First bike ride of the year

Remember how I declared that this was the summer I was going to ride my bicycle? On Sunday I went for a 16 mile bike ride. It was so great to get a bike ride in at the beginning of May! This was my first real outside bike ride of the year. I mean, I’ve […]

Olive playing the part of a sugar crashing crab monster

Running, sugar, yoga

(Not) running That long run on Sunday? DID NOT HAPPEN. Sunday was one of the really long, jam packed days with so much that needed to get done that a long run never happened. I took the dog for a two mile walk though, that felt great. The sugar crash I love sweets, but we […]

Looking to Tyranena & YOUR favorite non-running workout

The Tyranena Beer Run Half Marathon is only a few weeks away. I’m ready for it. And even if I weren’t ready for it, I’d be ready for it — if that makes any sense. What’s the worse that can happen? I have a 13.1 mile slow jog (<— LOL, I said JOG) with my […]

I’ve been practicing Bikram yoga for 6 months now. Somehow I’ve gained 10 pounds. But I’ve got a really good triangle pose going. And I can hold my arms straight out in front of me for a very long time. The 10 pounds might be related to the fact that I’m running a lot less […]

Reviewing Lululemon’s the (towel) mat

When I first started practicing yoga I used a yoga mat that came in a yoga kit I’d had for years. It came with blocks and straps and possibly a VHS video. When I began to take my yoga more seriously I switched to a Jade yoga mat, which is thicker and is also sticky. […]


Bikram and power yoga have been my primary workouts since the Disney Goofy Challenge in January. It’s been so nice to not have a training plan to follow and to just throw on my yoga gear and hit the mat. I find a great deal of relaxation in yoga, but it’s also endurance and builds […]

Leaving it all on the mat

In December I mentioned in a post that I wasn’t going to be running Ragnar Chicago this year, and since then Team Fartlek has decided that they will not be running either. A few of the teammates couldn’t come back this year, however those that could jumped on board with Renee‘s team and will be […]
