Happy New Gear! Kate’s Visor Advisory

Important foreword: I just ran 17 miles and am recovering with a blood mary, so if the rest of this blog post makes about as much sense as that title, you’ll know why. Now on to my new gear! R and I went to Nashville for our honeymoon, and we stumbled upon Nashville Running Company, […]

Alert: Our Pinterest Account Has Been Hacked!

Just as I was getting ready to create a quick post to let you know Lively Running is on Pinterest, I log in to our account and see this: Lively Running has no issue with stars n/r bling. However, we would never suggest that such an elaborate manicure has a place in the kitchen. Lively […]

Boston Update: SPOILER I Got In!!!!

Just a brief post to announce that, literally against the odds, I was accepted into the 2014 Boston Marathon. Y’all know this was the opposite outcome of what I expected, so I am like crazy happy and excited.

Race Review: Chicago Women ROCK

Capitalization theirs. Online reviews for races aren’t that easy to come by, unless you love digging through comments sections and running forums (which I actually totally do, so let me know if you need anything from the hinterlands of the Internet!), so we thought it would be helpful to share our feedback on events. Key […]

Race Report: Chicago Women Rock Half Marathon

Kate and I decided that we’d try to write reviews of the races we run- to help people pick races to run, to keep a journal of the ones we’ve done, to help people prepare, etc- but for some reason, we were both left kind of exhausted after Saturday’s half marathon so it’s taken me […]

Are Lady Races Really Necessary?

Tomorrow, I’m super-psyched to be running the Chicago Women ROCK Half-Marathon. The weather looks perfect, and I’m curious to see if I still have my race legs after taking it pretty easy, running-wise, recently due to my wedding and honeymoon. Anne is running the half-marathon, too, and so are many awesome Oak Parkers from Best […]

The Big BQ … Then the Big Letdown

I never thought I would qualify for Boston. I looked up the qualifying times at work one day — sneakily, as if I was about to do something really bad, like stream “Lost” even after the IT guy told me pretty explicitly not to do that again — and then quickly closed the tab. Run […]

Rest Day. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.

Have you all seen this picture on Pinterest?  Am I the only one who doesn’t get it? I mean, I get it… but I LOVE rest day.  In fact, according to my half marathon training plan, today isn’t really even a rest day.  It’s a two mile tempo run.  But I’m feeling kind of stiff […]

Words to Run By

Several years ago, a colleague had just finished her first half-marathon and I was getting ready for mine. I asked her for advice: What got her through all 13.1 miles? One of the key tips she gave me was to find a mantra that I could repeat to myself when the going got tough. On […]

My running shoes

I’m almost getting to the point where I have to ask myself, How many running shoes are too many running shoes? According to a lot of people, the answer would probably be, you know, 2 pairs.
