Runger often occurs several hours after a tough run, but frequently occurs a day or even two after the run. If not mitigated, runger can result in weight gain for runners, even those who are crushing serious miles. However, I have an effective strategy for minimizing runger
Training consistently is of course key to fitness and a successful race day. But since everyone is so busy, runners often skimp on stretching, cross-training and eating healthy. There is only so much time in the day! Juggling kids, full-time jobs and a logging miles is no joke!
That’s why incorporating superfoods, smoothies and yoga is so great for runners
Earlier this week, my husband asked my 3 year old, Zoe, what she was going to get me for Mother's Day. Without any hesitation, she announced I was getting a BRAND NEW fishing pole. Zoe loves fishing. For me, fishing ranks up there with mornings without coffee or going to the dentist, but, based on her excitement, I think my fate is sealed.
You, unlike Zoe, may not be prepared with the most perfect gift for Mom, but, don't worry, we're here to fix that. I asked the Catonsville Moms Run This Town group (700+ members strong!) what was on their Mother's Day wish list and here are the top 5 answers:
I get a lot of questions about running with babies-- these questions run the gamut of suggestions from which kind of stroller, to good running routes in the area, to tips for making it the experience comfortable for the runner and the passenger(s). I will try and touch on all of these here, with the disclaimer that -- this is my first baby, and like the rest of my running and momming -- this is a work in progress.
Exactly a week from today, I’ll be a half-marathoner. I believe a lot in positive affirmations. So, yes, it’s happening! Whether I run or walk or crawl or fly (or go on a medical stretcher), I’ll be at the finish line of the Philly Love Run 2017 this Sunday. Now that I’m in Taper Ville, I seem to have a lot of free time for reflections. It all takes me back to September 2016. I had been trying to take up running for at least a year and a half.
