What do you think of when you hear these running words?!

It has been two weeks since my last treadmill run.  I have been spoiled with all of my outdoor runs lately.  When I am outside it is hot but I still get a nice breeze to cool me off.   I was reminded today of how I overheat on the treadmill and had to sit with the fan 1 foot away from me afterwards.

My sis came to work out with me and all of the kiddos played some Skip-Bo while we were sweating.  I LOVED card games as a kid and my mom and I would play at the table after school all of the time.  

IMG 5663

My good friend from California (JESS… the one that got married just a few months ago) and another good friend from Virginia (KARIM… she has the best instagram) were in town so we got together for some food of course.

We tried really hard to copy their picture but I think the kids pulled it off better.

4 street tacos for me.  Two chicken and two beef and then the rest of Brooke’s quesadilla.  When in marathon training—>  no food left behind.

The kiddos then waited patiently for their main event.

Waffles with berries and fluffy whipped cream.  Those three conquered that waffle.

Also, 5 exercises to do before every run has some simple moves to try that will help strengthen those glutes!

You know that game where you say the very first word that you think of when you hear a word or phrase?  Let’s try that out for running terms.  I’ll tell you a running term and you tell me the first word(s) that come to mind when you hear/read that word.  You can do just a few or all of them:)

Your answer to injuries had me laughing so hard… thank you for that! Loved all of your answers! Have an awesome day and I do have to ask you why a new pair of running shoes makes you think nervous!?


I am a creature of habit and routine. When I find something I like, I convince myself that nothing will ever be that good again. Haha New sneakers = exciting but an invitation to obsess about whether or not they are going to live up to my crazy expectations of perfect. :)


love those 5 exercises. i am always looking for simple ways to incorporate strength training into running days.


Hahha yes, no food left behind! As my mileage has been building so has my appetite. I forgot how hungry marathon training makes you!

Those tacos look amazing, and have you ever tried the salted watermelon gu? I’ve heard good things, but it also reminded me of you!
