1st, I switched yoga studios…temporarily. Since my training non-training lately has involved mostly yoga, and limited running, I decided to change up my yoga practice a bit. I wanted to take a couple of month break from the 105 degree heat, and try out another local yoga studio, Breathe Hot Yoga. Although the studio is [...]
