Hatfield 10 Miler

The Hatfield Five & Dime race held in Hatfield, PA (30 miles outside Philadelphia) featured 2 distance options, a 5 miler or a 10 miler. The course was a flat and fast 5 mile loop, which can be mentally hard when doing the 10 miler. The course was flat through mostly residential areas, which was... Continue Reading →

Blarney & Stone 15K

This was my first year running the Blarney & Stone 15K trail run. The terrain was mostly hiking trails which, for me, are difficult to navigate as I like to take it slow on trails to prevent injury. The race registration was $34 and included a short sleeve tech shirt and a egg and pancake... Continue Reading →

Spotify Playlist

I CANNOT train without music. I can run a race without headphones, but when I’m out there alone logging in miles I NEED music. I prefer pop or hip-hop, I think this is due to my Jersey Shore roots. You can download my Spotify Playlist. It includes Drake, Eminem and Taylor Swift and others. What... Continue Reading →


Today for the first time in over 5 years I ran on a treadmill. I HATE treadmills. Today’s weather caused freezing rain and slick roads. Since I’m still healing from my broken arm, I decided to stay in doors rather than chance another slip and fall. I’m impressed by this new feature in treadmills to... Continue Reading →

My first impression when I put them on my feet was that the tongue is thinner. During my first run, my toe went numb and... Continue Reading →

Athleta Tights Review

A few years ago, I moved from sunny San Antonio, Texas to State College, Pennsylvania.. Since this move I have struggled to actively run in cold temperatures. I tried wearing sweat pants but the baggy fit of sweat pants becomes annoying after 3 miles. I tried tights under sweat pants to keep the chafing away,... Continue Reading →

Iron Yoga Review

The recent cold temperature makes me want to stay inside. Something about 10° weather with a wind chill does not motivate me to go outside. On one particular run I set out to finish 4 miles, but by mile 3 my phone  (music) stopped working from the cold. To compensate for running I’ve turned to... Continue Reading →
