The straw that made me get a Camelbak!

One of the biggest challenges I have always had with my long runs is carrying enough water/liquid……I used to wear a hydration belt but I HATED it!


Soooooo annoying……So I found this hand held stainless steel water bottle from lulu lemon a couple years ago and have been using it ever since but, ┬áIt only holds about 600ML of liquid…..

Where there is a will there is a way! Getting those runs in!

18 days until the National Peace Officers Memorial Run!

I worked all weekend…….Gross

Toenails are for Sissies

I remember seeing this sign being held up by someone on my very first half marathon and I started laughing to myself……Love it!


As soon as I increase my to over 25 miles a week I start losing toenails…..



If you aren’t a runner you might say gross, but I know a lot of you are giggling cause you know exactly what I mean here.

This isn’t as bad as it gets at all but still not pretty to look at. When I was last marathon training I had approximately 6.4 toe nails left by race day……..

I do like seeing the look on the poor ladies face when I go in for a pedicure and whip there puppies out……yikes

I am not sure if this means my shoes are too big, too small, too tight ect….Maybe its how I am stepping….I don’t know. But it sure does make it hard to rock a peep toe.

If anyone has any tips to prevent/heal this I would love to know so I don’t have to stick my toes in the sand all summer!
