Sometimes you can’t be superman (or woman)

Mr. Zippy likes to claim that he is SuperMan thanks to his very fortunate genes. While I lead a healthy lifestyle and still manage to get sick and injured, SuperMan, Mr. Zippy somehow manages time and again to eat crappy food, train through injury upon injury, and never slow down. It’s frustrating. Today I was reminded once again that I am indeed ordinary human. I […]

In the center of gravity–a chat with Newton’s Ian Adamson

Ian Adamson at Newton Labs I’ve been a fan of Ian Adamson forever. For you young ‘uns out there who might not know who he is, let me spell it out: He is the most successful adventure racer of all time with seven world championship wins, 22 world championship podium finishes, 18 international adventure race championship titles and Gold, Silver and Bronze medals at the […]

And that’s a wrap!

The crew at lunch–me, Jill, Beth, Jason and Clair Meet ups; amazing views; education; goodies; opportunities. The Fitness and Health Bloggersconference in Boulder was all that and more. I had a great time meeting some amazing rock star bloggers and learning more than my small brain can handle. You know I love me some bullet points, so here are the highlights: MissZippy meets Erin It […]

Meet Seven New Things–Live!

We’re trying something new and innovative here at the Fitness and Health Bloggers Conference–live blogging. Think of it as speed dating between bloggers and brands. Each blogger gets to spend 5 minutes with each of seven brands. During that time, we are sending out our impressions of these products right to you, live. Below, my 5-minute take on 7 new products: 1.  Rudi’s gluten-free multi-grain […]

Sticky topic: Do you use disclaimers?

I’m here at the Fitness & Health Blogger Conference in Boulder, where I’m having a great time (in spite of Beth’s boot camp!) learning tons and getting to meet up with some real social media A-listers. Not to mention great fellow bloggers like Jason, Jill, Erin and SUAR. One topic that caught me off guard was the subject of using disclaimers when you do a […]

Three Things Thursday (outta here version!)

1. I’m off to Boulder for the Health and Fitness Bloggers Conference! Cannot wait. I don’t know what’s the best part–the conference itself, meeting up with SUAR, Jason, and Jill, or being in Boulder. Expect some live blogging and lots of fun posts during and after. 2. While there, I’m going in…to Newton HQ that is. I’m catching up with super stud Ian Adamson and […]

Run Pretty Far (review and giveaway)

Yesterday, I gave you a sneak peak of the great tank the gals at Run Pretty Far sent me to review and giveaway. Today I’m going to fill you in on this great company and its products. A fairly new company, Run Pretty Far was created by two running women who wanted to combine great fit and fabric with fun designs. I think they’ve succeeded. […]

What I’m loving right now

Ok, I’m not being original here in this post about a few of my current favorites, but I wanted to share them with you anyhow, ’cause frankly, they rock! Here goes: 1. These shoes: They’re from the Merrell barefoot line and they are my go-to everyday shoes. So cute, so comfy, and love the yellow color. They make my feet happy.2. This oatmeal–It’s pure, simple […]

This one I won’t miss!

I’ll admit, being sidelined for pretty much all of 2011 so far (and I mean so far–this will change!) has been a real drag. Watching races come and go and seeing my friends out there kicking ass in them makes me sad. Boston, Cherry Blossom–I could go on–have all seen me on the sidelines. But one race that I am not going to miss is […]
